Actually, (A)it is in the sight of God that we have been speaking in Christ; and (B)all for your upbuilding, (C)beloved. 20 For I am afraid that perhaps (D)when I come I may find you to be not what I wish and may be found by you to be not what you wish; that perhaps there will be (E)strife, jealousy, (F)angry tempers, (G)disputes, (H)slanders, (I)gossip, (J)arrogance, (K)disturbances; 21 I am afraid that when I come again my God may humiliate me before you, and I may mourn over many of those who have (L)sinned in the past and not repented of the (M)impurity, [b]immorality and sensuality which they have practiced.
