King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
4 But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak ; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts. 4 On the contrary, we speak as men approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please men but God, who tests our hearts.
5 For neither at any time used we flattering words , as ye know , nor a cloke of covetousness; God is witness: 5 You know we never used flattery, nor did we put on a mask to cover up greed--God is our witness.
