|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
26 He has been wanting in the worst way to get back with you. Especially since recovering from the illness you heard about, he's been wanting to get back and reassure you that he is just fine.
26 For he longs for all of you and is distressed because you heard he was ill.
