|New American Standard (NAS)
||New International Version (NIV)
17 But we, brethren, having been taken away from you for a short while -in person, not in spirit -were all the more eager with great desire to see your face.
17 But, brothers, when we were torn away from you for a short time (in person, not in thought), out of our intense longing we made every effort to see you.
