Some indeed also for envy and strife, but some also for good will, preach the Christ.
These indeed out of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the glad tidings;
but those out of contention, announce the Christ, not purely, supposing to arouse tribulation for my bonds.
What is it then? at any rate, in every way, whether in pretext or in truth, Christ is announced; and in this I rejoice, yea, also I will rejoice;
for I know that this shall turn out for me to salvation, through your supplication and [the] supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ;
according to my earnest a expectation and hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but in all boldness, as always, now also Christ shall be magnified in my body whether by life or by death.
For for me to live [is] Christ, and to die gain;
but if to live in flesh [is my lot], this is for me worth the while: b and what I shall choose I cannot tell.
But I am pressed by both, having the desire for departure and being with Christ, [for] [it is] very much better,
but remaining in the flesh [is] more necessary for your sakes;
and having confidence of this, I know that I shall remain and abide along with you all, for your progress and joy in c faith;
