3 Not that the troubles should come as any surprise to you. You've always known that we're in for this kind of thing. It's part of our calling.
4 When we were with you, we made it quite clear that there was trouble ahead. And now that it's happened, you know what it's like.
5 That's why I couldn't quit worrying; I had to know for myself how you were doing in the faith. I didn't want the Tempter getting to you and tearing down everything we had built up together.
