2 Corinthians 11:20-30 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
20 For you tolerate it if anyone 1enslaves you, anyone 2devours you, anyone 3takes advantage of you, anyone 4exalts himself, anyone 5hits you in the face. 21 To my 6shame I must say that we have been 7weak by comparison. But in whatever respect anyone else 8is bold -I 9speak in foolishness -I am just as bold myself. 22 Are they 10Hebrews ? 11So am I. Are they 12Israelites ? 13So am I. Are they a14descendants of Abraham ? 15So am I. 23 Are they 16servants of Christ ?-I speak as if insane -I more so ; in b17far more labors, in c18far more imprisonments, d19beaten times without number, often in 20danger of death. 24 Five times I received from the Jews 21thirty-nine lashes. 25 Three times I was 22beaten with rods, once I was 23stoned, 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 24countrymen, dangers from the 25Gentiles, dangers in the 26city, dangers in the wilderness, dangers on the sea, dangers among 27false brethren ; 27 I have been in 28labor and hardship, ethrough many sleepless nights, in 29hunger and thirst, often 30without food, in cold and f31exposure. 28 Apart from such gexternal things, there is the daily pressure on me of concern for 32all the churches. 29 Who is 33weak without my being weak ? Who is hled into sin iwithout my intense concern ? 30 If I have to boast, I will boast of what pertains to my 34weakness.
