Galatians 4:19

My little children— (I Timothy 1:18; II Timothy 2:1; I John 2:1). My relation to you is not merely that of one zealously courting you (Galatians 4:17-18), but that of a father to his children (I Corinthians 4:15).

I travail in birth—that is, like a mother in pain till the birth of her child.

again—a second time. The former time was when I was "present with you" (Galatians 4:18; compare Note, see on Galatians 4:13).

Christ be formed in you—that you may live nothing but Christ, and think nothing but Christ (Galatians 2:20), and glory in nothing but Him, and His death, resurrection, and righteousness (Philippians 3:8-10; Colossians 1:27).
