Paul Defends His Apostleship

1 Would that you could put up with a little "folly" from me! Nay, do bear with me. 2 I have a divine jealousy on your behalf; for I betrothed you to one only husband, even to Christ, that I might present you to him, a chaste virgin. 3 But I fear lest, just as the serpent beguiled Eve in his craftiness, so your minds should be seduced from your single-mindedness and purity toward Christ.
