Second Corinthians 9


9:1 For as concerning the ministering to the saints, it is
 superfluous for me to write to you:
9:2 For I know the forwardness of your mind, for which I boast
 of you to them of Macedonia, that Achaia was ready a year ago;
 and your zeal hath incited very many.
9:3 Yet have I sent the brethren, lest our boasting of you
 should be in vain in this behalf; that, as I said, ye may be
 ready:
9:4 Lest haply if they of Macedonia come with me, and find you
 unprepared, we (that we say not, ye) should be ashamed in this
 same confident boasting.
9:5 Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren,
 that they would go before to you, and make up before hand your
 bounty, of which ye had notice before, that the same might be
 ready, as [a matter of] bounty, and not [of] covetousness.
9:6 But this [I say], He who soweth sparingly, shall reap also
 sparingly; and he who soweth bountifully, shall reap also
 bountifully.
9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, [so let
 him give]; not grudgingly, or by constraint: for God loveth a
 cheerful giver.
9:8 And God [is] able to make all grace abound towards you; that
 ye always having all sufficiency in all [things], may abound to
 every good work:
9:9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed; he hath given to the
 poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.
9:10 Now may he that ministereth seed to the sower, both
 minister bread for [your] food, and multiply your seed sown,
 and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)
9:11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which
 causeth through us thanksgiving to God.
9:12 For the administration of this service not only supplieth
 the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many
 thanksgivings to God;
9:13 While by the experiment of this ministration they glorify
 God for your professed subjection to the gospel of Christ, and
 for [your] liberal distribution to them, and to all [men];
9:14 And by their prayer for you, who long after you, for the
 exceeding grace of God in you.
9:15 Thanks [be] to God for his unspeakable gift.
