1 These therefore having the promise, beloved ones, let us cleanse ourselves from all pollution of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in fear of God.
2 Receive you us; no one we injured, no one we corrupted, no one we defrauded.
3 Not for condemnation I speak; before I said for, that in the hearts of us you are in order that to die together and to live together.
4 Much with me boldness towards you, much with me boasting on behalf of you; I have been filled with the consolation, I am overflowing with the joy in all the affliction of us.
5 Indeed for having come of us into Macedonia, not had rest the flesh of us, but in everything being distressed; without fights, within fears.
6 But the one comforting the lowly ones, comforted us the God by the presence of Titus;
7 not only and by the presence of him, but also in the comfort with which he was comforted over you, announcing to us the of you earnest desire, the of you lamentation, the of you zeal on behalf of me; so that me more to have rejoiced.
8 Because if even I grieved you by the letter, not I do repent, if indeed I did repent; I see for that the letter that, if even for an hour, I grieved you.
9 Now I rejoice, not because you were grieved, but because you were grieved in order to reformation; you were grieved for according to God, so that in nothing you might suffer loss from us.
10 The for according to God sorrow reformation for salvation not to be repented of works out; the but of the world sorrow death works out.
11 Lo for same this the thing according to God to have been grieved you, how much it worked in you diligence; but a defence, but indignation, but fear, but earnest desire, but zeal, but punishment; in every thing you proved yourselves pure to be in the matter.
12 Therefore if indeed I wrote to you on account of the one having done wrong; but on account of the one having done wrong; but on account of the to have been manifested the diligence of us that on behalf of you toward you, in presence of the God.
13 On account of this we were comforted on the comfort of you; more abundantly and rather we rejoiced in the joy of Titus, because has been refreshed the spirit of him from all of you;
14 because if anything to him on behalf of you I have boasted, not I was ashamed; but as all things in truth we spoke to you, so also the boasting of us that to Titus, truth became;
15 and the bowels of him more abundantly for you is, remembering the of all of you obedience, as with fear and trembling you received him.
16 I rejoice, that in everything I have confidence in you.
