For it is God that worketh in you, both to will [both to desire], and to perform, for good will.
And do ye all things without grumblings and doubtings; [Forsooth do ye all things without grutchings and doubtings;]
that ye be without plaint, and simple as the sons of God, without reproof, in the middle of a depraved nation [in the middle of a shrewd nation] and a wayward; among which ye shine as givers of light in the world [among whom ye shine as givers of light in the world;].
And hold ye together the word of life to my glory in the day of Christ; for I have not run in vain, neither I have travailed in vain. [holding together the word of life to my glory in the day of Christ; for I have not run in vain, neither in vain travailed.]
But though I be offered, or slain, on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I have joy, and I thank you all. [But and if I be offered, or slain, upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I have joy, and together thank you all.]
And for the same thing have ye joy, and thank ye me. [The same thing forsooth and ye have joy, and together thank me.]
And I hope in the Lord Jesus, that I shall send Timothy soon to you [Forsooth I hope in the Lord Jesus, me to send Timothy soon to you], that I be of good comfort, when those things be known that be about you.
For I have no man so of one will, that is busy for you with clean affection.
For all men seek those things that be their own, not those that be of Christ Jesus.
But know ye the assay of him [Forsooth know ye the experiment, or assay, of him], for as a son to the father he hath served with me in the gospel.
Therefore I hope that I shall send him to you, at once as I see what things be about me. [Forsooth I hope me to send him to you, anon as I shall see what things be about me.]
