9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves , but in God which raiseth the dead:
17 When I therefore was thus minded , did I use lightness? or the things that I purpose , do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be yea yea, and nay nay?
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
3 Yet have I sent the brethren, lest our boasting of you should be in vain in this behalf; that, as I said , ye may be ready :
7 Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates.
9 For we are glad , when we are weak , and ye are strong: and this also we wish , even your perfection.
