2 Corinthians 12:7-9

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, so I would not be exalted above measure.

 8 I pleaded with the Lord three times about this thing, that it might depart from me.

 9 And he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you; for my strength is made perfect in weakness." So I will gladly boast in my infirmities, so that the power of Christ may rest on me.
