||New International Version (NIV)
2 I beg of you that when I am present I may not have to show boldness with such confidence as I count on showing against some who suspect us of acting in worldly fashion.
2 I beg you that when I come I may not have to be as bold as I expect to be toward some people who think that we live by the standards of this world.
