8Now ye arefull , now ye are rich , ye have reigned as kingswithoutus:and I would to Godye did reign , thatwealso might reign withyou.9For I thinkthatGod hath set forthusa the apostleslast,as it were appointed to death:for we are made a spectacle unto the world,and to angels,and to men.10We are foolsforChrist'ssake,butye are wiseinChrist;we are weak,butye are strong;ye are honourable,butwe are despised.11Even unto this presenthourwebothhunger , andthirst , and are naked , and are buffeted , and have no certain dwellingplace ;
12Andlabour , working with our ownhands: being reviled , we bless ; being persecuted , we suffer it :
Being defamed , we intreat : we are madeas the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all thingsunto this day.14
I writenot these things to shameyou,butasmybelovedsons I warn you.
15Forthough ye have ten thousandinstructorsinChrist,yet have ye notmanyfathers:forinChristJesusI have begottenyouthrough the gospel.16Wherefore I beseechyou, be yefollowers of me.17Forthiscause have I sent unto youTimotheus,whoismybelovedson,andfaithfulin the Lord,who shall bringyou into remembrance of mywayswhich be inChrist,as I teach every whereineverychurch.18Nowsome are puffed up , as thoughIwouldnotcometoyou.
