Second Corinthians 10

10:1 Now I Paul myself beseech you, by the meekness and
 gentleness of Christ, who in presence [am] base among you, but
 being absent am bold towards you:
10:2 But I beseech [you], that I may not be bold when I am
 present with that confidence, with which I think to be bold
 against some, who think of us as if we walked according to the
10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to
 the flesh:
10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal, but
 mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that
 exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into
 captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
10:6 And having in a readiness to avenge all disobedience, when
 your obedience is fulfilled.
10:7 Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? If any
 man trusteth to himself that he is Christ's, let him of himself
 think this again, that, as he [is] Christ's, even so [are] we
10:8 For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority,
 which the Lord hath given us for edification, and not for your
 destruction, I should not be ashamed:
10:9 That I may not seem as if I would terrify you by letters.
10:10 For [his] letters (say they) [are] weighty and powerful;
 but [his] bodily presence [is] weak, and [his] speech
10:11 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.
10:12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare
 ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring
 themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among
 themselves, are not wise.
10:13 But we will not boast of things without [our] measure, but
 according to the measure of the rule which God hath distributed
 to us, a measure to reach even to you.
10:14 For we stretch not ourselves beyond [our measure], as
 though we reached not to you; for we are come as far as to you
 also in [preaching] the gospel of Christ:
10:15 Not boasting of things without [our] measure, [that is],
 of other men's labors; but having hope, when your faith is
 increased, that we shall be enlarged by you, according to our
 rule abundantly,
10:16 To preach the gospel in the [regions] beyond you, [and]
 not to boast in another man's line of things made ready to our
10:17 But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
10:18 For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom
 the Lord commendeth.
