But God, who comforts the depressed, comforted us by the coming of Titus ;
and not only by his coming, but also by the comfort with which he was comforted in you, as he reported to us your longing, your mourning, your zeal for me; so that I rejoiced even more.
For this reason we have been comforted. And besides our comfort, we rejoiced even much more for the joy of Titus, because his spirit has been refreshed by you all.
For if in anything I have boasted to him about you, I was not put to shame ; but as we spoke all things to you in truth, so also our boasting before Titus proved to be the truth.
