34 fYou yourselves know that gthese hands ministered to my necessities and hto those who were with me.
12 and we elabor, working with our own hands. fWhen reviled, we bless; gwhen persecuted, we endure;
15 But cI have made no use of any of these rights, nor am I writing these things to secure any such provision. For I would rather die than have anyone ddeprive me of my ground for boasting.
7 Or adid I commit a sin in humbling myself so that you might be exalted, because bI preached God’s gospel to you free of charge?
13 For in what were you less favored than the rest of the churches, except that uI myself did not burden you? Forgive me this wrong!
9 For you remember, brothers, bour labor and toil: we cworked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you, while we proclaimed to you the gospel of God.
8 nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but ywith toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you.
