1Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.1Ταύτας οὖν ἔχοντες τὰς ἐπαγγελίας ἀγαπητοί καθαρίσωμεν ἑαυτοὺς ἀπὸ παντὸς μολυσμοῦ σαρκὸς καὶ πνεύματος ἐπιτελοῦντες ἁγιωσύνην ἐν φόβῳ Θεοῦ
2Make room for us in your hearts; we wronged no one, we corrupted no one, we took advantage of no one.2Χωρήσατε ἡμᾶς οὐδένα ἠδικήσαμεν οὐδένα ἐφθείραμεν οὐδένα ἐπλεονεκτήσαμεν
3I do not speak to condemn you, for I have said before that you are in our hearts to die together and to live together.3πρὸς κατάκρισιν οὐ λέγω προείρηκα γὰρ ὅτι ἐν ταῖς καρδίαις ἡμῶν ἐστε εἰς τὸ συναποθανεῖν καὶ συζῆν*
4Great is my confidence in you; great is my boasting on your behalf. I am filled with comfort; I am overflowing with joy in all our affliction.4πολλή μοι παρρησία πρὸς ὑμᾶς πολλή μοι καύχησις ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν πεπλήρωμαι τῇ παρακλήσει ὑπερπερισσεύομαι τῇ χαρᾷ ἐπὶ πάσῃ τῇ θλίψει ἡμῶν
5For even when we came into Macedonia our flesh had no rest, but we were afflicted on every side: conflicts without, fears within.5Καὶ γὰρ ἐλθόντων ἡμῶν εἰς Μακεδονίαν οὐδεμίαν ἔσχηκεν ἄνεσιν σὰρξ ἡμῶν ἀλλ’ ἐν παντὶ θλιβόμενοι ἔξωθεν μάχαι ἔσωθεν φόβοι
6But God, who comforts the depressed, comforted us by the coming of Titus;6ἀλλ’ παρακαλῶν τοὺς ταπεινοὺς παρεκάλεσεν ἡμᾶς Θεὸς ἐν τῇ παρουσίᾳ Τίτου
7and not only by his coming, but also by the comfort with which he was comforted in you, as he reported to us your longing, your mourning, your zeal for me; so that I rejoiced even more.7οὐ μόνον δὲ ἐν τῇ παρουσίᾳ αὐτοῦ ἀλλὰ καὶ ἐν τῇ παρακλήσει παρεκλήθη ἐφ’ ὑμῖν ἀναγγέλλων ἡμῖν τὴν ὑμῶν ἐπιπόθησιν τὸν ὑμῶν ὀδυρμόν τὸν ὑμῶν ζῆλον ὑπὲρ ἐμοῦ ὥστε με μᾶλλον χαρῆναι
8For though I caused you sorrow by my letter, I do not regret it; though I did regret it-- for I see that that letter caused you sorrow, though only for a while--8Ὅτι εἰ καὶ ἐλύπησα ὑμᾶς ἐν τῇ ἐπιστολῇ οὐ μεταμέλομαι εἰ καὶ μετεμελόμην βλέπω [γὰρ] ὅτι ἐπιστολὴ ἐκείνη εἰ καὶ πρὸς ὥραν ἐλύπησεν ὑμᾶς
9I now rejoice, not that you were made sorrowful, but that you were made sorrowful to the point of repentance; for you were made sorrowful according to the will of God, so that you might not suffer loss in anything through us.9νῦν χαίρω οὐχ ὅτι ἐλυπήθητε ἀλλ’ ὅτι ἐλυπήθητε εἰς μετάνοιαν ἐλυπήθητε γὰρ κατὰ Θεόν ἵνα ἐν μηδενὶ ζημιωθῆτε ἐξ ἡμῶν
10For the sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of the world produces death.10 γὰρ κατὰ Θεὸν λύπη μετάνοιαν εἰς σωτηρίαν ἀμεταμέλητον ἐργάζεται δὲ τοῦ κόσμου λύπη θάνατον κατεργάζεται
11For behold what earnestness this very thing, this godly sorrow, has produced in you: what vindication of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what longing, what zeal, what avenging of wrong! In everything you demonstrated yourselves to be innocent in the matter.11Ἰδοὺ γὰρ αὐτὸ τοῦτο τὸ κατὰ Θεὸν λυπηθῆναι πόσην κατειργάσατο ὑμῖν σπουδήν ἀλλὰ ἀπολογίαν ἀλλὰ ἀγανάκτησιν ἀλλὰ φόβον ἀλλὰ ἐπιπόθησιν ἀλλὰ ζῆλον ἀλλὰ ἐκδίκησιν ἐν παντὶ συνεστήσατε ἑαυτοὺς ἁγνοὺς εἶναι τῷ πράγματι
12So although I wrote to you, it was not for the sake of the offender nor for the sake of the one offended, but that your earnestness on our behalf might be made known to you in the sight of God.12ἄρα εἰ καὶ ἔγραψα ὑμῖν οὐχ ἕνεκεν τοῦ ἀδικήσαντος (ἀλλ') οὐδὲ ἕνεκεν τοῦ ἀδικηθέντος ἀλλ’ ἕνεκεν τοῦ φανερωθῆναι τὴν σπουδὴν ὑμῶν τὴν ὑπὲρ ἡμῶν πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐνώπιον τοῦ Θεοῦ
13For this reason we have been comforted. And besides our comfort, we rejoiced even much more for the joy of Titus, because his spirit has been refreshed by you all.13διὰ τοῦτο παρακεκλήμεθα Ἐπὶ δὲ τῇ παρακλήσει ἡμῶν περισσοτέρως μᾶλλον ἐχάρημεν ἐπὶ τῇ χαρᾷ Τίτου ὅτι ἀναπέπαυται τὸ πνεῦμα αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ πάντων ὑμῶν
14For if in anything I have boasted to him about you, I was not put to shame; but as we spoke all things to you in truth, so also our boasting before Titus proved to be the truth.14ὅτι εἴ τι αὐτῷ ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν κεκαύχημαι οὐ κατῃσχύνθην ἀλλ’ ὡς πάντα ἐν ἀληθείᾳ ἐλαλήσαμεν ὑμῖν οὕτως καὶ καύχησις ἡμῶν ‹ἡ› ἐπὶ Τίτου ἀλήθεια ἐγενήθη
15His affection abounds all the more toward you, as he remembers the obedience of you all, how you received him with fear and trembling.15καὶ τὰ σπλάγχνα αὐτοῦ περισσοτέρως εἰς ὑμᾶς ἐστιν ἀναμιμνῃσκομένου τὴν πάντων ὑμῶν ὑπακοήν ὡς μετὰ φόβου καὶ τρόμου ἐδέξασθε αὐτόν
16I rejoice that in everything I have confidence in you.16χαίρω ὅτι ἐν παντὶ θαρρῶ ἐν ὑμῖν
