2 Corinthians 2:8
Context
Reaffirm Your Love

1But I determined this with myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness. 2For if I make you sorry, who is he then that makes me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me? 3And I wrote this same to you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice; having confidence in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all. 4For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote to you with many tears; not that you should be grieved, but that you might know the love which I have more abundantly to you. 5But if any have caused grief, he has not grieved me, but in part: that I may not overcharge you all. 6Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many. 7So that contrariwise you ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow. 8Why I beseech you that you would confirm your love toward him. 9For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether you be obedient in all things. 10To whom you forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ; 11Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
