NASB — 2 Corinthians 13 — KJV

Examine Yourselves

1 aThis is the third time I am coming to you. bEVERY IFACT IIIS TO BE CONFIRMED BY THE IIITESTIMONY OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES. 2 I have previously said when present the second time, and though now absent I say in advance to those who have asinned in the past and to all the rest [as well], that bif I come again I will not cspare [anyone], 3 since you are aseeking for proof of the bChrist who speaks in me, and who is not weak toward you, but cmighty in you. 4 For indeed He was acrucified because of weakness, yet He lives bbecause of the power of God. For we also are cweak Iin Him, yet dwe will live with Him because of the power of God [directed] toward you.

5aTest yourselves [to see] if you are in the faith; bexamine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you—unless indeed you Icfail the test? 6 But I trust that you will realize that we ourselves Ido not fail the test. 7 Now we pray to God that you do no wrong; not that we ourselves may appear approved, but that you may do what is right, even though we may Iappear unapproved. 8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but [only] for the truth. 9 For we rejoice when we ourselves are aweak but you are strong; this we also pray for, Ithat you be bmade complete. 10 For this reason I am writing these things while absent, so that when present aI [need] not use bseverity, in accordance with the cauthority which the Lord gave me for building up and not for tearing down.

He threateneth severity, and the power of his apostleship against obstinate sinners.

1 ¶ This [is] the third [time] I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established. 2 I told you before, and foretell you, as if I were present, the second time; and being absent now I write to them which heretofore have sinned, and to all other, that, if I come again, I will not spare: 3 Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you. 4 For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.

And advising them to a trial of their faith,

5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? 6 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.

and to a reformation of their sins before his coming,

7 Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates. 8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. 9 For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, [even] your perfection. 10 Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me to edification, and not to destruction.

11 Finally, brethren, farewell.
