ContextPaul's Change of Plans
12For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward. 13For we write none other things to you, than what you read or acknowledge; and I trust you shall acknowledge even to the end; 14As also you have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as you also are our's in the day of the Lord Jesus. 15And in this confidence I was minded to come to you before, that you might have a second benefit; 16And to pass by you into Macedonia, and to come again out of Macedonia to you, and of you to be brought on my way toward Judaea. 17When I therefore was thus minded, did I use lightness? or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be yes yes, and no no? 18But as God is true, our word toward you was not yes and no. 19For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yes and no, but in him was yes. 20For all the promises of God in him are yes, and in him Amen, to the glory of God by us. 21Now he which establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, is God; 22Who has also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. 23Moreover I call God for a record on my soul, that to spare you I came not as yet to Corinth. 24Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith you stand.
