3 But I fear lest by any means, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craft, [so] your thoughts should be corrupted from simplicity as to the Christ.

References for 2 Corinthians 11:3

    • a 11:3 - 'Simplicity' here refers, not to a personal trait, but to the doctrine as to Christ; what a faithful heart retained in simplicity, as taught in the truth. To say 'which [is] in the Christ,' is too much as if it were in Christ himself, not the doctrine.
