2 Corinthians 1:15-17

1:15 And with this confidence I intended to come to you first so that you would get a second opportunity to see us, 1  1:16 and through your help to go on into Macedonia and then from Macedonia to come back 2  to you and be helped on our way into Judea by you. 1:17 Therefore when I was planning to do this, I did not do so without thinking about what I was doing, did I? 3  Or do I make my plans 4  according to mere human standards 5  so that I would be saying 6  both “Yes, yes” and “No, no” at the same time?

1 tn Grk “a second grace,” “a second favor” (used figuratively of a second visit by Paul).

2 tn Grk “come again.”

3 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.

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

5 tn Grk “according to the flesh.”

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