English Revised Version

2 Corinthians 9

He yieldeth the reason why, though he knew their forwardness, yet he sent Titus and his brethren beforehand.

2 Corinthians 9:1 For as touching the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you: 2 Corinthians 9:2 for I know your readiness, of which I glory on your behalf to them of Macedonia, that Achaia hath been prepared for a year past; and your zeal hath stirred up very many of them. 2 Corinthians 9:3 But I have sent the brethren, that our glorying on your behalf may not be made void in this respect; that, even as I said, ye may be prepared: 2 Corinthians 9:4 lest by any means, if there come with me any of Macedonia, and find you unprepared, we (that we say not, ye) should be put to shame in this confidence. 2 Corinthians 9:5 I thought it necessary therefore to entreat the brethren, that they would go before unto you, and make up beforehand your aforepromised bounty, that the same might be ready, as a matter of bounty, and not of extortion.

And he proceedeth in stirring them up to a bountiful alms, as being but a kind of sowing seed,

2 Corinthians 9:6 But this [I say], He that soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he that soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 2 Corinthians 9:7 [Let] each man [do] according as he hath purposed in his heart; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound unto you; that ye, having always all sufficiency in everything, may abound unto every good work: 2 Corinthians 9:9 as it is written, He hath scattered abroad, he hath given to the poor; His righteousness abideth for ever.

which shall return a great increase to them,

2 Corinthians 9:10 And he that supplieth seed to the sower and bread for food, shall supply and multiply your seed for sowing, and increase the fruits of your righteousness: 2 Corinthians 9:11 ye being enriched in everything unto all liberality, which worketh through us thanksgiving to God. 2 Corinthians 9:12 For the ministration of this service not only filleth up the measure of the wants of the saints, but aboundeth also through many thanksgivings unto God;

and occasion a great sacrifice of thanksgivings unto God.

2 Corinthians 9:13 seeing that through the proving [of you] by this ministration they glorify God for the obedience of your confession unto the gospel of Christ, and for the liberality of [your] contribution unto them and unto all; 2 Corinthians 9:14 while they themselves also, with supplication on your behalf, long after you by reason of the exceeding grace of God in you. 2 Corinthians 9:15 Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift.
