so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ,

ഇങ്ങനെ നിങ്ങൾ ഒരു കൃപാവരത്തിലും കുറവില്ലാത്തവരായി നമ്മുടെ കർത്താവായ യേശുക്രിസ്തുവിന്റെ പ്രത്യക്ഷത കാത്തിരിക്കുന്നു.

Luke 19:3

And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature.

യേശു എങ്ങനെയുള്ളവൻ എന്നു കാണ്മാൻ ശ്രമിച്ചു, വളർച്ചയിൽ കുറിയവൻ ആകകൊണ്ടു പുരുഷാരംനിമിത്തം കഴിഞ്ഞില്ല.

Leviticus 22:23

Either a bull or a lamb that has any limb too long or too short you may offer as a freewill offering, but for a vow it shall not be accepted.

അന്യന്റെ കയ്യിൽനിന്നു ഇങ്ങനെയുള്ള ഒന്നിനെയും വാങ്ങി നിങ്ങളുടെ ദൈവത്തിന്റെ ഭോജനമായിട്ടു അർപ്പിക്കരുതു; അവേക്കു കേടും കുറവും ഉള്ളതുകൊണ്ടു അവയാൽ നിങ്ങൾക്കു പ്രസാദം ലഭിക്കയില്ല.
