2 Corinthians 1:17-19

Context
1:17 Therefore when I was planning to do this, I did not do so without thinking about what I was doing, did I? 1  Or do I make my plans 2  according to mere human standards 3  so that I would be saying 4  both “Yes, yes” and “No, no” at the same time? 1:18 But as God is faithful, our message to you is not “Yes” and “No.” 1:19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, the one who was proclaimed among you by us – by me and Silvanus 5  and Timothy – was not “Yes” and “No,” but it has always been “Yes” in him.

1 tn The Greek construction anticipates a negative answer. This is indicated in the translation by the ‘tag’ question “did I?” at the end of the sentence.

2 tn Grk “the things that I plan, do I plan (them).”

3 tn Grk “according to the flesh.”

4 tn Grk “so that with me there should be.”

5 sn Silvanus is usually considered to be the same person as Silas (L&N 93.340).
