Bible: 1 Thess 2:17-20

Forced Absence from Thessalonica

2:17 But when we were separated from you, brothers and sisters, 1  for a short time (in presence, not in affection) 2  we became all the more fervent in our great desire 3  to see you in person. 4  2:18 For we wanted to come to you (I, Paul, in fact tried again and again) 5  but Satan thwarted us. 2:19 For who is our hope or joy or crown to boast of 6  before our Lord Jesus at his coming? Is it not of course you? 2:20 For you are our glory and joy!
