Galatians 4:12-14 New Matthew Bible (NMB)
12 Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am, for I am as you are.
You have not hurt me at all. 13 You know how through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel to you at the first. 14 And the adversity I suffered by reason of my flesh, you did not turn away or shrink from, but you received me as an angel of God, yea as Christ Jesus.
