[or, "the Holy Spirit who brings promises"]. 14 He is a down payment of our inheritance, until God's own possession [i.e., His people] receives redemption. [Note: Here "redemption" refers to receiving a new body in heaven]. May this bring about praise to God's splendor. 15 For this reason also, since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all of the saints [i.e., God's holy people],
