What does 2 Timothy 3:11 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Timothy 3:11

Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch,
&c.] In Pisidia; where the Jews that contradicted and blasphemed his doctrine, and envied his success, stirred up the chief of the city, both men and women, against him, and Barnabas; who persecuted them and expelled them out, of their coasts, ( Acts 13:45 Acts 13:50 ) and also at Iconium; where both Jews and Gentiles made an assault upon them, to use them ill, and stone them, ( Acts 14:5 ) and likewise at Lystra; where the apostle was stoned, and drawn out of the city, and left for dead, ( Acts 14:19 ) . And these instances are the rather mentioned because they were done in those parts, where Timothy had lived, ( Acts 16:1 ) and so knew the truth of these things, not only from the apostle's mouth, but from the testimonies of others; and perhaps he might have been a witness to some of them himself;

what persecutions I endured:
not only in the above places, but elsewhere; see a detail of them in ( 2 Corinthians 11:23-28 ) ,

but out of them all the Lord delivered me;
see ( 2 Corinthians 1:10 ) ( 2 Timothy 4:17 2 Timothy 4:18 ) , this he says to the glory of the grace and power of God, to whom he ascribes all his deliverances; and for the encouragement of Timothy, and other saints, under sufferings, who may hope and believe that the Lord will deliver them in his own time and way, ( Psalms 34:19 ) .
