In the first part of this article, a survey of the use of παρακαλέω or παράκληοις in the undisputed letters and its three major meanings was given: to request strongly, to exhort and to encourage or comfort. In the second part of the article, the LXX background of the unprecedented use of παρακαλέω or παράκληοις in 2 Corinthians 1:3-7 and 7:4.5-13, where God is the subject, was discussed. The conclusion was that when writing 2 Corinthians 1:3-7 and 7:4.5-13 Paul made use of the prophet Isaiah's Book of Comfort and in his use of παρακαλέω or παράκληοις allows himself to be influenced by the way the LXX translator uses παρακαλέω to translate נתם
