7:1 So since we have these promises, dear ones, let us wash away everything that pollutes body and spirit, bringing us to holiness out of respect for God.

7:7 Not only that, but he also brought with him the consolation you gave him; he told us of your aching, extreme anguish, and passion for my sake. And that made me very happy.

7:8 So even if the letter I wrote upset you, I don’t regret it, because it only upset you for a time.
