2 Corinthians 1:23–2:11

23 Moreover yI call God for a record upon my soul, that zto spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth. 24 Not for that we ahave dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for bby faith ye stand.

2 But I determined this with myself, athat I would not come again to you in heaviness. bFor if I make you sorry, who is he then that maketh me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me? And I wrote this same unto you, clest, when I came, I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice; dhaving confidence in you all, that emy joy is the joy of you all. For out of much affliction and fanguish of heart gI wrote unto you with many tears; gnot that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.

But hif any have caused grief, hhhe hath not grieved me, but iin part: that I may not overcharge you all. Sufficient to such a man is this ||jpunishment, which was inflicted kof many. So that contrariwise lye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow. Wherefore I beseech you that ye would mconfirm your love toward him. For to this end also did I write, that I might know nthe proof of you, whether oye be obedient in all things. 10 To whom pye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it ||qin the rperson of Christ; 11 Lest sSatan should tget an advantage of us: for uwe are not ignorant of his wdevices.
