New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
3 so that no one would be shaken by these persecutions. Indeed, you yourselves know that this is what we are destined for. 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 beforehand that we were to suffer persecution; so it turned out, as you know. 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 bear it no longer, I sent to find out about your faith; I was afraid that somehow the tempter had tempted you and that our labor had been in vain. 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.
