3 that no one be moved by these afflictions. For you yourselves know that 1we are destined for this.
4 For when we were with you, we kept telling you beforehand that we were to suffer affliction, 2just as it has come to pass, and just as you know.
5 For this reason, 3when I could bear it no longer, 4I sent to learn about your faith, 5for fear that somehow 6the tempter had tempted you and 7our labor would be in vain.
