New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
7 for this reason, brethren, in all our distress and affliction we were comforted about you through your faith; 7 Therefore, brothers, in all our distress and persecution we were encouraged about you because of your faith.
8 for now we really live, if you stand firm in the Lord . 8 For now we really live, since you are standing firm in the Lord.
9 For what thanks can we render to God for you in return for all the joy with which we rejoice before our God on your account, 9 How can we thank God enough for you in return for all the joy we have in the presence of our God because of you?
10 as we night and day keep praying most earnestly that we may see your face, and may complete what is lacking in your faith? 10 Night and day we pray most earnestly that we may see you again and supply what is lacking in your faith.
11 Now may our God and Father Himself and Jesus our Lord direct our way to you; 11 Now may our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus clear the way for us to come to you.
12 and may the Lord cause you to increase and abound in love for one another, and for all people, just as we also do for you; 12 May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.
13 so that He may establish your hearts without blame in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all His saints. 13 May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones.
