Affected Teaching
The word “doth” in the King James Bible is in the present tense. It is replaced in the modern versions with a future tense. Paul gives glory to God that he rescued him out of all the afflictions which came his way. At this point Paul is also trusting God that He will deliver him from both present and future tribulations which may threaten his life. A great principle emerges here in that God will continue to deliver His people out of these tribulations until the time that a Christian’s life and work on earth is done. Paul still had some years to go in service to God and that is why God kept delivering him from tribulations until one day Paul was on the chopping block and God did not deliver him from that because Paul’s work on earth was done and now it was time for his eternal rest.
