From Textus Receptus

  • 1 But I determined this within myself, that I would not come again to you in sorrow.
  • 2 Because, if I make you sorrowful, then who is he who makes me glad but the one who is made sorrowful by me?
  • 3 And I wrote this very thing to you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow from those of whom I ought to rejoice, having confidence in you all that my joy is the joy of you all.
  • 4 Because, out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote to you, with many tears, not that you should be grieved, but that you might know the love which I have so abundantly for you.
  • 5 But if anyone has caused grief, he has not grieved me, except partially; so that I may not be harsh to you all.
  • 6 This punishment which was inflicted by many is sufficient for such a man,
  • 7 so that, on the contrary, you ought rather to forgive and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with too much sorrow.
  • 8 Therefore I urge you to reaffirm your love to him.
  • 9 Because, this is why I also wrote, that I might put you to the test, whether you are obedient in all things.
  • 10 To whom you forgive anything, I also forgive. Because, if I have forgiven anything, to whom I forgive it, I have forgiven it for your sakes in the person of Christ,
  • 11 lest Satan should take advantage of us; because we are not ignorant of his devices.
  • 12 Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ’s gospel, and a door was opened to me by the Lord,
  • 13 I had no rest in my spirit, because I did not find Titus my brother; but taking my leave of them, I departed for Macedonia.
  • 14 Now thanks be to God who always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the fragrance of His knowledge in every place through us.
  • 15 Because, we are to God the sweet fragrance of Christ among those who are saved and among those who are perishing.
  • 16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?
  • 17 Because, we are not, as so many, who corrupt the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ.
