I have applied all these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, brothers,a that you may learn by us not to go beyond what is written, that none of you may 1be puffed up in favor of one against another.
For who sees anything different in you? 2What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it?
Already you have all you want! Already you have become rich! Without us you have become kings! And would that you did reign, so that we might share the rule with you!
For I think that God has exhibited us apostles as last of all, 3like men sentenced to death, because we 4have become a spectacle to the world, to angels, and to men.
105We are fools for Christ's sake, but 6you are wise in Christ. 7We are weak, but you are strong. You are held in honor, but we in disrepute.
To the present hour 8we hunger and thirst, we are poorly dressed and 9buffeted and 10homeless,
and we 11labor, working with our own hands. 12When reviled, we bless; 13when persecuted, we endure;
when slandered, we entreat. 14We have become, and are still, like the scum of the world, 15the refuse of all things.
