2 Corinthians 1:8-11

CLV(i) 8 For we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning our affliction which came to us in the province of Asia, that we were inordinately burdened, over our ability, so that we were despairing of life also." 9 But we have the rescript of death in ourselves, that we may be having no confidence in ourselves, but in God, Who rouses the dead, 10 Who rescues us from a death of such proportions, and will be rescuing; on Whom we rely that He will still be rescuing also;" 11 you also assisting together by a petition for us, in order that, from many faces He may be thanked by many for us for the gracious gift given to us."
