[2 Corinthians 1]
1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy [our] brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia:
[R52 R1139:1 R1386 R1386:1 R1417 R1419:2 R2987:4 ]
1:2 Grace [be] to you and peace from God our Father, and [from] the Lord Jesus Christ.
1:3 Blessed [be] God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
[R52:5* R2664 R3383 R3435:4 R4982:3 R5536 R5747 R5748:3 ]
1:4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
[R2665:1 R2665:2 R2665:4 R2665:5 R3384:4 R3435:3 R3733B R3734:4 R4506:5 R5537:4 R5966 ]
1:5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
[T50 R27:3* R27B R1997B R2000:3 R3435:4 R4472 ]
1:6 And whether we be afflicted, [it is] for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, [it is] for your consolation and salvation.
1:7 And our hope of you [is] stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so [shall ye be] also of the consolation.
[T50 R1321 R1493 R1493:6* R4475:1 ]
1:8 For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life:
[R2206 R2207:5 ]
1:9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:
1:10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver [us];
1:11 Ye also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift [bestowed] upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf.
1:12 For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.
[R1972 R1972:2 R1987 R1988:1 R2038 R2038:2 R2123 R2123:3* ]
1:13 For we write none other things unto you, than what ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end;
1:14 As also ye have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye also [are] ours in the day of the Lord Jesus.
[R1323:5 R4449 R4449:3* ]
1:15 And in this confidence I was minded to come unto you before, that ye might have a second benefit;
1:16 And to pass by you into Macedonia, and to come again out of Macedonia unto you, and of you to be brought on my way toward Judaea.
1:17 When I therefore was thus minded, did I use lightness? or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be yea yea, and nay nay?
[R4517:6 R4517B ]
1:18 But [as] God [is] true, our word toward you was not yea and nay.
1:19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, [even] by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea.
1:20 For all the promises of God in him [are] yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
[R626 R1432 R3331 R4925 R4925:6 ]
1:21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, [is] God;
[A81 E247 F132 M0627 R217B R218:5 R1768 R1768:3* R5498:3 R5498:3 R5498:6 R5498B Q23:T ]
1:22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
[E247 F132 R131 R131:5 R626:4 R5498:6 Q23:1 ]
1:23 Moreover I call God for a record upon my soul, that to spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth.
1:24 Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.
[R1559:4 Z9307 ]
[2 Corinthians 2]
2:1 But I determined this with myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness.
2:2 For if I make you sorry, who is he then that maketh me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me?
2:3 And I wrote this same unto you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice; having confidence in you all, that my joy is [the joy] of you all.
2:4 For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.
[R1886 R1886:5* ]
2:5 But if any have caused grief, he hath not grieved me, but in part: that I may not overcharge you all.
2:6 Sufficient to such a man [is] this punishment, which [was inflicted] of many.
2:7 So that contrariwise ye [ought] rather to forgive [him], and comfort [him], lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow.
2:8 Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm [your] love toward him.
2:9 For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things.
2:10 To whom ye forgive any thing, I [forgive] also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave [it], for your sakes [forgave I it] in the person of Christ;
