For we 1do not preachourselves but ChristJesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servantsafor Jesus'sake.
For God, who said, "2Light shall shine out of darkness," is the One who has 3shone in our hearts to give the 4Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
But we havethistreasure in 5earthenvessels, so that the surpassinggreatness of 6the power will be of God and not from ourselves;
we are 7afflicted in everyway, but not 8crushed; 9perplexed, but not despairing;
910persecuted, but not 11forsaken; 12struckdown, but not destroyed;
1013alwayscarryingabout in the body the dying of Jesus, so that 14the life of Jesusalso may be manifested in our body.
