2 Corinthians 10:13-16

Moffatt(i) 13 and so my boasting never goes beyond the limit — it is determined by the limits of the sphere marked out for me by God. That sphere stretches to include yourselves; 14 I am not overstepping the limit, as if you lay beyond my sphere; I was the very first to reach you with the gospel of Christ. 15 I do not boast beyond my limits in a sphere where other men have done the work; my hope rather is that the growth of your faith will allow me to enlarge the range of my appointed sphere 16 and preach the gospel in the lands that lie beyond you, instead of boasting within another's province over work that is already done.
