2 Corinthians 1:15

Confidence (pepoithsei).
This late word (LXX Philo, Josephus) is condemned by the Atticists, but Paul uses it a half dozen times (3:4 also).

I was minded to come (eboulomhn eltein).
Imperfect, I was wishing to come, picturing his former state of mind.

Before unto you (proteron prov umav).
This was his former plan (proteron) while in Ephesus to go to Achaia directly from Ephesus. This he confesses in verse 16 "and by you to pass into Macedonia."

That ye might have a second benefit (ina deuteran xarin sxhte).
Or second "joy" if we accept xaran with Westcott and Hort. This would be a real second blessing (or joy) if they should have two visits from Paul.
