17 But, brothers and sisters, when we were orphaned by being separated from you for a short time (in person, not in thought),(A) out of our intense longing we made every effort to see you.(B)
17 But we, brethren, being taken from you for a short time in presence, not in heart, endeavoured the more abundantly to see your face with great desire.
18 For we wanted to come to you—certainly I, Paul, did, again and again—but Satan(A) blocked our way.(B)
18 Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.
