2 Corinthians 13:7-9 New Matthew Bible (NMB)
7 I desire before God that you do no evil – not that we should seem commendable, but that you should do that which is honourable. And let us be counted as uncommendable persons.
8 We can do nothing against the truth, only for the truth. 9 We are glad when we are weak and you strong. This also we wish for: even that you were perfect.
