Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of the flesh and of the spirit, perfecting sanctification in the fear of God.
Receive us. We have injured no man: we have corrupted no man: we have overreached no man.
I speak not this to your condemnation. For we have said before that you are in our hearts: to die together and to live together.
Great is my confidence for you: great is my glorying for you. I am filled with comfort: I exceedingly abound with joy in all our tribulation.
For also, when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest: but we suffered all tribulation. Combats without: fears within.
But God, who comforteth the humble, comforted us by the coming of Titus.