2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
[F609 F610 R21:3* R898 R899:6 R1217:3 R1217:6 R1217B R1218:1 R1288 R1686 R1687:5 R2526 R2527:6 R2769 R2770:5 R3119 R3120:1 R3165 R3165:6 R3309 R3310:5 R3883 R3884:6 R4743:3 R5147 R5147:3 R5148:1 R5148:2 R5183:3 R5248 R5248:3 R5378 R5379:5 ]
2:12 Furthermore, when I came to Troas to [preach] Christ's gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord,
2:13 I had no rest in my spirit, because I found not Titus my brother: but taking my leave of them, I went from thence into Macedonia.
2:14 Now thanks [be] unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
[R877 R877:1 R877:2 R2057 R2895B R2896:1 ]
2:15 For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:
[R877:1 R1585B R3673B R4922:2 R4922B Q343:6 ]
2:16 To the one [we are] the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who [is] sufficient for these things?
[R877:1 R877:2 R877:4 R877:5 R1279 R1280:1 R2058:2* R2058:4* R2449 R2450:1 R2930:5 R2930 R2930:5 R2930:6 R3537:1 R3673:6 R3673:6 R3674:4 R4163B R4335 R4335:2 R4345 R4346:1 R4346:2 R4377 R4378:5 R5677 R5678:1 ]
2:17 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.
[R877:1 R1583 R1584:2 ]
[2 Corinthians 3]
3:1 Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some [others], epistles of commendation to you, or [letters] of commendation from you?
[R67 R1321 R1706 R1706:5 R1720 R1720:2 R4517:6 R4517B ]
3:2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:
[E294 R565:2* R983 R984:4 R983 R1323:5* R4391:4 R4992 R4993:2 R5571:6 R5967 R5967:6 Z0706 Q235:3 ]
3:3 [Forasmuch as ye are] manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshly tables of the heart.
[R1322:4* R5967:3 R5967 R5967:3 R5968:4 ]
3:4 And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward:
3:5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency [is] of God;
[F252 R2004 R2005:3 R2123 R2123:3* R2123:4* R4331 ]
3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
[A305 F252 F434 R67:3* R365:5 R614 R614 R614:1 R614:4 R614:5 R691 R692:5* R812 R812:4* R974:3 R1322:5* R1403B R1404:4 R3329 R3329:6 R4310:6 R4318 R4319:5 R4319:6 R4331 R4331:3 R4332:2 R4332:4 R4472 R4472 R4474:5 R4475:5 R4492:1 R4496:4 R4537 R4537:6 R4590B R4592:5 R4595 R4595:2 R4595:3 R4595:6 R4596:6 R4597:5 R4681:1 R5292 R5294:1 R4597:5 ]
3:7 But if the ministration of death, written [and] engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which [glory] was to be done away:
[R191 R192:1* R970 R974:2 R970 R1322:6* R1323:6* R1403:3 R2001 R2001:4 R2035 R2084 R2086:4 R3177 R4595:3 ]
3:8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?
[R1323:4* R2035:5 R4492 ]
3:9 For if the ministration of condemnation [be] glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.
[R237 R1403:2 R1403B R3574 R3579:2* R1403:2 ]
3:10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth.
3:11 For if that which is done away [was] glorious, much more that which remaineth [is] glorious.
[R2001 R2001:4 ]
3:12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
3:13 And not as Moses, [which] put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
[B134 D630 R21 R2597 R2759B R3177:5 R4553 R4618B R4619:4 Q729:1 ]
3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which [veil] is done away in Christ.
[R21:2* R153 R2001 R2001:5 R4619:4 R4619:5 ]
3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart.
[R67:2* R812:5* R2086:4 R2605:2 R2798 ]
3:16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away.
[R154:1 R812 R812:5* R2086:4 R2602:2 ]
3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord [is], there [is] liberty.
[B328 B329 E175 E298 R21 R21:2* R1278 R1278:4 R1403B R1404:5 R1548 R1553:4 R1737 R1738:4 R1995 R1995:6 R2359 R2476 R2972 R2981:2 R3073 R3075:2 R4005 R4005:1 R4122 R4123:6 R4154 R4155:1 R4174 R4176:1 R4657:3 R4994:5 R4994B R5025:5 R5222 R5222:2 R5236 R5237:5 R5578 R5579:2 R5579 R5580:4 Q592:2 ]
3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, [even] as by the Spirit of the Lord.

