“Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are, ye haue not iniured me at all.”
King James Version (KJV)
9. But now after that yee haue knowen God, or rather are knowen of God, how turne ye againe to the weak and beggerly Elements, whereunto ye desire againe to be in bondage? 10. Yee obserue dayes, and moneths, and times, and yeeres. 11. I am afraide of you, lest I haue bestowed vpon you labour in vaine. 12. Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are, ye haue not iniured me at all. 13. Ye know how through infirmitie of the flesh, I preached the Gospel vnto you at the first. 14. And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor reiected, but receiued mee as an Angel of God, euen as Christ Iesus. 15. Where is then the blessednes you spake of? for I beare you record, that if it had bin possible, ye would haue plucked out your own eyes, and haue giuen them to me.
