2 Corinthians 13:1-4 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

13 Lo! this third time I come to you, and in the mouth of two or of three witnesses [and in the mouth of two or three witnesses] every word shall stand.

I said before, and [I] say before, as present twice, and now absent, to them that before have sinned, and to all others; for if I come again, I shall not spare.

Whether ye seek the proof of that Christ, that speaketh in me, which is not feeble in you, [but is mighty in you]?[a]

For though he was crucified of infirmity, but he liveth of the virtue of God. For also we be frail in him [For why and we be sick in him], but we shall live with him of the virtue of God in us.

  1. 2 Corinthians 13:3 Whether ye seek an experiment, or assaying, of him that speaketh in me, Christ, the which is not sick in you, but is mighty in you?

2 Corinthians 13:1-4 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

He promises to come to them, and he exhorts them to get themselves in order so that he may find them perfect and in harmony.

13 Now I am coming the third time to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall everything be established. I told you before, and I am warning you now, and as I said when I was present with you the second time, so I write now being absent to those who in time past have sinned, and to all others: if I come again, I will not spare, seeing that you seek proof of Christ who speaks in me – who among you is not weak, but is mighty in you. And indeed, though it came of weakness that he was crucified, yet he lives through the power of God. And we no doubt are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the might of God among you.

2 Corinthians 13:1-4 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

13 1 Coming the third time, 2 he denounceth the sharper vengeance toward them, 4 who have a perfect trial of the power of Christ in his Apostleship: 7 At length he prayeth for their repentance, 11 And wisheth them prosperity.

Lo this is the third time that I come unto you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word stand.

I told you before, and tell you before: as though I had been present the second time, so write I now being absent to them, which heretofore have sinned, and to all others, that if I come again, I will not spare,

[a]Seeing that ye seek experience of Christ, that speaketh in me, which toward you is not weak, but is [b]mighty in you.

For though he was crucified concerning [c]his infirmity, yet liveth he through the power of God. And we no doubt are weak in him, but we shall live with him, through the power of God toward you.

Footnotes:

  1. 2 Corinthians 13:3 A most sharp reprehension, for that, while they despise the Apostle’s admonitions, they tempt Christ’s own patience: and also while they condemn him as wretched and miserable, they lay nothing herein against him, which is not common to him with Christ.
  2. 2 Corinthians 13:3 And will be most mighty to be revenged of you, when need shall be.
  3. 2 Corinthians 13:4 As touching that base form of a servant which he took upon him when he abased himself.

2 Corinthians 13:1-4 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

13 This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established. I told you before, and foretell you, as if I were present, the second time; and being absent now I write to them which heretofore have sinned, and to all other, that, if I come again, I will not spare: since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you. For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.
