Notes on Second Corinthians

From the Original 1599 Geneva Bible Notes


2Co 1:1

1:1 Paul, {1} 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:

2Co 1:3

1:3 {2} {a} Blessed [be] God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of {b} mercies, and the God of all comfort;

2Co 1:4

1:4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, {3} that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

2Co 1:5

1:5 For as the {c} sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.

2Co 1:6

1:6 {4} And whether we be afflicted, [it is] for your consolation and salvation, which is {d} effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, [it is] for your consolation and salvation.

2Co 1:8

1:8 {5} 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 {e} despaired even of life:

2Co 1:9

1:9 But we had the sentence of death in {f} ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:

2Co 1:10

1:10 Who delivered us from so {g} great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver [us];

2Co 1:11

1:11 {6} Ye also helping together by prayer for us, {7} that for the gift [bestowed] upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf.

2Co 1:12

1:12 {8} For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly {h} sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the {i} grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.

2Co 1:13

1:13 For we write {k} none other things unto you, than what ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the {l} end;

2Co 1:14

1:14 As also ye have acknowledged us in part, that we are your {m} rejoicing, even as ye also [are] ours in the {n} day of the Lord Jesus.

2Co 1:15

1:15 And in this confidence I was minded to come unto you before, that ye might have a {o} second benefit;

2Co 1:17

1:17 {9} When I therefore was thus minded, did I use lightness? or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the {p} flesh, that with me there should be {q} yea yea, and nay nay?

2Co 1:18

1:18 {10} But [as] God [is] {r} true, our word toward you was not yea and nay.

2Co 1:19

1:19 {11} For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, [even] by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, {s} was not yea and nay, but in {t} him was yea.

2Co 1:20

1:20 {12} For all the promises of God in him [are] yea, and in {u} him Amen, unto the glory of God by {x} us.

2Co 1:21

1:21 {13} Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, [is] God;

2Co 1:22

1:22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the {y} earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

2Co 1:23

1:23 {14} Moreover I call God for a record upon my {z} soul, that to spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth.

2Co 1:24

1:24 {15} Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your {a} joy: for by faith ye stand.

2Co 2:1

2:1 But I determined this with myself, that I would not come again to you in {a} heaviness.

2Co 2:3

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 {b} confidence in you all, that my joy is [the joy] of you all.

2Co 2:5

2:5 {1} But if any have caused grief, he hath not {c} grieved me, but {d} in part: that I may not {e} overcharge you all.

2Co 2:7

2:7 So that contrariwise ye [ought] rather to {f} forgive [him], and comfort [him], lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow.

2Co 2:8

2:8 Wherefore I beseech you that ye would {g} confirm [your] love toward him.

2Co 2:10

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 {h} person of Christ;

2Co 2:11

2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his {i} devices.

2Co 2:12

2:12 {2} Furthermore, when I came to Troas to [preach] Christ's gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord,

2Co 2:14

2:14 Now thanks [be] unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the {k} savour of his knowledge by us in every place.

2Co 2:15

2:15 {3} For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:

2Co 2:16

2:16 To the one [we are] the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. {4} And who [is] sufficient for these things?

2Co 2:17

2:17 For we are not as many, which {l} corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

2Co 3:3

3:3 [Forasmuch as ye are] {a} manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ {b} ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the {c} living God; {1} not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

2Co 3:4

3:4 And such {d} trust have we through Christ to God-ward:

2Co 3:5

3:5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our {e} sufficiency [is] of God;

2Co 3:6

3:6 {2} Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the {f} letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

2Co 3:7

3:7 But if the ministration of death, written {g} [and] engraven in stones, was {h} 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:

2Co 3:8

3:8 How shall not the {i} ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?

2Co 3:9

3:9 For if the ministration of condemnation [be] glory, much more doth the ministration of {k} righteousness exceed in glory.

2Co 3:11

3:11 For if that which is {l} done away [was] glorious, much more that which remaineth [is] glorious.

