1This is the third time I am coming to you. Every charge must be established 2by the evidence of two or three witnesses.
3I warned 4those who sinned before and all the others, and I warn them now while absent, as I did when present on my second visit, that 5if I come again I will not spare them--
since you seek proof that Christ 6is speaking in me. He is not weak in dealing with you, but 7is powerful among you.
