2 Corinthians 12:9-10

Paul's Visions and His Thorn

9 And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly j I will rather boast in my infirmities, k that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore l I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. m For when I am weak, then I am strong.
