Wherefore if I wrote in such a manner to you, it was not merely on his account who had done the wrong, nor for his sake who had been injured; but that our care for you in the sight of God might be manifested among you.


For I am afraid least when I come, I should not find you such as I could wish, and I should be found to you such as ye would not: least there should be contentions, emulations, animosities, strifes, thwartings, whisperings, swellings, tumults: and least,

so that I am afraid for you, least I have indeed bestowed upon you labour in vain.

From the Jews I have five times received forty stripes save one. Thrice I have been beaten with rods, once I was stoned, thrice I have been shipwrecked, and was a night and a day on the deep: in journies often, in perils from rivers, in perils from robbers, in perils from my own nation, in perils from the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the desert, in perils on the sea, in perils among false brethren: read more.
in labor and toil, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness: and beside these outward troubles, that which besets me daily, the care of all the churches. Who is infirm, and I am not infirm also? who is offended, and I am not inflamed? If I must boast, I will boast of the things which relate to my infirmity. And the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is blessed for ever, knoweth that I lye not. In Damascus the governor under king Aretas, placed guards about the city to seize me: and I was let down by the wall through a window in a basket, and so escaped his hands.
