1 Corinthians 4:2121What do you wish? a Shall I come to you with a rod, or with love in a spirit of gentleness?
2 Corinthians 1:2323But b I call God to witness against me—it was c to spare you that I refrained from coming again to Corinth.
2 Corinthians 2:44For d I wrote to you out of much affliction and anguish of heart and with many tears, not to cause you pain but to let you know the abundant love that I have for you.
2 Corinthians 7:5-85For even e when we came into Macedonia, our bodies had no rest, but we were afflicted at every turn— f fighting without and fear within. 6But g God, who comforts the downcast h comforted us by the coming of Titus, 7and not only by his coming but also by the comfort with which he was comforted by you, as he told us of your longing, your mourning, your zeal for me, so that I rejoiced still more. 8For i even if I made you grieve with my letter, I do not regret it—though j I did regret it, for I see that that letter grieved you, though only for a while.
2 Corinthians 12:20-2120For I fear that perhaps k when I come I may find you not as I wish, and that you may find me not as you wish—that perhaps there may be quarreling, jealousy, anger, hostility, slander, gossip, conceit, and disorder. 21I fear that when I come again my God may humble me before you, and I may have to mourn over many of those l who sinned earlier and have not repented of the impurity, m sexual immorality, and sensuality that they have practiced.
2 Corinthians 13:1010For this reason I write these things while I am away from you, that when I come n I may not have to be o severe in my use of p the authority that the Lord has given me for building up and not for tearing down.
