5 But if anyone has been a cause of sorrow, he has been so, not to me only, but in some measure to all of you (I say this that I may not be over-hard on you).
6 Let it be enough for such a man to have undergone the punishment which the church put on him;
7 So that now, on the other hand, it is right for him to have forgiveness and comfort from you, for fear that his sorrow may be over-great.
8 For which cause my desire is that you will make your love to him clear by your acts.
9 And for the same reason I sent you a letter so that I might be certain of your desire to do my orders in all things.
