For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not in wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made void.
And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
But though (I be) rude in speech, yet (am I) not in knowledge; nay, in every way have we made (this) manifest unto you in all things.
but ye know that because of an infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you the first time:
and that which was a temptation to you in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but ye received me as an angel of God, (even) as Christ Jesus.
