Matthew 18:15-18 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
Restoring a Brother
15 “If your brother sins against you,[a] go and rebuke him in private.[b] If he listens to you, you have won your brother. 16 But if he won’t listen, take one or two more with you, so that by the testimony[c] of two or three witnesses every fact may be established.[d] 17 If he pays no attention to them, tell the church.[e] But if he doesn’t pay attention even to the church, let him be like an unbeliever[f] and a tax collector to you. 18 I assure you: Whatever you bind on earth is already bound[g] in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth is already loosed[h] in heaven.
