|New International Version (© 2011)|
For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.
King James Bible
For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
American Standard Version
For as the sufferings of Christ abound unto us, even so our comfort also aboundeth through Christ.
Young's Literal Translation
because, as the sufferings of the Christ do abound to us, so through the Christ doth abound also our comfort;
2 Corinthians 1:5 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The sufferings of Christ - Suffering endured for the cause of Christ: such as persecutions, hardships, and privations of different kinds.
Our consolation also aboundeth - We stood as well, as firmly, and as easily, in the heaviest trial, as in the lightest; because the consolation was always proportioned to the trial and difficulty. Hence we learn, that he who is upheld in a slight trial need not fear a great one; for if he be faithful, his consolation shall abound, as his sufferings abound. Is it not as easy for a man to lift one hundred pounds' weight, as it is for an infant to lift a few ounces? The proportion of strength destroys the comparative difficulty.
