Timothy's Encouraging Report

But (A)now that Timothy has come to us from you, and has brought us the good news of (B)your faith and love and reported (C)that you always remember us kindly and (D)long to see us, as we long to see you— for this reason, brothers,[a] in all our distress and affliction (E)we have been comforted about you through your faith. For now we live, if you (F)are standing fast in the Lord. For (G)what thanksgiving can we return to God for you, for all the joy that we feel for your sake before our God, 10 as we pray most earnestly (H)night and day (I)that we may see you face to face and (J)supply what is lacking in your faith?

11 Now may (K)our God and Father himself, and our Lord Jesus, (L)direct our way to you, 12 and may the Lord (M)make you increase and abound in love (N)for one another and for all, as we do for you, 13 so that he may (O)establish your hearts blameless in holiness before (P)our God and Father, at (Q)the coming of our Lord Jesus (R)with all his saints.
