NET © Notes

tn Grk “for this reason,” which seems to look back to Paul’s behavior just described. But it may look forward to v. 13b and mean: “and here is another reason that we constantly thank God: that…”

tn Grk “God’s word of hearing from us.”

tn Paul’s focus is their attitude toward the message he preached: They received it not as a human message but a message from God.
