5 For, when we were come into Macedonia, our body had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears. 6 Nevertheless God, who comforts those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus; 7 And not by his coming only, but by the consolation with which he was comforted in you, when he told us your earnest desire, your mourning, your fervent mind toward me; so that I rejoiced the more.
