our measure, as though we reached not unto
you ; " for we are come as far as to you also
In preaching the gospel of Christ :

15 Not boasting of things without our
measure, thqf is, ^'of other men's labours; but
having hope, when your faith is increased,
that we shall be || enlarged by you, according
to our rule abundantly,

16 To preach the gospel in the regions
beyond you, and not to boast in another man's
II line of things made ready to our hand,

17 y But he that glorieth, let him glory in
the Lord.

18 For ^not he that comraendeth himself is
approved, but ''whom the Lord comraendeth.

CHAP. XL

I Out of his jealousy over tJie Corinthians, who seemed to
make more account of the false apostles than of him, he
enter eth into a forced commendation of himself, 5 of his
equality with the chief apostles, 7 of his preaching the
gospel to them freely, and without any their charge,
13 shewing that he was not inferior to those deceitful
workers in any legal prerogative, 23 and in the service
of Christ, and in all kind of sufferings for his minis-
try, far superior.

WOULD to God ye could bear with me
a little in ^my folly : and indeed

II bear with ine.

2 For I am ''jealous over you with godly,
jealousy : for "I have espoused you to one
husband, ^ that I may present you " as a,
chaste virgin to Christ,

3 But I fear, lest by any means, as ''the
serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so
your minds s should be corrupted from the
simplicity that is in Christ.

4 For if he that cometh preacheth another
Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye
receive another spirit, which ye have not re-
ceived, or ''another gospel, which ye have not
accepted, ye might well bear || with him.

5 For I suppose ' I was not a whit behind
the very chiefest apostles.

6 But though J' / be rude in speech, yet
not 'in knowledge; but "we have been
thoroughly made manifest among you in all
things,

7 Have I committed an offence » in abasing
myself that ye might be exalted, because I
have preached to you the gospel of God
freely ?

8 I robbed other churches, taking wages
of them, to do you service.

9 And when I was present with you, and
wanted, ° I was chargeable to no man : for
that which was lacking to me Pthe brethren

CORINTHIANS. His labours and sufferings.

which came from Macedonia supplied : and in
all things I have kept myself i from being, bur-
densome unto you, and so will I keep myself.

10 ^ As the truth of Christ is in me, f 'no
man shall stop me of this boasting in the
regions of Achaia.

11 Wherefore ? 'because I love you not?
God knoweth,

12 But what I do, that I will do, "that I
may cut off occasion from them which desire
occasion; that wherein they glory, they may
be found even as we.

13 For such ""are false apostles, y deceitful
workers, transforming themselves into the
apostles of Christ,

14 And no marvel ; for Satan himself is
transformed into ''an angel of light.

15 Therefore it is no great thing if his
ministers also be transformed as the =^ minis-
ters of righteousness ; ''whose end shall be
according to their works,

16 "I say again. Let no man think me a
fool ; if otherwise, yet as a fool || receive me,
that I may boast myself a little.

17 That which I speak, ''I speak it not
after the Lord, but as it were foolishly, " in
this confidence of boasting.

18 '"Seeing that many glory after the flesh,
I will glory also.

19 For ye suffer fools gladly, ^ seeing ye
yourselves are wise.

20 For ye suffer, ""if a man bring you into
bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take
of you, if a man exalt himself, if a man smite
you on the fape.

21 I speak as concerning reproach, 'as
though we had been weak. Ho wbeit, ■'where-
insoever any is bold, (I speak foolishly) I
am bold also,

22 Are they Hebrews? 'so am I, Are
they Israelites ? so am I. Are they the seed
of Abraham? so am I,

23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak
as a fool) I am more ; "" in labours more
abundant, " in stripes above measure, in pri-
sons more frequent, ° in deaths oft.

24 Of the Jews five times received I p forty
stripes save one,

25 Thrice was I ^beaten with rods, ''once
was I stoned, thrice I ^ suffered shipwreck, a
night and a day I have been in the deep ;

26 /n journeyings often, m perils of waters,
in perils of robbers, 'm perils by mine own
countrymen, "m perils by the heathen, in
perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness,
in perils in the sea, in perils among false
brethren ;

27 In weariness and painfulnesSj^'inwatch-
ings often, yin hunger and thirst, in fastings
often, in cold andT nakedness.

PauTs visions and revelations.

28 Besides those things that are without,
that which cometh upon me daily, '■ the care
of all the churches.

29 ''Who is weak, and I am not weak?
who is offended, and I burn not?

