2 Corinthians 2:5-11 New Life Version (NLV)
Forgiving a Christian
5 If someone among you has brought sorrow, he has not made me as sad as he has all of you. I say this so I may not make it hard for you. 6 Most of you have punished him. That is enough for such a person. 7 Now you should forgive him and comfort him. If you do not, he will be so sad that he will want to give up. 8 I ask you to show him you do love him. 9 This is why I wrote to you. I wanted to test you to see if you were willing to obey in all things. 10 If you forgive a man, I forgive him also. If I have forgiven anything, I have done it because of you. Christ sees me as I forgive. 11 We forgive so that Satan will not win. We know how he works!
