And in this confidence I was purposing before to come to you, that ye might have a second favor;
For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, to the end that ye may be established;
but I will come to you shortly if the Lord will; and I will know, not the word of those who are puffed up, but the power;
and I know that, when coming to you, I will come in the fulness of the blessing of Christ.
If any one is hungry, let him eat at home, that ye come not together unto judgment. And the rest I will set in order, when I come.
And, working together with Him, we also entreat you that ye receive not the grace of God in vain
And, having become assured of this, I know that I shall abide, and continue with you all for your progress and joy in the faith,
