2 Corinthians 7
Paul's Confidence1 [3these 2then 1Having] promises, beloved, we should cleanse ourselves from all contamination of the flesh and spirit, complete holiness in fear of God. 2 Have space for us; no one we wronged, no one we corrupted, no one we took advantage of. 3 [2not 3for 4condemnation 1I speak]; for I have described beforehand that [2in 3our hearts 1you are] for the dying together and living together. 4 Great is it to me to be in an open manner with you, great is it to me in boasting over you. I have been filled with comfort; I superabound in joy at all our affliction. 5 For even our coming into Macedonia, [3no 2had 4relaxation 1our flesh], but in every way being afflicted; from outside -- battles; from inside -- fears. 6 But the one comforting the humble, comforts us -- God, by the arrival of Titus. 7 [2not 3only 1But] in his arrival, but also in the comfort in which he was comforted by you, announcing to us your longing, your grieving, your zeal for me; so as for me more to rejoice. 8 For if even I grieved you in the letter, I do not repent, if even I repented; for I see that that letter, if even for an hour, that it grieved you. 9 Now I rejoice, not that you were grieved, but that you were grieved into repentance. For you were grieved according to God, that in nothing you should suffer loss by us. 10 For [5towards 6God 1distress 4repentance 7unto 8deliverance 3an irrevocable 2manufactures]; but the [2of the 3world 1distress 5death 4manufactures]. 11 For behold, this same thing [3towards 4God 2fretted 1you], how much it manufactured in you -- diligence, but defense, but indignation, but fear, but longing, but zeal, but punishment. In every way you commended yourselves to be pure in the matter. 12 Then if even I wrote to you, it was not because of the one doing wrong, nor because of the one being wronged; but because of the manifesting our diligence, the one for you, to you before God. 13 On account of this we have been comforted over your comfort; but more exceedingly rather we rejoiced at the joy of Titus, that [2has been put at rest 1his spirit] by all of you. 14 For if in anything [2to him 3about 4you 1I have boasted], I was not disgraced; but as [2all things 4in 5truth 1we spoke 3to you], so also our boasting unto Titus [2truth 1became]. 15 And his feelings of compassion [2more exceedingly 3towards 4you 1are], calling to mind the [2of all 3of you 1obedience], as with fear and trembling you received him. 16 I rejoice that in everything I take courage in you.
