2 Corinthians 12:14

Overview - 2 Corinthians 12
For commending of his apostleship, though he might glory of his wonderful revelations,
yet he rather chooses to glory of his infirmities;
11 blaming them for forcing him to this vain boasting.
14 He promises to come to them again; but yet altogether in the affection of a father;
20 although he fears he shall to his grief find many offenders, and public disorders there.
