2 Corinthians 13:8-10 Revised Geneva Translation (RGT)
8 For we cannot do anything against the truth, but for the truth.
9 For we are glad when we are weak, and you are strong. For this also we pray: even your perfecting.
10 Therefore, I write these things while being absent (so that when I am present, I should not use sharpness) according to the power which the Lord has given me to edification, and not to destruction.
