2 Corinthians 2
Having shewed the reason why he came not to them,
2 Corinthians 2:1 But I determyned this wt my selfe, that I wolde not come agayne to you in heuynes. 2 Corinthians 2:2 For yf I make you sory, who is it that shal make me glad, but the same which is made sory by me? 2 Corinthians 2:3 And the same haue I wrytten vnto you, lest wha I come, I shulde take heuynes of them, of whom I oughte to reioyse: for somoch as I haue this confidence in you all, that my ioye is the ioye of you all. 2 Corinthians 2:4 For in greate trouble and anguysh of hert wrote I vnto you with many teares: not yt ye shulde be sory, but that ye mighte perceaue the loue, which I haue most specially vnto you. 2 Corinthians 2:5 But yf eny man haue caused sorowe, the same hath not made me sory, but partely, lest I shulde greue you all.
he requireth them to forgive and to comfort that excommunicated person,
2 Corinthians 2:6 It is sufficient, that the same man is so rebuked of many, 2 Corinthians 2:7 so that from hence forth ye oughte the more to forgeue him and to comforte him, lest he be swalowed vp in ouer moch heuynesse. 2 Corinthians 2:8 Wherfore I exhorte you, that ye shewe loue vpo him. 2 Corinthians 2:9 For therfore dyd I wryte vnto you also, that I mighte knowe the profe of you, whether ye were obediet in all thinges.
even as himself also upon his true repentance had forgiven him:
2 Corinthians 2:10 But loke vnto who ye forgeue eny thinge, I forgeue hi also. For I also, yf I forgeue ought vnto eny ma, that forgeue I for youre sakes in the rowme of Christ, 2 Corinthians 2:11 lest we shulde be preuented of Sathan. For his thoughtes are not vnknowne vnto vs.
declaring withal why he departeth from Troas to Macedonia,
2 Corinthians 2:12 But wha I came to Troada to preach ye Gospell of Christ (and a dore was opened vnto me in ye LODRE) 2 Corinthians 2:13 I had no rest in my sprete, because I founde not Titus my brother: but I toke my leue of them, and wente awaye in to Macedonia.
and the happy success which God gave to his preaching in all places.
2 Corinthians 2:14 Yet thankes be vnto God, which all waye geueth vs the victory in Christ, and openeth ye fauoure of his knowlege by vs in euery place. 2 Corinthians 2:15 For we are vnto God the good fauoure of Christ, both amonge the yt are saued, & amonge them yt perishe. 2 Corinthians 2:16 To these, ye sauoure of death vnto death: but vnto ye other, the sauoure of life vnto life. And who is mete therto? 2 Corinthians 2:17 For we are not as many are, which choppe & chaunge wt the worde of God, but eue out of purenesse, and out of God, in ye sighte of God, so speake we in Christ.