[2 Corinthians 4]
4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
[R525 R2413 R2414:3 R2414:6 R2415:3 R2415:6 ]
4:2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
[R447 R463 R463:5 R525:3 R1321 R1323:4* R1584:3 R1978 R1979:5 R2568 R2569:6 ]
4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of [this] tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

5:2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:
[F673 R344:5 R2194:6 R2231:3 R2753 ]
5:3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

In all [things] ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.
7:12 Wherefore, though I wrote unto you, [I did it] not for his cause that had done the wrong, nor for his cause that suffered wrong, but that our care for you in the sight of God might appear unto you.
7:13 Therefore we were comforted in your comfort: yea, and exceedingly the more joyed we for the joy of Titus, because his spirit was refreshed by you all.

7:14 For if I have boasted any thing to him of you, I am not ashamed; but as we spake all things to you in truth, even so our boasting, which [I made] before Titus, is found a truth.
7:15 And his inward affection is more abundant toward you, whilst he remembereth the obedience of you all, how with fear and trembling ye received him.

8:6 Insomuch that we desired Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also finish in you the same grace also.

8:7 Therefore, as ye abound in every [thing, in] faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and [in] all diligence, and [in] your love to us, [see] that ye abound in this grace also.
[R548:3 R4526:2 R4526:4 R1593:6 ]
8:8 I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the forwardness of others, and to prove the sincerity of your love.

8:9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.

8:10 And herein I give [my] advice: for this is expedient for you, who have begun before, not only to do, but also to be forward a year ago.
8:11 Now therefore perform the doing [of it]; that as [there was] a readiness to will, so [there may be] a performance also out of that which ye have.
[R548:2 R548:6 ]
8:12 For if there be first a willing mind, [it is] accepted according to that a man hath, [and] not according to that he hath not.
[A143 R548:4 R548:6 R1972B R1973:4 R4526:5 R1594:4 ]
8:13 For [I mean] not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:
8:14 But by an equality, [that] now at this time your abundance [may be a supply] for their want, that their abundance also may be [a supply] for your want: that there may be equality:
8:15 As it is written, He that [had gathered] much had nothing over; and he that [had gathered] little had no lack.
8:16 But thanks [be] to God, which put the same earnest care into the heart of Titus for you.
8:17 For indeed he accepted the exhortation; but being more forward, of his own accord he went unto you.
[R1821 R1822:2 ]
8:18 And we have sent with him the brother, whose praise [is] in the gospel throughout all the churches;
[F230 R1521 R1523:5 ]
8:19 And not [that] only, but who was also chosen of the churches to travel with us with this grace, which is administered by us to the glory of the same Lord, and [declaration of] your ready mind:
8:20 Avoiding this, that no man should blame us in this abundance which is administered by us:
8:21 Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.
[R2259 R2259:4 ]
8:22 And we have sent with them our brother, whom we have oftentimes proved diligent in many things, but now much more diligent, upon the great confidence which [I have] in you.
8:23 Whether [any do inquire] of Titus, [he is] my partner and fellowhelper concerning you: or our brethren [be inquired of, they are] the messengers of the churches, [and] the glory of Christ.
8:24 Wherefore show ye to them, and before the churches, the proof of your love, and of our boasting on your behalf.
[2 Corinthians 9]
9:1 For as touching the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you:
[R365:5 R2211 R2211:1 R5926:6 R5926C ]
9:2 For I know the forwardness of your mind, for which I boast of you to them of Macedonia, that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal hath provoked very many.
9:3 Yet have I sent the brethren, lest our boasting of you should be in vain in this behalf; that, as I said, ye may be ready:
9:4 Lest haply if they of Macedonia come with me, and find you unprepared, we (that we say not, ye) should be ashamed in this same confident boasting.
9:5 Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren, that they would go before unto you, and make up before hand your bounty, whereof ye had notice before, that the same might be ready, as [a matter of] bounty, and not as [of] covetousness.
[R365:6 R2211:2 R2212:1 R5926:3 R5926:6 R5927:1 ]
9:6 But this [I say], He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.

9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, [so let him give]; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
[R449 R449:2* R449:3* R450:4 R547:3 R1334:5 R2212:4 R2510 R2511:2 R2540 R2540:3 R2541:1 R2951:1 R3448:5 R5789 R5927:5 ]
9:8 And God [is] able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all [things], may abound to every good work:
[EGPP R449:6* R548:4 R1802 R2540:3 R5927:5 ]
9:9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.
[R548:1 R5926:2 R5926:6 R5927:5 ]
9:10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for [your] food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)
[R455 R455:2 ]
9:11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.
9:12 For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God;
[R450:2,4* R547:6 R548:2 R548:3 R1299:1* R1334:5 R2211:2 R2541:5 R5926:2 ]
9:13 Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ, and for [your] liberal distribution unto them, and unto all [men];
9:14 And by their prayer for you, which long after you for the exceeding grace of God in you.
9:15 Thanks [be] unto God for his unspeakable gift.

