2 Corinthians 12:1

I must needs glory (kaucasqai dei). This is the reading of B L Latin Syriac, but Aleph D Bohairic have de while K M read dh. The first is probably correct. He must go on with the glorying already begun, foolish as it is, though it is not expedient (ou sumperon). Visions (optasia). Late word from optazw. See on "Lu 1:22"; see also "Ac 26:19". Revelations of the Lord (apokalupsei Kuriou). Unveilings (from apokaluptw as in Revelation 1:1 ). See on "2Th 1:7"; see also "1Co 1:7"; see also "1Co 14:26". Paul had both repeated visions of Christ ( Acts 9:3 ; Acts 16:9 ; Acts 18:9 ; Acts 22:17 ; Acts 27:23 ) and revelations. He claimed to speak by direct revelation ( 1 Corinthians 11:23 ; 1 Corinthians 15:3 ; Galatians 1:12 ; Ephesians 3:3 , etc.).
