BUT I wish you to know, my brethren, that for those who are asleep you should not have sorrow, as the rest of men, who have no hope.
For I consider that the sufferings of this time are not equal to that glory which is to be revealed in us.
that we may be able to console those who are in all afflictions by that consolation by which we are consoled of Aloha.
I will not leave you orphans; for I will come to you a little after.
But patience is needed by you, that ye may do the will of Aloha, and receive the promise.
But these things which were my gain, I have reckoned loss for the Meshiha;
and I also (still) reckon them all loss, for the grandeur of the knowledge of Jeshu Meshiha my Lord; for whose sake I have lost all things, and have reckoned as dung, that the Meshiha I may gain,
that the proof of your faith may be seen, which is more precious than gold refined which is proved in fire, unto praise and unto honour and unto glory, at the revelation of Jeshu Meshiha;
