John 5:41

Glory from men (doxan para anqrwpwn). Mere honour and praise Jesus does not expect from men (verse John 34 ). This is not wounded pride, for ambition is not Christ's motive. He is unlike the Jews ( John 5:44 ; John 12:43 ; Matthew 6:1 ) and seeks not his own glory, but the glory and fellowship of the Father ( 1:14 ; 2:11 ; 7:18 ). Paul did not seek glory from men ( 1 Thessalonians 2:6 ).
