For the rest, brethren, be praying for us, - that, the word of the Lord, may be running, and gaining glory, according as it did even with you;
From you, in fact, hath sounded forth the word of the Lord - not only m Macedonia and in Achaia, but, in every place, your faith which is toward God, hath gone forth, so that, no need, have we to be saying anything;
I will bow down towards thy holy temple, and thank thy Name, for thy lovingkindness and for thy faithfulness, For thou hast magnified, above all thy Name, thy word!
Beg ye, therefore, of the Lord of the harvest, - That he would thrust forth labourers, into his harvest.
And he was saying unto them - The harvest, indeed, is, great, but, the labourers, few; beg ye, therefore, of the Lord of the harvest, that he would thrust forth, labourers, into his harvest.
And, the word of God, went on growing, and the number of the disciples in Jerusalem continued to multiply exceedingly; a great multitude of the priests also, were becoming obedient unto the faith.
And they of the nations, hearing this , began to rejoice, and to be glorifying God, and they believed - as many as had become disposed for life age-abiding.
I beseech you, moreover, brethren, through our Lord Jesus Christ, and through the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in your prayers on my behalf unto God, -
Ye also labouring together on our behalf, by your supplication, that, unto many persons, being due the gift of favour, unto us, through means of many, might thanks be given in our behalf.
And on behalf of me; - that, unto me, may be given discourse in the opening of my mouth, with freedom of utterance, to make known the sacred secret of the glad-message
Praying, at the same time, for us also, - that, God, would open unto us a door for the word, so that we may speak the sacred secret of the Christ - for the sake of which also I am in bonds,
How that, our glad-message, came not unto you, in word only, but also in power, and in Holy Spirit, and in much assurance, - even as ye know what manner of men we became unto you, for your sake;
For, yourselves, know, brethren, our entrance which was unto you - that it hath not proved void;
And, for this cause, we, are also giving thanks unto God unceasingly, that, when ye received a spoken word from us - which was God's, ye welcomed it - not as a human word, but, even as it truly is, a divine word, - which is also inwardly working itself in you who believe.
For the rest, brethren, we request and exhort you, in our Lord Jesus, that, even as ye received from us, how ye must needs walk and please God, - even as ye also do walk, that ye would abound still more.
In which I am suffering hardship, even unto bonds, as an evil-doer; but, the word of God, is not bound.
Be praying for us; for we persuade ourselves that an honourable conscience have we, in all things honourably, desiring to behave ourselves.
