2 Corinthians 11

NAS 1 I wish that you would bear with me in a little foolishness; but indeed you are bearing with me. NIV 1 I hope you will put up with me in a little foolishness. Yes, please put up with me! NAS 2 For I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy; for I betrothed you to one husband, so that to Christ I might present you as a pure virgin. 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. NAS 3 But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to 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. NAS 4 For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully. 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 Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough. NAS 5 For I consider myself not in the least inferior to the most eminent apostles. NIV 5 I do not think I am in the least inferior to those “super-apostles.” NAS 6 But even if I am unskilled in speech, yet I am not so in knowledge; in fact, in every way we have made this evident to you in all things. NIV 6 I may indeed be untrained as a speaker, but I do have knowledge. We have made this perfectly clear to you in every way. NAS 7 Or did I commit a sin in humbling myself so that you might be exalted, because I preached the gospel of God to you without charge? 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? NAS 8 I robbed other churches by taking wages from them to serve you; NIV 8 I robbed other churches by receiving support from them so as to serve you. NAS 9 and when I was present with you and was in need, I was not a burden to anyone; for when the brethren came from Macedonia they fully supplied my need, and in everything I kept myself from being a burden to you, and will continue to do so. 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. NAS 10 As the truth of Christ is in me, this boasting of mine will not be stopped 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. NAS 11 Why ? Because I do not love you? God knows I do! NIV 11 Why? Because I do not love you? God knows I do! NAS 12 But what I am doing I will continue to do, so that I may cut off opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the matter about which they are boasting. 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. NAS 13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. NIV 13 For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. NAS 14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. NIV 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. NAS 15 Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds. NIV 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. NAS 16 Again I say, let no one think me foolish; but if you do, receive me even as foolish, so that I also may boast a little. NIV 16 I repeat: Let no one take me for a fool. But if you do, then tolerate me just as you would a fool, so that I may do a little boasting. NAS 17 What I am saying, I am not saying as the Lord would, but as in foolishness, in this confidence of boasting. NIV 17 In this self-confident boasting I am not talking as the Lord would, but as a fool. NAS 18 Since many boast according to the flesh, I will boast also. NIV 18 Since many are boasting in the way the world does, I too will boast. NAS 19 For you, being so wise, tolerate the foolish gladly. NIV 19 You gladly put up with fools since you are so wise! NAS 20 For you tolerate it if anyone enslaves you, anyone devours you, anyone takes advantage of you, anyone exalts himself, anyone hits you in the face. NIV 20 In fact, you even put up with anyone who enslaves you or exploits you or takes advantage of you or puts on airs or slaps you in the face. NAS 21 To my shame I must say that we have been weak by comparison. But in whatever respect anyone else is bold -I speak in foolishness -I am just as bold myself. NIV 21 To my shame I admit that we were too weak for that! Whatever anyone else dares to boast about—I am speaking as a fool—I also dare to boast about. NAS 22 Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they descendants 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. NAS 23 Are they servants of Christ?-I speak as if insane -I more so; in far more labors, in far more imprisonments, beaten times without number, often in danger of death. 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. NAS 24 Five times I received from the Jews thirty-nine lashes. NIV 24 Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. NAS 25 Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, a night and a day I have spent in the deep. NIV 25 Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was pelted with stones, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea, NAS 26 I have been on frequent journeys, in dangers from rivers, dangers from robbers, dangers from my countrymen, dangers from the Gentiles, dangers in the city, dangers in the wilderness, dangers on the sea, dangers 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 fellow Jews, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false believers. NAS 27 I have been in labor and hardship, through many sleepless nights, in hunger and thirst, often without food, in cold and exposure. 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. NAS 28 Apart from such external things, there is the daily pressure on me of concern for all the churches. NIV 28 Besides everything else, I face daily the pressure of my concern for all the churches. NAS 29 Who is weak without my being weak? Who is led into sin without my intense concern? NIV 29 Who is weak, and I do not feel weak? Who is led into sin, and I do not inwardly burn? NAS 30 If I have to boast, I will boast of what pertains to my weakness. NIV 30 If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness. NAS 31 The God and Father of the Lord Jesus, He who is blessed forever, knows that I am not lying. NIV 31 The God and Father of the Lord Jesus, who is to be praised forever, knows that I am not lying. NAS 32 In Damascus the ethnarch under Aretas the king was guarding the city of the Damascenes in order to seize me, NIV 32 In Damascus the governor under King Aretas had the city of the Damascenes guarded in order to arrest me. NAS 33 and I was let down in a basket through a window in the wall, and so escaped his hands. NIV 33 But I was lowered in a basket from a window in the wall and slipped through his hands.
