People's Bible Notes for 2 Corinthians 11:27


2Co 11:27 In weariness and painfulness, etc. Often weary and in pain. The verse shows the self-denial made necessary in preaching the gospel. Often in want, hungry, naked and cold. Why should all these have been endured? Nothing but overwhelming conviction and love could have led him to this sacrifice himself.
