25 correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, 25 Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth,
26 and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will. 26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.
