2 Corinthians 11:19-29 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
19 For you, 1being so wise, tolerate the foolish gladly. 20 For you tolerate it if anyone 2enslaves you, anyone 3devours you, anyone 4takes advantage of you, anyone 5exalts himself, anyone 6hits you in the face. 21 To my 7shame I must say that we have been 8weak by comparison. But in whatever respect anyone else 9is bold -I 10speak in foolishness -I am just as bold myself. 22 Are they 11Hebrews ? 12So am I. Are they 13Israelites ? 14So am I. Are they a15descendants of Abraham ? 16So am I. 23 Are they 17servants of Christ ?-I speak as if insane -I more so ; in b18far more labors, in c19far more imprisonments, d20beaten times without number, often in 21danger of death. 24 Five times I received from the Jews 22thirty-nine lashes. 25 Three times I was 23beaten with rods, once I was 24stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, a night and a day I have spent in the deep. 26 I have been on frequent journeys, in dangers from rivers, dangers from robbers, dangers from my 25countrymen, dangers from the 26Gentiles, dangers in the 27city, dangers in the wilderness, dangers on the sea, dangers among 28false brethren ; 27 I have been in 29labor and hardship, ethrough many sleepless nights, in 30hunger and thirst, often 31without food, in cold and f32exposure. 28 Apart from such gexternal things, there is the daily pressure on me of concern for 33all the churches. 29 Who is 34weak without my being weak ? Who is hled into sin iwithout my intense concern ?
