2 Corinthians 7:9-11

7:9 Now I rejoice, not because you were made sad, 1  but because you were made sad to the point of repentance. For you were made sad as God intended, 2  so that you were not harmed 3  in any way by us. 7:10 For sadness as intended by God produces a repentance that leads to salvation, leaving no regret, but worldly sadness brings about death. 7:11 For see what this very thing, this sadness 4  as God intended, has produced in you: what eagerness, what defense of yourselves, 5  what indignation, 6  what alarm, what longing, what deep concern, 7  what punishment! 8  In everything you have proved yourselves to be innocent in this matter.

1 tn Grk “were grieved” (so also twice later in the verse).

4 tn Grk “this very thing, to be grieved.”

5 tn The words “of yourselves” are not in the Greek text but are implied.
