2 Corinthians 2:5-11 - Forgive And Comfort The Offender
5 Now, if anyone hath caused grief, not unto me hath he caused grief, but - that I may not bear too heavily - unto you all. 6 Sufficient, unto such a one, the punishment itself which was inflicted by the many; 7 So that, on the contrary, ye should forgive and encourage, lest, by any means, by his excessive grief, such a one should be swallowed up. 8 Wherefore, I beseech you, assure him, of love; 9 For, to this end, I also wrote, - that I might know the proof of you, whether, in all things, ye are obedient. 10 Now, to whom ye forgive anything, I, also; for, I also, what I have forgiven, if, anything, I have forgiven, for your sake, in the person of Christ, have I forgiven it . 11 Lest we should be overreached by Satan, for, of his thoughts, we are not ignorant.
