Galatians 4:12-20New American Standard Bible (NASB)

For I bear you witness that, if possible, you would have plucked out your eyes and given them to me.16 So have I become your enemy by [g]telling you the truth?17 They eagerly seek you, not commendably, but they wish to shut you out so that you will seek them.18 But it is good always to be eagerly sought in a commendable [h]manner, and not only when I am present with you.19 My children, with whom I am again in labor until Christ is formed in you—20 but I could wish to be present with you now and to change my tone, for I am perplexed about you.
