5 G2532 And G3756 this they did, not G2531 as G1679 [G5656] we expected G235 , but G4412 first G1325 [G5656] gave G1438 their own selves G2962 to the Lord G2532 , and G2254 to us G1223 by G2307 the will G2316 of God.
6 G1519 So G2248 that we G3870 [G5658] urged G5103 Titus G2443 , that G2531 as G4278 [G5662] he had begun G3779 , so G2005 0 he would G2532 also G2005 [G5661] finish G1519 in G5209 you G5026 the same G5485 grace G2532 also.
7 G235 Therefore G5618 , as G4052 [G5719] ye abound G1722 in G3956 every G4102 thing, in faith G2532 , and G3056 utterance G2532 , and G1108 knowledge G2532 , and G3956 in all G4710 diligence G2532 , and G5216 in your G26 G1537 love G1722 to G2254 us G2443 , see that G4052 [G5725] ye abound G1722 in G5026 this G5485 grace G2532 also.
8 G3004 [G5719] I speak G3756 not G2596 by G2003 commandment G235 , but G1223 by occasion G4710 of the diligence G2087 of others G2532 , and G1381 [G5723] to prove G1103 the genuineness G5212 of your G26 love.
9 G1063 For G1097 [G5719] ye know G5485 the grace G2257 of our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G3754 , that G5607 [G5752] , though he was G4145 rich G1223 0 , yet for G5209 your G1223 sakes G4433 [G5656] he became poor G2443 , that G5210 ye G1565 through his G4432 poverty G4147 [G5661] might be rich.
10 G2532 And G1722 in G5129 this G1325 [G5719] I give G1106 my advice G1063 : for G5124 this G4851 [G5719] is expedient G5213 for you G3748 , who G4278 [G5662] have begun before G3756 , not G3440 only G4160 [G5658] to do G235 , but G2532 also G2309 [G5721] to be willing G4070 a year G575 ago.
