2 Corinthians 2:1; 2 Corinthians 11:7; 2 Corinthians 11:9; 2 Corinthians 12:5
But I determined this with myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness.
Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted , because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?
And when I was present with you, and wanted , I was chargeable to no man: for that which was lacking to me the brethren which came from Macedonia supplied : and in all things I have kept myself from being burdensome unto you, and so will I keep myself.
Of such an one will I glory : yet of myself I will not glory , but in mine infirmities.
