2 Corinthians 13:8-10 The Passion Translation (TPT)

For in reality, the power we have is used in support of the truth, not against it. And we claim before God[a] that you will be fully equipped and mature, for it brings us great joy when you are strong, even if we seem weak and denigrated.

Paul’s Farewell

10 I’m writing my honest feelings to you from afar so that when I arrive I won’t have to correct you by using the authority the Lord has given me, for I want to build you up and not tear you down.


  1. 2 Corinthians 13:9 The Greek word eukhomai (accusative and infinitive construction) means more than prayer; it is to make a claim before God in prayer. The verb is eukhe, which means a votive obligation and is translated “make a vow” in Acts 18:18.
