Bible: 2 Cor 2:3-4

2:3 And I wrote this very thing to you, 1  so that when I came 2  I would not have sadness from those who ought to make me rejoice, since I am confident in you all that my joy would be yours. 2:4 For out of great distress and anguish of heart I wrote to you with many tears, not to make you sad, but to let you know the love that I have especially for you. 3
