And such trust have we through Christ toward God:
In whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in him.
Hearken now unto my voice, I will give you counsel, and God shall be with you: Represent the people before God, that you may bring the causes unto God:
Now thanks be unto God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the fragrance of his knowledge by us in every place.
Being confident of this very thing, that he who has begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith toward God is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak anything.
