2 Corinthians 10:11-13 Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)

11 Let such a one consider this: that such as we are in word by letters while absent, such ones we are also in deed while present!

For I Do Not Commend Myself Or Compare Myself To Others

12 For we do not dare to class or compare ourselves with some of the ones commending themselves. But they— measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves with themselves— do not understand[a].

And I Do Not Boast In Unmeasured Things Or In The Labors of Others

13 And we will not boast in unmeasured[b] things, but in-relation-to[c] the measure of [d] the standard[e] which God apportioned to us as a measure: to reach as far as even you.


  1. 2 Corinthians 10:12 That is, understand the true reality of the matter, stated in v 18.
  2. 2 Corinthians 10:13 Or, unmeasurable; things beyond measure or without measure.
  3. 2 Corinthians 10:13 Or, based-on.
  4. 2 Corinthians 10:13 That is, consisting of.
  5. 2 Corinthians 10:13 Or, sphere. That is, the measuring rod or the measured out sphere or territory allotted to Paul by God. If Paul did boast, it would be in his own accomplishments as measured by what God gave him to do.
