LITV(i) 13 But we will not boast beyond measure, but according to measure of the rule which the God of measure distributed to us, to reach even to you. 14 For we do not overstretch ourselves as if not reaching to you, for we also came to you in the gospel of Christ, 15 not boasting beyond measure in the labors of others, but having hope that the growing faith among you will be made larger according to our rule, to overflowing, 16 in order to preach the gospel to that beyond you, not to boast in another's rule in things ready. 17 "But the one glorying, let him glory in" the "Lord." Jer. 9:24 18 For not the one commending himself is the one approved, but the one whom the Lord commends.
