In this confidence I intended at first to come to you, so that you might twice receive a blessing; (2 Corinthians 1:15)

that is, to pass your way into Macedonia, and again from Macedonia to come to you, and by you to be helped on my journey to Judea. (2 Corinthians 1:16)

Therefore, I was not vacillating when I intended to do this, was I? Or what I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, so that with me there will be yes, yes and no, no at the same time? (2 Corinthians 1:17)

But as God is faithful, our word to you is not yes and no. (2 Corinthians 1:18)

For the Son of God, Christ Jesus, who was preached among you by us--by me and Silvanus and Timothy--was not yes and no, but is yes in Him. (2 Corinthians 1:19)

For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes; therefore also through Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us. (2 Corinthians 1:20)

Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and anointed us is God, (2 Corinthians 1:21)

who also sealed us and gave us the Spirit in our hearts as a pledge. (2 Corinthians 1:22)

But I call God as witness to my soul, that to spare you I did not come again to Corinth. (2 Corinthians 1:23)

Not that we lord it over your faith, but are workers with you for your joy; for in your faith you are standing firm. (2 Corinthians 1:24)
