kjv@2Corinthians: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:
kjv@2Corinthians: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.
kjv@2Corinthians:10:4@ (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
kjv@2Corinthians: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;
kjv@2Corinthians:10:6@ And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
kjv@2Corinthians: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.
kjv@2Corinthians: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:
kjv@2Corinthians:10:10@ For his letters, say they, are weighty and powerful; but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible.
kjv@2Corinthians: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.
kjv@2Corinthians: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.
kjv@2Corinthians: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.
kjv@2Corinthians: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:
kjv@2Corinthians: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,
kjv@2Corinthians: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.
kjv@2Corinthians:11:2@ For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
kjv@2Corinthians:11:3@ But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
kjv@2Corinthians:11:4@ For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
kjv@2Corinthians:11:9@ And when I was present with you, and wanted, I was chargeable to no man: for that which was lacking to me the brethren which came from Macedonia supplied: and in all things I have kept myself from being burdensome unto you, and so will I keep myself.
kjv@2Corinthians:11:10@ As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of this boasting in the regions of Achaia.
kjv@2Corinthians:11:25@ Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;
kjv@2Corinthians:11:26@ In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;
kjv@2Corinthians:11:27@ In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.
kjv@2Corinthians:11:28@ Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:1@ It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:2@ I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:3@ And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)
kjv@2Corinthians:12:4@ How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:5@ Of such an one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:6@ For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be, or that he heareth of me.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:7@ And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:9@ And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:10@ Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:11@ I am become a fool in glorying; ye have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest apostles, though I be nothing.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:12@ Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:13@ For what is it wherein ye were inferior to other churches, except it be that I myself was not burdensome to you? forgive me this wrong.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:14@ Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours, but you: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:15@ And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:16@ But be it so, I did not burden you: nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with guile.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:18@ I desired Titus, and with him I sent a brother. Did Titus make a gain of you? walked we not in the same spirit? walked we not in the same steps?
kjv@2Corinthians:12:19@ Again, think ye that we excuse ourselves unto you? we speak before God in Christ: but we do all things, dearly beloved, for your edifying.
kjv@2Corinthians:12:20@ For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults:
kjv@2Corinthians:12:21@ And lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and that I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness which they have committed.
kjv@2Corinthians:13:1@ This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.
kjv@2Corinthians:13:2@ I told you before, and foretell you, as if I were present, the second time; and being absent now I write to them which heretofore have sinned, and to all other, that, if I come again, I will not spare:
kjv@2Corinthians:13:3@ Since ye seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you.
kjv@2Corinthians:13:4@ For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.
kjv@2Corinthians:13:5@ Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
kjv@2Corinthians:13:9@ For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection.
kjv@2Corinthians:13:10@ Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me to edification, and not to destruction.
kjv@2Corinthians:13:11@ Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
