Moreover I call God for a record upon my soul, that to spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth.
For if I make you sorry , who is he then that maketh me glad , but the same which is made sorry by me?
To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ;
Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence am base among you, but being absent am bold toward you:
Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool ) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.
Who is weak , and I am not weak ? who is offended , and I burn not?
I am become a fool in glorying ; ye have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest apostles , though I be nothing.
For what is it wherein ye were inferior to other churches, except it be that I myself was not burdensome to you? forgive me this wrong.
And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you ; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved .
But be it so , I did not burden you: nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with guile.
