2 Corinthians 13

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

2 Corinthians 13:1 Nowe come I the third time vnto you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall euery worde be stablisshed. 2 Corinthians 13:2 I tolde you before, and tell you before, as though I had ben present with you the seconde tyme, so write I nowe beyng absent, to them which in time past haue sinned, and to all other, that yf I come agayne, I wyll not spare, 2 Corinthians 13:3 Seyng yt ye seeke experience of Christe which speaketh in me, which to you ward is not weake, but is mighty in you. 2 Corinthians 13:4 For though he was crucified of weakenesse, yet liueth he of the power of God. And we no doubt, are weake in hym: but we shall lyue with hym, by ye might of God towarde you.

And advising them to a trial of their faith,

2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine your selues, whether ye are in the fayth: Proue your owne selues. Knowe ye not your owne selues, howe that Iesus Christe is in you? except ye be reprobates. 2 Corinthians 13:6 I trust ye shal knowe that we are not reprobates.

and to a reformation of their sins before his coming,

2 Corinthians 13:7 Truely I pray to God that ye do none euyll, not that we shoulde seeme approued: but yt ye shoulde do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates. 2 Corinthians 13:8 For we can do nothyng agaynst the trueth: but for the trueth. 2 Corinthians 13:9 For we are glad when we are weake, and ye are strong. Truely this also we wishe, euen your perfection. 2 Corinthians 13:10 Therfore write I these thynges beyng absent, lest when I am present, I should vse sharpenesse, accordyng to the power which the Lorde hath geuen me to edification, and not to destruction.

he concludeth his epistle with a general exhortation and a prayer.

2 Corinthians 13:11 Finally brethren, fare well, be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mynde, lyue in peace, and the God of loue and peace shalbe with you. 2 Corinthians 13:12 Greete one another in an holy kisse. 2 Corinthians 13:13 All the saintes salute you. 2 Corinthians 13:14 The grace of our Lorde Iesus Christ, and the loue of God, and the comunion of the holy ghost, be with you all. Amen. {The ende of the seconde Epistle to the Corinthians. Sent from Philippos, a citie in Macedonia, by Titus and Lucas.}