2Co 3:12

3:12 {3} Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:

2Co 3:13

3:13 {4} And not as Moses, [which] put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the {m} end of that which is abolished:

2Co 3:17

3:17 Now the {n} Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord [is], there [is] liberty.

2Co 3:18

3:18 {5} 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.

2Co 4:1

4:1 Therefore {1} seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we {a} faint not;

2Co 4:2

4:2 But have renounced the {b} hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God {c} deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.

2Co 4:3

4:3 {2} But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

2Co 4:4

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

2Co 4:5

4:5 {3} For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for {f} Jesus' sake.

2Co 4:6

4:6 For God, {g} who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the {h} light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

2Co 4:7

4:7 {4} But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, {5} that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

2Co 4:10

4:10 {6} Always bearing about in the body the {i} dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

2Co 4:11

4:11 For we which {k} live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our {l} mortal flesh.

2Co 4:12

4:12 {7} So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

2Co 4:13

4:13 {8} We having the same {m} spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;

2Co 4:15

4:15 {9} For all things [are] for your sakes, {n} that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.

2Co 4:16

4:16 For which cause we faint not; {10} but though our outward man perish, yet the inward [man] is {o} renewed day by day.

2Co 4:17

4:17 For our {p} light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding [and] eternal weight of {q} glory;

2Co 5:1

5:1 For {1} 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.

2Co 5:2

5:2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be {a} clothed upon with our house which is from {b} heaven:

2Co 5:3

5:3 {2} If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

2Co 5:5

5:5 Now he that hath {c} wrought us for the selfsame thing [is] God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.

2Co 5:6

5:6 {3} Therefore [we are] always {d} confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:

2Co 5:7

5:7 (For we walk by {e} faith, not by sight:)

2Co 5:8

5:8 We are {f} confident, [I say], and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

2Co 5:9

5:9 Wherefore we {g} labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.

2Co 5:10

5:10 {4} For we must all {h} appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things [done] in [his] body, according to that he hath done, whether [it be] good or bad.

2Co 5:11

5:11 {5} Knowing therefore the {i} terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.

2Co 5:12

5:12 {6} For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to [answer] them which glory in {k} appearance, and not in heart.

2Co 5:13

5:13 {7} For whether we be beside ourselves, [it is] to God: or whether we be sober, [it is] for your cause.

2Co 5:14

5:14 {8} For the love of Christ {l} constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if {m} one died for all, then were all dead:

2Co 5:15

5:15 And [that] he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth {n} live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.

2Co 5:16

5:16 {9} Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: {10} yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we [him] no more.

2Co 5:17

5:17 {11} Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a {o} new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

2Co 5:18

5:18 {12} And all things [are] of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

2Co 5:19

5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath {p} committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

2Co 5:21

5:21 For he hath made him [to be] {q} sin for us, who {r} knew no sin; that we might be made the {s} righteousness of God in him.

2Co 6:1

6:1 We {1} then, [as] workers together [with him], beseech [you] also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.

2Co 6:2

6:2 {2} (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time {a} accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now [is] the accepted time; behold, now [is] the day of salvation.)

2Co 6:3

6:3 {3} Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:

2Co 6:4

6:4 But in all [things] {b} approving ourselves as the ministers of God, {4} in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,

2Co 6:5

6:5 In stripes, in imprisonments, in {c} tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;

2Co 6:6

6:6 {5} By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,

2Co 6:7

6:7 By the {d} word of truth, by the {e} power of God, by the {f} armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

2Co 6:11

6:11 {6} O [ye] Corinthians, our mouth is {g} open unto you, our heart is enlarged.

2Co 6:12

6:12 Ye are not {h} straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own {i} bowels.

2Co 6:14

6:14 {7} Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

2Co 6:15

6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what {k} part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

2Co 6:16

6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the {l} living God; as God hath said, I will {m} dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

2Co 7:1

7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the {a} flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

2Co 7:2

7:2 {1} {b} Receive us; we have wronged no man, we have corrupted no man, we have defrauded no man.

