WouldG3785 to God you could bearG430 with me a littleG3397 in my folly:G877 and indeedG235 bearG430 with me.
For I am jealousG2206 over you with godlyG2596 G2316 jealousy:G2205 for I have espousedG718 you to oneG1520 husband,G435 that I may presentG3936 you as a chasteG53 virginG3933 to Christ.G5547
But I fear,G5399 lestG3381 by anyG3381 means,G4458 as the serpentG3789 beguiledG1818 EveG2096 throughG1722 his subtlety,G3834 soG3779 yourG5216 mindsG3540 should be corruptedG5351 from the simplicityG572 that is in Christ.G5547
For ifG1487 he that comesG2064 preachesG2784 anotherG243 Jesus,G2424 whomG3739 we have not preached,G2784 orG2228 if you receiveG2983 anotherG2087 spirit,G4151 whichG3739 you have not received,G2983 orG2228 anotherG2087 gospel,G2098 which you have not accepted,G1209 you might wellG2573 bearG430 with him.
For I supposeG3049 I was not a whitG3367 behindG5302 the veryG5228 most chiefG5228 G3029 apostles.G652
But thoughG1499 I be rudeG2399 in speech,G3056 yetG235 not in knowledge;G1108 but we have been thoroughlyG1722 G3956 madeG5319 manifestG5319 amongG1519 you in allG3956 things.
Have I committedG4160 an offenseG266 in abasingG5013 myselfG1683 that you might be exalted,G5312 becauseG3754 I have preachedG2097 to you the gospelG2098 of GodG2316 freely?G1432
I robbedG4813 otherG243 churches,G1577 takingG2983 wagesG3800 of them, to do you service.G1248
And when I was presentG3918 with you, and wanted,G5302 I was chargeableG2655 to noG3762 man:G3762 for that which was lackingG5303 to me the brothersG80 which cameG2064 from MacedoniaG3109 supplied:G4322 and in allG3956 things I have keptG5083 myselfG1683 from being burdensomeG4 to you, and so will I keepG5083 myself.G1683
As the truthG225 of ChristG5547 is in me, noG3756 G3762 man shall stopG5420 me of thisG3778 boastingG2746 in the regionsG2824 of Achaia.G882
Why?G1302 becauseG3754 I loveG25 you not? GodG2316 knows.G1492
But whatG3739 I do,G4160 that I will do,G4160 that I may cutG1581 offG1581 occasionG874 from them which desireG2309 occasion;G874 that whereinG1722 G3757 they glory,G2744 they may be foundG2147 evenG2532 as we.
For suchG5108 are falseG5570 apostles,G5570 deceitfulG1386 workers,G2040 transformingG3345 themselves intoG1519 the apostlesG652 of Christ.G5547
And noG3762 marvel;G2298 for SatanG4567 himselfG846 is transformedG3345 intoG1519 an angelG32 of light.G5457
ThereforeG3767 it is noG3762 greatG3173 thing ifG1499 his ministersG1249 alsoG2532 be transformedG3345 as the ministersG1249 of righteousness;G1343 whoseG3739 endG5056 shall be accordingG2596 to their works.G2041
I sayG3004 again,G3825 Let noG3367 manG5100 thinkG1380 me a fool;G878 ifG1490 otherwise,G1490 yetG2579 as a foolG878 receiveG1209 me, that I may boastG2744 myself a little.G3397
That whichG3739 I speak,G2980 I speakG2980 it not afterG2596 the Lord,G2962 but as it were foolishly,G1722 G877 in thisG5026 confidenceG5287 of boasting.G2746
SeeingG1893 that manyG4183 gloryG2744 afterG2596 the flesh,G4561 I will gloryG2744 also.G2504
For you sufferG430 foolsG878 gladly,G2234 seeing you yourselves are wise.G5429
For you suffer,G430 ifG1487 a manG5100 bringG2615 you into bondage,G2615 ifG1487 a manG5100 devourG2719 you, ifG1487 a manG5100 takeG2983 of you, ifG1487 a manG5100 exaltG1869 himself, ifG1487 a manG5100 smiteG1194 you onG1519 the face.G4383
I speakG3004 as concerningG2596 reproach,G819 as thoughG3754 we had been weak.G770 However, when everG1722 G3739 G302 anyG5100 is bold,G5111 (I speakG3004 foolishly,G1722 G877) I am bold also.G5111 G2504
Are they Hebrews?G1445 soG2504 am I. Are they Israelites?G2475 soG2504 am I. Are they the seedG4690 of Abraham?G11 soG2504 am I.
Are they ministersG1249 of Christ?G5547 (I speakG2980 as a fool)G3912 I am more;G5228 in laborsG2873 moreG4056 abundant,G4056 in stripesG4127 aboveG5234 measure,G5234 in prisonsG5438 moreG4056 frequent,G4056 in deathsG2288 oft.G4178
Of the JewsG2453 fiveG3999 timesG3999 receivedG2983 I fortyG5062 stripes saveG3844 one.G3391
ThriceG5151 was I beatenG4463 with rods,G4463 onceG530 was I stoned,G3034 thriceG5151 I suffered shipwreck,G3489 a nightG3574 and a dayG3574 I have beenG4160 in the deep;G1037
In journeysG3597 often,G3740 in perilsG2794 of waters,G4215 in perilsG2794 of robbers,G3027 in perilsG2794 by my own countrymen,G1085 in perilsG2794 by the heathen,G1484 in perilsG2794 in the city,G4172 in perilsG2794 in the wilderness,G2047 in perilsG2794 in the sea,G2281 in perilsG2794 amongG1722 falseG5569 brothers;G5569
In wearinessG2873 and painfulness,G3449 in watchingsG70 often,G3740 in hungerG3042 and thirst,G1373 in fastingsG3521 often,G3740 in coldG5592 and nakedness.G1132
BesideG5565 thoseG3588 things that are without,G3924 that whichG3588 comesG1999 on me daily,G2596 G2250 the careG3308 of allG3956 the churches.G1577
WhoG5101 is weak,G770 and I am not weak?G770 whoG5101 is offended,G4624 and I burnG4448 not?
IfG1487 I mustG1163 needs glory,G2744 I will gloryG2744 of the things which concernG4012 myG3450 infirmities.G769
The GodG2316 and FatherG3962 of our LordG2962 JesusG2424 Christ,G5547 whichG3588 is blessedG2128 for ever more,G1519 G165 knowsG1492 that I lieG5574 not.
In DamascusG1154 the governorG1481 under AretasG702 the kingG935 keptG5432 the cityG4172 of the DamascenesG1153 with a garrison,G5432 desirousG2309 to apprehendG4084 me:
And throughG1223 a windowG2376 in a basketG4553 was I letG5465 downG5465 by the wall,G5038 and escapedG1628 his hands.G5495
