2 Corinthians 13:8-10 Living Bible (TLB)

Our responsibility is to encourage the right at all times, not to hope for evil.[a] We are glad to be weak and despised if you are really strong. Our greatest wish and prayer is that you will become mature Christians.

10 I am writing this to you now in the hope that I won’t need to scold and punish when I come; for I want to use the Lord’s authority that he has given me, not to punish you but to make you strong.
