24Fivetimes I received from the Jews21thirty-nine lashes.
25Threetimes I was 22beaten with rods, once I was 23stoned, threetimes I was shipwrecked, a night and a day I have spent in the deep.
I have been on frequentjourneys, 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, dangersamong27falsebrethren ;
I have been in 28labor and hardship, ethroughmanysleeplessnights, in 29hunger and thirst, often30withoutfood, in cold and f31exposure.