[2 Corinthians 10]
10:1 Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence [am] base among you, but being absent am bold toward you:
10:2 But I beseech [you], that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh.
10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
[D543 E250 M0705 R766 R768:4 R1585 R1627 R1744:5 R1744B R2015 R2015:3 R2679 R2681:6 R3089 R3089:5 R3274:4 R3674B R3675:5 R3675:6 R5126 R5592:6 R5759 R5760:6 R5889:3 R5889B Z0906 ]
10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
[D543 F149 R2480:5 R765 R765:3* R1075 R1075:3,4 R1217B R1223:1 R1548 R1552:5 R1802 R1802:5* R1884B R1885:2 R2379 R2381:4 R2413 R2415:6 R2479 R2877 R2878:3 R3102 R3103:4 R3304 R4226 R4227:3 R4238 R4241:4* R4524:1 R5127:4 R5488:2 R5645 R5889:3 R5889:5 ]
10:6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
10:7 Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? If any man trust to himself that he is Christ's, let him of himself think this again, that, as he [is] Christ's, even so [are] we Christ's.
[R4517:6 R4517B ]
10:8 For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the Lord hath given us for edification, and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed:
10:9 That I may not seem as if I would terrify you by letters.
10:10 For [his] letters, say they, [are] weighty and powerful; but [his] bodily presence [is] weak, and [his] speech contemptible.
[B158 B159 R2359 R2972 R2979:1 R3127 R3127:3 ]
10:11 Let such an one think this, that, such as we are in word by letters when we are absent, such [will we be] also in deed when we are present.
[R2513 R2513 R2514:4 ]
10:12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
[R5122B R5123:4 ]
10:13 But we will not boast of things without [our] measure, but according to the measure of the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you.
10:14 For we stretch not ourselves beyond [our measure], as though we reached not unto you: for we are come as far as to you also in [preaching] the gospel of Christ:
[R4517:6 R4517B ]
10:15 Not boasting of things without [our] measure, [that is], of other men's labours; but having hope, when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule abundantly,
10:16 To preach the gospel in the [regions] beyond you, [and] not to boast in another man's line of things made ready to our hand.
10:17 But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
10:18 For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth.
[2 Corinthians 11]
11:1 Would to God ye could bear with me a little in [my] folly: and indeed bear with me.
[R1021B R1235 R1335B ]
11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present [you as] a chaste virgin to Christ.

11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

11:6 But though [I be] rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been thoroughly made manifest among you in all things.
[R364B R365:2 ]
11:7 Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?
[R552:1 R619 R1822:4 R2211 R5926C R5927:1 ]
11:8 I robbed other churches, taking wages [of them], to do you service.

11:9 And when I was present with you, and wanted, I was chargeable to no man: for that which was lacking to me the brethren which came from Macedonia supplied: and in all [things] I have kept myself from being burdensome unto you, and [so] will I keep [myself].

[R1235:6 R5942:1 ]
11:11 Wherefore? because I love you not? God knoweth.
11:12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we.
11:13 For such [are] false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

11:17 That which I speak, I speak [it] not after the Lord, but as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting.
11:18 Seeing that many glory after the flesh, I will glory also.
11:19 For ye suffer fools gladly, seeing ye [yourselves] are wise.

11:29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not?
11:30 If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities.
11:31 The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.

12:5 Of such an one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities.
12:6 For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but [now] I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me [to be], or [that] he heareth of me.
12:7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

12:12 Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.

12:19 Again, think ye that we excuse ourselves unto you? we speak before God in Christ: but [we do] all things, dearly beloved, for your edifying.
12:20 For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and [that] I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest [there be] debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults:
12:21 [And] lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and [that] I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness which they have committed.
[2 Corinthians 13]
13:1 This [is] the third [time] I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.
13:2 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:
13:3 Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you.
13:4 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.
[R2037 R2037:5 ]
13:5 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?
[E232 R759:2* R759C R1400 R1516:2* R1516B R1570 R3103 R3104:2 R3250 R3251:4 R3251:5 R4917 R4917:6 ]
13:6 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.
13:7 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.
13:8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
[R2314 R3052:4 R3665 R3667:1 R3894:3 R4022 R4022:5 R4076:6 R4076 ]
13:9 For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, [even] your perfection.
13:10 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.
13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
[R1128 R1130:6* R2249 R2251:1 R2946B R3434 R3436:5 R3919 ]
13:12 Greet one another with an holy kiss.
[R4238:2 Q618:5 ]
13:13 All the saints salute you.
[R687:3,4 R1139:1 R1657:3 R1696:2 R1728:2 R1889 R1895:4 R3009:1 R3820:6 R4510:3 ]
13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, [be] with you all. Amen.
