ThisG5124 is the thirdG5154 time I am comingG2064 to you. In the mouthG4750 of twoG1417 orG2532 threeG5140 witnessesG3144 shall everyG3956 wordG4487 be established.G2476
I toldG4280 you before,G4280 and foretellG4302 you, as ifG1437 I were present,G3918 the secondG1208 time; and being absentG548 nowG3568 I writeG1125 to them which heretoforeG4258 have sinned,G4258 and to allG3956 other,G3062 that, if I comeG2064 again,G1519 G3588 G3825 I will not spare:G5339
SinceG1893 you seekG2212 a proofG1382 of ChristG5547 speakingG2980 in me, whichG3739 to you-wardG1519 G5209 is not weak,G770 but is mightyG1414 in you.
For thoughG1487 he was crucifiedG4717 throughG1537 weakness,G769 yetG235 he livesG2198 by the powerG1411 of God.G2316 For we alsoG2532 are weakG770 in him, but we shall liveG2198 with him by the powerG1411 of GodG2316 towardG1519 you.
ExamineG3985 yourselves,G1438 whetherG1487 you be in the faith;G4102 proveG1381 yourG1438 own selves.G1438 KnowG1921 you not yourG1438 own selves,G1438 how that JesusG2424 ChristG5547 is in you, exceptG1509 you be reprobates?G96
But I trustG1679 that you shall knowG1097 that we are not reprobates.G96
NowG1161 I prayG2172 to GodG2316 that you doG4160 noG3361 G3367 evil;G2556 not that we should appearG5316 approved,G1384 but that you should doG4160 that which is honest,G2570 though we be as reprobates.G96
For we canG1410 do nothingG3756 G5100 againstG2596 the truth,G225 but for the truth.G225
For we are glad,G5463 whenG3752 we are weak,G770 and you are strong:G1415 and thisG5124 alsoG2532 we wish,G2172 even yourG5216 perfection.G2676
ThereforeG1223 G5124 I writeG1125 theseG5023 things being absent,G548 lestG2443 G3361 being presentG3918 I should useG5530 sharpness,G664 accordingG2596 to the powerG1849 whichG3739 the LordG2962 has givenG1325 me to edification,G3619 and not to destruction.G2506
Finally,G3063 brothers,G80 farewell.G5463 Be perfect,G2675 be of good comfort,G3870 be of oneG3588 G846 mind,G5426 liveG1514 in peace;G1518 and the GodG2316 of loveG26 and peaceG1515 shall be with you.
GreetG782 oneG240 anotherG240 with an holyG40 kiss.G5370
AllG3956 the saintsG40 saluteG782 you.
The graceG5485 of the LordG2962 JesusG2424 Christ,G5547 and the loveG26 of God,G2316 and the communionG2842 of the HolyG40 Ghost,G4151 be with you all.G3956 Amen.G281 The second epistle to the Corinthians was written from Philippi, a city of Macedonia, by Titus and Lucas.
