For not he who commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord commends. 2 Corinthians 10:18

This chapter closes out with words that are alluded to throughout his writings and even throughout the Bible itself. He just said that “…he who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” The reason for this is that it is “not he who commends himself” who is approved.… Read the rest

But “he who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 10:17

As the chapter prepares to close, Paul gives this verse. It is a citation which he draws from Jeremiah 9:23, 24 –

“Thus says the Lord:
‘Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,

…to preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man’s sphere of accomplishment. 2 Corinthians 10:16

The words, “…to preach the gospel in the regions beyond you” are given in connection to the words of the previous verse which said, “…as your faith is increased, we shall be greatly enlarged by you in our sphere.” It is likely that Paul is saying that as the Corinthians grow in their faith, his ministry will benefit as it stretches out into other areas.… Read the rest

…not boasting of things beyond measure, that is, in other men’s labors, but having hope, that as your faith is increased, we shall be greatly enlarged by you in our sphere, 2 Corinthians 10:15

In just the previous verse, Paul noted that his sphere of influence extended to those in Corinth, even those who opposed him.… Read the rest

For we are not overextending ourselves (as though our authority did not extend to you), for it was to you that we came with the gospel of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:14

Paul just noted that the sphere of influence which he and his fellow workers encompassed was one which God had appointed, and that sphere also included those at Corinth.… Read the rest
