2 Corinthians 8:19-24New American Standard Bible (NASB)
19 and not only this, but he has also been appointed by the churches to travel with us in this gracious work, which is being administered by us for the glory of the Lord Himself, and to show our readiness,20 [a]taking precaution so that no one will discredit us in our administration of this generous gift;21 for we have regard for what is honorable, not only in the 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 Titus, he is my partner and fellow worker [b]among you; as for our brethren, they are[c]messengers of the churches, a glory to Christ.24 Therefore [d]openly before the churches, [e]show them the proof of your love and of our reason for boasting about you.
2 Corinthians 9:12-15New American Standard Bible (NASB)
12 For the ministry of this service is not only fully supplying the needs of the [a]saints, but is also overflowing through many thanksgivings to God.13 Because of the proof given by this ministry, they will glorify God for your obedience to your confession of the gospel of Christ and for the liberality of your [b]contribution to them and to all,14 while they also, by prayer on your behalf, yearn for you because of the surpassing grace of God in you.15 Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
