Besides everything else, I have a daily burden because of my anxiety about all the churches. Who is weak without me being weak, too? Who is caused to stumble without me becoming indignant? If I must boast, I will boast about the things that show how weak I am. The God and Father of the Lord Jesus, who is blessed forever, knows that I am not lying. In Damascus, the governor under King Aretas put guards around the city of Damascus to catch me, but I was let down in a basket through an opening in the wall and escaped from him.
