1 This will be the third time I have confronted you. Whatever the misdemeanour, the evidence of two or three witnesses is required to sustain a charge.
Deut 19:15 2Cor 12:14 Matt 18:16 Deut 17:6 John 8:17-18 Num 35:30 1Kgs 21:10
2 I gave you notice once, and now, though I am not with you, I give notice again, just as when I was with you for a second time, to those who sinned before, and to all others; and it is to this effect, that when I do come next time, I shall have no mercy.
2Cor 1:23 1Cor 4:19-21 1Cor 5:5 2Cor 10:1-2 2Cor 10:8-11 2Cor 12:20-21 2Cor 13:10
3 Since you are asking for a proof that it is Christ who speaks in me; he is not weak with you but his power is at work among you;
Matt 10:20 2Cor 12:12 Luke 21:15 1Cor 5:4-5 1Cor 9:1-3 2Cor 2:6 2Cor 2:10
4 for, though it was out of weakness that he was crucified, he is alive now with the power of God. We, too, are weak in him, but with regard to you we shall live with him by the power of God.
1Pet 3:18 Rom 6:4 1Cor 2:3 Rom 1:4 1Cor 15:43 1Pet 3:22 2Cor 10:3-4
5 Put yourselves to the test to make sure you are in the faith. Examine yourselves. Do you not recognise yourselves as people in whom Jesus Christ is present? - unless, that is, you fail the test.
1Cor 11:28 Lam 3:40 1Cor 9:27 Heb 12:15 Gal 2:20 Gal 6:4 Rom 8:10
6 But we, as I hope you will come to recognise, do not fail the test.
2Cor 12:20 2Cor 13:10 2Cor 13:3-4
7 It is our prayer to God that you may do nothing wrong -- not so that we have the credit of passing a test, but because you will be doing what is right, even if we do not pass the test.
1Pet 2:12 1Thess 5:23 1Tim 2:2 2Tim 2:15 2Tim 4:18 Jas 1:12 Phil 1:9-11
8 We have no power to resist the truth; only to further the truth;
1Cor 5:4-5 1Kgs 22:28 1Tim 1:20 2Cor 10:8 2Cor 13:10 2Kgs 1:9-13 2Kgs 2:23-25
9 and we are delighted to be weak if only you are strong. What we ask in our prayers is that you should be made perfect.
2Cor 13:11 1Thess 3:10 1Cor 4:10 1Pet 5:10 2Cor 12:5-10 2Cor 7:1 2Cor 11:30
10 That is why I am writing this while still far away, so that when I am with you I shall not have to be harsh, with the authority that the Lord has given me, an authority that is for building up and not for breaking down.
2Cor 10:8 2Cor 2:3 Titus 1:13 2Cor 13:8 1Cor 4:21 2Cor 10:2 2Cor 12:20-21
11 To end then, brothers, we wish you joy; try to grow perfect; encourage one another; have a common mind and live in peace, and the God of love and peace will be with you.
1Cor 1:10 Rom 15:33 Rom 12:16 1Pet 3:8 Mark 9:50 Rom 12:18 1John 4:8-16
12 Greet one another with the holy kiss. All God's holy people send you their greetings.
Rom 16:16 1Cor 16:20 1Pet 5:14 1Thess 5:26
13 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
