“I speake not this to condemne you: for I haue said before, that you are in our hearts to die and liue with you.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
7:3 I speak not to condemn you - Not as if I accused you of laying this to my charge. I am so far from thinking so unkindly of you, that ye are in our hearts, to live and die with you - That is, I could rejoice to spend all my days with you.
2Co 7:3 I speak not [this] to condemn [you]. I do not accuse you of making these charges against me. Yet he knew well that they had been made by Judaizers and others at Corinth. I have said before. See 2Co 6:11,12. What follows is an expression of undying affection.
