“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.”
King James Version (KJV)
1Th 2:4 So we speak. God had given them the gospel as a trust. They were "stewards of the mysteries of God" (1Co 4:1). They spoke as those faithful to a trust, seeking to please God instead of men.
