13 even though I was formerly a blasphemer and a 4persecutor and a violent aggressor. Yet I was 5shown mercy because 6I acted ignorantly in unbelief;
14 and the 7grace of our Lord was more than abundant, with the 8faith and love which are found in Christ Jesus.
16 Yet for this reason I 13found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might 14demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those awho would believe in Him for eternal life.
