2. Pressed Down unto Despair
vv.5-11

5 For even as the 1asufferings of 2the Christ abound unto us, so through 2the Christ our comfort also abounds.

6 But whether we are aafflicted, it is for your comforting and salvation; or whether we are comforted, it is for your comforting, which operates in the endurance of the same sufferings which we also suffer.

7 And our hope for you is firm, knowing that as you are partakers of the asufferings, so also you are of the comfort.

8 For we do not want you to be aignorant, brothers, of our affliction which befell us in bAsia, that we were excessively 1cburdened, beyond our power, so that we 2ddespaired even of 3living.

9 1Indeed we ourselves had the 2response of adeath in ourselves, that we should bnot base our cconfidence on ourselves but don 3God, who eraises the dead;

10 Who has adelivered us out of so great a death, and 1will deliver us; in whom we have bhoped that He will also yet deliver us,

11 If you also 1help in this by apetition on our behalf, that for the 2gift to us through many, bthanks may be given by many 3persons on our behalf.
