7:1 Therefore, most dear-worthy, we having these promises, cleanse we us from all filth of flesh and spirit, perfectly making hallowing in the dread of God. Seeing that we have such promises dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, and grow up to full holiness in the fear of God. Seeing then we have these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh & spirit, and grow up unto full holiness in the fear of God. Having therefore these promises (dearly beloved) let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
7:2 Take ye us; we have hurt no man, we have corrupted no man, we have beguiled no man. Understand us: we have hurt no man: we have corrupted no man: we have defrauded no man. Receive us: we have done wrong to no man: we have consumed no man: we have defrauded no man. Receive us, we have wronged no man, we have corrupted no man, we have defrauded no man.
7:3 I say not to your condemning; for I said before, that ye be in our hearts, to die together, and live together. I speak not this to condemn you: for I have shewed you before that ye are in our hearts to die and live with you. I speak it not to your condemnation: for I have said before, that ye are in our hearts, to die and live together. I speak not this to condemn you: for I have said before, that you are in our hearts to die and live with you.
7:4 Much trust is to me with you, much glorying is to me for you. I am filled with comfort, I abound in joy in all our tribulation. I am very bold over you, and rejoice greatly in you. I am filled with comfort, my joy is exceeding in all our tribulations. I use great boldness of speech toward you: I rejoice greatly in you: I am filled with comfort, and am exceeding joyous in all our tribulation. Great is my boldness of speech toward you, great is my glorying of you, I am filled with comfort, I am exceeding joyful in all our tribulation.
7:5 For when we were come to Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we suffered all tribulation; forsooth withoutforth, fightings, withinforth, dreads. For when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side: outward was fighting, inward was fear. For when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side, fightings without, & terrors within. For when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears.
7:6 But God that comforteth meek men, comforted us in the coming of Titus. Nevertheless he that comforteth the abject, comforted us at the coming of Titus. But God, that comforteth the abject, comforted us at the coming of Titus: Nevertheless, God that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus.
7:7 And not only in the coming of him, but also in the comfort by which he was comforted in you, telling to us your desire, your weeping, your love for me, so that I joyed more. And not with his coming only: but also with the consolation wherewith he was comforted of you. For he told us your desire, your mourning, your fervent mind to me-ward So that I now rejoice the more. And not by his coming only, but also by the consolation wherewith he was comforted of you, when he told us your great desire, your mourning, your fervent mind to me-ward, so that I rejoiced much more. And not by his coming only, but by the consolation wherewith he was comforted in you, when he told us your earnest desire, your mourning, your fervent mind toward me, so that I rejoiced the more.
7:8 For though I made you sorry in an epistle, it rueth me not; though it rued, I seeing that though that epistle made you sorry at an hour, Wherefore though I made you sorry with a letter I repent not: though I did repent. For I perceive that that same Epistle made you sorry though it were but for a season. For though I made you sorry with a letter, I repent not, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle made you sorry, though it were but for a season. For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: For I perceive that the same Epistle hath made you sorry, though it were but for a season.
7:9 now I have joy; not for ye were made sorry, but for ye were made sorrowful to penance. For why ye be made sorry after God, that in nothing ye suffer impairment of us. but I now rejoice, not that ye were sorry, but that ye so sorrowed, that ye repented. For ye sorrowed godly: so that in nothing were ye hurt by us. I now rejoice, not that ye were sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye sorrowed godly, so that in nothing ye were hurt by us. Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing.
7:10 For the sorrow that is after God, worketh penance into steadfast health; but sorrow of the world worketh death. for godly sorrow causeth repentance unto health, not to be repented of: when worldly sorrow causeth death. For godly sorrow causeth repentance unto salvation, not to be repented of: but the worldly sorrow causeth death. For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of, but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
7:11 For lo! this same thing, that ye be sorrowful after God, how much busyness it worketh in you; but defending, but indignation, but dread, but desire, but love, but vengeance. In all things ye have given yourselves to be undefouled in the cause. Behold what diligence this godly sorrow that ye took hath wrought in you: yea it caused you to clear yourselves. It caused indignation, it caused fear, it caused desire, it caused a fervent mind, it caused punishment. For in all things ye have shewed yourselves that ye were clear in that business. For behold, this thing that ye have been godly sorry, what great care it hath wrought in you: yea, what clearing of yourselves: yea what indignation: yea, what fear: yea, how great desire: yea, what a zeal: yea, what punishment: in all things ye have shewed yourselves, that ye are pure in this matter. For behold this selfsame thing that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea what fear, yea what vehement desire, yea what zeal, yea what revenge; In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.
7:12 Therefore though I wrote to you, I wrote not for him that did the injury, neither for him that suffered, but to shew our busyness, which we have for you before God. Wherefore though I have written unto you, I did it not for his cause that did hurt, neither for his cause that was hurt: but that our good mind which we have toward you in the sight of god, might appear unto you. Wherefore, though I wrote unto you, I did not it for his cause that had done the wrong, neither for his cause that had the injury, but that our care toward you in the sight of God might appear unto you. Wherefore though I wrote unto you, I did it not for his cause that had done the wrong, nor for his cause that suffered wrong, but that our care for you in the sight of God might appear unto you.
7:13 Therefore we be comforted, but in your comfort more plenteously we joyed more on the joy of Titus, for his spirit is fulfilled of all you. Therefore we are comforted, because ye are comforted: yea and exceedingly the more joyed we, for the joy that Titus had: because his spirit was refreshed of you all. Therefore we were comforted, because ye were comforted: but rather we rejoiced much more for the joy of Titus, because his spirit was refreshed by you all. Therefore we were comforted in your comfort, yea and exceedingly the more joyed we for the joy of Titus, because his spirit was refreshed by you all.
7:14 And if I gloried any thing with him of you, I am not confounded; but as we have spoken to you all things in truth, so also our glory that was at Titus, is made truth. I am therefore not now ashamed, though I boasted myself to him of you. For as all things which I preached unto you are true, even so is our boasting, that I boasted myself to Titus withal, found true. For if that I have boasted any thing to him of you, I have not been ashamed: but as I have spoken unto you all things in truth, even so our boasting unto Titus was true. For if I have boasted any thing to him of you, I am not ashamed; but as we spake all things to you in truth, even so our boasting which I made before Titus, is found a truth.
7:15 And the entrails of him be more plenteous in you, which hath in mind the obedience of you all, how with dread and trembling ye received him. And now is his inward affection more abundant toward you, when he remembereth the obedience of every one of you: how with fear and trembling ye received him. And his inward affection is more abundant toward you, when he remembereth the obedience of you all, and how with fear & trembling ye received him. And his inward affection is more abundant toward you, whilst he remembereth the obedience of you all, how with fear and trembling you received him.
7:16 I joy, that in all things I trust in you. I rejoice that I may be bold over you in all things. I rejoice therefore that I may put my confidence in you in all things. I rejoice therefore that I have confidence in you in all things.
