2 Corinthians 7 (WEBP)

[1] Having therefore these promises, beloved, let’s cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
[2] Open your hearts to us. We wronged no one. We corrupted no one. We took advantage of no one.
[3] I say this not to condemn you, for I have said before that you are in our hearts to die together and live together.
[4] Great is my boldness of speech toward you. Great is my boasting on your behalf. I am filled with comfort. I overflow with joy in all our affliction.
[5] For even when we had come into Macedonia, our flesh had no relief, but we were afflicted on every side. Fightings were outside. Fear was inside.
[6] Nevertheless, he who comforts the lowly, God, comforted us by the coming of Titus,
[7] and not by his coming only, but also by the comfort with which he was comforted in you while he told us of your longing, your mourning, and your zeal for me, so that I rejoiced still more.
[8] For though I grieved you with my letter, I do not regret it, though I did regret it. For I see that my letter made you grieve, though just for a while.
[9] I now rejoice, not that you were grieved, but that you were grieved to repentance. For you were grieved in a godly way, that you might suffer loss by us in nothing.
[10] For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, which brings no regret. But the sorrow of the world produces death.
[11] For behold, this same thing, that you were grieved in a godly way, what earnest care it worked in you. Yes, what defense, indignation, fear, longing, zeal, and vindication! In everything you demonstrated yourselves to be pure in the matter.
[12] So although I wrote to you, I wrote not for his cause that did the wrong, nor for his cause that suffered the wrong, but that your earnest care for us might be revealed in you in the sight of God.
[13] Therefore we have been comforted. In our comfort we rejoiced the more exceedingly for the joy of Titus, because his spirit has been refreshed by you all.
[14] For if in anything I have boasted to him on your behalf, I was not disappointed. But as we spoke all things to you in truth, so our glorying also which I made before Titus was found to be truth.
[15] His affection is more abundantly toward you, while he remembers all of your obedience, how with fear and trembling you received him.
[16] I rejoice that in everything I am confident concerning you.

2 Corinthians 7 (KJVS)

[1] Having G2192 (PresActPtc) therefore G3767 these G5025 promises G1860, dearly beloved G27, let us cleanse G2511 (AorActSubj) ourselves G1438 from G575 all G3956 filthiness G3436 of the flesh G4561 and G2532 spirit G4151, perfecting G2005 (PresActPtc) holiness G42 in G1722 the fear G5401 of God G2316.
[2] Receive G5562 (AorActImpr) us G2248; we have wronged G91 (AorActInd) no man G3762, we have corrupted G5351 (AorActInd) no man G3762, we have defrauded G4122 (AorActInd) no man G3762.
[3] I speak G3004 (PresActInd) not G3756 [this] to G4314 condemn G2633 [you]: for G1063 I have said before G4280 (PerfActInd), that G3754 ye are G2075 (PresInd) in G1722 our G2257 hearts G2588 to G1519 die G4880 (Aor2ActInf) and G2532 live with G4800 (PresActInf) [you].
[4] Great G4183 [is] my G3427 boldness of speech G3954 toward G4314 you G5209, great G4183 [is] my G3427 glorying G2746 of G5228 you G5216: I am filled G4137 (PerfPasInd) with comfort G3874, I am exceeding G5248 (PresMidInd) joyful G5479 in G1909 all G3956 our G2257 tribulation G2347.
[5] For G1063 G2532, when we G2257 were come G2064 (Aor2ActPtc) into G1519 Macedonia G3109, our G2257 flesh G4561 had G2192 (PerfActInd) no G3762 rest G425, but G235 we were troubled G2346 (PresPasPtc) on G1722 every side G3956; without G1855 [were] fightings G3163, within G2081 [were] fears G5401.
[6] Nevertheless G235 God G2316, that comforteth G3870 (PresActPtc) those that are cast down G5011, comforted G3870 (AorActInd) us G2248 by G1722 the coming G3952 of Titus G5103;
[7] And G1161 not G3756 by G1722 his G846 coming G3952 only G3440, but G235 G2532 by G1722 the consolation G3874 wherewith G3739 he was comforted G3870 (AorPasInd) in G1909 you G5213, when he told G312 (PresActPtc) us G2254 your G5216 earnest desire G1972, your G5216 mourning G3602, your G5216 fervent mind G2205 toward G5228 me G1700; so G5620 that I G3165 rejoiced G5463 (Aor2PasDepInf) the more G3123.
[8] For G3754 though G1499 I made G3076 you G5209 sorry G3076 (AorActInd) with G1722 a letter G1992, I do G3338 not G3756 repent G3338 (PresMidPasDepInd), though G1499 I did repent G3338 (ImpfMidPasDepInd): for G1063 I perceive G991 (PresActInd) that G3754 the same G1565 epistle G1992 hath made G3076 you G5209 sorry G3076 (AorActInd), though [it were] but G1499 for G4314 a season G5610.
[9] Now G3568 I rejoice G5463 (PresActInd), not G3756 that G3754 ye were made sorry G3076 (AorPasInd), but G235 that G3754 ye sorrowed G3076 (AorPasInd) to G1519 repentance G3341: for G1063 ye were made sorry G3076 (AorPasInd) after G2596 a godly manner G2316, that G2443 ye might receive damage G2210 (AorPasSubj) by G1537 us G2257 in G1722 nothing G3367.
[10] For G1063 godly G2316 G2596 sorrow G3077 worketh G2716 (PresMidPasDepInd) repentance G3341 to G1519 salvation G4991 not to be repented of G278: but G1161 the sorrow G3077 of the world G2889 worketh G2716 (PresMidPasDepInd) death G2288.
[11] For G1063 behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr) this G5124 selfsame thing G846, that G5209 ye sorrowed G3076 (AorPasInf) after G2596 a godly sort G2316, what G4214 carefulness G4710 it wrought G2716 (AorMidDepInd) in you G5213, yea G235, [what] clearing of yourselves G627, yea G235, [what] indignation G24, yea G235, [what] fear G5401, yea G235, [what] vehement desire G1972, yea G235, [what] zeal G2205, yea G235, [what] revenge G1557! In G1722 all G3956 [things] ye have approved G4921 (AorActInd) yourselves G1438 to be G1511 (PresInf) clear G53 in G1722 this matter G4229.
[12] Wherefore G686, though G1499 I wrote G1125 (AorActInd) unto you G5213, [I did it] not G3756 for his cause G1752 that had done the wrong G91 (AorActPtc), nor G3761 for his cause G1752 that suffered wrong G91 (AorPasPtc), but G235 that G1752 our G2257 care G4710 for G5228 you G5216 in the sight G1799 of God G2316 might appear G5319 (AorPasInf) unto G4314 you G5209.
[13] Therefore G1223 G5124 we were comforted G3870 (PerfPasInd) in G1909 your G5216 comfort G3874: yea, and G1161 exceedingly G4056 the more G3123 joyed we G5463 (Aor2PasDepInd) for G1909 the joy G5479 of Titus G5103, because G3754 his G846 spirit G4151 was refreshed G373 (PerfPasInd) by G575 you G5216 all G3956.
[14] For G3754 if I have boasted G2744 (PerfMidPasDepInd) any thing G1536 to him G846 of G5228 you G5216, I am G2617 not G3756 ashamed G2617 (AorPasInd); but G235 as G5613 we spake G2980 (AorActInd) all things G3956 to you G5213 in G1722 truth G225, even G2532 so G3779 our G2257 boasting G2746, which G3588 [I made] before G1909 Titus G5103, is found G1096 (AorPasDepInd) a truth G225.
[15] And G2532 his G846 inward affection G4698 is G2076 (PresInd) more abundant G4056 toward G1519 you G5209, whilst he remembereth G363 (PresMidPtc) the obedience G5218 of you G5216 all G3956, how G5613 with G3326 fear G5401 and G2532 trembling G5156 ye received G1209 (AorMidDepInd) him G846.
[16] I rejoice G5463 (PresActInd) therefore that G3754 I have confidence G2292 (PresActInd) in G1722 you G5213 in G1722 all G3956 [things].

