Paul Boasts In His Sufferings

15 therefore it is not strange if his agents are so disguised as to appear like ministers of the gospel; but their end shall be answerable to their actions. 16 I say it again, let no man think me vain; but if they do, yet as such, bear with me, that I too may applaud my self a little. 17 what I say, I say it not as an apostle, but as it were to indulge my vanity in this matter of boasting.
