2 Corinthians 11

1I wish you would bear with me a little in the foolishness; but even you do bear with me. 2I am zealous for you of God with a zeal; I espoused for you to one husband, a virgin pure to present to the Anointed; 3I fear but, lest as the serpent Eve deceived by the craft of himself, so should be corrupted the minds of you from the simplicity of that into the Anointed. 4If indeed for the one coming another Jesus proclaims whom not we proclaimed, or spirit another you receive which not you received, or glad tidings other which not you embraced, well you might bear. 5I reckon for nothing to have been behind those in the highest degree apostles. 6If but even a simple person in the word, yet not in the knowledge; but in every thing having been manifested in all things among you. 7Or sin did I commit, myself humbling, so that you might be exalted? because freely the of the God glad tidings I announced to you? 8Other congregations I robbed, having taken wages for the of you service; and being present with you and having been in want, not did I lazily burden any one; 9(the for want of me supplied before the brethren having come from Macedonia;) and in every thing unburdensome to you myself I kept, and I will keep. 10It is a truth of Anointed in me, that the boasting this not shall be stopped concerning me in the regions of the Achaia. 11Why? because not I love you? The God knows. 12What but I do, even I will do, so that I may cut off the opportunity of those wishing an opportunity, so that in what they boast, they may be found as even we. 13The for such ones false apostles workers deceitful, transforming themselves into apostles of Anointed. 14And not it is wonderful; himself for the adversary is transformed into a messenger of light; 15not great therefore, if also the servants of him are transformed as servants of righteousness; of whom the end shall be according to the works of him. 16Again i say, not any one me should think unwise to be; if but otherwise, even as unwise do you receive me, so that even I a little somewhat may boast. 17What I speak, not I speak according to Lord, but as in foolishness, in this the confidence of the boasting. 18Since many boast according to the flesh, also I will boast. 19Willingly for you bear with the unwise, wise ones being; 20you bear for, if any one you enslaves, if any one eats you up, if any one takes you, if any one raises himself up, if any one you on face beats. 21According to dishonor I speak, as that we were weak; in what but any one may be bold, (in foolishness I speak,) bold also I. 22Hebrews are they? also I; Israelites are they? also I; seed of Abraham are they? also I; 23servants of Anointed are they? (being a very fool I speak,) above I; in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often; 24(by Jews five times forty except one I received, 25thrice I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, thrice I was shipwrecked, a night and day in the deep I have passed;) 26in journeys often; in dangers of rivers, in dangers of robbers, in dangers from kindred, in dangers from Gentiles, in dangers in city, in dangers in desert, in dangers at sea, in dangers among false brethren; 27in labor and toil, in watchings often in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. 28Besides the outward things, the crowding of me that every day, the care of all of the congregations. 29Who is weak, and not I am weak? who is made to stumble, and not I burn? 30If to boast is necessary, the things of the weakness of me I will boast. 31The God and Father of the Lord of us Jesus Anointed knows, he being blessed for the ages, that not I utter falsehood; 32in Damascus the ethnarch Aretas of the king guarded the Damascenes city, to seize me wishing; 33and through an opening in a rope basket I was lowered through the wall, and escaped the hands of him.
