11:9 When 1 I was with you and was in need, I was not a burden to anyone, for the brothers who came from Macedonia fully supplied my needs. 2 I 3 kept myself from being a burden to you in any way, and will continue to do so. 11:10 As the truth of Christ is in me, this boasting of mine 4 will not be stopped 5 in the regions of Achaia. 11:11 Why? Because I do not love you? God knows I do! 6
