2 Corinthians 9:2-4 Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)

For I know your eagerness, which I am boasting about you to the Macedonians— that “Achaia has been prepared [to give] since last year”. And your zeal stirred-up the majority. But I sent the brothers in order that our boast about you might not be made-empty in this respect: in order that, just as I was saying, you may be prepared, that we should not somehow be put-to-shame (that I not say you) in this confidence[a] if Macedonians come with me and find you unprepared.


  1. 2 Corinthians 9:4 Or, project, undertaking.

2 Corinthians 9:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

For I know your eagerness to help, and I have been boasting about it to the Macedonians, telling them that since last year you in Achaia were ready to give; and your enthusiasm has stirred most of them to action. But I am sending the brothers in order that our boasting about you in this matter should not prove hollow, but that you may be ready, as I said you would be. For if any Macedonians come with me and find you unprepared, we—not to say anything about you—would be ashamed of having been so confident.
