Galatians 4:18

good to be zealously affected—rather, to correspond to "zealously court" in Galatians 4:18, "to be zealously courted." I do not find fault with them for zealously courting you, nor with you for being zealously courted: provided it be "in a good cause" (translate so), "it is a good thing" (I Corinthians 9:20-23). My reason for saying the "not well" (Galatians 4:17; the Greek is the same as that for "good," and "in a good cause," in Galatians 4:28), is that their zealous courting of you is not in a good cause. The older interpreters, however, support English Version (compare Galatians 1:14).

always—Translate and arrange the words thus, "At all times, and not only when I am present with you." I do not desire that I exclusively should have the privilege of zealously courting you. Others may do so in my absence with my full approval, if only it be in a good cause, and if Christ be faithfully preached (Philippians 1:15-18).
