2 Corinthians 1:8-11 (Epistle)
- For we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, of our trouble which came to us in Asia: that we were burdened beyond measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life.
- Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead,
- who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us,
- you also helping together in prayer for us, that thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf for the gift granted to us through many.
