Paul Describes Himself

1 Now I, R346 Paul, myself urge R347 you by the meekness R348 and gentleness of Christ--I who am R349 meek F71 when face to face with you, but bold toward you when absent! 2 I ask that when R350 I am present I need not be bold with the confidence with which I propose to be courageous against some, R351 who regard us as if we walked according R352 to the flesh. 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according R353 to the flesh, 4 for the weapons R354 of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely F72 powerful for R355 the destruction of fortresses. 5 We are destroying speculations and every lofty R356 thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience R357 of Christ, 6 and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your R358 obedience is complete.

7 You R359 F73 are looking at things F74 as they are outwardly. If R360 anyone is confident in himself that he is Christ's, let him consider this again within himself, that just as he is Christ's, so R361 also are we. 8 For even if I R362 boast somewhat further F75 about our authority, R363 which the Lord gave for building you up and not for destroying you, I will not be put to shame, 9 for F76 I do not wish to seem as if I would terrify you by my letters. 10 For they say, "His letters are weighty and strong, but his personal F77 presence is unimpressive R364 and his R365 speech contemptible." 11 Let such a person consider this, that what we are in word by letters when absent, such persons we are also in deed when present.

12 For we are not bold to class or compare ourselves with some F78 of those who commend R366 themselves; but when they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are without understanding. 13 But we will not boast beyond R367 our measure, but within R368 F79 the measure of the sphere which God apportioned to us as a measure, to reach even as far as you. 14 For we are not overextending ourselves, as if we did not reach to you, for we R369 were the first to come even as far as you in the gospel R370 of Christ; 15 not boasting beyond R371 our measure, that is, in other R372 men's labors, but with the hope that as your R373 faith grows, we will be, within F80 our sphere, enlarged R374 even more by you, 16 so as to preach R375 the gospel even to the R376 regions beyond you, and not to boast in R377 F81 what has been accomplished in the sphere of another. 17 But HE R378 WHO BOASTS IS TO BOAST IN THE LORD. 18 For it is not he who commends R379 himself that is approved, but he whom R380 the Lord commends.
