But some for envy and strife, some for good will, preach Christ;
and some of charity, witting that I am put in the defence of the gospel.
But some of strife [Forsooth some of contention, or strife,] show Christ not cleanly, guessing them(selves) to raise tribulation to my bonds.

And I know, that this thing shall come to me into health by your prayer, and the under-ministering of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
by mine abiding and hope [after mine abiding and hope]. For in nothing I shall be ashamed, but in all trust as evermore and now, Christ shall be magnified in my body, either by life, either by death.
For [to] me to live is Christ, and to die is winning.
That if to live in flesh, [this] is fruit of work to me, lo! what I shall choose, I know not. [That if to live in flesh, this is fruit of work to me, and what I shall choose, I know not.]
But I am constrained of two things, I have desire to be departed [Forsooth I am constrained of two things, having desire to be dissolved, or departed the soul from the body], and to be with Christ, it is much more better;
but to dwell in flesh, is needful for you.
And I trusting this thing, know that I shall dwell, and perfectly dwell to all you, to your profit and joy of faith,
