2 Corinthians 11:23-33 (Weymouth New Testament)

View In My Bible
23 Are they servants of Christ? (I speak as if I were out of my mind.) Much more am I His servant; serving Him more thoroughly than they by my labours, and more thoroughly also by my imprisonments, by excessively cruel floggings, and with risk of life many a time. 24 From the Jews I five times have received forty lashes all but one. 25 Three times I have been beaten with Roman rods, once I have been stoned, three times I have been shipwrecked, once for full four and twenty hours I was floating on the open sea. 26 I have served Him by frequent travelling, amid dangers in crossing rivers, dangers from robbers; dangers from my own countrymen, dangers from the Gentiles; dangers in the city, dangers in the Desert, dangers by sea, dangers from spies in our midst; 27 with labour and toil, with many a sleepless night, in hunger and thirst, in frequent fastings, in cold, and with insufficient clothing. 28 And besides other things, which I pass over, there is that which presses on me daily--my anxiety for all the Churches. 29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is led astray into sin, and I am not aflame with indignation? 30 If boast I must, it shall be of things which display my weakness. 31 The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ--He who is blessed throughout the Ages--knows that I am speaking the truth. 32 In Damascus the governor under King Aretas kept guards at the gates of the city in order to apprehend me, 33 but through an opening in the wall I was let down in a basket, and so escaped his hands.
