2 Corinthians, Chapter 13

13:1 This is the third time I am coming to you+. At the mouth of two witnesses or three will every word be established.
13:2 I have said beforehand, and I do say beforehand, as when I was present the second time, so now, being absent, to those who have sinned before, and to all the rest, that, if I come again, I will not spare;
13:3 seeing that you+ seek a proof of Christ who speaks in me; who toward you+ is not weak, but is powerful in you+:
13:4 for he was crucified through weakness, yet he lives through the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we will live with him through the power of God toward you+.
13:5 Try yourselves, whether you+ are in the faith; approve yourselves. Or don't you+ know as to yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you+? Unless indeed you+ are disapproved.
13:6 But I hope that you+ will know that we are not disapproved.
13:7 Now we pray to God that you+ do no evil; not that we may appear approved, but that you+ may do that which is honorable, though we may be as disapproved.
13:8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
13:9 For we rejoice, when we are weak, and you+ are strong: this we also pray for, even your+ restoration.
13:10 For this cause I write these things while absent, that I may not when present deal sharply, according to the authority which the Lord gave me for building up, and not for casting down.
13:11 Finally, brothers, farewell. Be restored; be comforted; be of the same mind; live in peace: and the God of love and peace will be with you+.
13:12 Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the saints greet you+.
13:13 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, be with all of you+.
