11 Knowing, therefore, the fear of YHWH, we persuade men; but we have been made known to God. And I also hope to have been made known in your consciences.
11 Knowing therefore the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest unto God; and I hope that we are made manifest also in your consciences.
11 Therefore, having knowledge of the fear of the Lord, we appeal to men, but we are made manifest before God. Yet I hope, too, that we may be made manifest in your consciences.
12 For we do not commend ourselves again to you, but give to you an opportunity of boasting on our behalf, so that you may have [an answer] for those who boast in appearance and not in heart.
12 We are not again commending ourselves unto you, but [speak] as giving you occasion of glorying on our behalf, that ye may have wherewith to answer them that glory in appearance, and not in heart.
12 We are not boasting of ourselves to you, but we give you occasion to be proud of us, before those who glory as hypocrites but who are not sincere in heart.
13 For if we were beside ourselves, it [was] for God; or if we are of sound mind, [it is] for you.
13 For whether we are beside ourselves, it is unto God; or whether we are of sober mind, it is unto you.
13 For if we go wrong, we answer to God, and if we go straight, it is for you.
14 For the love of Christ compels us, having concluded this: that if One died for all, then all died;
14 For the charity of Christ urges us on, in consideration of this: that if one died for all, then all have died.
15 and He died for all, so that they who live should live no longer for themselves, but for the [One] who died for them and rose again.
15 And that he died for all, that those who live may not henceforth live for themselves, but for him who died and rose for them.
16 Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know [Him thus] no longer.
16 Wherefore we henceforth know no man after the flesh: even though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now we know [him so] no more.
16 And now from henceforth we do not know any one in the body: even though once we had known Christ in the body, we no longer know him now.
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old things passed away; behold, all things have become new.
17 So if anyone is a new creature in Christ, what is old has passed away. Behold, all things have been made new.
17 Whoever from now on is a follower of Christ, is a new creation: old things have passed away;
18 And all things are of God, who reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and who gave to us the ministry of this reconciliation,
18 But all things are of God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and gave unto us the ministry of reconciliation;
19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not reckoning their transgressions to them, and committing to us the word of this reconciliation.
19 For God was in Christ, who has reconciled the world with his majesty, not counting their sins against them; and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then, we serve as ambassadors for Christ, as though God were appealing through us: we implore [you] on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God.
20 We are ambassadors therefore on behalf of Christ, as though God were entreating by us: we beseech [you] on behalf of Christ, be ye reconciled to God.
20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, so that God is exhorting through us. We beseech you for Christ: be reconciled to God.
21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
21 Him who knew no sin he made [to be] sin on our behalf; that we might become the righteousness of God in him.
21 For God made him who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the justice of God in him.
6:1 And working together [with Him,] we also urge that you not receive the grace of God in vain.
1 But, as a help to you, we exhort you not to receive the grace of God in vain.
1 SO we beseech you, as helpers, that the grace of God which you have received may not be in vain among you.
6:2 For He says: "In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the day of salvation I have helped you."Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
2 (for he saith, At an acceptable time I hearkened unto thee, And in a day of salvation did I succor thee: behold, now is the acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation)
6:3 We give no occasion for offense in anything, lest the ministry be blamed,
3 giving no occasion of stumbling in anything, that our ministration be not blamed;
6:4 but in everything commending ourselves as ministers of God: in much endurance, in tribulations, in hardships, in distresses,
4 But in all things, let us exhibit ourselves as ministers of God with great patience: through tribulation, difficulties, and distress;
4 But in all things let us show ourselves, to be the ministers of God, in much patience, in tribulations, in necessities, in imprisonment,
6:5 in stripes, in imprisonments, in disturbances, in labors, in sleepless nights, in fastings;
5 despite wounds, imprisonment, and rebellion; with hard work, vigilance, and fasting;
5 In scourgings, in bonds, in tumults, in toilings, in vigils, in fastings;
6:6 in purity, in knowledge, in longsuffering, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in sincere love,
6 by chastity, knowledge, and longsuffering; in pleasantness, in the Holy Spirit, and in unfeigned charity;
6 By purity, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love,
6:7 through the word of truth, through the power of God, through the weapons of righteousness on the right hand and on the left hand,
7 in the word of truth, in the power of God; by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
7 with the Word of truth, with the power of God, and with the armor of justice to the right and to the left;
6:8 by honor and dishonor, by ill repute and good repute; as deceivers, and yet true;
8 through honor and dishonor, despite good reports and bad, whether seen as deceivers or truth-tellers, whether ignored or acknowledged;
8 By honour and dishonour, by praise and reproach, as deceivers, and yet true;
6:9 as being unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as being disciplined, and not being put to death;
9 as unknown, and [yet] well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;
9 as if dying and yet truly alive; as if chastised and yet not subdued;
6:10 as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.
10 as if sorrowful and yet always rejoicing; as if needy and yet enriching many; as if having nothing and possessing everything.
