2 Corinthians 2:5-7

Forgive the Sinner

5Now a  if anyone has caused pain b  he has caused it not to me, but c  in some measurenot to put it too severely—to all of you. 6For such a one, d  this punishment by the majority is enough, 7so e  you should rather turn to forgive and comfort him, or he may be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow.
