For I’ll proclaim the title of the LORD; ascribe greatness to our God! The Rock, his work is ideal, and all his methods are simply.

He set him atop the heights of the land, and fed him with produce of the sector; he nursed him with honey from the crags, with oil from flinty rock; curds from the herd, and milk from the flock, with fats of lambs and rams; Bashan bulls and goats, along with the choicest wheat—you drank nice wine from the blood of grapes.

And, apart from different issues, I’m beneath every day stress due to my nervousness for all of the church buildings. Who’s weak, and I’m not weak? Who’s made to stumble, and I’m not indignant?

If I have to boast, I’ll boast of the issues that present my weak spot. The God and Father of the Lord Jesus (blessed be he without end!) is aware of that I don’t lie. In Damascus, the governor beneath King Aretas guarded town of Damascus as a way to seize me, however I used to be let down in a basket by way of a window within the wall, and escaped from his palms.
