1 Paul, and a, and b, c the d of the e which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
2 We give a to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;
3 Remembering without ceasing your work of a, and b of love, and c of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;
4 Knowing, brethren a, your b of God.
5 For our a b not unto you in c only, but also in d, and in the e, and in much assurance; as ye know what f of men we were among you for your sake.
6 And ye became a of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much b, with c of the Holy Ghost:
7 So that ye were a to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia.
8 For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every a your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing.
9 For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from a to serve the b and true God;
10 And to wait for his Son from a, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which b us from the c to come.
