1 I made up my mind, then, that my next visit to you would not be a painful one,
2Cor 1:23 1Cor 4:21 2Cor 12:20-21 2Cor 13:10 1Cor 2:2 1Cor 5:3 2Cor 1:15-17
2 for if I cause you distress I am causing distress to my only possible source of joy.
2Cor 7:8 1Cor 12:26 2Cor 1:14 2Cor 11:29 Rom 12:15
3 Indeed, I wrote as I did precisely to spare myself distress when I visited you, from the very people who should have given me joy, in the conviction that for all of you my joy was yours too.
Gal 5:10 2Cor 8:22 Phlm 1:21 1Cor 4:21-13 2Cor 1:15 2Cor 7:6 2Cor 7:8
4 I wrote to you in agony of mind, not meaning to cause you distress but to show you how very much love I have for you.
2Cor 7:12 2Cor 7:8-9 2Cor 11:2 2Cor 12:15 Jer 13:15-17 Lev 19:17-18 Luke 19:41-44
5 If anyone did cause distress, he caused it not to me, but -- not to exaggerate -- in some degree to all of you.
1Cor 5:12-13 Gal 4:12 1Cor 5:1-5 Gal 5:10 Prov 17:25
6 The punishment already imposed by the majority was quite enough for such a person;
1Cor 5:4-5 1Tim 5:20 2Cor 7:11 2Cor 13:10
7 and now by contrast you should forgive and encourage him all the more, or he may be overwhelmed by the extent of his distress.
Eph 4:32 1Cor 15:54 1Thess 4:13 2Cor 5:4 2Cor 7:10 2Sam 20:19-20 2Thess 3:6
8 That is why I urge you to give your love towards him definite expression.
Jude 1:22-23 Gal 5:13 Gal 6:1-2 Gal 6:10
9 This was in fact my reason for writing, to test your quality and whether you are completely obedient.
2Cor 10:6 Phil 2:22 2Cor 7:12-15 2Cor 8:24 2Thess 3:14 Deut 8:2 Deut 8:16
10 But if you forgive anybody, then I too forgive that person; and whatever I have forgiven, if there is anything I have forgiven, I have done it for your sake in Christ's presence,
1Cor 5:4 John 20:23 2Cor 5:20 Matt 18:18
11 to avoid being outwitted by Satan, whose scheming we know only too well.
1Pet 5:8 Luke 22:31 2Cor 11:3 Eph 6:11-12 2Cor 11:14 1Chr 21:1-2 1Cor 7:5
12 When I came to Troas for the sake of the gospel of Christ and a door was opened for me there in the Lord,
Acts 14:27 Acts 16:8 1Cor 16:9 Col 4:3 Rev 3:7-8 Acts 20:1-6 Acts 20:8
13 I had no relief from anxiety, not finding my brother Titus there, and I said goodbye to them and went on to Macedonia.
2Cor 7:5-6 2Cor 12:18 2Cor 8:6 2Cor 8:16 2Cor 8:23 2Tim 4:10 Gal 2:1
14 But, thanks be to God who always gives us in Christ a part in his triumphal procession, and through us is spreading everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of himself.
Rom 8:37 Eph 5:2 2Cor 2:15-16 2Cor 9:15 Rom 6:17 Song 1:3 2Cor 8:16
15 To God we are the fragrance of Christ, both among those who are being saved and among those who are on the way to destruction;
1Cor 1:18 Eph 5:2 Ezek 20:41 2Cor 4:3-4 2Thess 2:10 Phil 4:18 Exod 29:25
16 for these last, the smell of death leading to death, but for the first, the smell of life leading to life. Who is equal to such a task?
John 9:39 Luke 2:34 1Pet 2:7-8 2Cor 3:5-6 1Cor 15:10 2Cor 12:11 Acts 13:45-47
17 At least we do not adulterate the word of God, as so many do, but it is in all purity, as envoys of God and in God's presence, that we speak in Christ.
