2 Corinthians 13:10; 1 Corinthians 4:21

10 For this reason I write these things while I am away from you, that when I come zI may not have to be asevere in my use of bthe authority that the Lord has given me for building up and not for tearing down.


21 What do you wish? vShall I come to you with a rod, or with love in a spirit of gentleness?
