| ||2 Corinthians 1:3-7
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,
4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those
in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
5 For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives,
so also through Christ our comfort overflows.
6 If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation;
if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you
patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer.
7 And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you
share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.
