8:1 Moreover [G1161] , brethren [G80] , we do [G1107] you [G5213] to wit [G1107] of the grace [G5485] of God [G2316] bestowed [G1325] on [G1722] the churches [G1577] of Macedonia [G3109] ;

8:2 How that [G3754] in [G1722] a great [G4183] trial [G1382] of affliction [G2347] the abundance [G4050] of their [G846] joy [G5479] and [G2532] their [G846] deep [G899] poverty [G2596] [G4432] abounded [G4052] unto [G1519] the riches [G4149] of their [G846] liberality [G572] .(liberality: Gr. simplicity)

8:3 For [G3754] to [G2596] [their] power [G1411] , I bear record [G3140] , yea, and [G2532] beyond [G5228] [their] power [G1411] [they were] willing of themselves [G830] ;

8:4 Praying [G1189] us [G2257] with [G3326] much [G4183] intreaty [G3874] that we [G2248] would receive [G1209] the gift [G5485] , and [G2532] [take upon us] the fellowship [G2842] of the ministering [G1248] to [G1519] the saints [G40] .

8:5 And [G2532] [this they did], not [G3756] as [G2531] we hoped [G1679] , but [G235] first [G4412] gave [G1325] their own selves [G1438] to the Lord [G2962] , and [G2532] unto us [G2254] by [G1223] the will [G2307] of God [G2316] .

8:6 Insomuch [G1519] that we [G2248] desired [G3870] Titus [G5103] , that [G2443] as [G2531] he had begun [G4278] , so [G3779] he would [G2005] also [G2532] finish [G2005] in [G1519] you [G5209] the same [G5026] grace [G5485] also [G2532] .(grace: or, gift)

8:7 Therefore [G235] , as [G5618] ye abound [G4052] in [G1722] every [G3956] [thing, in] faith [G4102] , and [G2532] utterance [G3056] , and [G2532] knowledge [G1108] , and [G2532] [in] all [G3956] diligence [G4710] , and [G2532] [in] your [G5216] love [G26] [G1537] to [G1722] us [G2254] , [see] that [G2443] ye abound [G4052] in [G1722] this [G5026] grace [G5485] also [G2532] .

8:8 I speak [G3004] not [G3756] by [G2596] commandment [G2003] , but [G235] by occasion [G1223] of the forwardness [G4710] of others [G2087] , and [G2532] to prove [G1381] the sincerity [G1103] of your [G5212] love [G26] .

8:9 For [G1063] ye know [G1097] the grace [G5485] of our [G2257] Lord [G2962] Jesus [G2424] Christ [G5547] , that [G3754] , though he was [G5607] rich [G4145] , yet for [G1223] your [G5209] sakes [G1223] he became poor [G4433] , that [G2443] ye [G5210] through his [G1565] poverty [G4432] might be rich [G4147] .

8:10 And [G2532] herein [G1722] [G5129] I give [G1325] [my] advice [G1106] : for [G1063] this [G5124] is expedient [G4851] for you [G5213] , who [G3748] have begun before [G4278] , not [G3756] only [G3440] to do [G4160] , but [G235] also [G2532] to be forward [G2309] a year [G4070] ago [G575] .(forward: Gr. willing)

8:11 Now [G3570] [G1161] therefore [G2532] perform [G2005] the doing [G4160] [of it]; that [G3704] as [G2509] [there was] a readiness [G4288] to will [G2309] , so [G3779] [there may be] a performance [G2005] also [G2532] out of [G1537] that which ye have [G2192] .

8:12 For [G1063] if there [G1487] be first [G4295] a willing mind [G4288] , [it is] accepted [G2144] according to [G2526] that [G1437] a man [G5100] hath [G2192] , [and] not [G3756] according to that [G2526] he hath [G2192] not [G3756] .

8:13 For [G1063] [I mean] not [G3756] that [G2443] other men [G243] be eased [G425] , and [G1161] ye [G5213] burdened [G2347] :

8:14 But [G235] by [G1537] an equality [G2471] , [that] now [G3568] at [G1722] this time [G2540] your [G5216] abundance [G4051] [may be a supply] for [G1519] their [G1565] want [G5303] , that [G2443] their [G1565] abundance [G4051] also [G2532] may be [G1096] [a supply] for [G1519] your [G5216] want [G5303] : that [G3704] there may be [G1096] equality [G2471] :

8:15 As [G2531] it is written [G1125] , He that [had gathered [gre3588] ] much [G4183] had [G4121] nothing [G3756] over [G4121] ; and [G2532] he that [had gathered [gre3588] ] little [G3641] had [G1641] no [G3756] lack [G1641] .

8:16 But [G1161] thanks [G5485] [be] to God [G2316] , which [G3588] put [G1325] the same [G846] earnest care [G4710] into [G1722] the heart [G2588] of Titus [G5103] for [G5228] you [G5216] .

8:17 For [G3754] indeed [G3303] he accepted [G1209] the exhortation [G3874] ; but [G1161] being [G5225] more forward [G4707] , of his own accord [G830] he went [G1831] unto [G4314] you [G5209] .

8:18 And [G1161] we have sent [G4842] with [G3326] him [G846] the brother [G80] , whose [G3739] praise [G1868] [is] in [G1722] the gospel [G2098] throughout [G1223] all [G3956] the churches [G1577] ;

8:19 And [G1161] not [G3756] [that] only [G3440] , but [G235] who was [G5500] also [G2532] chosen [G5500] of [G5259] the churches [G1577] to travel [G4898] with us [G2257] with [G4862] this [G5026] grace [G5485] , which [G3588] is administered [G1247] by [G5259] us [G2257] to [G4314] the glory [G1391] of the same [G846] Lord [G2962] , and [G2532] [declaration of] your [G5216] ready mind [G4288] :(grace: or, gift)

8:20 Avoiding [G4724] this [G5124] , that no [G3361] man [G5100] should blame [G3469] us [G2248] in [G1722] this [G5026] abundance [G100] which [G3588] is administered [G1247] by [G5259] us [G2257] :

8:21 Providing [G4306] for honest things [G2570] , not [G3756] only [G3440] in the sight [G1799] of the Lord [G2962] , but [G235] also [G2532] in the sight [G1799] of men [G444] .

8:22 And [G1161] we have sent [G4842] with them [G846] our [G2257] brother [G80] , whom [G3739] we have [G1381] oftentimes [G4178] proved [G1381] [G5607] diligent [G4705] in [G1722] many things [G4183] , but [G1161] now [G3570] much [G4183] more diligent [G4707] , upon the great [G4183] confidence [G4006] which [G3588] [I have] in [G1519] you [G5209] .(I have: or, he hath)

8:23 Whether [G1535] [any do enquire] of [G5228] Titus [G5103] , [he is] my [G1699] partner [G2844] and [G2532] fellowhelper [G4904] concerning [G1519] you [G5209] : or [G1535] our [G2257] brethren [G80] [be enquired of, they are] the messengers [G652] of the churches [G1577] , [and] the glory [G1391] of Christ [G5547] .

8:24 Wherefore [G3767] shew ye [G1731] to [G1519] them [G846] , and [G2532] before [G1519] [G4383] the churches [G1577] , the proof [G1732] of your [G5216] love [G26] , and [G2532] of our [G2257] boasting [G2746] on [G5228] your [G5216] behalf [G5228] .
