5 For as we share abundantly in Christ's sufferings, so
through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.
6 If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and
salvation; and if we are comforted, it is for your
comfort, which you experience when you patiently
endure the same sufferings that we suffer. 7 Our hope
for you is unshaken, for we know that as you share in
our sufferings, you will also share in our comfort.
