2 Corinthians 11:30-33 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

30 If it behooveth to glory, I shall glory in those things that be of mine infirmity [that be of my infirmity, or frailty].

31 [For] God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, that is blessed into worlds, knoweth that I lie not [knoweth, that I gab not, or lie not].

32 The provost of Damascus, of the king of the folk of Aretas [The provost, or keeper, of Damascus, of the king of the folk Arteas], kept the city of Damascenes to take me;

33 and by a window in a basket I was let down by the wall, and so I escaped his hands.

2 Corinthians 11:30-33 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

30 If I must boast, I will boast of my infirmities. 31 The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is blessed forevermore, knows that I am not lying.

32 In the city of Damascus, the governor of the people under king Aretas laid watch in the city of the Damascenes, and would have captured me. 33 But at a window I was let down in a basket through the wall, and so escaped his hands.

  1. 2 Corinthians 11:30 He turneth that against the adversaries, which they objected against him: as if he should say, They allege my calamities, to take away my authority from me: but if I would boast myself, I would take no better argument: and God himself is my witness that I devise and forge nothing.
