2 Corinthians 10:11-13 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

11 Let such one think this, that such as we are in word by letters, when we are absent, such will we be also in deed, when we are present.

12 [a]For we [b]dare not make ourselves of the number, or to compare ourselves to them, which praise themselves: but they understand not that they measure themselves with [c]themselves, and [d]compare themselves with themselves.

13 But we will not rejoice of things, which are not within our [e]measure, but according to the measure of the line, whereof God hath distributed unto us a measure to attain even unto you.


  1. 2 Corinthians 10:12 Being constrained to refel the foolish brags of certain ambitious men, he witnesseth, that they are able to bring nothing, but that they falsely persuade themselves of themselves: and as for himself, although he brags of excellent things, yet he will not pass the bounds which God hath measured him out, according whereunto he came even unto them in preaching the Gospel of Christ, and trusteth that he shall go further, when they have so profited that he shall not need to tarry any longer amongst them to instruct them. And hereunto is added an amplification, in that he never succeeded other men in their labors.
  2. 2 Corinthians 10:12 This is spoken after a taunting sort.
  3. 2 Corinthians 10:12 Upon a vain persuasion that they have of themselves, they take upon them they care not what.
  4. 2 Corinthians 10:12 They condemn all others, and measure all their doings only by themselves.
  5. 2 Corinthians 10:13 Of those things which God hath not measured to me.
