I told you before, and foretell you, c ch. 10. 2. as if I were present, the second time; and being absent now I write to them dwhich heretofore have sinned, d ch. 12. 21. and to all other, that, if I come again, I will not e ch. 1. 23. 3 spare: since ye seek a proof of Christ f speaking in f Matt. 10. 20. me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty sin ch. 2. 10. 4 you. For though he was crucified through weakness, & 1 Cor. 9. 2. yet he liveth by the power of God.
