D. Concerning the Apostle's Coming
1. Being One with Christ
15 And in this confidence I intended to acome to you previously that you might have 1double bgrace,
16 And through you to pass through into 1aMacedonia, and again from Macedonia to come to you and be sent forward by you into bJudea.
17 This therefore intending, did I then use fickleness? Or the things which I purpose, do I purpose aaccording to the flesh, so that with me there should be Yes, yes and No, no?
18 1But as God is afaithful, our 2bword toward you is not yes and no.
19 1For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you through us, through me and 2Silvanus and Timothy, did not become yes and no, but our word has become ayes in Him.
20 1For as many apromises of God as there are, in 2Him is the 3Yes; therefore also through 2Him is 4the bAmen to God, 5for cglory through 6us to God.
21 1But the One who 2firmly attaches 3us 4with you unto 5Christ and has 6aanointed us is God,
22 He who has also 1asealed us and given the Spirit in our 2hearts as a 3bpledge.
