2 Corinthians 7:6-16 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
6 But 1God, who comforts the adepressed, 2comforted us by the coming of 3Titus; 7 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. 8 For though I 4caused you sorrow by my letter, I do not regret it; though I did regret it-for I see that that letter caused you sorrow, though only for a while - 9 I now rejoice, not that you were made sorrowful, but that you were made sorrowful to the point of repentance; for you were made sorrowful according to the will of God, so that you might not suffer loss in anything bthrough us. 10 For the sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a 5repentance cwithout regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of the world produces death. 11 For behold what earnestness this very thing, this dgodly sorrow, has produced in you: what vindication of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what 6longing, what zeal, what 7avenging of wrong! In everything you 8demonstrated yourselves to be innocent in the matter. 12 So although 9I wrote to you, it was not for the sake of 10the offender nor for the sake of the one offended, but that your earnestness on our behalf might be made known to you in the sight of God. 13 For this reason we have been 11comforted. And besides our comfort, we rejoiced even much more for the joy of 12 Titus, because his 13 spirit has been refreshed by you all. 14 For if in anything I have 14boasted 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 15Titus proved to be the truth. 15 His eaffection abounds all the more toward you, as he remembers the 16obedience of you all, how you received him with 17fear and trembling. 16 I rejoice that in everything 18I have confidence in you.
