12 qTruly the signs of an apostle were accomplished among you with all perseverance, in signs and rwonders and mighty sdeeds. 13 For what is it in which you were inferior to other churches, except that I myself was not burdensome to you? Forgive me this wrong!
14 tNow for the third time I am ready to come to you. And I will not be burdensome to you; for uI do not seek yours, but you. vFor the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children. 15 And I will very gladly spend and be spent wfor your souls; though xthe more abundantly I love you, the less I am loved.
