To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law), so as to win those not having the law.
2 Corinthians 2:13
I still had no peace of mind, because I did not find my brother Titus there. So I said goodbye to them and went on to Macedonia.
