2 Corinthians 11:2-12 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
2 For I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy; for I 1betrothed you to one husband, so that to Christ I might 2present you as a pure virgin. 3 But I am afraid that, as the 3serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. 4 For if aone comes and preaches 4another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a 5different spirit which you have not received, or a 6different gospel which you have not accepted, you 7bear this 8beautifully. 5 For I consider myself 9not in the least inferior to the bmost eminent apostles. 6 But even if I am 10unskilled in speech, yet I am not so in 11knowledge; in fact, in every way we have 12made this evident to you in all things. 7 Or 13did I commit a sin in humbling myself so that you might be exalted, because I preached the 14gospel of God to you 15without charge? 8 I robbed other churches by 16taking wages from them to serve you; 9 and when I was present with you and was in need, I was 17not a burden to anyone; for when 18the brethren came from 19Macedonia they fully supplied my need, and in everything I kept myself from 20being a burden to you, cand will continue to do so. 10 21As the truth of Christ is in me, 22this boasting of mine will not be stopped in the regions of 23Achaia. 11 Why ? 24Because I do not love you? 25God knows I do! 12 But what I am doing I will continue to do, 26so that I may cut off opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be dregarded just as we are in the matter about which they are boasting.
