B. Exercising Foresight for What Is Honorable
16 But athanks be to God who puts the same 1bearnestness on your behalf in the heart of cTitus,
17 Because he not only received the 1aentreaty, but being more earnest, he also went forth bof his own accord to you.
18 And we sent together with him the abrother whose praise in the gospel is throughout ball the churches,
19 And not only this, but who has also been selected by the churches as our fellow traveler in this 1agrace which is being ministered by us, to the bglory of the Lord Himself and to demonstrate our ceagerness;
20 1Avoiding this, that anyone should find fault with us in this 2abundance which is being ministered by us.
21 For we 1exercise foresight for what is honorable not only in the sight of the Lord but also in the sight of men.
22 And we sent with them 1our brother, whom we have proved to be 2diligent in many things many times, yet now much more 2diligent because of the great aconfidence he has toward you.
23 Whether concerning aTitus, he is my bpartner and cfellow worker for you; or our brothers, they are 1apostles of the churches, they are Christ's glory.
24 Show therefore to them, in the face of the churches, the proof of your love and of our aboasting on your behalf.
