2 Corinthians 4:8

2 Corinthians 4:8 - We are troubled on every side; yet not distressed; perplexed; yet not in despair;

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;

2 Cor 4:8 | NIV | Other Versions | Context


This verse comes amidst Paul’s second epistle to the Church of Corinth, and here Paul was most likely referring to the apostles. Perhaps it was equally relevant to the believers of the Early Church, and almost as relatable to us modern Christians too (though perhaps in very different ways). Verses 8 and 9 of this chapter reads as one – however, it is notable that of the 4 pairs of descriptives used in these 2 verses, the pair in verse 8 focuses on the inner self; whereas the pair in verse 9 explores the external factors. In today’s study, we will focus on the internal, emotional issues that the apostles faced and examine how modern Christians like us today can still find comfort.
