6Nowthesethings, brethren, I have figurativelyapplied to myself and Apollos for your sakes, so that in us you may learn not to exceed1what is written, so that noone of you will 2become aarrogant3in behalf of oneagainst the other.
For whoregards you as superior ? 4What do you have that you did not receive ? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?
You are 5alreadyfilled, you have alreadybecomerich, you have becomekingswithout us; and indeed, I wish that you had becomekingsso that we also might reign with you.
For, I think, God has exhibited us apostleslast of all, as men6condemned to death ; because we 7have become a spectacle to the world, bboth to angels and to men.
We are 8fools for Christ'ssake, but 9you are prudent in Christ ; 10we are weak, but you are strong ; you are distinguished, but we are withouthonor.
To thispresenthour we are both11hungry and thirsty, and are poorlyclothed, and are roughlytreated, and are homeless ;
and we toil, 12working with our ownhands ; when we are 13reviled, we bless ; when we are 14persecuted, we endure ;
when we are slandered, we try to cconciliate ; we have 15become as the scum of the world, the dregs of allthings, even untilnow.
