2 Corinthians 12:8

“For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from mee.”

King James Version (KJV)

2 Corinthians 12:8

5. Of such a one will I glory, yet of my selfe I will not glory, but in mine infirmities. 6. For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a foole: for I will say the trueth. But now I forbeare, lest any man should thinke of me aboue that which hee seeth me to bee, or that hee heareth of me: 7. And least I should bee exalted aboue measure through the abundance of the reuelations, there was giuen to me a thorne in the flesh, the messenger of Sathan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted aboue measure. 8. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from mee. 9. And he said vnto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weaknes. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest vpon me. 10. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christes sake: for when I am weake, then am I strong. 11. I am become a foole in glorying, ye haue compelled me. For I ought to haue beene commended of you: for in nothing am I behinde the very chiefest Apostles, though I be nothing.
