Paul Boasts In His Sufferings

19 For you readily and gladly bear with the foolish, since you are so smart and wise yourselves! 20 For you endure it if a man assumes control of your souls and makes slaves of you, or devours [your substance, spends your money] and preys upon you, or deceives and takes advantage of you, or is arrogant and puts on airs, or strikes you in the face. 21 To my discredit, I must say, we have shown ourselves too weak [for you to show such tolerance of us and for us to do strong, courageous things like that to you]! But in whatever any person is bold and dares [to boast] -- "mind you, I am speaking in this foolish (witless) way -- "I also am bold and dare [to boast].
