Pristine Grace

1 Thess 2:6-8, (KJV)
6  Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ.
7  But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children:
8  So being affectionately desirous of you, we were willing to have imparted unto you, not the gospel of God only, but also our own souls, because ye were dear unto us.

1 Thess 2:6-8, (MKJV)
6  Nor did we seek glory from men, neither from you nor from others, being able to be so with heaviness, as apostles of Christ.
7  But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse warmly cherishes her children.
8  So affectionately longing for you, we were willing to have imparted to you, not only the gospel of God, but also our own souls, because you have become beloved to us.

1 Thess 2:6-8, (NASB)
6  nor did we seek glory from men, either from you or from others, even though as apostles of Christ we might have asserted our authority.
7  But we proved to be gentle among you, as a nursing mother tenderly cares for her own children.
8  Having so fond an affection for you, we were well-pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God but also our own lives, because you had become very dear to us.

1 Thess 2:6-8, (LITV)
6  nor seeking glory from men, neither from you, nor from others, being able to be in authority, as apostles of Christ.
7  But we were gentle in your midst, even as a nurse should warmly cherish her children.
8  So yearning over you, we were well-pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God, but also our own souls, because you have become beloved to us.
