2 Corinthians 1:4-7

Context
1:4 who comforts us in all our troubles 1  so that we may be able to comfort those experiencing any trouble 2  with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 1:5 For just as the sufferings 3  of Christ 4  overflow 5  toward us, so also our comfort through Christ overflows to you. 6  1:6 But if we are afflicted, 7  it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort that you experience in your patient endurance of the same sufferings that we also suffer. 1:7 And our hope for you is steadfast because we know that as you share in 8  our sufferings, so also you will share in 9  our comfort.

1 tn Or “our trials”; traditionally, “our affliction.” The term θλῖψις (qliyi") refers to trouble (including persecution) that involves direct suffering (L&N 22.2).

2 tn Or “any trials”; traditionally, “any affliction.”

3 tn This Greek word translated “sufferings” here (πάθημα, paqhma) is a different one than the one Paul uses for his own afflictions/persecutions (θλῖψις, qliyi") in v. 4.

4 tn I.e., suffering incurred by Paul as a consequence of his relationship to Christ. The genitive could be considered to have a causative nuance here.

5 tn Traditionally, “abound” (here and throughout this section).

6 tn The words “to you” are not in the Greek text, but are implied by the statements in the following verse.

7 tn Or “are troubled.”

8 tn Grk “as you are sharers in.”

9 tn Grk “will be sharers in.”
