The King James Version Bible

1 Thessalonians 2:3-6

  1. For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile:

  2. But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.

  3. For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; God is witness:

  4. Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ.