30 If I must needs glory, ''I will glory of
the things which concern mine infirmities.

31 "The God and Father of our Lord
Jesus Christ, ^ which is blessed for evermore,
knoweth that I lie not.

32 *In Damascus the governor under
Aretas the king kept the' city of the Damas-
cenes with a garrison, desirous to apprehend
me :

33 And through a window in a basket was
I let down by the wall, and escaped his
hands.

CHAP. XII.

1 For cominending of his apostlesMp, though he might
glory of his wonderful revelations, 9 yet he rather
chooseth to glory of his infirmities, 1 1 blaming them
for forcing him to this vain boasting. liHepro-
miseth to come to them again ; but yet altogether in the
affection of a father, 20 although hefeareth he shall
to his grief find many offenders, and public disorders
there.

IT is not expedient for me doubtless to
glory. 1 1 will come to visions and revela-
tions of the Lord.

2 I knew a man "in Christ above fourteen
years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot
tell ; or whether out of the body, I cannot
tell : God knoweth ;) such an one •• caught
up to the third heaven.

3 And I knew such a man, (whether in
the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell :
God knoweth ;)

4 How that he was caught up into "para-
dise, and heard unspeakable words, which it
is not II lawful for a man to utter.

5 Of such an one will I glory : ^ yet of
myself I will not glory, but in mine infir-
mities.

6 For "though I would desire to glory, I
shall not be a fool ; for I will' say the truth :
but now I forbear, lest any man should think
of me above that which he seeth me to he, or
that he heareth of me.

7 And lest I should be exalted above mea-
sure through the abundance of the revela-
tions, there was given to me a ^ thorn in the
flesh, &the messenger of Satan to buffet me,
lest I should be exalted above measure.

8 ''P'or this thing I besought the Lord
tlirice, that it might depart from me.

9 And he said unto me, My grace is suf-
ficient for thee : for my strength is made
perfect in weakness. Most- gladly therefore
' will I rather glory in my infirmities, ^ that
the power of Christ may rest upon me.

10 Therefore 'I take pleasure in infirmities,

He glorieth in his infirmities.

in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions,
in distresses for Christ's sake: ""for when I
am weak, then am I strong.

11 I am become "a fool in glorying ; ye
have compelled me : for I ought to have been
commended of you : for ° in nothing am I
behind the very chiefest apostles, though
p I be nothing.

12 1 Truly the signs of an apostle were
wrought among you in all patience, in signs,
and wonders, and mighty deeds.

13 'For what is it wherein ye were in-
ferior to other churches, except it he that » I
myself was not burdensome to you ? forgive
me 'this wrong.

14 "Behold, the third time I am ready to
come to you ; and I will not be burdensome
to you : for ^ I seek not yours, but you . y For
the children ought not to lay up for the
parents, but the parents for the children.

15 And ^I will very gladly spend and be
spent "for f you ; though '' the more abun-
dantly I love you, the less I be loved.

16 But be it so, "I did not burden you:
nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with
guHe.

17 ^ Did I make a gain of you by any of
them whom I sent unto you ?

18 "I desired Titus, and with Mm I sent
a '"brother. Did Titus make a gain of you?
walked we not in the same spirit ? walked
we not in the same steps ?

19 s Again, think ye that we excuse our-
selves unto you ? '' we speak before God in
Christ : ' but we do all things, dearly be-
loved, for your edifying.

20 For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall
not find you such as I would, and that ^ I
shall be found unto yovi such as ye would
not : lest there he debates, envyings, wraths,
strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings,
tumults :

21 And lest, when I come again, my God
'will humble me among you, and that I shall
bewail many -■" which have sinned already,
and have notrepented of the uncleanness, and
" fornication, and lasciviousness, which they
have committed.*

1 He threateneth severity, and the pmoer of his apostle-
ship against obstinate sinners. 5 And advising them
to a trial of their faith, 7 and to a reformation of their
sins before his coming, 11 he concludeth his epistle with
a general exhortation and a prayer.

HIS is nhe third time I am coming to

you : '' In the mouth of two or three

witnesses shall every word be established.

2 " I told you before, and foretell you, as if
I were present, the second time ; and being

absent now I write to them "^ which hereto-
fore have sinned, and to all other, that, if I
come again, ^ I will not spare :

3 Since ye seek a proof of Christ *" speak-
ing in me, which to you-ward is not weak, but
is mighty sin you.

4 ^ For though he was crucified through
weakness, yet ' he liveth by the power of God .
For ''we also are weak || in him, but we shall
live with him by the power of God toward you.

