Read 1 Corinthians 16:7 Using Other Translations
For I will not see you now by the way; but I trust to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit.
For I do not want to see you now just in passing. I hope to spend some time with you, if the Lord permits.
This time I don’t want to make just a short visit and then go right on. I want to come and stay awhile, if the Lord will let me.
