in the will of God to come to you.
1:11For I desire to see you, to part
somewhat to you of spiritual grace[that I
give to you something of spiritual grace], that
ye be confirmed,

in you, by[that] faith that is both yours
and mine together.

impart unto you some spiritual gift, to
the end ye may be established;

together with you by the mutual faith
both of you and me.
1:13Now I would not have you
ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I
purposed to come unto you, (but was let
hitherto,) that I might have some fruit
among you also, even as among other

and to the Barbarians; both to the wise,
and to the unwise.
