Matthew 18:15–20

Restoring a Brother

15 If your brother sins against you, x go and rebuke him in private. y If he listens to you, you have won your brother. z 16 But if he won’t listen, take one or two more with you, so that by the testimony a of two or three witnesses every fact may be established. b c 17 If he pays no attention to them, tell the church. d e But if he doesn’t pay attention even to the church, let him be like an unbeliever f and a tax collector to you. g 18 I assure you: Whatever you bind on earth is already bound h in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth is already loosed i in heaven. j 19 Again, I assure you: If two of you on earth agree about any matter that you k pray for, it will be done for you l by My Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there among them.”
