Paul’s Change of Plans
12 For our boast is this, uthe testimony of our conscience, that we behaved in the world with simplicity1 and vgodly sincerity, wnot by earthly wisdom but by the grace of God, and supremely so toward you.
Guard the Deposit Entrusted to You
5 Far be it from me to say that you are right;
till I die I will not put away my wintegrity from me.
6 I xhold fast my righteousness and will not let it go;
my heart does not yreproach me for any of my days.
2 But we have renounced zdisgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice1 cunning or ato tamper with God’s word, but bby the open statement of the truth cwe would commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God.
The Ministry of Reconciliation
18 bPray for us, for we are sure that we have a clear conscience, desiring to act honorably in all things.
