Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:1 - Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that could defile the body and the spirit, and thus accomplish holiness out of reverence for God.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:2 - Make room for us in your hearts; we have wronged no one, we have ruined no one, we have exploited no one.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:3 - I do not say this to condemn you, for I told you before that you are in our hearts so that we die together and live together with you.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:4 - I have great confidence in you; I take great pride on your behalf. I am filled with encouragement; I am overflowing with joy in the midst of all our suffering.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:5 - For even when we came into Macedonia, our body had no rest at all, but we were troubled in every way - struggles from the outside, fears from within.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:6 - But God, who encourages the downhearted, encouraged us by the arrival of Titus.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:7 - We were encouraged not only by his arrival, but also by the encouragement you gave him, as he reported to us your longing, your mourning, your deep concern for me, so that I rejoiced more than ever.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:8 - For even if I made you sad by my letter, I do not regret having written it (even though I did regret it, for I see that my letter made you sad, though only for a short time).

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:9 - Now I rejoice, not because you were made sad, but because you were made sad to the point of repentance. For you were made sad as God intended, so that you were not harmed in any way by us.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:10 - For sadness as intended by God produces a repentance that leads to salvation, leaving no regret, but worldly sadness brings about death.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:11 - For see what this very thing, this sadness as God intended, has produced in you: what eagerness, what defense of yourselves, what indignation, what alarm, what longing, what deep concern, what punishment! In everything you have proved yourselves to be innocent in this matter.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:12 - So then, even though I wrote to you, it was not on account of the one who did wrong, or on account of the one who was wronged, but to reveal to you your eagerness on our behalf before God.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:13 - Therefore we have been encouraged. And in addition to our own encouragement, we rejoiced even more at the joy of Titus, because all of you have refreshed his spirit.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:14 - For if I have boasted to him about anything concerning you, I have not been embarrassed by you, but just as everything we said to you was true, so our boasting to Titus about you has proved true as well.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:15 - And his affection for you is much greater when he remembers the obedience of you all, how you welcomed him with fear and trembling.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 7:16 - I rejoice because in everything I am fully confident in you.
