But I determinedG2919 thisG5124 with myself,G1683 that I would not comeG2064 againG3825 to you in heaviness.G3077
For ifG1487 I makeG3076 you sorry,G3076 whoG5101 is he thenG2532 that makesG2165 me glad,G2165 but the same which is madeG3076 sorryG3076 by me?
And I wroteG1125 thisG5124 sameG846 to you,G5213 lest,G3363 when I came,G2064 I should haveG2192 sorrowG3077 from them of whomG3739 I oughtG1163 to rejoice;G5463 having confidenceG3982 in you all,G3956 that my joyG5479 is the joy of you all.G3956
For out of muchG4183 afflictionG2347 and anguishG4928 of heartG2588 I wroteG1125 to you with manyG4183 tears;G1144 not that you should be grieved,G3076 but that you might knowG1097 the loveG26 whichG3739 I haveG2192 moreG4056 abundantlyG4056 to you.
But ifG1487 anyG5100 haveG2192 causedG3076 grief,G3076 he has not grievedG3076 me, but in part:G3313 that I may not overchargeG1912 you all.G3956
SufficientG2425 to suchG5108 a man is thisG3778 punishment,G2009 whichG3588 was inflicted of many.G4119
SoG5620 that contrariwiseG5121 you ought ratherG3123 to forgiveG5483 him, and comfortG3870 him, lestG3381 perhapsG3381 suchG5108 a one should be swallowedG2666 up with overmuchG4055 sorrow.G3077
WhyG1352 I beseechG3870 you that you would confirmG2964 your loveG26 towardG1519 him.
For to thisG5124 end alsoG2532 did I write,G1125 that I might knowG1097 the proofG1382 of you, whetherG1487 you be obedientG5255 in allG3956 things.
To whomG3739 you forgiveG5483 anyG5100 thing, I forgiveG5483 also:G2532 for ifG1487 I forgaveG5483 anyG1536 thing, to whomG3739 I forgaveG5483 it, for yourG5209 sakes forgave I it in the personG4383 of Christ;G5547
LestG2443 G3361 SatanG4567 should getG4122 an advantageG4122 of us: for we are not ignorantG50 of his devices.G3540
Furthermore,G1161 when I cameG2064 to TroasG5174 to preach Christ'sG5547 gospel,G2098 and a doorG2374 was openedG455 to me of the Lord,G2962
I hadG2192 noG3756 restG425 in my spirit,G4151 because I foundG2147 not TitusG5103 my brother:G80 but taking my leaveG657 of them, I wentG1831 from there intoG1519 Macedonia.G3109
NowG1161 thanksG5485 be to God,G2316 which alwaysG3842 causesG2358 us to triumphG2358 in Christ,G5547 and makesG5319 manifestG5319 the aromaG3744 of his knowledgeG1108 by us in everyG3956 place.G5117
For we are to GodG2316 a sweetG2175 smellG2175 of Christ,G5547 in them that are saved,G4982 and in them that perish:G622
To the oneG3303 we are the smellG3744 of deathG2288 to death;G2288 and to the otherG3739 the smellG3744 of lifeG2222 to life.G2222 And whoG5101 is sufficientG2425 for theseG5023 things?
For we are not as many,G4183 which corruptG2585 the wordG3056 of God:G2316 but as of sincerity,G1505 but as of God,G2316 in the sightG2714 of GodG2316 speakG2980 we in Christ.G5547
