2 Corinthians 13


Final Exhortations

1This third time I come to you. By the mouth of two witnesses and three [3is established 1every 2saying]. 2I have described beforehand and say beforehand, as being at hand the second time, and being absent now I write to the ones who previously sinned, and to all the rest, that if I should come, for the again I shall not spare, 3since [2a proof 1you seek] of the [3in 4me 2speaking 1Christ], which among you is not weak, but is mighty in you. 4For even if he was crucified from out of weakness, yet he lives through power of God. For even we are weak in him, but we shall live with him by God's power among you. 5Test yourselves, if you are in the belief! Try yourselves! Or do you not recognize yourselves that Jesus Christ [2in 3you 1is]? -- except you be rejected. 6But I hope that you know that we are not rejected. 7But I make a vow to God [2to not do 1for you 4evil 3anything]; not that we [2approved 1should appear], but that you [2good 1should do], and we [2as 3rejected 1might be]. 8For not are we able to do anything against the truth, but for the truth. 9For we rejoice whenever we should be weak, but you should be mighty. But this also we make a vow -- your readying. 10On account of these things [2being absent 1I write], that being at hand [2not 4severely 1I should 3treat you], according to the authority which [3gave 4to me 1the 2Lord] for edification, and not for demolition. 11The rest, brethren, rejoice! Be readied! Be comforted! The same thing think! Make peace! and the God of the love and peace will be with you. 12Greet one another with a holy kiss! 13[4greet 5you 2the 3holy ones 1All]. 14The favor of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the holy spirit be with you all. Amen.