2Co 7:3

7:3 I speak not [this] to {c} condemn [you]: for I have said before, that ye are in our hearts to die and live with [you].

2Co 7:6

7:6 Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are {d} cast down, comforted us by the {e} coming of Titus;

2Co 7:8

7:8 {2} For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though [it were] but for a season.

2Co 7:9

7:9 Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to {f} repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing.

2Co 7:10

7:10 For {g} godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

2Co 7:12

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 {h} sight of God might appear unto you.

2Co 8:1

8:1 Moreover, {1} brethren, we do you to wit of the {a} grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia;

2Co 8:2

8:2 How that in a {b} great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality.

2Co 8:3

8:3 For to [their] power, I bear record, yea, and beyond [their] power [they were] {c} willing of themselves;

2Co 8:4

8:4 Praying us with much intreaty that we would receive the {d} gift, and [take upon us] the fellowship of the ministering to the saints.

2Co 8:5

8:5 {2} And [this they did], not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God.

2Co 8:8

8:8 {3} I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the {e} forwardness of others, and to prove the {f} sincerity of your love.

2Co 8:9

8:9 {4} 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.

2Co 8:10

8:10 {5} And herein I give [my] advice: for this is expedient for you, who have begun before, not only to do, but also to {g} be forward a year ago.

2Co 8:12

8:12 {6} 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.

2Co 8:13

8:13 {7} For [I mean] not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:

2Co 8:14

8:14 But by an {h} 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:

2Co 8:16

8:16 {8} But thanks [be] to God, which put the same earnest care into the heart of Titus for you.

2Co 8:18

8:18 And we have sent with him the brother, whose praise [is] {i} in the gospel throughout all the churches;

2Co 8:19

8:19 And not [that] only, but who was also chosen of the churches to travel with us with this {k} grace, which is administered by us to the glory of the same Lord, and [declaration of] your ready mind:

2Co 8:20

8:20 Avoiding this, that no man should blame us in this {l} abundance which is administered by us:

2Co 8:23

8:23 Whether [any do enquire] of Titus, [he is] my partner and fellowhelper concerning you: or our {m} brethren [be enquired of, they are] the messengers of the churches, [and] the {n} glory of Christ.

2Co 8:24

8:24 Wherefore shew ye to them, and before the {o} churches, the proof of your love, and of our boasting on your behalf.

2Co 9:1

9:1 For {1} as touching the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to write to you:

2Co 9:4

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 {a} confident boasting.

2Co 9:5

9:5 Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren, that they would go before unto you, and make up beforehand your bounty, whereof ye had notice before, that the same might be ready, as [a matter of] bounty, and not as [of] {b} covetousness.

2Co 9:6

9:6 {2} But this [I say], He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.

2Co 9:7

9:7 Every man according as he {c} purposeth in his heart, [so let him give]; not {d} grudgingly, or of {e} necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

2Co 9:8

9:8 And God [is] able to make {f} all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all [things], may abound to {g} every good work:

2Co 9:9

9:9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for {h} ever.

2Co 9:10

9:10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for [your] food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the {i} fruits of your righteousness;)

2Co 9:12

9:12 {3} For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God;

2Co 9:13

9:13 Whiles by the {k} experiment of this ministration they glorify God for your {l} professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ, and for [your] liberal distribution unto them, and unto all [men];

2Co 9:15

9:15 {m} Thanks [be] unto God for his unspeakable gift.

2Co 10:1

10:1 Now {1} I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and {a} gentleness of Christ, who in presence [am] base among you, but being absent am bold toward you:

2Co 10:2

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 {b} according to the flesh.

2Co 10:3

10:3 {2} For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

2Co 10:4

10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare [are] not {c} carnal, but mighty through {d} God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

2Co 10:5

10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, {3} and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

2Co 10:7

10:7 {4} Do ye look on things after the {e} outward appearance? If any man trust to himself that he is Christ's, let him of {f} himself think this again, that, as he [is] Christ's, even so [are] we Christ's.

