A Thorn in the Flesh

7 Because of the surpassing greatness of the 1revelations, for this reason, to keep me from exalting myself, there was given me a 2thorn in the flesh, a 3messenger of Satan to atorment me-to keep me from exalting myself! 8 Concerning this I implored the Lord 4three times that it might leave me. 9 And He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for 5power is perfected in weakness." Most gladly, therefore, I will rather 6boast babout my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. 10 Therefore 7I am well content with weaknesses, with cinsults, with 8distresses, with 9persecutions, with 10difficulties, 11for Christ's sake; for 12when I am weak, then I am strong. 11 I have become 13foolish; you yourselves compelled me. Actually I should have been commended by you, for 14in no respect was I inferior to the dmost eminent apostles, even though 15I am a nobody.
