2 Corinthians 1:23-24

Context
Why Paul Postponed His Visit

1:23 Now I appeal to God as my witness, 1  that to spare 2  you I did not come again to Corinth. 3  1:24 I do not mean that we rule over your faith, but we are workers with you for your joy, because by faith you stand firm. 4 

1 tn Grk “I call upon God as witness against my soul.” Normally this implies an appeal for help (L&N 33.176).

2 tn Here φειδόμενος (feidomeno") has been translated as a telic participle.

3 sn Paul had promised to come again to visit (see 2 Cor 1:15, 24) but explains here why he had changed his plans.

map For location see JP1 C2; JP2 C2; JP3 C2; JP4 C2.

4 tn Or “because you stand firm in the faith.”
