2 Corinthians 9:9-13Context
9:9 Just as it is written, “He 1 has scattered widely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness remains forever.” 2 9:10 Now God 3 who provides seed for the sower and bread for food will provide and multiply your supply of seed and will cause the harvest of your righteousness to grow. 9:11 You will be enriched in every way so that you may be generous on every occasion, 4 which is producing through us thanksgiving to God, 9:12 because the service of this ministry is not only providing for 5 the needs of the saints but is also overflowing with many thanks to God. 9:13 Through the evidence 6 of this service 7 they will glorify God because of your obedience to your confession in the gospel of Christ and the generosity of your sharing 8 with them and with everyone.
