Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
3 so that no one will be shaken by these persecutions. For you yourselves know that we are appointed to this. 3 so that no one would be unsettled by these trials. You know quite well that we were destined for them.
4 In fact, when we were with you, we told you previously that we were going to suffer persecution, and as you know, it happened. 4 In fact, when we were with you, we kept telling you that we would be persecuted. And it turned out that way, as you well know.
5 For this reason, when I could no longer stand it, I also sent to find out about your faith, fearing that the tempter had tempted you and that our labor might be for nothing. 5 For this reason, when I could stand it no longer, I sent to find out about your faith. I was afraid that in some way the tempter might have tempted you and our efforts might have been useless.
