2 Corinthians 7:11 For see what eagerness this very thing — this sadness as God intended — has produced in you; what defense of yourselves, what indignation, what alarm, what longing (epipothēsin | ἐπιπόθησιν | acc sg fem), what deep concern, what punishment! In everything you have proved yourselves to be innocent in this matter.
