Second Corinthians 11

11:1 I earnestly wish ye could bear with me a little in [my]
 folly: and indeed bear with me.
11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have
 espoused you to one husband, that I may present [you as] a
 chaste virgin to Christ.
11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve
 through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from
 the simplicity that is in Christ.
11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have
 not preached, or [if] ye receive another spirit, which ye have
 not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye
 might well bear with [him].
11:5 For I suppose I was not a whit behind the very greatest
11:6 But though [I am] rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but
 we have been thoroughly made manifest among you in all things.
11:7 Have I committed an offense in abasing myself that ye might
 be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God
 without reward?
11:8 I robbed other churches, taking wages [of them], to do you
11:9 And when I was present with you, and wanted, I was
 chargeable to no man: for that which was lacking to me the
 brethren who came from Macedonia supplied: and in all [things]
 I have kept myself from being burdensome to you, and [so] will
 I keep [myself].
11:10 As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of
 this boasting in the regions of Achaia.
11:11 Why? because I love you not? God knoweth.
11:12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion
 from them who desire occasion; that in what they glory, they
 may be found even as we.
11:13 For such [are] false apostles, deceitful workers,
 transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
11:14 And no wonder; for Satan himself is transformed into an
 angel of light.
11:15 Therefore [it is] no great thing if his ministers also are
 transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall
 be according to their works.
11:16 I say again, Let no man think me a fool; if otherwise, yet
 as a fool receive me, that I may boast myself a little.
11:17 That which I speak, I speak [it] not according to the
 Lord, but as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting.
11:18 Seeing that many glory after the flesh, I will glory also.
11:19 For ye suffer fools gladly, seeing ye [yourselves] are
11:20 For ye suffer, if a man bringeth you into bondage, if a
 man devoureth [you], if a man taketh [from you], if a man
 exalteth himself, if a man smiteth you on the face.
11:21 I speak as concerning reproach, as though we had been
 weak. But in whatever respect any is bold, (I speak foolishly)
 I am bold also.
11:22 Are they Hebrews? so [am] I. Are they Israelites? so [am]
 I. Are they the offspring of Abraham? so [am] I.
11:23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I [am]
 more; in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in
 prisons more frequent, in deaths often.
11:24 From the Jews five times I received forty [stripes] save
11:25 Thrice was I beaten with rods, once I was stoned, thrice I
 suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;
11:26 [In] journeyings often, [in] perils of waters, [in] perils
 of robbers, [in] perils by [my own] countrymen, [in] perils by
 the heathen, [in] perils in the city, [in] perils in the
 wilderness, [in] perils in the sea, [in] perils among false
11:27 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in
 hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.
11:28 Besides those things that are without, that which cometh
 upon me daily, the care of all the churches.
11:29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is made to fall into
 sin, and I burn not?
11:30 If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which
 concern my infirmities.
11:31 The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is
 blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.
11:32 In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king kept the
 city of the Damascenes with a garrison, desirous to apprehend
11:33 And through a window in a basket I was let down by the
 wall, and escaped his hands.
