2 Corinthians 7
He proceedeth in exhorting them to purity of life,
2 Corinthians 7:1 Seynge now that we haue soch promyses (dearly beloued) let vs clense oureselues from all fylthynes of the flesh and sprete, and growe vp to full holynes in ye feare of God.
and to bear him like affection as he doth to them.
2 Corinthians 7:2 Vnderstode vs right. We haue hurte no ma, we haue corrupte no man, we haue defrauded no man.
Whereof lest he might seem to doubt, he declareth what comfort he took in his afflictions, by the report which Titus gave of their godly sorrow, which his former epistle had wrought in them,
2 Corinthians 7:3 I speake not this to codemne you, for I haue shewed you before, that ye are in oure hertes, to dye and to lyue wt you. 2 Corinthians 7:4 I am very bolde towarde you, I make moch boost of you, I am fylled with comforte, I am exceadynge ioyous in all oure tribulacion. 2 Corinthians 7:5 For whan we were come into Macedonia, oure flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on euery syde: outwarde was fightinge, inwarde was feare. 2 Corinthians 7:6 Neuertheles God that comforteth the abiecte, comforted vs by the comynge of Titus. 2 Corinthians 7:7 Not onely by his commynge, but also by the cosolacion wherwith he was coforted of you, whan he tolde vs yor desyre, youre wepynge, yor feruet mynde for me, so yt I now reioyse ye more. 2 Corinthians 7:8 For where as I made you sory by the letter, it repenteth me not, though I dyd repete. For I se, that the same epistle made you sory (though it were but for a ceason). 2 Corinthians 7:9 But now I reioyce, not that ye were sory, but that ye were sory to repentaunce. For ye sorowed godly, so that in nothinge ye were hurte by vs. 2 Corinthians 7:10 For godly sorowe causeth repentaunce vnto saluacion, not to be repented of: but worldly sorowe causeth death. 2 Corinthians 7:11 Beholde, where as ye haue had godly sorowe, what diligence hath it wrought in you? Yee a sufficiet answere, displeasure, feare, desyre, a feruet mynde, punyshment. For in all poyntes ye haue shewed youre selues, that ye are cleare in that matter. 2 Corinthians 7:12 Wherfore though I wrote vnto you, yet is it not done for his cause that dyd hurte, nether for his cause that was hurte, but that youre diligence (which ye haue for vs in the sighte of God) mighte be manifest wt you.
and of their lovingkindness and obedience towards Titus, answerable to his former boastings of them.
2 Corinthians 7:13 Therfore are we comforted, because ye are comforted: but exceadingly the more ioyed we, for the ioye of Titus, because his sprete was refresshed of you all. 2 Corinthians 7:14 I am therfore not now ashamed, though I boasted my selfe vnto him of you: but like as all is true that I haue spoke vnto you, euen so is oure boastinge vnto Titus founde true also. 2 Corinthians 7:15 And his inwarde affeccion is more abundaunt towarde you, whan he remembreth the obedience of you all, how ye receaued him with feare and treblynge. 2 Corinthians 7:16 I reioyse, that I maye be bolde ouer you in all thinges.
