CEB 9 You remember, brothers and sisters, our efforts and hard work. We preached God's good news to you, while we worked night and day so we wouldn't be a burden on any of you. NRS 9 You remember our labor and toil, brothers and sisters; we worked night and day, so that we might not burden any of you while we proclaimed to you the gospel of God. CEB 10 You and God are witnesses of how holy, just, and blameless we were toward you believers. NRS 10 You are witnesses, and God also, how pure, upright, and blameless our conduct was toward you believers. CEB 11 Likewise, you know how we treated each of you like a father treats his own children. NRS 11 As you know, we dealt with each one of you like a father with his children, CEB 12 We appealed to you, encouraged you, and pleaded with you to live lives worthy of the God who is calling you into his own kingdom and glory. NRS 12 urging and encouraging you and pleading that you lead a life worthy of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory. CEB 13 We also thank God constantly for this: when you accepted God's word that you heard from us, you welcomed it for what it truly is. Instead of accepting it as a human message, you accepted it as God's message, and it continues to work in you who are believers. NRS 13 We also constantly give thanks to God for this, that when you received the word of God that you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word but as what it really is, God's word, which is also at work in you believers.
