For we write none other things unto you, than what ye read or acknowledge ; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end;
And I wrote this same unto you, lest, when I came , I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice ; having confidence in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all.
For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved , but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.
For to this end also did I write , that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things.
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written , I believed , and therefore have I spoken ; we also believe , and therefore speak ;
Wherefore, though I wrote unto 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 unto you.
As it is written , He that had gathered much had nothing over ; and he that had gathered little had no lack .
For as touching the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you:
(As it is written , He hath dispersed abroad ; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.
I told you before , and foretell you , as if I were present , the second time; and being absent now I write to them which heretofore have sinned , and to all other, that, if I come again , I will not spare :
Therefore I write these things being absent , lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me to edification, and not to destruction.
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
