Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full.
Face to face
I have still much to say to you, but you are not strong enough for it now.
3 John 1:13
I had much to say to you, but it is not my purpose to put it all down with ink and pen:
Whenever I go to Spain (for it is my hope to see you on my way, and to be sent on there by you, if first I may in some measure have been comforted by your company)--
1 Corinthians 16:5
But I will come to you after I have gone through Macedonia, for that is my purpose;
And make a room ready for me; for I am hoping that through your prayers I will be given to you.
I make this request more strongly, in the hope of coming back to you more quickly.
Face to face
With him I will have talk mouth to mouth, openly and not in dark sayings; and with his eyes he will see the form of the Lord: why then had you no fear of saying evil against my servant Moses?
I have said these things to you so that I may have joy in you and so that your joy may be complete.
Up to now you have made no request in my name: do so, and it will be answered, so that your hearts may be full of joy.
And now I come to you; and these things I say in the world so that they may have my joy complete in them.
2 Timothy 1:4
Desiring to see you, keeping in my memory your weeping, so that I may be full of joy;
1 John 1:4
And we are writing these things to you so that our joy may be made complete.
