2 Corinthians 11

ASV 1 Would that ye could bear with me in a little foolishness: but indeed ye do bear with me. NIV 1 I hope you will put up with a little of my foolishness; but you are already doing that. ASV 2 For I am jealous over you with a godly jealousy: for I espoused you to one husband, that I might present you [as] a pure virgin to Christ. NIV 2 I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him. ASV 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve in his craftiness, your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity and the purity that is toward Christ. NIV 3 But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. ASV 4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we did not preach, or [if] ye receive a different spirit, which ye did not receive, or a different gospel, which ye did not accept, ye do well to bear with [him]. NIV 4 For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough. ASV 5 For I reckon that I am not a whit behind the very chiefest apostles. NIV 5 But I do not think I am in the least inferior to those "super-apostles." ASV 6 But though [I be] rude in speech, yet [am I] not in knowledge; nay, in every way have we made [this] manifest unto you in all things. NIV 6 I may not be a trained speaker, but I do have knowledge. We have made this perfectly clear to you in every way. ASV 7 Or did I commit a sin in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I preached to you the gospel of God for nought? NIV 7 Was it a sin for me to lower myself in order to elevate you by preaching the gospel of God to you free of charge? ASV 8 I robbed other churches, taking wages [of them] that I might minister unto you; NIV 8 I robbed other churches by receiving support from them so as to serve you. ASV 9 and when I was present with you and was in want, I was not a burden on any man; for the brethren, when they came from Macedonia, supplied the measure of my want; and in everything I kept myself from being burdensome unto you, and [so] will I keep [myself]. NIV 9 And when I was with you and needed something, I was not a burden to anyone, for the brothers who came from Macedonia supplied what I needed. I have kept myself from being a burden to you in any way, and will continue to do so. ASV 10 As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of this glorying in the regions of Achaia. NIV 10 As surely as the truth of Christ is in me, nobody in the regions of Achaia will stop this boasting of mine. ASV 11 Wherefore? because I love you not? God knoweth. NIV 11 Why? Because I do not love you? God knows I do! ASV 12 But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them that desire an occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we. NIV 12 And I will keep on doing what I am doing in order to cut the ground from under those who want an opportunity to be considered equal with us in the things they boast about. ASV 13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, fashioning themselves into apostles of Christ. NIV 13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. ASV 14 And no marvel; for even Satan fashioneth himself into an angel of light. NIV 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. ASV 15 It is no great thing therefore if his ministers also fashion themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works. NIV 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. ASV 16 I say again, let no man think me foolish; but if [ye do], yet as foolish receive me, that I also may glory a little. NIV 16 I repeat: Let no one take me for a fool. But if you do, then receive me just as you would a fool, so that I may do a little boasting. ASV 17 That which I speak, I speak not after the Lord, but as in foolishness, in this confidence of glorying. NIV 17 In this self-confident boasting I am not talking as the Lord would, but as a fool. ASV 18 Seeing that many glory after the flesh, I will glory also. NIV 18 Since many are boasting in the way the world does, I too will boast. ASV 19 For ye bear with the foolish gladly, being wise [yourselves]. NIV 19 You gladly put up with fools since you are so wise! ASV 20 For ye bear with a man, if he bringeth you into bondage, if he devoureth you, if he taketh you [captive], if he exalteth himself, if he smiteth you on the face. NIV 20 In fact, you even put up with anyone who enslaves you or exploits you or takes advantage of you or pushes himself forward or slaps you in the face. ASV 21 I speak by way of disparagement, as though we had been weak. Yet whereinsoever any is bold (I speak in foolishness), I am bold also. NIV 21 To my shame I admit that we were too weak for that! What anyone else dares to boast about--I am speaking as a fool--I also dare to boast about. ASV 22 Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so am I. NIV 22 Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they Abraham's descendants? So am I. ASV 23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as one beside himself) I more; in labors more abundantly, in prisons more abundantly, in stripes above measure, in deaths oft. NIV 23 Are they servants of Christ? (I am out of my mind to talk like this.) I am more. I have worked much harder, been in prison more frequently, been flogged more severely, and been exposed to death again and again. ASV 24 Of the Jews five times received I forty [stripes] save one. NIV 24 Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. ASV 25 Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day have I been in the deep; NIV 25 Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea, ASV 26 [in] journeyings often, [in] perils of rivers, [in] perils of robbers, [in] perils from [my] countrymen, [in] perils from the Gentiles, [in] perils in the city, [in] perils in the wilderness, [in] perils in the sea, [in] perils among false brethren; NIV 26 I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my own countrymen, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false brothers. ASV 27 [in] labor and travail, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. NIV 27 I have labored and toiled and have often gone without sleep; I have known hunger and thirst and have often gone without food; I have been cold and naked. ASV 28 Besides those things that are without, there is that which presseth upon me daily, anxiety for all the churches. NIV 28 Besides everything else, I face daily the pressure of my concern for all the churches. ASV 29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is caused to stumble, and I burn not? NIV 29 Who is weak, and I do not feel weak? Who is led into sin, and I do not inwardly burn? ASV 30 If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things that concern my weakness. NIV 30 If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness. ASV 31 The God and Father of the Lord Jesus, he who is blessed for evermore knoweth that I lie not. NIV 31 The God and Father of the Lord Jesus, who is to be praised forever, knows that I am not lying. ASV 32 In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king guarded the city of the Damascenes in order to take me: NIV 32 In Damascus the governor under King Aretas had the city of the Damascenes guarded in order to arrest me. ASV 33 and through a window was I let down in a basket by the wall, and escaped his hands. NIV 33 But I was lowered in a basket from a window in the wall and slipped through his hands.
