are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised.
CO1 4:11 Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and
are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace;
CO1 4:12 And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we
bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:
CO1 4:13 Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the
world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.
CO1 4:14 I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons
I warn you.
CO1 4:15 For though ye have ten thousand instructers in Christ, yet
have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you
