Two or Three Witnesses

Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before [with, ἐπὶ] two or three witnesses. Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. (1 Timothy 5:19-20)

This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established. I told you before, and foretell you, as if I were present, the second time; and being absent now, I write to them which heretofore have sinned, and to all the others, that, if I come again, I will not spare. (2 Corinthians 13:1-4)
