1 Thessalonians 2:1–8

For yourselves, brethren, know our aentrance in unto you, that it was not in vain: But even after that we had suffered before, and were bshamefully entreated, as ye know, cat Philippi, dwe were bold in our God eto speak unto you the gospel of God with much fcontention. For our gexhortation was not of hdeceit, nor of iuncleanness, nor in kguile: But as lwe were allowed of God mto be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as npleasing men, but God, owhich trieth our hearts. For neither at any time knused we flattering words, as ye know, nor pa cloke of qcovetousness; rGod is witness: Nor sof men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when twe might have ||been uburdensome, as wthe apostles of Christ. But we were xgentle among you, even yas a nurse cherisheth her children: So being affectionately desirous of you, we were willing to have imparted unto you, not the gospel of God only, zbut also our own souls, because ye were dear unto us.
