“And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:14 And ye did not slight my temptation - That is, ye did not slight or disdain me for my temptation, my thorn in the flesh.
Ga 4:14 And my temptation which was in my flesh. The Revised Version follows the best manuscripts: "Your temptation, which was in my flesh". His "infirmity" is meant. It was probably some malady which hindered his work--might have disfigured him, and been a temptation to the Galatians to ridicule and despise him. Probably 2Co 12:7 refers to the same affliction. Both these allusions show that the infirmity was one that he severely felt. But the Galatians despised not, nor rejected him on that account, but received him heartily, even as an angel of God, God's messenger.
