2 Corinthians 7:5-16 KJV

6 Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus;
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 were but for a season.
9 Now I rejoice , not that ye were made sorry , but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry aftera a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing.
