2 Corinthians 10
Paul Describes Himself1 Now a I, Paul, myself b urge you by the c meekness and gentleness of Christ— I who d am ▼
▼ Lit lowlymeek when face to face with you, but bold toward you when absent! 2 I ask that f when I am present I need not be bold with the confidence with which I propose to be courageous against g some, who regard us as if we walked h according to the flesh. 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war i according to the flesh, 4 for the j weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but ▼
▼ Or mighty before Goddivinely powerful l for the destruction of fortresses. 5 We are destroying speculations and every m lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the n obedience of Christ, 6 and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever o your obedience is complete. 7 ▼
▼ Or Look at... or Do you look at...?, q You are looking at ▼
▼ Lit what is before your facethings as they are outwardly. s If anyone is confident in himself that he is Christ’s, let him consider this again within himself, that just as he is Christ’s t so also are we. 8 For even if u I boast somewhat ▼
▼ Or more abundantlyfurther about our w authority, which the Lord gave for building you up and not for destroying you, I will not be put to shame, 9 ▼
▼ Lit so that I may not seemfor I do not wish to seem as if I would terrify you by my letters. 10 For they say, “His letters are weighty and strong, but his ▼
▼ Lit bodily presence is weakpersonal presence is z unimpressive and aa his speech contemptible.” 11 Let such a person consider this, that what we are in word by letters when absent, such persons we are also in deed when present. 12 For we are not bold to class or compare ourselves with ▼
▼ Or anysome of those who ac commend themselves; but when they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are without understanding. 13 But we will not boast ad beyond our measure, but ▼
▼ Lit according to the measure, af within the measure of the sphere which God apportioned to us as a measure, to reach even as far as you. 14 For we are not overextending ourselves, as if we did not reach to you, for ag we were the first to come even as far as you in the ah gospel of Christ; 15 not boasting ai beyond our measure, that is, in aj other men’s labors, but with the hope that as ak your faith grows, we will be, ▼
▼ Lit according to our spherewithin our sphere am enlarged even more by you, 16 so as to an preach the gospel even to ao the regions beyond you, and not to boast ▼
▼ Lit to the things prepared in the, aq in what has been accomplished in the sphere of another. 17 But ar he who boasts is to boast in the Lord. 18 For it is not he who as commends himself that is approved, but he at whom the Lord commends.
