2 Corinthians 2:5-11

KJV 5 But if any have caused grief , he hath not grieved me, but in part: that I may not overcharge you all. NIV 5 If anyone has caused grief, he has not so much grieved me as he has grieved all of you, to some extent--not to put it too severely. KJV 6 Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many. NIV 6 The punishment inflicted on him by the majority is sufficient for him. KJV 7 So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow. NIV 7 Now instead, you ought to forgive and comfort him, so that he will not be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow. KJV 8 Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm your love toward him. NIV 8 I urge you, therefore, to reaffirm your love for him. KJV 9 For to this end also did I write , that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things. NIV 9 The reason I wrote you was to see if you would stand the test and be obedient in everything. KJV 10 To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ; NIV 10 If you forgive anyone, I also forgive him. And what I have forgiven--if there was anything to forgive--I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, KJV 11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us : for we are not ignorant of his devices. NIV 11 in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.
