2 Corinthians 11
- Would that ye would bear with me [in] a little folly; but indeed bear with me.
- For I am jealous as to you with a jealousy [which is] of God; for I have espoused you unto one man, to present [you] a chaste virgin to Christ.
- But I fear lest by any means, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craft, [so] your thoughts should be corrupted from simplicity as to the Christ.
- For if indeed he that comes preaches another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or ye get a different Spirit, which ye have not got, or a different glad tidings, which ye have not received, ye might well bear with [it].
- For I reckon that in nothing I am behind those who are in surpassing degree apostles.
- But if [I am] a simple person in speech, yet not in knowledge, but in everything making [the truth] manifest in all things to you.
- Have I committed sin, abasing myself in order that *ye* might be exalted, because I gratuitously announced to you the glad tidings of God?
- I spoiled other assemblies, receiving hire for ministry towards you.
- And being present with you and lacking, I did not lazily burden any one, (for the brethren who came from Macedonia supplied what I lacked,) and in everything I kept myself from being a burden to you, and will keep myself.
- [The] truth of Christ is in me that this boasting shall not be stopped as to me in the regions of Achaia.
- Why? because I do not love you? God knows.
- But what I do, I will also do, that I may cut off the opportunity of those wishing [for] an opportunity, that wherein they boast they may be found even as we.
- For such [are] false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.
- And [it is] not wonderful, for Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.
- It is no great thing therefore if his ministers also transform themselves as ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
- Again I say, Let not any one think me to be a fool; but if otherwise, receive me then even as a fool, that *I* also may boast myself some little.
- What I speak I do not speak according to [the] Lord, but as in folly, in this confidence of boasting.
- Since many boast according to flesh, *I* also will boast.
- For ye bear fools readily, being wise.
- For ye bear if any one bring you into bondage, if any one devour [you], if any one get [your money], if any one exalt himself, if any one beat you on the face.
- I speak as to dishonour, as though *we* had been weak; but wherein any one is daring, (I speak in folly,) *I* also am daring.
- Are they Hebrews? *I* also. Are they Israelites? *I* also. Are they seed of Abraham? *I* also.
- Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as being beside myself) *I* above measure [so]; in labours exceedingly abundant, in stripes to excess, in prisons exceedingly abundant, in deaths oft.
- From the Jews five times have I received forty [stripes], save one.
- Thrice have I been scourged, once I have been stoned, three times I have suffered shipwreck, a night and day I passed in the deep:
- in journeyings often, in perils of rivers, in perils of robbers, in perils from [my own] race, in perils from [the] nations, in perils in [the] city, in perils in [the] desert, in perils on [the] sea, in perils among false brethren;
- in labour and toil, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.
- Besides those things that are without, the crowd [of cares] pressing on me daily, the burden of all the assemblies.
- Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is stumbled, and I burn not?
- If it is needful to boast, I will boast in the things which concern my infirmity.
- The God and Father of the Lord Jesus knows -- he who is blessed for ever -- that I do not lie.
- In Damascus the ethnarch of Aretas the king kept the city of the Damascenes shut up, wishing to take me;
- and through a window in a basket I was let down by the wall, and escaped his hands.
2 Corinthians 12
- Well, it is not of profit to me to boast, for I will come to visions and revelations of [the] Lord.
- I know a man in Christ, fourteen years ago, (whether in [the] body I know not, or out of the body I know not, God knows;) such [a one] caught up to [the] third heaven.
- And I know such a man, (whether in [the] body or out of the body I know not, God knows;)
- that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable things said which it is not allowed to man to utter.
- Of such [a one] I will boast, but of myself I will not boast, unless in my weaknesses.
- For if I shall desire to boast, I shall not be a fool; for I will say [the] truth; but I forbear, lest any one should think as to me above what he sees me [to be], or whatever he may hear of me.
- And that I might not be exalted by the exceeding greatness of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn for the flesh, a messenger of Satan that he might buffet me, that I might not be exalted.
- For this I thrice besought the Lord that it might depart from me.
- And he said to me, My grace suffices thee; for [my] power is perfected in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather boast in my weaknesses, that the power of the Christ may dwell upon me.
- Wherefore I take pleasure in weaknesses, in insults, in necessities, in persecutions, in straits, for Christ: for when I am weak, then I am powerful.
- I have become a fool; *ye* have compelled me; for *I* ought to have been commended by you; for I have been nothing behind those who were in surpassing degree apostles, if also I am nothing.
- The signs indeed of the apostle were wrought among you in all endurance, signs, and wonders, and works of power.
- For in what is it that ye have been inferior to the other assemblies, unless that I myself have not been in laziness a charge upon you? Forgive me this injury.
- Behold, this third time I am ready to come to you, and I will not be in laziness a charge; for I do not seek yours, but you; for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.
- Now *I* shall most gladly spend and be utterly spent for your souls, if even in abundantly loving you I should be less loved.
- But be it so. *I* did not burden you, but being crafty I took you by guile.
- Did I make gain of you by any of those whom I have sent to you?
- I begged Titus, and sent the brother with [him]: did Titus at all make gain of you? have we not walked in the same spirit? [have we] not in the same steps?
- Ye have long been supposing that we excuse ourselves to you: we speak before God in Christ; and all things, beloved, for your building up.
- For I fear lest perhaps coming I find you not such as I wish, and that *I* be found by you such as ye do not wish: lest [there might be] strifes, jealousies, angers, contentions, evil speakings, whisperings, puffings up, disturbances;
- lest my God should humble me as to you when I come again, and that I shall grieve over many of those who have sinned before, and have not repented as to the uncleanness and fornication and licentiousness which they have practised.

- This third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every matter be established.
- I have declared beforehand, and I say beforehand as present the second time, and now absent, to those that have sinned before, and to all the rest, that if I come again I will not spare.
- Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, (who is not weak towards you, but is powerful among you,
- for if indeed he has been crucified in weakness, yet he lives by God's power; for indeed *we* are weak in him, but we shall live with him by God's power towards you,)
- examine your own selves if ye be in the faith; prove your own selves: do ye not recognise yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you, unless indeed ye be reprobates?
- Now I hope that ye will know that *we* are not reprobates.
- But we pray to God that ye may do nothing evil; not that *we* may appear approved, but that *ye* may do what is right, and *we* be as reprobates.
- For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
- For we rejoice when *we* may be weak and *ye* may be powerful. But this also we pray for, your perfecting.
- On this account I write these things being absent, that being present I may not use severity according to the authority which the Lord has given me for building up, and not for overthrowing.
- For the rest, brethren, rejoice; be perfected; be encouraged; be of one mind; be at peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
- Salute one another with a holy kiss.
- All the saints salute you.
- The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, [be] with you all.
