Boasting is necessary, though it is not profitable; but I will go on to visions and revelations [fn]of the Lord.

Tools specific to 2Co 12:2

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:2

I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or out of the body I do not know, God knows—such a man was caught up to the third heaven.

Tools specific to 2Co 12:3

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:3

And I know how such a man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, God knows—

Tools specific to 2Co 12:4

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:4

was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which a man is not permitted to speak.

Tools specific to 2Co 12:5

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:5

On behalf of such a man I will boast; but on my own behalf I will not boast, except in regard to my weaknesses.

Tools specific to 2Co 12:6

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:6

For if I do wish to boast I will not be foolish, for I will be speaking the truth; but I refrain from this, so that no one will credit me with more than he sees in me or hears from me.

Tools specific to 2Co 12:7

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:7

Because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, for this reason, to keep me from exalting myself, there was given me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to [fn]torment me—to keep me from exalting myself!

Tools specific to 2Co 12:8

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:8

Concerning this I implored the Lord three times that it might leave me.

Tools specific to 2Co 12:9

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:9

And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast [fn]about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.

Tools specific to 2Co 12:10

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:10

Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with [fn]insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

Tools specific to 2Co 12:11

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:11

I have become foolish; you yourselves compelled me. Actually I should have been commended by you, for in no respect was I inferior to the [fn]most eminent apostles, even though I am a nobody.

Tools specific to 2Co 12:12

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:12

The [fn]signs [fn]of a true apostle were performed among you with all perseverance, by [fn]signs and wonders and [fn]miracles.

Tools specific to 2Co 12:13

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:13

For in what respect were you treated as inferior to the rest of the churches, except that I myself did not become a burden to you? Forgive me this wrong!

Tools specific to 2Co 12:14

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:14

Here for this third time I am ready to come to you, and I will not be a burden to you; for I do not seek what is yours, but you; for children are not responsible to save up for their parents, but parents for their children.

Tools specific to 2Co 12:15

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:15

I will most gladly spend and be expended for your souls. If I love you more, am I to be loved less?

Tools specific to 2Co 12:16

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:16

But be that as it may, I did not burden you myself; nevertheless, crafty fellow that I am, I took you in by deceit.

Tools specific to 2Co 12:17

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:17

Certainly I have not taken advantage of you through any of those whom I have sent to you, have I?

Tools specific to 2Co 12:18

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:18

I urged Titus to go, and I sent the brother with him. Titus did not take any advantage of you, did he? Did we not [fn]conduct ourselves [fn]in the same spirit and walk in the same steps?

Tools specific to 2Co 12:19

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:19

All this time [fn]you have been thinking that we are defending ourselves to you. Actually, it is in the sight of God that we have been speaking in Christ; and all for your upbuilding, beloved.

Tools specific to 2Co 12:20

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:20

For I am afraid that perhaps when I come I may find you to be not what I wish and may be found by you to be not what you wish; that perhaps there will be strife, jealousy, angry tempers, disputes, slanders, gossip, arrogance, disturbances;

Tools specific to 2Co 12:21

Unchecked Copy Box 2Co 12:21

I am afraid that when I come again my God may humiliate me before you, and I may mourn over many of those who have sinned in the past and not repented of the impurity, [fn]immorality and sensuality which they have practiced.
