New International Version
If anyone has caused grief, he has not so much grieved me as he has grieved all of you to some extent--not to put it too severely.

But if any one has grieved, he has grieved, not me, but in part (that I may not overcharge [you]) all of you.

And if any one hath caused sorrow, he hath not caused sorrow to me, but in part, that I may not burden you all;
