Corinthians 2 10

Book of Corinthians 2 - Chapter 10

Corinthians 2 10:1

Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence [am] base among you, but being absent am bold toward you:

Corinthians 2 10:2

But I beseech [you], that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh.

Corinthians 2 10:3

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

Corinthians 2 10:4

(For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

Corinthians 2 10:5

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Corinthians 2 10:6

And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

Corinthians 2 10:7

Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? If any man trust to himself that he is Christ's, let him of himself think this again, that, as he [is] Christ's, even so [are] we Christ's.

Corinthians 2 10:8

For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the Lord hath given us for edification, and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed:

Corinthians 2 10:9

That I may not seem as if I would terrify you by letters.

Corinthians 2 10:10

For [his] letters, say they, [are] weighty and powerful; but [his] bodily presence [is] weak, and [his] speech contemptible.

Corinthians 2 10:11

Let such an one think this, that, such as we are in word by letters when we are absent, such [will we be] also in deed when we are present.

Corinthians 2 10:12

For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

Corinthians 2 10:13

But we will not boast of things without [our] measure, but according to the measure of the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you.

Corinthians 2 10:14

For we stretch not ourselves beyond [our measure], as though we reached not unto you: for we are come as far as to you also in [preaching] the gospel of Christ:

Corinthians 2 10:15

Not boasting of things without [our] measure, [that is], of other men's labours; but having hope, when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule abundantly,

Corinthians 2 10:16

To preach the gospel in the [regions] beyond you, [and] not to boast in another man's line of things made ready to our hand.

Corinthians 2 10:17

But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

Corinthians 2 10:18

For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth.
