8 For awe do not want you to be unaware, brethren, of our baffliction which came to us in 1cAsia, that we were burdened excessively, beyond our strength, so that we despaired even of life;
9 1indeed, we had the sentence of death within ourselves so that we would not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead;
10 who adelivered us from so great a peril of death, and will deliver us, 1He bon whom we have set our hope. And He will yet deliver us,
11 you also joining in ahelping us through your prayers, so that thanks may be given by bmany persons on our behalf for the favor bestowed on us through the prayers of many.
