5 But f if anyone has caused grief, he has not g grieved me, but all of you to some extent - not to be too severe. 6 This punishment which was inflicted h by the majority is sufficient for such a man, 7 i so that, on the contrary, you ought rather to forgive and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one be swallowed up with too much sorrow. 8 Therefore I urge you to reaffirm your love to him. 9 For to this end I also wrote, that I might put you to the test, whether you are j obedient in all things. 10 Now whom you forgive anything, I also forgive. For 1 if indeed I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Christ, 11 lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
