one Oh, if you were somewhat condescending to my foolishness! But you condescend to me.
2 For I am jealous of you with the jealousy of God; because I betrothed you to one husband to present you as a pure virgin to Christ.
3 But I’m afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve with his cunning, so your minds will not be damaged, [evading] simplicity in Christ.
four For if someone, having come, began to preach another Jesus, whom we did not preach, or if you received another Spirit that you did not receive, or another evangelism that you did not accept, then you would be very condescending [to that].

5 But I think that I have nothing against the higher Apostles:
6 although I am ignorant of the word, but not of knowledge. However, we are completely known to you in everything.
7 Have I sinned by humiliating myself to exalt you because I preached the gospel of God unto you?
8 I incurred costs for other churches by receiving [from them] content to serve you; and being with you, although he was lacking, I didn’t bother anyone,
9 for the brethren who came from Macedonia made up for my defect; and in everything I tried and will try not to be a burden to you.
10 According to the truth of Christ in me [I will say] that this praise will not be taken away from me in the countries of Achaia.
eleven Why [do this]? Is it because I do not love you? God knows! But as I do, I will do so
12 so as not to give a reason to those seeking a reason, so that they, than boast about, were [the same] as we are.
13 For such false apostles, crafty workers, take the form of the Apostles of Christ.
fourteen And no wonder: because Satan himself takes the form of an angel of light,
fifteen and therefore it is not a great thing, if his servants also take the form of servants of truth; but their end shall be according to their works.

16 I’ll also say: not almost anyone is unreasonable to me; and if not, then accept me, although it’s unreasonable to boast about me anyhow.
17 What I say, I will not say in the Lord, but as if in foolishness with such courage to praise.
eighteen As many boast in the flesh, then I will boast.
19 For you reasonable people willingly endure the foolish:
twenty you endure when someone enslaves you, when someone eats, when someone robes, when someone extols, when someone hits you in the face.
21 To shame, I say that [on this] we lacked strength. And if someone dares [to boast] with something, then (I will say by unreasonableness) I also dare.

22 Are they Jews? and I. Israelis? and I. Seed of Abraham? and I.
23 Christ's ministers? (in madness I say :) I more. I was much more [in] labor, immeasurably in wounds, more in dungeons and many times at death.
24 Five times from the Jews was given to me forty [punches] without one;
25 three times they beat me with sticks, once they beat me with stones, three times I suffered a shipwreck, I spent the night and day in the depths of [the sea];
26 many times [he was] in travels, in dangers on rivers, in dangers from robbers, in dangers from fellow tribesmen, in dangers from pagans, in dangers in the city, in dangers in the desert, in dangers at sea, in dangers between false brothers,
27 in labor and exhaustion, often in vigil, in hunger and thirst, often in fasting, in cold and in nakedness.
28 In addition to outsiders [adventures], I have a daily gathering [of people], taking care of all the churches.
29th Who is exhausted, with whom would I not be exhausted? Who is seduced, for whom I would not ignite?
thirty If I should boast, I will boast of my weakness.
31 God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, blessed forever, knows that I am not lying.
32 In Damascus, the regional ruler of King Aretha guarded the city of Damascus to capture me;
33 (11-33) and I was lowered into the basket from the window along the wall and escaped his hands.
