047:010:001
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:


047:010:002
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.


047:010:003
For though we walk in the flesh,
we do not war after the flesh:


047:010:004
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal,
but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)


047:010:005
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;


047:010:006
And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience,
when your obedience is fulfilled.


047:010:007
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.


047:010:008
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:


047:010:009
That I may not seem as if I would terrify you by letters.


047:010:010
For his letters,
say they,
are weighty and powerful;
but his bodily presence is weak,
and his speech contemptible.


047:010:011
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.


047:010:012
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.


047:010:013
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.


047:010:014
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:


047:010:015
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,


047:010:016
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.


047:010:017
But he that glorieth,
let him glory in the Lord.


047:010:018
For not he that commendeth himself is approved,
but whom the Lord commendeth.
