16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

17 They are jealous over you [a]amiss: yea, they would exclude you, [b]that ye should altogether love them.

18 But it is a good thing to love [c]earnestly always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you,

Galatians 4:16-18 New International Version (NIV)

16 Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?

17 Those people are zealous to win you over, but for no good. What they want is to alienate you from us, so that you may have zeal for them. 18 It is fine to be zealous, provided the purpose is good, and to be so always, not just when I am with you.
