2 Corinthians 13

1 This will be the third-time I am coming to you*. (Upon the mouth of two or three witnesses every declaration will be established.) {Deu 19:15} 2 I have spoken to you* beforehand and I do say again like beforehand, being present* the second-time and so being absent now, I am writing to warn those who have sinned before and to all the rest, that, if I come to it again, I will not be sparing them, 3 since you* are seeking proof of the Christ speaking in me; who is not weak toward you*, but is mighty in you*. 4 For* even if he was crucified out of weakness, but yet he is living out of the power of God. For* we are also weak in him, but yet we will be living together with him out of the power of God toward you*. 5 Test yourselves, if you* are in the faith! Test yourselves. Or do you* not fully know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you*, (lest you* are unapproved)? 6 But I hope that you* will know that we are not unapproved. 7 Now I pray to God that you* do nothing evil; not in order that we may appear approved, but in order that you* may do the good thing s, but even if we may be as unapproved. 8 For* we are not able to do anything against the truth, but are able on behalf of the truth. 9 For* we rejoice, whenever we are weak, but you* may be mighty. But we are also praying for this: your* completion {Or: mending} . 10 I am writing these things because of this, while being absent, in order that I may not need to treat you* sharply when being present*, according to the authority which the Lord gave me *for building up and not *for demolition. 11 Furthermore brethren: rejoice; be* completed; be* comforted; be* mindful of the same thing; be* at peace; and the God of love* and peace will be with you*. 12 Greet one another with* a holy kiss. 13 All the holy-ones are greeting you*. 14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love* of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, is with all of you*.
Amen. {NOTES: Please read the Preface and other non-bible sections. * is our universal footnoting for words contained in the 'Definitions' section. These words are NOT the same Greek word as the non-asterisk form; i.e. *FOR is different from FOR* is different from FOR.}
