Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:1 - O that ye were bearing with me a little of the folly, but ye also do bear with me:
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:2 - for I am zealous for you with zeal of God, for I did betroth you to one husband, a pure virgin, to present to Christ,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:3 - and I fear, lest, as the serpent did beguile Eve in his subtilty, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in the Christ;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:4 - for if, indeed, he who is coming doth preach another Jesus whom we did not preach, or another Spirit ye receive which ye did not receive, or other good news which ye did not accept -- well were ye bearing it,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:5 - for I reckon that I have been nothing behind the very chiefest apostles,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:6 - and even if unlearned in word -- yet not in knowledge, but in every thing we were made manifest in all things to you.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:7 - The sin did I do -- myself humbling that ye might be exalted, because freely the good news of God I did proclaim to you?
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:8 - other assemblies I did rob, having taken wages, for your ministration;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:9 - and being present with you, and having been in want, I was chargeable to no one, for my lack did the brethren supply -- having come from Macedonia -- and in everything burdenless to you I did keep myself, and will keep.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:10 - The truth of Christ is in me, because this boasting shall not be stopped in regard to me in the regions of Achaia;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:11 - wherefore? because I do not love you? God hath known!
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:12 - and what I do, I also will do, that I may cut off the occasion of those wishing an occasion, that in that which they boast they may be found according as we also;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:13 - for those such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:14 - and no wonder -- for even the Adversary doth transform himself into a messenger of light;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:15 - no great thing, then, if also his ministrants do transform themselves as ministrants of righteousness -- whose end shall be according to their works.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:16 - Again I say, may no one think me to be a fool; and if otherwise, even as a fool receive me, that I also a little may boast.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:17 - That which I speak, I speak not according to the Lord, but as in foolishness, in this the confidence of boasting;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:18 - since many boast according to the flesh, I also will boast:
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:19 - for gladly do ye bear with the fools -- being wise,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:20 - for ye bear, if any one is bringing you under bondage, if any one doth devour, if any one doth take away, if any one doth exalt himself, if any one on the face doth smite you;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:21 - in reference to dishonour I speak, how that we were weak, and in whatever any one is bold -- in foolishness I say it -- I also am bold.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:22 - Hebrews are they? I also! Israelites are they? I also! seed of Abraham are they? I also!
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:23 - ministrants of Christ are they? -- as beside myself I speak -- I more; in labours more abundantly, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths many times;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:24 - from Jews five times forty stripes save one I did receive;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:25 - thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice was I shipwrecked, a night and a day in the deep I have passed;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:26 - journeyings many times, perils of rivers, perils of robbers, perils from kindred, perils from nations, perils in city, perils in wilderness, perils in sea, perils among false brethren;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:27 - in laboriousness and painfulness, in watchings many times, in hunger and thirst, in fastings many times, in cold and nakedness;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:28 - apart from the things without -- the crowding upon me that is daily -- the care of all the assemblies.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:29 - Who is infirm, and I am not infirm? who is stumbled, and I am not fired;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:30 - if to boast it behoveth me, of the things of my infirmity I will boast;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:31 - the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ -- who is blessed to the ages -- hath known that I do not lie! --
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:32 - In Damascus the ethnarch of Aretas the king was watching the city of the Damascenes, wishing to seize me,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 11:33 - and through a window in a rope basket I was let down, through the wall, and fled out of his hands.
