MNT(i) 13 I, however, will not indulge in undue boasting, but will confine it within the limits of the sphere to which God has assigned me—a sphere which reaches even to you. 14 For I am not overstepping the limits of my authority, as though I reached you not; since I have already come even as far as Corinth to proclaim the gospel of Christ. 15 I am not "boasting beyond measure in the labors of others," but it is my hope that, as your faith goes on increasing among yourselves, by the enlargement of my appointed limits, 16 I may carry the gospel to countries beyond you; and not be boasting of work made ready to my hand within another man's limit. 17 Meanwhile. Let him who boasts, boast in the Lord. 18 For a man is proved worthy, not by his self-commendation, but when he is commended by the Lord.
