'May' in the Bible

May grace and peace be granted to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

May you abound in and be filled with the fruits of righteousness (of right standing with God and right doing) which come through Jesus Christ (the Anointed One), to the honor and praise of God [ that His glory may be both manifested and recognized].

That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again.

But I am hoping in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you before long, so that I may be comforted when I have news of you.

him, indeed, therefore, I hope to send, when I may see through the things concerning me -- immediately;

I have sent him therefore the more diligently, that, when you see him again, you may rejoice, and that I may be the less sorrowful.

although I myself might have some excuse for confidence in outward ceremonies. If any one else claims a right to trust in them, far more may I:

And that I may [actually] be found and known as in Him, not having any [self-achieved] righteousness that can be called my own, based on my obedience to the Law's demands (ritualistic uprightness and supposed right standing with God thus acquired), but possessing that [genuine righteousness] which comes through faith in Christ (the Anointed One), the [truly] right standing with God, which comes from God by [saving] faith.

in the hope that I may attain to the resurrection from among the dead.

Not that I did already obtain, or have been already perfected; but I pursue, if also I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by the Christ Jesus;

Who shall transform our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto the body of his glory, according to the working by which he is also able to subdue all things unto himself.

Not because I desire a gift, but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirits.
