Corinthians Chapter 13
1 This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of twoor three witnesses shall every word be established.
2 I told you beforeand foretell youas if I were presentthesecond timeand being absent now I write to them whichheretofore have sinnedand to all otherthatif I comeagainI will not spare
3 Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in mewhich toyou ward is not weakbut is mighty in you.
4 For though he was crucified through weaknessyet he liveth bythe power of God. For we also are weak in himbut we shalllive with him by the power of God toward you.
5 Examine yourselveswhether ye be in the faithprove your ownselves. Know ye not your own selveshow that Jesus Christ isin youexcept ye be reprobates
6 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.
7 Now I pray to God that ye do no evilnot that we shouldappear approvedbut that ye should do that which is honest though we be as reprobates.
8 For we can do nothing against the truthbut for the truth.
9 For we are gladwhen we are weakand ye are strongand thisalso we wisheven your perfection.
10 Therefore I write these things being absentlest beingpresent I should use sharpnessaccording to the power whichthe Lord hath given me to edificationand not to destruction.
11 Finallybrethrenfarewell. Be perfectbe of good comfortbe of one mindlive in peaceand the God of love and peaceshall be with you.
12 Greet one another with an holy kiss.
13 All the saints salute you.
14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christand the love of Godandthe communion of the Holy Ghostbe with you all. Amen.
