1 Thessalonians 2:6–8

6 nor did we aseek glory from men, either from you or from others, even though as bapostles of Christ 1we might have 2asserted our authority.

7 But we 1proved to be 2agentle 3among you, bas a nursing mother 4tenderly cares for her own children.

8 Having so fond an affection for you, we were well-pleased to aimpart to you not only the bgospel of God but also our own 1lives, because you had become 2very dear to us.
