1 Thessalonians 2:17-20 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

17 And, brethren, we desolate from you for a time, by mouth and in beholding, but not in heart, have hied more plenteously to see your face with great desire.[a]

18 For we would come to you, yea, I Paul, once and again, but Satan hindered us [but Satan letted us].

19 For why what is our hope, or joy, or crown of glory? Whether ye be not before our Lord Jesus Christ in his coming?

20 For ye be our glory and joy.

1 Thessalonians 2:17-20 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

17 But since, brethren, we have been kept from you for a season (as to bodily presence, but not in the heart), we tried all the more to see you personally, with great desire. 18 And therefore we would have gone to you – I, Paul, once and again – but Satan withstood us. 19 For what is our hope or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Is it not you in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming? 20 Yes, you are our pride and joy.

17 [a]Forasmuch, brethren, as we [b]were kept from you for a season, concerning sight, but not in the heart, we enforced the more to see your face with great desire.

18 Therefore we would have come unto you (I Paul, at least once or twice) but Satan hindered us.

19 For what is our hope or joy, or crown of rejoicing? are not even you it in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?

20 Yea, ye are our glory and joy.

  2. 1 Thessalonians 2:17 Were kept asunder from you, and as it were orphans.

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 Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us. 19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming? 20 For ye are our glory and joy.
