10:1 Now [G1161] I [G1473] Paul [G3972] myself [G846] beseech [G3870] you [G5209] by [G1223] the meekness [G4236] and [G2532] gentleness [G1932] of Christ [G5547] , who [G3739] in [G2596] presence [G4383] [am] base [G3303] [G5011] among [G1722] you [G5213] , but [G1161] being absent [G548] am bold [G2292] toward [G1519] you [G5209] :(in presence: or, in outward appearance)
10:2 But [G1161] I beseech [G1189] [you], that I may not [G3361] be bold [G2292] when I am present [G3918] with that confidence [G4006] , wherewith [G3739] I think [G3049] to be bold [G5111] against [G1909] some [G5100] , which [G3588] think [G3049] of us [G2248] as [G5613] if we walked [G4043] according [G2596] to the flesh [G4561] .(think: or, reckon)
10:3 For [G1063] though we walk [G4043] in [G1722] the flesh [G4561] , we do [G4754] not [G3756] war [G4754] after [G2596] the flesh [G4561] :
10:4 (For [G1063] the weapons [G3696] of our [G2257] warfare [G4752] [are] not [G3756] carnal [G4559] , but [G235] mighty [G1415] through God [G2316] to [G4314] the pulling down [G2506] of strong holds [G3794] ;)(through God: or, to God)
10:5 Casting down [G2507] imaginations [G3053] , and [G2532] every [G3956] high thing [G5313] that exalteth itself [G1869] against [G2596] the knowledge [G1108] of God [G2316] , and [G2532] bringing into captivity [G163] every [G3956] thought [G3540] to [G1519] the obedience [G5218] of Christ [G5547] ;(imaginations: or, reasonings)
10:6 And [G2532] having [G2192] in [G1722] a readiness [G2092] to revenge [G1556] all [G3956] disobedience [G3876] , when [G3752] your [G5216] obedience [G5218] is fulfilled [G4137] .
10:7 Do ye look on [G991] things after [G2596] the outward appearance [G4383] ? If any man [G1536] trust [G3982] to himself [G1438] that he is [G1511] Christ's [G5547] , let him [G3049] of [G575] himself [G1438] think [G3049] this [G5124] again [G3825] , that [G3754] , as [G2531] he [G846] [is] Christ's [G5547] , even [G2532] so [G3779] [are] we [G2249] Christ's [G5547] .
10:8 For [G1063] [G2532] though [G1437] [G5037] I should boast [G2744] somewhat [G5100] more [G4055] of [G4012] our [G2257] authority [G1849] , which [G3739] the Lord [G2962] hath given [G1325] us [G2254] for [G1519] edification [G3619] , and [G2532] not [G3756] for [G1519] your [G5216] destruction [G2506] , I should [G153] not [G3756] be ashamed [G153] :
10:9 That [G3363] I may [G1380] not [G3363] seem [G1380] as [G5613] if [G302] I would terrify [G1629] you [G5209] by [G1223] letters [G1992] .
10:10 For [G3754] [his] letters [G1992] [G3303] , say they [G5346] , [are] weighty [G926] and [G2532] powerful [G2478] ; but [G1161] [his] bodily [G4983] presence [G3952] [is] weak [G772] , and [G2532] [his] speech [G3056] contemptible [G1848] .(say they: Gr. saith he)
10:11 Let [G3049] such an one [G5108] think [G3049] this [G5124] , that [G3754] , such as [G3634] we are [G2070] in word [G3056] by [G1223] letters [G1992] when we are absent [G548] , such [G5108] [will we be] also [G2532] in deed [G2041] when we are present [G3918] .
10:12 For [G1063] we dare [G5111] not [G3756] make [G1469] ourselves of the number [G1469] , or [G2228] compare [G4793] ourselves [G1438] with [G4793] some [G5100] that commend [G4921] themselves [G1438] : but [G235] they [G846] measuring [G3354] themselves [G1438] by [G1722] themselves [G1438] , and [G2532] comparing [G4793] themselves [G1438] among [G4793] themselves [G1438] , are [G4920] not [G3756] wise [G4920] .(are: or, understand it not)
10:13 But [G1161] we [G2249] will [G2744] not [G3780] boast [G2744] of things without [G1519] [our] measure [G280] , but [G235] according [G2596] to the measure [G3358] of the rule [G2583] which [G3739] God [G2316] hath distributed [G3307] to us [G2254] , a measure [G3358] to reach [G2185] even [G2532] unto [G891] you [G5216] .(rule: or, line)
10:14 For [G1063] we stretch [G5239] not [G3756] ourselves [G1438] beyond [G5239] [our measure], as [G5613] though we reached [G2185] not [G3361] unto [G1519] you [G5209] : for [G1063] we are come [G5348] as far as [G891] to you [G5216] also [G2532] in [G1722] [preaching] the gospel [G2098] of Christ [G5547] :
10:15 Not [G3756] boasting [G2744] of things without [G1519] [our] measure [G280] , [that is], of [G1722] other men's [G245] labours [G2873] ; but [G1161] having [G2192] hope [G1680] , when your [G5216] faith [G4102] is increased [G837] , that we shall be enlarged [G3170] by [G1722] you [G5213] according [G2596] to our [G2257] rule [G2583] abundantly [G1519] [G4050] ,(enlarged: or, magnified in you)
10:16 To preach the gospel [G2097] in [G1519] the [regions] beyond [G5238] you [G5216] , [and] not [G3756] to boast [G2744] in [G1722] another man's [G245] line [G2583] of [G1519] things made ready to our hand [G2092] .(line: or, rule)
10:17 But [G1161] he that glorieth [G2744] , let him glory [G2744] in [G1722] the Lord [G2962] .
10:18 For [G1063] not [G3756] he [G1565] that commendeth [G4921] himself [G1438] is [G2076] approved [G1384] , but [G235] whom [G3739] the Lord [G2962] commendeth [G4921] .
