|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
11 The longer this waiting goes on, the deeper the ache. I so want to be there to deliver God's gift in person and watch you grow stronger right before my eyes!
11 I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong--
