2 Corinthians 2:5-17 "But if any have caused grief , he hath..." KJV - Online Bible Study But if any have caused grief , he hath not grieved me, but in part: that I may not overcharge youall. 6 Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many. 7 So thatcontrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow. 8 Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm your lovetoward him. 9 For to this end also did I write , that I might know the proof of you, whether ye beobedient in all things. 10 To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, towhom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ; 11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us : for we are not ignorant of his devices. 12 Furthermore, when I came to Troas topreach Christ's gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord, 13 I had no rest in my spirit,because I found not Titus my brother: but taking my leave of them, I went from thence intoMacedonia. 14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, andmaketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. 15 For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved , and in them that perish : 16 To the one we are thesavour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient forthese things? 17 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, butas of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.
