2 Corinthians 10

Previous chapter Index Next chapter
one But I, Paul, who personally am humble between you, but courageously against you in absentia, I convince you of the meekness and condescension of Christ.
2 I ask that, upon my coming, I should not resort to that firm courage which I think to use against some who think of us that we are doing according to the flesh.
3 For we, walking in the flesh, do not fight in the flesh.
4 The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but powerful by God to destroy strongholds: [they] overthrow the intentions
5 and all exaltation, rebelling against the knowledge of God, and captivate every thought in obedience to Christ,
6 and they are ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

7 Do you look at a person? Whoever believes in himself that he is Christ, then judge by yourself that, as he is Christ, we are Christ.
8 For if I began to boast more of our power, which the Lord gave us to build, and not to your frustration, I would not remain in shame.
nine However, may it not seem that I am frightening you [only] with messages.
10 Since [someone] says: in messages he is strict and strong, and in his personal presence is weak, and [his] speech is insignificant, -
eleven such let him know that, what we are in words in letters in absentia, such are in practice personally.

12 For we do not dare to compare or compare ourselves with those who expose themselves: they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves unreasonably.
thirteen And we will not boast without measure, but according to the inheritance that God has appointed for us in such a measure as to reach you.
14 For we do not strain ourselves as we have not reached you, because we have reached you through the gospel of Christ.
fifteen We boast not without measure, not by other people's labors, but we hope, with the growth of your faith, to increase our inheritance in excess in you,
sixteen so that you continue to preach the gospel, and not boast about being ready in someone else’s destiny.
17 Those boasting boasted about the Lord.
eighteen For he is not worthy who praises himself, but whom the Lord praises.
