First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is proclaimed throughout the whole world.
For God is my witness, whom I serve in my spirit in the gospel of his Son, how unceasingly I make mention of you, always in my prayers
cease not to give thanks for you, making mention (of you) in my prayers;
I thank my God upon all my remembrance of you,
always in every supplication of mine on behalf of you all making my supplication with joy,
We give thanks to God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,
We are bound to give thanks to God always to you, brethren, even as it is meet, for that your faith growth exceedingly, and the love of each one of you all toward one another aboundeth;
To which end we also pray always for you, that our God may count you worthy of your calling, and fulfil every desire of goodness and (every) work of faith, with power;
