A Letter That Caused Sadness

5 For even after our arrival in Macedonia we could get no relief such as human nature craves. We were greatly harassed; there were conflicts without and fears within. 6 But He who comforts the depressed--even God-- comforted us by the coming of Titus, and not by his coming only, 7 but also by the fact that he had felt comforted on your account, and by the report which he brought of your eager affection, of your grief, and of your jealousy on my behalf, so that I rejoiced more than ever.
