ContextThe God of All Comfort
3Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4Who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted of God. 5For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds by Christ. 6And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. 7And our hope of you is steadfast, knowing, that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so shall you be also of the consolation. 8For we would not, brothers, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life: 9But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raises the dead: 10Who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us; 11You also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed on us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf.
