2 Corinthians 2

Coverdale(i) 1 But I determyned this wt my selfe, that I wolde not come agayne to you in heuynes. 2 For yf I make you sory, who is it that shal make me glad, but the same which is made sory by me? 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. 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. 5 But yf eny man haue caused sorowe, the same hath not made me sory, but partely, lest I shulde greue you all. 6 It is sufficient, that the same man is so rebuked of many, 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. 8 Wherfore I exhorte you, that ye shewe loue vpo him. 9 For therfore dyd I wryte vnto you also, that I mighte knowe the profe of you, whether ye were obediet in all thinges. 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, 11 lest we shulde be preuented of Sathan. For his thoughtes are not vnknowne vnto vs. 12 But wha I came to Troada to preach ye Gospell of Christ (and a dore was opened vnto me in ye LODRE) 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. 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. 15 For we are vnto God the good fauoure of Christ, both amonge the yt are saued, & amonge them yt perishe. 16 To these, ye sauoure of death vnto death: but vnto ye other, the sauoure of life vnto life. And who is mete therto? 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.
