(The second epistle to the Corinthians was written from Philippi, a city of Macedonia, by Titus and Lucas.). Unless Christ be in us by his Spirit, and power of his love, our faith is dead, and we are yet disapproved by our Judge.7-10 The most desirable thing we can ask of God, for ourselves and our friends, is to be kept from sin, that we and they may not do evil. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you. (7-10) And ends the epistle with a salutation and blessing. 4 For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. (P) 10 This is why I write these things when I am absent, that when I come I may not have to be harsh(Q) in my use of authority—the authority the Lord gave me for building you up, not for tearing you down.(R).

They ought to know if Christ Jesus was in them, by the influences, graces, and indwelling of his Spirit, by his kingdom set up in their hearts. 11 Finally, brethren, farewell. 7 Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates. 6 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates. We have far more need to pray that we may not do evil, than that we may not suffer evil.

7 Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.
