Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:1 -

Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Godly Sorrow Produces Repentance

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:2 -

Make room for us in your hearts. We wronged no one, we corrupted no one, we took advantage of no one.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:3 - I do not speak to condemn you, for I have said before that you are in our hearts to die together and to live together.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:4 - Great is my boldness toward you; great is my boasting on your behalf. I have been filled with comfort; I am overflowing with joy in all our affliction.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:5 -

For even when we came into Macedonia our flesh had no rest, but we were afflicted on every side—conflicts without, fears within.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:6 - But God, who comforts the humbled, comforted us by the coming of Titus;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:7 - 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.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:8 - For though I caused 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
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:9 - I now rejoice, not that you were made sorrowful, but that you were made sorrowful to repentance. For you were made to have [fn]godly sorrow, so that you might not suffer loss in anything [fn]through us.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:10 - For [fn]godly sorrow produces a repentance [fn]without regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of the world brings about death.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:11 - For behold what earnestness this very thing—this [fn]godly sorrow—has brought about in you: what vindication of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what longing, what zeal, what avenging of wrong! In everything you demonstrated yourselves to be innocent in the matter.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:12 - So although I wrote to you, it was not for the sake of the offender nor for the sake of the one offended, but that your earnestness on our behalf might be manifested to you in the sight of God.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:13 - For this reason we have been comforted.

And besides our comfort, we rejoiced even much more for the joy of Titus, because his spirit has been refreshed by you all.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:14 - For if in anything I have boasted 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 Titus proved to be the truth.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:15 - And his [fn]affection abounds all the more toward you, as he remembers the obedience of you all, how you received him with fear and trembling.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:16 - I rejoice that in everything I am encouraged about you.
