But I determined this for myself, that I would not come to you again in sorrow.
For if I make you grieve, then who will make me glad?
Forgiveness for a member of the assembly was punished.
But if any has caused sorrow, he has caused sorrow, not to me, but in part to you all.
Now you should rather forgive him and comfort him.
Thanks for the actions done in Troas and Macedonia.
When I came to Troas for the Gospel of Christ, and when a door was opened the Lord, I had no relief for my spirit, because I didn’t find Titus, my brother, but taking my leave of them, I went to Macedonia.
Now thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph!
