“But if anyone has caused pain,
He has caused it
Not to me,
But in some measure,
Not to exaggerate,
To all of you.”
Εἰ δέ τις λελύπηκεν, οὐκ ἐμὲ λελύπηκεν, ἀλλὰ ἀπὸ μέρους, ἵνα μὴ ἐπιβαρῶ, πάντας ὑμᾶς.
Paul said that if anyone has caused pain (Εἰ δέ τις λελύπηκεν), they have caused it not to Paul (οὐκ ἐμὲ λελύπηκεν), but in some measure (ἀλλὰ ἀπὸ μέρους), not to exaggerate (ἵνα μὴ ἐπιβαρῶ), but to all of them (πάντας ὑμᾶς) in Corinth. Only the Pauline letters have used this word ἐπιβαρῶ, that means to put a burden on or burdensome. Paul indicated that he had not suffered any grief or pain. They, all the Corinthians themselves, have in some measure been burdened in a way with this grief. Paul was pointing out, that this grief was theirs not his. They were the ones suffering because of their actions. Have your actions caused you grief?
