For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work [a]among you will complete it [b]by (A)the day of Christ Jesus. [c]For (B)it is only right for me to feel this way about you all, because I (C)have you in my heart, since both in my [d](D)imprisonment and in the (E)defense and confirmation of the (F)gospel, you all are [e]partakers of grace with me. For (G)God is my witness, how I long for you all with the [f]affection of (H)Christ Jesus. And this I pray, that (I)your love may overflow still more and more in (J)real knowledge and all discernment, 10 so that you may [g](K)discover the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and blameless for (L)the day of Christ; 11 having been filled with the (M)fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, for the glory and praise of God.
