Tyndale’s New Testament (1534)

O ye Corinthyans oure mouth is open vnto you. Oure herte is made large: ye are in no strayte in vs but are in a strayte in youre awne bowelles: I promyse you lyke rewarde with me as to my childre. Set youreselues therfore at large


O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged. Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own bowels. Now for a recompence in the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be ye also enlarged.

2 cor 6 11 131
2 Cor 6.11-13


We have spoken freely to you, Corinthians, and opened wide our hearts to you. We are not withholding our affection from you, but you are withholding yours from us. As a fair exchange-- I speak as to my children-- open wide your hearts also.


We have spoken frankly to you Corinthians; our heart is wide open to you. There is no restriction in our affections, but only in yours. In return-- I speak as to children-- open wide your hearts also.


Oh, dear Corinthian friends! We have spoken honestly with you. Our hearts are open to you. If there is a problem between us, it is not because of a lack of love on our part, but because you have withheld your love from us. I am talking now as I would to my own children. Open your hearts to us!
