2 Corinthians 1:2-5
- Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
- Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
- Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
- For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
