2 Corinthians 11:27

fastings—voluntary, in order to kindle devotions (Acts 13:2-3; Acts 14:23; I Corinthians 9:27); for they are distinguished from "hunger and thirst," which were involuntary [GROTIUS]. However, see on II Corinthians 6:5. The context refers solely to hardships, not to self-imposed devotional mortification. "Hunger and thirst" are not synonymous with "foodlessness" (as the Greek of "fasting" means), but are its consequences.

cold . . . nakedness—"cold" resulting from "nakedness," or insufficient clothing, as the Greek often means: as "hunger and thirst" result from "foodlessness." (Compare Acts 28:2; Romans 8:35). "When we remember that he who endured all this was a man constantly suffering from infirm health (II Corinthians 4:7-12; II Corinthians 12:7-10; Galatians 4:13-14), such heroic self-devotion seems almost superhuman" [CONYBEARE and HOWSON].
