2 Corinthians 2
1But I determined this with myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness.
2For if I make you sorry, who is he then that makes me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me?
3And I wrote this same unto you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice; having confidence in you all, that my joy is [the joy] of you all.
4For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that you2f should be grieved, but that you2f might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.
5But if any have caused grief, he has not grieved me, but in part: that I may not overcharge you all.
6Sufficient to such a man [is] this punishment, which [was inflicted] of many.
7So that contrariwise you2f [ought] rather to forgive [him], and comfort [him], lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow.
8For what reason I beseech (to call upon; appeal; beg) you that you2f would confirm [your] love toward him.
9For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether you2f be obedient in all things.
10To whom you2f forgive any thing, I [forgive] also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave [it], for your sakes [forgave I it] in the person of Moshiach [Messiah];
11Lest Satan [the adversary] should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
12Furthermore, when I came to Troas (Trojan) [penetrated] to [preach] Moshiach [Messiah]’s Gospel (joyful message), and a door was opened unto me of the Lord - Kurios,
13I had no rest in my Spirit [Ruach], because I found not Titus [nurse] my brother: but taking my leave of them, I went from there into Macedonia [extended land].
14Now thanks [be] unto God-The Father, which always causes us to triumph in Moshiach [Messiah], and makes manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
15For we are unto God-The Father a sweet savour of Moshiach [Messiah], in them that are saved, and in them that perish:
16To the one [we are] the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who [is] sufficient for these things?
17For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God-The Father: but as of with incorruption, but as of God-The Father, in the sight of God-The Father speak we in Moshiach [Messiah].
