13 my spirit iwas not at rest because I did not find my brother Titus there. So I took leave of them and went on to Macedonia.
6 But sGod, who comforts the downcast, tcomforted us by the coming of Titus,
13 Therefore bwe are comforted.
And besides our own comfort, we rejoiced still more at the joy of Titus, because his spirit chas been refreshed by you all.
14 For dwhatever boasts I made to him about you, I was not put to shame. But just as everything we said to you ewas true, so also our boasting before Titus has proved true.
6 Accordingly, nwe urged Titus that as he had started, so he should complete among you othis act of grace.
Commendation of Titus
16 But zthanks be to God, awho put into the heart of Titus the same earnest care I have for you.
23 As for Titus, he is jmy partner and fellow worker for your benefit. And as for our brothers, they are messengers of the churches, the glory of Christ.
18 dI urged Titus to go, and sent ethe brother with him. Did Titus take advantage of you? Did we not act in the same spirit? Did we not take the same steps?
