2 Corinthians 13
Anderson's New Testament Par ▾ 

Examine Yourselves

1The third time am I coming to you. By the mouth of two or three witnesses, every matter shall be established. 2I have foretold, and now the second time, as if I was present, though being absent, I foretell to those who have sinned, and to all others, that, if I come again, I will not spare; 3since you seek a proof of Christ's speaking in me, who toward you is not weak, but who is mighty in you: 4for though he was crucified in weakness, yet he lives 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.

5Make trial of yourselves, whether you are in the faith; put yourselves to the proof. Do you not know your own selves, that Christ Jesus is in you? unless you be without proof. 6But I hope that you will know that we are not without proof. 7Yet I pray to God that you may do no evil; not that we may appear as having proof, but that you may do what is good, though we be as without proof. 8For we can do nothing against the truth, but we can do something for the truth. 9For we rejoice when we are weak, and you are strong. And we pray also for this?your perfection. 10For this reason, I write these things, while absent, that I may not, when present, use severity, according to the authority which the Lord has given me for edification, and not for destruction.

Benediction and Farewell

11Finally, brethren, farewell; be perfect, be comforted, be of the same mind, be at peace; and the God of love and of peace will be with you. 12Salute one another with a holy kiss. 13All the saints salute you.

14The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.
