21 To my 1shame I must say that we have been 2weak by comparison. But in whatever * respect anyone else 3is bold -I 4speak in foolishness -I am just as bold myself.
22 Are they 5Hebrews? 6So am I. Are they 7Israelites? 8So am I. Are they 9descendants of Abraham? 10So am I.
24 Five times I received from the Jews 16thirty-nine * * lashes.
25 Three times I was 17beaten with rods, once I was 18stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, a night and a day I have spent in the deep.
26 I have been on frequent journeys, in dangers from rivers, dangers from robbers, dangers from my 19countrymen, dangers from the 20Gentiles, dangers in the 21city, dangers in the wilderness, dangers on the sea, dangers among 22false brethren;
28 Apart from such external things, there is the daily * pressure on me of concern for 27all the churches.
29 Who is 28weak without * my being weak? Who is led into sin without * my intense concern?
