2 Corinthians 13:5

Greetings,

2 Corinthians 13:5:

Εαυτους πειραζετε ει εστε εν τη πιστει EAUTOUS PEIRAZETE EI ESTE EN TH PISTEI

Every translation I have access to online since my Bible Works has been down, translates this passage with something to the effect of “test yourselves to see if you are in the faith.” It seems to me that in this passage, you have a condition of the first class with the apodosis placed before the protasis. And the words “to see” are nowhere in the text. Might this be better translated simply as “If you are in the faith, then test yourselves?”

Thanks.
