In this confidence I intended at first to come to you, so that you might twice receive a blessing;
For I long to see you so that I may impart some spiritual gift to you, that you may be established;
But I will come to you soon, if the Lord wills, and I shall find out, not the words of those who are arrogant but their power.
I know that when I come to you, I will come in the fullness of the blessing of Christ.
If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, so that you will not come together for judgment. The remaining matters I will arrange when I come.
And working together with Him, we also urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain—
Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy in the faith,