Young’s Literal Translation

2 Corinthians 7 (YLT)

[1] Having, then, these promises, beloved, may we cleanse ourselves from every pollution of flesh and spirit, perfecting sanctification in the fear of God;
[2] receive us; no one did we wrong; no one did we waste; no one did we defraud;
[3] not to condemn you do I say it, for I have said before that in our hearts ye are to die with and to live with;
[4] great is my freedom of speech unto you, great my glory on your behalf; I have been filled with the comfort, I overabound with the joy on all our tribulation,
[5] for also we, having come to Macedonia, no relaxation hath our flesh had, but on every side we are in tribulation, without are fightings, within-fears;
[6] but He who is comforting the cast-down-God-He did comfort us in the presence of Titus;
[7] and not only in his presence, but also in the comfort with which he was comforted over you, declaring to us your longing desire, your lamentation, your zeal for me, so that the more I did rejoice,
[8] because even if I made you sorry in the letter, I do not repent-if even I did repent-for I perceive that the letter, even if for an hour, did make you sorry.
[9] I now do rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye were made sorry to reformation, for ye were made sorry toward God, that in nothing ye might receive damage from us;
[10] for the sorrow toward God reformation to salvation not to be repented of doth work, and the sorrow of the world doth work death,
[11] for, lo, this same thing-your being made sorry toward God-how much diligence it doth work in you! but defence, but displeasure, but fear, but longing desire, but zeal, but revenge; in every thing ye did approve yourselves to be pure in the matter.
[12] If, then, I also wrote to you-not for his cause who did wrong, nor for his cause who did suffer wrong, but for our diligence in your behalf being manifested unto you before God-
[13] because of this we have been comforted in your comfort, and more abundantly the more did we rejoice in the joy of Titus, that his spirit hath been refreshed from you all;
[14] because if anything to him in your behalf I have boasted, I was not put to shame; but as all things in truth we did speak to you, so also our boasting before Titus became truth,
[15] and his tender affection is more abundantly toward you, remembering the obedience of you all, how with fear and trembling ye did receive him;
[16] I rejoice, therefore, that in everything I have courage in you.
