2 Corinthians 8:18-24

CJB 18 And with him we are sending the brother whose work for the Good News is praised in all the congregations; NIV 18 And we are sending along with him the brother who is praised by all the churches for his service to the gospel. CJB 19 not only that, he has also been appointed by the congregations to travel with us, so that the way we administer this charitable work will bring honor to the Lord and show our eagerness to help. NIV 19 What is more, he was chosen by the churches to accompany us as we carry the offering, which we administer in order to honor the Lord himself and to show our eagerness to help. CJB 20 Our aim in this is to show that our conduct in dealing with these substantial sums is above reproach; NIV 20 We want to avoid any criticism of the way we administer this liberal gift. CJB 21 for we take pains to do what is right not only in the sight of God but also in the sight of other people. i NIV 21 For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of man. CJB 22 With these two we are sending another brother of ours, one whose diligence we have tested many times in many ways, but who is now all the more diligent because of his great confidence in you. NIV 22 In addition, we are sending with them our brother who has often proved to us in many ways that he is zealous, and now even more so because of his great confidence in you. CJB 23 As for Titus, he is my partner who works with me on your behalf; and the other brothers with him are emissaries of the congregations and bring honor to the Messiah. NIV 23 As for Titus, he is my partner and co-worker among you; as for our brothers, they are representatives of the churches and an honor to Christ. CJB 24 So the love you show these men will justify our pride in you to them, and through them to the congregations that sent them. NIV 24 Therefore show these men the proof of your love and the reason for our pride in you, so that the churches can see it.
