15AndI will very gladlyspendand be spentforyou ;athough the more abundantly I loveyou, the less I be loved .
16But be it so , Ididnotburdenyou:nevertheless,beingcrafty, I caughtyou with guile.17
Did I make a gain of youbyany of themwhom I sentuntoyou?18
I desiredTitus,and with him I sent a brother.DidTitus make a gain of you? walked wenot in the samespirit? walked we not in the samesteps?19Again, think yethat we excuse ourselves unto you? we speakbeforeGodinChrist:but we do all things, dearly beloved,foryouredifying.20For I fear , lest , when I come , I shallnotfindyou such as I would , and that I shall be found unto you such as ye wouldnot:lestthere be debates,envyings,wraths,strifes,backbitings,whisperings,swellings,tumults:21
And lest, when I comeagain,myGod will humblemeamongyou,and that I shall bewailmanywhich have sinned already , andhavenotrepentedof the uncleannessandfornicationandlasciviousnesswhich they have committed .
