2 Corinthians 8:16–24

16 But athanks be to God who bputs the same earnestness on your behalf in the heart of cTitus.

17 For he not only accepted our aappeal, but being himself very earnest, he has gone to you of his own accord.

18 We have sent along with him athe brother whose fame in the things of the bgospel has spread through call the churches;

19 aand not only this, but he has also been bappointed by the churches to travel with us in cthis gracious work, which is being administered by us for the glory of the Lord Himself, and to show our dreadiness,

20 1taking precaution so that no one will discredit us in our administration of this generous gift;

21 for we ahave regard for what is honorable, not only in bthe sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.

22 We have sent with them our brother, whom we have often tested and found diligent in many things, but now even more diligent because of his great confidence in you.

23 As for aTitus, he is my bpartner and fellow worker 1among you; as for our cbrethren, they are 2dmessengers of the churches, ea glory to Christ.

24 Therefore 1openly before the churches, 2show them the proof of your love and of our areason for boasting about you.
