7 G2532 And G3363 lest G5229 I should be exalted above measure [G5747] G5236 through the abundance G602 of the revelations G1325 , there was given [G5681] G3427 to me G4647 a thorn G4561 in the flesh G32 , the messenger G4566 of Satan G2443 to G2852 buffet [G5725] G3165 me G3363 , lest G5229 I should be exalted above measure [G5747] .
8 G5228 For G5127 this thing G3870 I besought [G5656] G2962 the Lord G5151 thrice G2443 , that G868 it might depart [G5632] G575 from G1700 me.
9 G2532 And G2046 he said [G5758] G3427 unto me G3450 , My G5485 grace G714 is sufficient [G5719] G4671 for thee G1063 : for G3450 my G1411 strength G5048 is made perfect [G5743] G1722 in G769 weakness G2236 . Most gladly G3767 therefore G2744 will I G3123 rather G2744 glory [G5695] G1722 in G3450 my G769 infirmities G2443 , that G1411 the power G5547 of Christ G1981 may rest [G5661] G1909 upon G1691 me.
10 G1352 Therefore G2106 I take pleasure [G5719] G1722 in G769 infirmities G1722 , in G5196 reproaches G1722 , in G318 necessities G1722 , in G1375 persecutions G1722 , in G4730 distresses G5228 for G5547 Christ's G5228 sake G1063 : for G3752 when G770 I am weak [G5725] G5119 , then G1510 am [G5748] G1415 I strong.
