7Now I pray to God that you do no evil, not that we should appear approved, but that you should do what is honorable, though #2 Cor. 6:9we may seem disqualified. 8For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. 9For we are glad #1 Cor. 4:10when we are weak and you are strong. And this also we pray, #1 Cor. 1:10; 2 Cor. 13:11; Eph. 4:12; (1 Thess. 3:10)that you may be made complete. 10#1 Cor. 4:21Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the #1 Cor. 5:4; 2 Cor. 10:8authority which the Lord has given me for edification and not for destruction.
