2 Corinthians 5:11

Context
The Message of Reconciliation

5:11 Therefore, because we know the fear of the Lord, 1  we try to persuade 2  people, 3  but we are well known 4  to God, and I hope we are well known to your consciences too.

2 Corinthians 5:20

Context
5:20 Therefore we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making His plea 5  through us. We plead with you 6  on Christ’s behalf, “Be reconciled to God!”

1 tn Or “because we know what it means to fear the Lord.”

2 tn The present tense of πείθομεν (peiqomen) has been translated as a conative present.

3 tn Grk “men”; but ἄνθρωπος (anqrwpo") is generic here since clearly both men and women are in view (Paul did not attempt to win only men to the gospel he preached).

4 tn Or “clearly evident.” BDAG 1048 s.v. φανερόω 2.b.β has “θεῷ πεφανερώμεθα we are well known to God 2 Cor 5:11a, cp. 11b; 11:6 v.l.”

5 tn Or “as though God were begging.”

6 tn Or “we beg you.”
