Second Corinthians 2

2:1 But I determined this with myself, that I would not come
 again to you in heaviness.
2:2 For if I make you sorry, who is he then that maketh me glad,
 but the same who is made sorry by me?
2:3 And I wrote this same to you, lest, coming I should have
 sorrow from them by whom I ought to rejoice; having confidence
 in you all, that my joy is [the joy] of you all.
2:4 For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote to
 you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye
 might know the love which I have more abundantly to you.
2:5 But if any hath caused grief, he hath not grieved me, but in
 part: that I may not overcharge you all.
2:6 Sufficient to such a man [is] this punishment, which [was
 inflicted] by many.
2:7 So that on the other hand, ye [ought] rather to forgive
 [him], and comfort [him], lest perhaps such one should be
 swallowed up with excessive sorrow.
2:8 Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm [your] love
 towards him.
2:9 For to this end also I wrote, that I might know the proof of
 you, whether ye are obedient in all things.
2:10 To whom ye forgive any thing, I [forgive] also: for if I
 forgave any thing, to whom I forgave [it], for your sakes [I
 forgave it], in the person of Christ;
2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not
 ignorant of his devices.
2:12 Furthermore, when I came to Troas to [preach] the gospel of
 Christ, and a door was opened to me by the Lord,
2:13 I had no rest in my spirit, because I found not Titus my
 brother; but taking my leave of them, I went from thence into
2:14 Now thanks [be] to God, who always causeth us to triumph in
 Christ, and maketh manifest the savor of his knowledge by us in
 every place.
2:15 For we are to God a sweet savor of Christ, in them that are
 saved, and in them that perish:
2:16 To the one [we are] the savor of death to death; and to the
 other the savor of life to life. And who [is] sufficient for
 these things?
2:17 For we are not as many, who corrupt the word of God: but as
 from sincerity, but as from God, in the sight of God we speak
 in Christ.
