2 Corinthians 1:6; 2 Corinthians 6:2; 2 Corinthians 7:10

6 And whether we be afflicted , it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer : or whether we be comforted , it is for your consolation and salvation.
2 (For he saith , I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold , now is the accepted time; behold , now is the day of salvation.)
10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
