Second Corinthians 7


7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us
 cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit,
 perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
7:2 Receive us; we have wronged no man, we have corrupted no
 man, we have defrauded no man.
7:3 I speak not [this] to condemn [you]: for I have said before,
 that ye are in our hearts to die and live with [you].
7:4 Great [is] my boldness of speech towards you, great [is] my
 glorying concerning you: I am filled with comfort, I am
 exceeding joyful in all our tribulation.
7:5 For, when we had come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest,
 but we were troubled on every side; without [were] fightings,
 within [were] fears.
7:6 Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down,
 comforted us by the coming of Titus;
7:7 And not by his coming only, but by the consolation with
 which he was comforted in you, when he told us your earnest
 desire, your mourning, your fervent mind towards me; so that I
 rejoiced the more.
7:8 For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent,
 though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath
 made you sorry, though [it was] but for a season.
7:9 Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye
 sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly
 manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing.
7:10 For godly sorrow worketh penitence to salvation not to be
 repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
7:11 For behold this very thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly
 sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, [what] clearing
 of yourselves, yea, [what] indignation, yea, [what] fear, yea,
 [what] vehement desire, yea, [what] zeal, yea, [what] avenging!
 In all [things] ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this
 matter.
7:12 Wherefore, though I wrote to you, [I did it] not for his
 cause that had done the wrong, nor for his cause that suffered
 wrong, but that our care for you in the sight of God might
 appear to you.
7:13 Therefore we were comforted in your comfort: and
 exceedingly the more we rejoiced for the joy of Titus, because
 his spirit was refreshed by you all.
7:14 For if I have boasted any thing to him concerning you, I am
 not ashamed; but as we spoke all things to you in truth, even
 so our boasting, which [I made] before Titus, is found a truth.
7:15 And his tender affection is more abundant towards you,
 whilst he remembereth the obedience of you all, how with fear
 and trembling ye received him.
7:16 I rejoice therefore that I have confidence in you in all
 [things].
