2 Corinthians 7 - King James 3 - The Literal Traslation

1. Therefore having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilements of flesh and of spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Paul’s Joy Over the Church’s Repentance

2. Make room for us. We wronged no one, we corrupted no one, we deceitfully coveted no one.

3. I do not speak to condemnation, for I have said before that you are in our hearts, for dying together and living together.

4. My boldness toward you is great. My boasting on your behalf is much. I have been filled with comfort; I am overflowing with joy on all our affliction.

5. For, indeed, we coming into Macedonia, in our flesh no one had rest, but being troubled in every way, with fightings on the outside and fears on the inside.

6. But the One comforting the lowly comforted us by the coming of Titus.

7. And not only by his coming, but also by the comfort with which he was encouraged over you, relating to us your longing, your mourning, your zeal on my behalf, so as for me to rejoice more.

8. For even if I grieved you in the letter, I do not regret, if indeed I did regret, for I see that letter grieved you for an hour.

9. Now I rejoice, not that you were grieved, but that you were grieved to repentance. For you were grieved according to God, that you might suffer loss in nothing by us.

10. For the grief according to God works repentance to salvation without regret. But the grief of the world works death.

11. For behold this very same thing, you being grieved according to God, how much it fully worked earnestness in you, but also defense, but also indignation, but also fear, but also desire, but also zeal, but also vengeance! In everything you commended yourselves to be clear in the matter.

12. Then even if I wrote to you, it was not for the sake of the one doing wrong, nor for the sake of the one being wronged, but for the sake of revealing our earnestness on your behalf, for you before God.

13. Because of this we have been comforted over your comfort, and we rather rejoice more abundantly over the joy of Titus, because his spirit has been refreshed by all of you.

14. Because if I have boasted anything to him about you, I was not ashamed. But as we spoke all things in truth to you, so also our boasting as to Titus became truth.

15. And his bowels are far greater toward you, remembering the obedience of all of you, as you received him with fear and trembling.

16. Therefore, I rejoice, that in everything I am fully assured in you.
