1: This third time do I come unto you; on the mouth of two witnesses or three shall every saying be established; 2: I have said before, and I say [it] before, as being present, the second time, and being absent, now, do I write to those having sinned before, and to all the rest, that if I come again, I will not spare, 3: since a proof ye seek of the Christ speaking in me, who to you is not infirm, but is powerful in you, 4: for even if he was crucified from infirmity, yet he doth live from the power of God; for we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him from the power of God toward you. 5: Your ownselves try ye, if ye are in the faith; your ownselves prove ye; do ye not know your ownselves, that Jesus Christ is in you, if ye be not in some respect disapproved of? 6: and I hope that ye shall know that we -- we are not disapproved of; 7: and I pray before God that ye do no evil, not that we may appear approved, but that ye may do that which is right, and we may be as disapproved; 8: for we are not able to do anything against the truth, but for the truth; 9: for we rejoice when we may be infirm, and ye may be powerful; and this also we pray for -- your perfection! 10: because of this, these things -- being absent -- I write, that being present, I may not treat [any] sharply, according to the authority that the Lord did give me for building up, and not for casting down. 11: Henceforth, brethren, rejoice; be made perfect, be comforted, be of the same mind, be at peace, and the God of the love and peace shall be with you; 12: salute one another in an holy kiss; 13: salute you do all the saints; 14: the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, [is] with you all! Amen.
