“Wherefore shew ye to them, and before the Churches, the proofe of your loue, & of our boasting on your behalfe.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
8:24 Before the churches - Present by their messengers.
2Co 8:24 Wherefore shew ye to them, and before the churches. Since these are representative men, delegates of the churches, and of Christ, receive them cordially. Give proof of your love, and show that when we have boasted of your excellencies that our boasting was not empty. An ill reputation would not only reflect upon the churches, but upon Paul himself.
