1 G1473 [3myself G1161 1But G1473 2I], G* Paul, G3870 appeal to G1473 you, G1223 through G3588 the G4236 gentleness G2532 and G1932 clemency G3588 of the G5547 Christ, G3739 who G2596 in person G4383 G3303 indeed G5011 am humble G1722 among G1473 you, G548 and absent G1161 G2292 I take courage G1519 in G1473 you.
2 G1189 But I beseech you, G1161 G3588 I the one G3361 not G3918 at hand G2292 to have taken courage, G3588 with the G4006 reliance G3739 which G3049 I consider G5111 to dare G1909 against G5100 some G3588 of the ones G3049 considering G1473 us G5613 as G2596 [2according to G4561 3 the flesh G4043 1walking],
3 G1722 [3in G4561 4 the flesh G1063 1for G4043 2walking G3756 6not G2596 7according to G4561 8 the flesh G4754 5we soldier],
4 G3588 (for the G1063 G3696 weapons G3588 G4752 of our army G1473 G3756 are not G4559 fleshly, G235 but G1415 mighty G3588 G2316 with God G4314 to G2506 the demolition G3794 of fortresses),
5 G3053 [2devices G2507 1demolishing] G2532 and G3956 every G5313 height G1869 being lifted up G2596 against G3588 the G1108 knowledge G3588 G2316 of God, G2532 and G163 captivating G3956 every G3540 thought G1519 into G3588 the G5218 obedience G3588 of the G5547 Christ;
6 G2532 and G1722 [2in G2092 3readiness G2192 1having] G1556 to punish G3956 all G3876 disobedience, G3752 whenever G4137 [3should be fulfilled G1473 1your G3588 G5218 2obedience].
7 G3588 The things G2596 according to G4383 appearance G991 do you take heed only ? G1536 If anyone G3982 is persuaded G1438 in himself G5547 to be of Christ, G1510.1 G3778 let him consider this G3049 G3825 again G575 of G1438 himself, G3754 that G2531 as G1473 he G5547 is of Christ, G3779 so G2532 also G1473 we are G5547 of Christ.
8 G1437 For if also G5037 G1063 G2532 even G4053 more extra G5100 somewhat G2744 I should boast G4012 concerning G3588 G1849 our authority, G1473 G3739 (of which G1325 [3gave G3588 1the G2962 2Lord] G1473 to us G1519 for G3619 construction, G2532 and G3756 not G1519 for G2506 your demolition,) G1473 G3756 I shall not G153 be ashamed;
9 G2443 that G3361 I should not G1380 seem G5613 as G302 if G1629 to frighten G1473 you G1223 through G3588 G1992 letters.
10 G3754 For G3588 the G3303 letters indeed, G1992 G5346 one says, G926 are heavy G2532 and G2478 strong, G3588 G1161 but G3952 the arrival G3588 G4983 of his person G772 weak, G2532 and G3588 the G3056 word G1848 being contemptable.
11 G3778 [4this G3049 1Let 3consider G3588 G5108 2such], G3754 that G3634 as G1510.2.4 we are G3588 G3056 in word G1223 through G1992 letters G548 being absent, G5108 such G2532 [2when G3918 3at hand G3588 G2041 1 are we at work].
12 G3756 For not G1063 G5111 do we dare G1469 to approve G2228 or G4793 compare G1438 ourselves G5100 with some G3588 of the ones G1438 commending themselves; G4921 G235 but G1473 [3 that they G1722 6by G1438 7themselves G1438 5themselves G3354 4 are measuring G2532 8and G4793 9comparing G1438 10themselves G1438 11with themselves G3756 1they do not G4920 2notice].
13 G1473 But we G1161 G3780 [2not G1519 4to G3588 5the things G280 6immeasurable G2744 1shall 3boast], G235 but G2596 according to G3588 the G3358 measure G3588 of the G2583 rule G3739 of which G3307 God portioned G3588 G2316 G1473 to us, G3358 a measure G2185 reaching G891 as far as G2532 even G1473 of you.
14 G3756 For not G1063 G5613 as one G3361 not G2185 reaching G1519 [3to G1473 4you G5239 1do we overstretch G1438 2ourselves], G891 for unto G1063 G2532 you even G1473 G5348 we arrive G1722 with G3588 the G2098 good news G3588 of the G5547 Christ;
15 G3756 not G1519 [2in G3588 3things G280 4immeasurable G2744 1boasting] G1722 in G245 another's G2873 toils; G1680 [3hope G1161 1but G2192 2having], G837 increasing G3588 of the G4102 belief G1473 of yours G1722 [2among G1473 3you G3170 1to be magnified], G2596 according to G3588 G2583 our rule G1473 G1519 in G4050 abundance,
16 G1519 [2to G3588 3the ones G5238 4farther G1473 5from you G2097 1to announce good news]; G3756 and not G1722 [2in G245 3another's G2583 4rule G1519 5 already G3588 G2092 6prepared G2744 1to boast].
