1 Thessalonians 2:5
Read 1 Thessalonians 2:5 Using Other Translations
For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; God is witness:
For we never came with words of flattery, as you know, nor with a pretext for greed--God is witness.
Never once did we try to win you with flattery, as you well know. And God is our witness that we were not pretending to be your friends just to get your money!
