2 Corinthians 2:5-11

GW 5 If someone caused distress, I'm not the one really affected. To some extent--although I don't want to emphasize this too much--it has affected all of you. 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. GW 6 The majority of you have imposed a severe enough punishment on that person. NIV 6 The punishment inflicted on him by the majority is sufficient. GW 7 So now forgive and comfort him. Such distress could overwhelm someone like that if he's not forgiven and comforted. NIV 7 Now instead, you ought to forgive and comfort him, so that he will not be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow. GW 8 That is why I urge you to assure him that you love him. NIV 8 I urge you, therefore, to reaffirm your love for him. GW 9 I had also written to you to test you. I wanted to see if you would be obedient in every way. NIV 9 Another reason I wrote you was to see if you would stand the test and be obedient in everything. GW 10 If you forgive someone, so do I. Indeed, what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, I did in the presence of Christ for your benefit. NIV 10 Anyone you forgive, I also forgive. And what I have forgiven—if there was anything to forgive—I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, GW 11 I don't want Satan to outwit us. After all, we are not ignorant about Satan's scheming. NIV 11 in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.