5 ' Examine yourselves, whether ye be in
the faith ; prove your own selves. Know ye
not your own selves, "how that Jesus Christ
is in you, except ye be ° reprobates ?

6 But I trust that ye shall know that we
are not reprobates.

7 Now I pray to God that ye do no evil ;
not that we should appear approved, but that
ye should do that which is honest, though
"we be as reprobates.

8 For we can do nothing against the truth,
but for the truth.

6 He wondereth that they have so soon left him and the
gospel, 8 and accurseth those that preach any other

Paul sheweth ivhy he went to Jerusalem. CHAP. II.

16 •'To reveal his Son in me, that <=!
might preach him among the heathen ; im-
mediately I conferred not with ■* flesh and
blood :

17 Neither, went 1 up to Jerusalem to
them which were apostles before me : Jbut I
went into Arabia, and returned again unto
Damascus.

18 Then after three years " 1 1| went up to
Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him
fifteen days.

19 But •■ other of the apostles saw I none,
save e James the Lord's brother.

20 Now the things which I write unto
you, "^ behold, before God, I lie not.

21 ' Afterwards I came into the regions of
Syria and Cilicia ;

22 And was unknown by face ''unto the
churches of Judea which 'were in Christ :

23 But they had heard only. That he which
persecuted us in times past, now preacheth
the faith which once h^estroyed.

24 And they glorified God in me.

CHAP. n.

1 He sheweth when he went up again to Jerusalem,'and
for what purpose ; 3 and that Titus was not circum-
cised: 11 and that he resisted Peter, and told him the
reason, 1 1 why he and other, being Jews, do believe in
Christ to be justified by faith, and not by works : 20
and that they live not in sin, who are so justified.

THEN fourteen years after ^ I went up
again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and
took Titus with me also.

2 And I went up by revelation, ''and com-
municated unto them that gospel which I
preach among the Gentiles, but || privately to
them which were of reputation, lest by any
means "=1 should run, or had run, in vain.

3 But neither Titus, who was with me,
being a Greek, was compelled to be cir-
cumcised :

4 And that because of ''false brethren
unawares brought in, who came in privily to
spy out our "^liberty which we have in
Christ Jesus, '"that they might bring us into
bondage :

5 To whom we gave place by subjection,
no, not for an hour ; that ethe truth of the
gospel might continue with you.

6 But of those, ''who seemed to be some-
what, whatsoever they were, it maketh no
matter to me : ' God accepteth no man's per-
son : for they who seemed to be somewhat, ''in
conference added nothing to me :

7 But contrariwise, 'when they saw that
the gospel of the uncircumcision ™ was com-
mitted unto me, as the gospel of the circum-
cision was unto Peter ;

8 (For he that wrought effectually in
Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision.

His expostulation with Peter.

' the same was ° mighty in me toward the
Gentiles :)

9 And when James, Cephas, and John,
who seemed to be p pillars, perceived i the
grace that was given unto me, they gave to
me and Barnabas the right hands of fellow-
ship ; that we should go unto the heathen,
and they unto the circumcision.

10 Only they would that we should remem-
ber the poor; 'the same which I also was for-
ward to do.

11 =But when Peter was come to Antioch,
I withstood him to the face, because he was
to be blamed.

12 For, before that certain came from
James, ' he did eat with the Gentiles : but
when they were come, he withdrew, and
separated himself, fearing them which were
of the circumcision.

13 And the other Jews dissembled like-
wise with him ; insomuch that Barnabas also
was carried away with their dissimulation.

14 But when I saw that they walked not
uprightly according to " the truth of the gos-
pel, I said unto Peter ^before them all, yJf
thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of
Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why com-
pellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the.
Jews?

15 ^We who are Jews by nature, and not
''sinners of the Gentiles,

16 ''Knowing that a man is not justified
by the works of the law, but ■= by the faith of
Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus
Christ, that we might be justified by the faith
of Christ, and not by the works of the law :
for ^ by the works of the law shall no flesh
be justified.

17 But if, while we seek to be justified by
Christ, we ourselves also are found ^ sinners,
is therefore Christ the minister of sin ? God
forbid.

18 For if I build again the things which
I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.

19 For I f through the law eam dead to
the law, that I might. ''hve unto God.

20 I am ' crucified with Christ : neverthe-
less, I live ; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me :
and the life which I now live in the flesh, ''I
live by the faith of the Son of God, 'who
loved me, and gave himself for me.

21 I do not frustrate the grace of God :
for "if righteousness come by the law, then
