2 Corinthians 1:8; 2 Corinthians 2:11; 2 Corinthians 6:9

8 For we do not want you to be unaware, brethren, of our affliction which came to us in Asia, that we were burdened excessively , beyond our strength, so that we despaired even of life;
11 so that no advantage would be taken of us by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes.
9 as unknown yet well-known, as dying yet behold, we live; as punished yet not put to death,
