Thorn in the Flesh
This was something that Satan was allowed to inflict on Paul, not because of any fault he had committed, but lest he should be puffed up on account of his having been caught up into the third heaven. 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 .Apparently it was something that made him contemptible in the eyes ofhis fleshly opponents. See 2 Corinthians 10:10; 2 Corinthians 11:30; Galatians 4:13,14 .
