1 tn Grk “just as we have been shown mercy”; ἠλεήθημεν (hlehqhmen) has been translated as a “divine passive” which is a circumlocution for God as the active agent. For clarity this was converted to an active construction with God as subject in the translation.

2 tn Or “we do not lose heart.”

3 tn Or “do not lose heart.”

4 tn Grk “our outer man.”

5 tn Grk “our inner [man].”
