2 Corinthians 13:2-12 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
2 I have previously said when present the second time, and though now absent I say in advance to those who have 1sinned in the past and to all the rest as well, that 2if I come again I will not 3spare anyone, 3 since you are 4seeking for proof of the 5Christ who speaks in me, and who is not weak toward you, but 6mighty in you. 4 For indeed He was 7crucified because of weakness, yet He lives 8because of the power of God. For we also are 9weak ain Him, yet 10we will live with Him because of the power of God directed toward you. 5 11Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; 12examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you-unless indeed you b13fail the test? 6 But I trust that you will realize that we ourselves cdo not fail the test. 7 Now we pray to God that you do no wrong; not that we ourselves may appear approved, but that you may do what is right, even though we may dappear unapproved. 8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth. 9 For we rejoice when we ourselves are 14weak but you are strong; this we also pray for, ethat you be 15made complete. 10 For this reason I am writing these things while absent, so that when present 16I need not use 17severity, in accordance with the 18authority which the Lord gave me for building up and not for tearing down. 11 19Finally, brethren, frejoice, g20be made complete, be comforted, 21be like-minded, 22live in peace; and 23the God of love and peace will be with you. 12 24Greet one another with a holy kiss.
