15 To be sure, some preach Christ out of envy and strife, g but others out of good will. h 16 These do so out of love, i knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel; 17 the others proclaim Christ out of rivalry, j not sincerely, seeking to cause me anxiety in my imprisonment. k 18 What does it matter? Just that in every way, whether out of false motives l or true, Christ is proclaimed. And in this I rejoice. Yes, and I will rejoice
1:15 The good will of men, or God’s good will or favor
1:17 * sincerely, intending to raise tribulation to my bonds
