The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
14 I hope to visit you soon, but just in case I'm delayed, I'm writing this letter so 14 Although I hope to come to you soon, I am writing you these instructions so that,
15 you'll know how things ought to go in God's household, this God-alive church, bastion of truth. 15 if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God's household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.
16 This Christian life is a great mystery, far exceeding our understanding, but some things are clear enough: He appeared in a human body, was proved right by the invisible Spirit, was seen by angels. He was proclaimed among all kinds of peoples, believed in all over the world, taken up into heavenly glory. 16 Beyond all question, the mystery of godliness is great: He appeared in a body, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.
