2 Corinthians 2:7 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Forgive (χαρίσασθαι)

The idea of freeness (χάρις, see on Luke 1:30) lies in the word forgive, which is forth-give.

Overmuch sorrow (τῇπερισσοτέρᾳ λύπῃ)

Rev. gives the force of the article, his sorrow. Overmuch, excessive, through the refusal of pardon.
