1 G2744 To boast G1211 indeed G3756 is not G4851 an advantage G1473 to me; G2064 for I will come G1063 G1519 unto G3701 apparitions G2532 and G602 revelations G2962 of the Lord.
2 G1492 I know G444 a man G1722 in G5547 Christ G4253 [3ago G2094 2years G1180 1fourteen], G1535 (whether G1722 in G4983 body, G3756 I do not G1492 know; G1535 or whether G1623 outside G3588 the G4983 body, G3756 I do not G1492 know, G3588 G2316 God G1492 knows) G726 being seized by force G3588 G5108 was such a one G2193 unto G5154 the third G3772 heaven.
3 G2532 And G1492 I know G3588 G5108 such G444 a man, G1535 (whether G1722 in G4983 the body, G1535 or whether G1623 outside G3588 the G4983 body, G3756 I do not G1492 know, G3588 G2316 God G1492 knows),
4 G3754 that G726 he was seized by force G1519 into G3588 G3857 paradise, G2532 and G191 heard G731 [2not made known G4487 1sayings], G3739 which G3756 is not allowed G1832 G444 for a man G2980 to speak.
5 G5228 Concerning G3588 G5108 such a one G2744 I will boast, G5228 but concerning G1161 G1683 myself G3756 I shall not G2744 boast, G1508 unless G1722 in G3588 G769 my weaknesses. G1473
6 G1437 For if G1063 G2309 I should want G2744 to boast, G3756 I will not be G1510.8.1 G878 a fool; G225 [3 the truth G1063 1for G2046 2I shall speak]. G5339 But I spare, G1161 G3361 lest G5100 anyone G1519 G1473 should consider me G3049 G5228 above G3739 what G991 he sees G1473 me to be, G2228 or G191 hears G5100 anything G1537 of G1473 me.
7 G2532 And G3588 [4 over the G5236 5excess G3588 6of the G602 7revelations G2443 1so that G3361 2I should not G5229 3be elevated], G1325 there was given G1473 to me G4647 a barb G3588 in the G4561 flesh, G32 a messenger G4566 of Satan, G2443 that G1473 he should buffet me, G2852 G2443 that G3361 I should not G5229 be elevated.
8 G5228 For G3778 this G5151 three times G3588 [2the G2962 3Lord G3870 1I appealed to] G2443 that G868 it should abstain G575 from G1473 me.
9 G2532 And G2046 he has said G1473 to me, G714 Sufficient G1473 to you G3588 G5484 is my favor. G1473 G3588 G1063 For G1411 my power G1473 G1722 [2in G769 3weakness G5048 1is perfected]. G2236 Most gladly G3767 then G3123 rather G2744 I will boast G1722 in G3588 G769 my weaknesses, G1473 G2443 that G1981 [5should set up tent G1909 6over G1473 7me G3588 1the G1411 2power G3588 3of the G5547 4Christ].
10 G1352 Therefore G2106 I think well G1722 in G769 weaknesses, G1722 in G5196 insults, G1722 in G318 necessities, G1722 in G1375 persecutions, G1722 in G4730 straits G5228 for G5547 Christ. G3752 For whenever G1063 G770 I should be weak, G5119 then G1415 I am mighty. G1510.2.1
11 G1096 I have become G878 a fool G2744 boasting -- G1473 you G1473 compelled me. G315 G1473 For I G1063 G3784 ought G5259 by G1473 you G4921 to be commended; G3762 for in nothing G1063 G5302 was I lacking G3588 of the G5228 more G3029 exceeding G652 apostles, G1499 if even G3762 I am nothing. G1510.2.1
12 G3588 Indeed the G3303 G4592 signs G3588 of the G652 apostle G2716 were worked G1722 among G1473 you G1722 in G3956 all G5281 endurance, G1722 in G4592 signs, G2532 and G5059 miracles, G2532 and G1411 works of power.
13 G5100 For in what G1063 G1510.2.3 is it G3739 that G2274 you were inferior G5228 beyond G3588 the G3062 rest G1577 of the assemblies, G1508 unless G3754 that G1473 I myself G1473 G3756 was not G2655 lax G1473 of you? G5483 Grant G1473 me G3588 G93 this injustice! G3778
14 G2400 Behold, G5154 a third time G2093 readily G2192 I have G2064 come G4314 to G1473 you, G2532 and G3756 I will not G2655 be lax G1473 of you. G3756 For I do not G1063 G2212 seek G3588 the things G1473 of yours, G235 but G1473 you. G3756 [5not G1063 1For G3784 4ought G3588 2the G5043 3children G3588 7for the G1118 8parents G2343 6to treasure up], G235 but G3588 the G1118 parents G3588 for the G5043 children.
15 G1473 And I G1161 G2236 most gladly G1159 will spend G2532 and G1550 expend G5228 for G3588 G5590 your souls, G1473 G1499 if even G4056 more exceedingly G1473 loving you, G25 G2276 [2less G25 1I be loved].
16 G1510.5 But let it be! G1161 G1473 I G3756 did not G2599 burden G1473 you; G235 but G5224 being G3835 clever, G1388 in cunning G1473 I took you. G2983
17 G3361 Did G5100 by any G3739 whom G649 I sent G4314 to G1473 you, G1223 through G1473 him G4122 take advantage G1473 of you?
18 G3870 I appealed to G* Titus, G2532 and G4882 sent along with him G3588 the G80 brother. G3385 [4in anything G4122 2take advantage G1473 3of you G* 1Did Titus]? G3756 [2not G3588 4by the G1473 5same G4151 6spirit G4043 1Do we 3walk]? G3756 Not G3588 in the G1473 same G2487 tracks?
19 G3825 Again, G1380 do you think G3754 that G1473 to you G626 we make a defense? G2714 Before G3588 G2316 God G1722 in G5547 Christ G2980 we speak. G3588 G1161 But G3956 all things, G27 beloved, G5228 is for G3588 G1473 your G3619 edification.
20 G5399 For I fear G1063 G3381 perhaps G2064 having come G3756 [3not G3634 4as G2309 5I want G2147 1I should find G1473 2you]; G2504 and I G2147 should be found G1473 by you G3634 such as G3756 you want not; G2309 G3381 lest perhaps G2054 there be strife, G2205 jealousies, G2372 rages, G2052 contentions, G2636 evil speakings, G5587 whisperings, G5450 inflation of minds, G181 commotions;
21 G3361 lest G3825 again G2064 having come G1473 [2should humble me G5013 G3588 G2316 1my God] G1473 G4314 as to G1473 you, G2532 and G3996 I should mourn G4183 much G3588 of the ones G4258 previously sinning, G2532 and G3361 not G3340 having repented G1909 over G3588 the G167 uncleanness G2532 and G4202 harlotry G2532 and G766 lewdness G3739 which G4238 they practiced.
