8 For oGod is my witness, phow I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus.
5 sFor we never came with words of flattery, as you know, nor with a pretext for greed—tGod is witness.
10 You are witnesses, and dGod also, ehow holy and righteous and blameless was our conduct toward you believers.
God's Sovereign Choice
9 aI am speaking the truth in Christ—I am not lying; my conscience bears me witness in the Holy Spirit—
23 But qI call God to witness against me—it was rto spare you that I refrained from coming again to Corinth.
10 gAs the truth of Christ is in me, this boasting of mine hwill not be silenced in the regions of Achaia.
31 sThe God and Father of the Lord Jesus, the who is blessed forever, uknows that I am not lying.
