A Letter That Caused Sadness

10 For godly sorrow produces a change of mind to salvation not to be repented of; but the sorrow of the world produces death. 11 For behold, this same thing, that you grieved in a godly manner, how great diligence it produced in you, what a defense, what indignation, what fear, what desire, what zeal, what a punishment! In every thing you proved yourselves to be clear in this matter. 12 If therefore I wrote to you, it was not on account of him that did the wrong, nor on account of him that suffered wrong, but that our diligence in your behalf might be manifest before God.
