1 Thessalonians 2:6

English Standard Version

6 Nor did we seek glory from people, whether from you or from others, though we could have made demands as apostles of Christ. (Joh 5:41; 1Co 9:1; 1Co 9:4; 2Co 4:5; 2Co 11:9; 1Th 2:9; 2Th 3:9; Phm 1:8)

New International Version

6 We were not looking for praise from people, not from you or anyone else, even though as apostles of Christ we could have asserted our authority.

New International Reader’s Version

6 We were not expecting people to praise us. We were not looking for praise from you or anyone else. Yet as Christ’s apostles, we could have used our authority over you.

King James Version

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