This word, cherish θάλπω, is used only two times; in Ephesus 5:29 and 1 Thessalonians 2:7. But we proved to be gentle among you, as a nursing mother tenderly cares for her own children. Having so fond an affection for you, we were well-pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God but also our own lives, because you had become very dear to us.
