New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
7 But just as you abound in everything, in faith and utterance and knowledge and in all earnestness and in the love we inspired in you, see that you abound in this gracious work also. 7 But just as you excel in everything--in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us--see that you also excel in this grace of giving.
8 I am not speaking this as a command, but as proving through the earnestness of others the sincerity of your love also. 8 I am not commanding you, but I want to test the sincerity of your love by comparing it with the earnestness of others.
