Bible: 2 Corinthians 1:8-9

1:8 For we do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, 1  regarding the affliction that happened to us in the province of Asia, 2  that we were burdened excessively, beyond our strength, so that we despaired even of living. 1:9 Indeed we felt as if the sentence of death had been passed against us, 3  so that we would not trust in ourselves 4  but in God who raises the dead.
