But in everything, as God's ministers, we commend ourselves: by great endurance, by afflictions, by hardship, by pressures,
by beatings, by imprisonments, by riots, by labors, by sleepless nights, by times of hunger,
by purity, by knowledge, by patience, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love,
by the message of truth, by the power of God; through weapons of righteousness on the right hand and the left,
through glory and dishonor, through slander and good report; as deceivers yet true;
as unknown yet recognized; as dying and look-- we live; as being chastened yet not killed;
as grieving yet always rejoicing; as poor yet enriching many; as having nothing yet possessing everything.
