5 But aif any has caused sorrow, he has caused sorrow not to me, but in some degree—1in order not to say too much—to all of you.
6 Sufficient for such a one is athis punishment which was inflicted by the majority,
7 so that on the contrary you should rather aforgive and comfort him, otherwise such a one might be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow.
8 Wherefore I urge you to reaffirm your love for him.
9 For to this end also aI wrote, so that I might 1bput you to the test, whether you are cobedient in all things.
10 But one whom you forgive anything, I forgive also; for indeed what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, I did it for your sakes ain the presence of Christ,
11 so that no advantage would be taken of us by aSatan, for bwe are not ignorant of his schemes.
