    VERSE (10) -
    2Co 2:3; 10:2; 12:20,21 1Co 4:21

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:10

    Por tanto os escribo esto ausente, por no trataros en presencia con ms dureza, conforme a la potestad que el Seor me ha dado para edificacin, y no para destruccin.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 13:10

    Verse 10. Therefore I
    write these things] I only threaten you now, by this epistle, to put you on your guard, and lead you to reformation before I visit you that I may not then have to use sharpness, apotomia, a cutting off, employing thus my apostolical authority to inflict punishment; a power which God has given me, rather to be employed in your edification than in your destruction.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 10. Therefore I
    write these things being absent , etc..] Assuring them of his power and authority, expressing his concern for their welfare, earnestly desiring that they might be kept from evil, and perform good works; and that they might be in a more honourable, orderly, and comfortable situation, whilst he was absent from them, and before he came among them: lest, being present, I should use sharpness ; meaning severe reproofs and censures, or rather the exercise of the apostolic rod: according to the power the Lord haft given me, to edification, and not to destruction ; by striking persons dead, as Ananias and Sapphira were by Peter; or by delivering them up to Satan to have corporeal punishment inflicted on them, as were Hymenaeus and Philetus, and the incestuous person by the Apostle Paul; which, though it was for the destruction of the flesh, yet for the salvation of their souls, and for the good, use, and edification of the rest of the society, that they might take warning thereby, and shun the evils which were the occasion of such severity.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 7-10 - The most desirable thing we can ask of
    God, for ourselves and ou friends, is to be kept from sin, that we and they may not do evil. We have far more need to pray that we may not do evil, than that we ma not suffer evil. The apostle not only desired that they might be kep from sin, but also that they might grow in grace, and increase in holiness. We are earnestly to pray to God for those we caution, tha they may cease to do evil, and learn to do well; and we should be gla for others to be strong in the grace of Christ, though it may be the means of showing our own weakness. let us also pray that we may be enabled to make a proper use of all our talents.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    10. Use sharpness (apotomwv crhswmai). Rev., more literally and correctly, deal sharply, thus giving the force of the adverb. For sharply see on the
    kindred ajpotomia severity, Rom. xi. 22.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    13:10 {That I may not when present deal sharply} (hina parwn apotomws creswmai). Late adverb from apotomos, curt,
    cut off. In N.T. only here and #Tit 1:13.
