Therefore seeing we have this ministry, according to the mercy we have received, we fault not,
but remove from ourselves every hidden shameful thing, not walking in craftiness, nor adulterating the word of God, but in the manifestation of the truth, commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
But if our gospel is hid, it is hid to those that are lost,
In whom the god of this age has blinded the understanding of those who do not believe, that the light of the gospel of the glory of the Christ, who is the image of God, should not shine in them.
For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your slaves for Jesus’ sake.
For the God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts to bring forth the light of the knowledge of the clarity of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
