Context Readings

A Letter That Caused Sadness

8 For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not regret, though I did regret: for I perceive that the same epistle has made you sorry, though it were but for a time. 9 Now I rejoice, not that you were made sorry, but that you sorrowed to repentance: for you were made sorry after a godly manner, that you might suffer loss by us in nothing. 10 For godly sorrow works repentance to salvation not to be regretted: but the sorrow of the world works death.
