1 Oh, if ye could bear with my foolishness! But you will bear with me.
2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy; because I have espoused you to one husband, to present a chaste virgin to Christ.
3 But I fear, lest, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds should be corrupted, [evading] from the simplicity that is in Christ.
4 For if he that comes preaches 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, --to you might well bear [to that].

5 But I think that I have not a whit behind the very chiefest apostles:
6 though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge. But we know perfectly around you.
7 Did I commit a sin in humbling myself that you might be exalted, because I preached bezmezdno you the gospel of God?
8 Other Churches I robbed, receiving [of them] to do you service; and, as you do, though suffered disadvantage, no one bothered,
9 for my lack of the brethren who came from Macedonia; and all over, I tried and will try not to be a burden to you.
10 As the truth of Christ is in me [to say], that the praise And this is not taken away from me in the regions of Achaia.
eleven Why are [doing so]? Is it because I do not like you? God knows! But how do, that will do,
12 not to give a pretext desire occasion, that they boast, that turned out to be [the same], as we are.
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, the apostles of Christ.
14 And no wonder: for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light,
15 and therefore no great thing if his ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

16 Now I say that no man think me a fool; and if not, then take me, although as the unreasonable, that I skolko-- something to boast.
17 What I speak, I speak it not after the Lord, but as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting.
18 Seeing that many glory after the flesh, I will glory also.
19 For you, the people reasonable, gladly suffer the foolish:
20 you suffer when someone enslaves you, when someone eats when someone robs when one triumphs, when someone hits you in the face.
21 To my shame I say that [this] we have been weak. And if someone dares [to boast] something, then (say foolishly), I dare myself.

22 Are they Hebrews? and I. Israelis? and I. Abraham's seed? and I.
23 Ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool :) I more. I'm much more [was] in the works, is immensely in wounds, in prisons more frequent, in deaths.
24 Of the Jews five times received I forty [strikes] without one;
25 Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the depths of [the sea];
26 many times [were] in travel, in dangers from rivers, dangers from robbers, dangers from my 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 brethren;
27 in toil and hardship, through many sleepless nights, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.
28 In addition to foreign [adventure], I have a daily concourse of [people] taking care of all the churches.
29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is offended, and I burn not?
thirty If I must boast, I will boast of my weakness.
31 God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is blessed forever, knows that I lie not.
32 In Damascus the governor under King Aretas guarded the city of Damascus to catch me;
33 (11-33) and a basket was I let down the window on the wall, and escaped his hands.
