Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:1 - And I, Paul, myself, do call upon you -- through the meekness and gentleness of the Christ -- who in presence, indeed am humble among you, and being absent, have courage toward you,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:2 - and I beseech you, that, being present, I may not have courage, with the confidence with which I reckon to be bold against certain reckoning us as walking according to the flesh;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:3 - for walking in the flesh, not according to the flesh do we war,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:4 - for the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but powerful to God for bringing down of strongholds,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:5 - reasonings bringing down, and every high thing lifted up against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of the Christ,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:6 - and being in readiness to avenge every disobedience, whenever your obedience may be fulfilled.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:7 - The things in presence do ye see? if any one hath trusted in himself to be Christ's, this let him reckon again from himself, that according as he is Christ's, so also we are Christ's;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:8 - for even if also anything more abundantly I shall boast concerning our authority, that the Lord gave us for building up, and not for casting you down, I shall not be ashamed;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:9 - that I may not seem as if I would terrify you through the letters,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:10 - 'because the letters indeed -- saith one -- are weighty and strong, and the bodily presence weak, and the speech despicable.'
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:11 - This one -- let him reckon thus: that such as we are in word, through letters, being absent, such also, being present, we are in deed.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:12 - For we do not make bold to rank or to compare ourselves with certain of those commending themselves, but they, among themselves measuring themselves, and comparing themselves with themselves, are not wise,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:13 - and we in regard to the unmeasured things will not boast ourselves, but after the measure of the line that the God of measure did appoint to us -- to reach even unto you;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:14 - for not as not reaching to you do we stretch ourselves overmuch, for even unto you did we come in the good news of the Christ,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:15 - not boasting of the things not measured, in other men's labours, and having hope -- your faith increasing -- in you to be enlarged, according to our line -- into abundance,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:16 - in the places beyond you to proclaim good news, not in another's line in regard to the things made ready, to boast;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:17 - and he who is boasting -- in the Lord let him boast;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 10:18 - for not he who is commending himself is approved, but he whom the Lord doth commend.
