“For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things.”
King James Version (KJV)
2:10 To whom ye forgive - He makes no question of their complying with his direction. Anything - So mildly does he speak even of that heinous sin, after it was repented of. In the person of Christ - By the authority wherewith he has invested me.
2:11 Lest Satan - To whom he had been delivered, and who sought to destroy not only his flesh, but his soul also. Get an advantage over us - For the loss of one soul is a common loss.
2Co 2:9 For to this end also did I write. One object of his writing was to test their obedience. Whether ye be obedient in all things. He commanded positively in 1Co 5:11,13.