2Co 10:10

10:10 For [his] letters, say {g} they, [are] weighty and powerful; but [his] bodily presence [is] weak, and [his] speech contemptible.

2Co 10:12

10:12 {5} For we {h} dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by {i} themselves, and {k} comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

2Co 10:13

10:13 But we will not boast of things without [our] {l} measure, but according to the measure of the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you.

2Co 10:15

10:15 Not boasting of things {m} 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,

2Co 10:16

10:16 To preach the gospel in the [regions] beyond you, [and] not to boast in {n} another man's line of things made ready to our hand.

2Co 10:17

10:17 {6} But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

2Co 11:1

11:1 Would {1} to God ye could bear with me a little in [my] folly: and indeed bear with me.

2Co 11:2

11:2 For I am jealous over you with {a} godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may {b} present [you as] a chaste virgin to Christ.

2Co 11:3

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

2Co 11:4

11:4 {2} For if he that cometh preacheth {e} another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or [if] ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with [him].

2Co 11:6

11:6 {3} But though [I be] {f} rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.

2Co 11:7

11:7 {4} Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?

2Co 11:9

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, {5} and [so] will I keep [myself].

2Co 11:10

11:10 As the {g} truth of Christ is in me, no man shall {h} stop me of this boasting in the regions of Achaia.

2Co 11:12

11:12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they {i} glory, they may be found even as we.

2Co 11:13

11:13 {6} For such [are] false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

2Co 11:14

11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of {k} light.

2Co 11:16

11:16 {7} I say again, Let no man think me a fool; if otherwise, yet as a fool receive me, that I may boast myself a little.

2Co 11:20

11:20 {8} For ye suffer, if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour [you], if a man take [of you], if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face.

2Co 11:21

11:21 I speak as concerning {l} reproach, as though we had been {m} weak. Howbeit whereinsoever any is bold, (I speak foolishly,) I am bold also.

2Co 11:23

11:23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I [am] {n} more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in {o} deaths oft.

2Co 11:24

11:24 Of the Jews {p} five times received I forty [stripes] save one.

2Co 11:25

11:25 {q} Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;

2Co 11:27

11:27 In weariness and {r} painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.

2Co 11:28

11:28 {9} Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.

2Co 11:30

11:30 {10} If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities.

2Co 12:1

12:1 It {1} is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.

2Co 12:2

12:2 I knew a man {a} in Christ above fourteen years ago,
(whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the {b} third heaven.

2Co 12:4

12:4 How that he was caught up into {c} paradise, and heard {d} unspeakable words, which it is not {e} lawful for a man to utter.

2Co 12:5

12:5 {2} Of such an one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities.

2Co 12:7

12:7 {3} And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me {f} a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of {g} Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

2Co 12:8

12:8 For this thing I besought the Lord {h} thrice, that it might depart from me.

2Co 12:9

12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. {4} Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may {i} rest upon me.

2Co 12:10

12:10 Therefore I take {k} pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

2Co 12:11

12:11 I am become a fool in glorying; ye have compelled me: {5} for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest apostles, though I be nothing.

2Co 12:12

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

2Co 12:13

12:13 For what is it wherein ye were inferior to other churches, except [it be] that I myself was not {m} burdensome to you? forgive me this wrong.

2Co 12:16

12:16 {6} But be it so, I did not burden you: nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with guile.

2Co 12:19

12:19 {7} Again, think ye that we excuse ourselves unto you? we speak before God in {n} Christ: but [we do] all things, dearly beloved, for your edifying.

2Co 12:20

12:20 {8} 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:

2Co 13:3

13:3 {1} Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is {a} mighty in you.

2Co 13:4

13:4 For though he was crucified through {b} 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.

2Co 13:5

13:5 {2} 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?

2Co 13:6

13:6 {3} But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.

2Co 13:7

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 {c} reprobates.

2Co 13:9

13:9 For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, [even] your {d} perfection.

2Co 13:11

13:11 {4} 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.

2Co 13:12

13:12 {5} Greet one another with an holy kiss.
