"If your brother sins against you, a go and rebuke him in private. b If he listens to you, you have won your brother.
But if he won't listen, take one or two more with you, so that by the testimony c of two or three witnesses every fact may be established. d17
If he pays no attention to them, tell the church. e But if he doesn't pay attention even to the church, let him be like an unbeliever f and a tax collector to you.
I assure you: Whatever you bind on earth is already bound g in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth is already loosed h in heaven.
Again, I assure you: If two of you on earth agree about any matter that you i pray for, it will be done for you j by My Father in heaven.
For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there among them."
