King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
3 We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, 3 We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you,
4 Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints, 4 because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all the saints--
5 For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel; 5 the faith and love that spring from the hope that is stored up for you in heaven and that you have already heard about in the word of truth, the gospel
6 Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit , as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth: 6 that has come to you. All over the world this gospel is bearing fruit and growing, just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and understood God's grace in all its truth.
7 As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ; 7 You learned it from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant, who is a faithful minister of Christ on our behalf,
8 Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit. 8 and who also told us of your love in the Spirit.
