King James Version2 Corinthians13

2 Corinthians

1 This is the third time I am com­ing to you. In the mouth of two or three wit­ness­es shall ev­ery word be es­tab­lished. 2 I told you be­fore, and fore­tell you, as if I were pre­sent, the sec­ond time; and be­ing ab­sent now I write to them which hereto­fore have sinned, and to all oth­er, that, if I come again, I will not spare: 3 Since ye seek a proof of Christ speak­ing in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you. 4 For though he was cru­ci­fied through weak­ness, yet he liveth by the pow­er of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the pow­er of God to­ward you. 5 Ex­am­ine your­selves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Je­sus Christ is in you, ex­cept ye be repro­bates? 6 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not repro­bates. 7 Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should ap­pear ap­proved, but that ye should do that which is hon­est, though we be as repro­bates. 8 For we can do noth­ing against the truth, but for the truth. 9 For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your per­fec­tion. 10 There­fore I write these things be­ing ab­sent, lest be­ing pre­sent I should use sharp­ness, ac­cord­ing to the pow­er which the Lord hath giv­en me to ed­i­fi­ca­tion, and not to de­struc­tion. 11 Fi­nal­ly, brethren, farewell. Be per­fect, be of good com­fort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you. 12 Greet one an­oth­er with an holy kiss. 13 All the saints salute you. 14 The grace of the Lord Je­sus Christ, and the love of God, and the com­mu­nion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
