|GOD'S WORD Translation (GW)
||New International Version (NIV)
10 I'm giving you my opinion because it will be helpful to you. Last year you were not only willing [to take a collection] but had already started to do it.
10 And here is my advice about what is best for you in this matter: Last year you were the first not only to give but also to have the desire to do so.
