The Suffering & Trials of St Paul……wow!

From 2 Cor 11, 24

24 Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. 

25 Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was pelted with stones, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea, 

26 I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my fellow Jews, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city,in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false believers. 

27 I have labored and toiled and have often gone without sleep; I have known hunger and thirst and have often gone without food; I have been cold and naked. 

28 Besides everything else, I face daily the pressure of my concern for all the churches. 

29 Who is weak, and I do not feel weak? Who is led into sin, and I do not inwardly burn?

30 If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness. 

31 The God and Father of the Lord Jesus, who is to be praised forever, knows that I am not lying. 

32 In Damascus the governor under King Aretas had the city of the Damascenes guarded in order to arrest me. 

33 But I was lowered in a basket from a window in the wall and slipped through his hands.
