2 Corinthians 10:12-18
New American Standard Bible
12 For we do not presume to rank or compare ourselves with [a]some of those who commend themselves; but when they [b]measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they have no understanding. 13 But we will not boast beyond our measure, but [c]within the measure of the [d]domain which God assigned to us as a measure, to reach even as far as you. 14 For we are not overextending ourselves, as if we did not reach to you, for we were the first to come even as far as you in the gospel of Christ; 15 not boasting beyond our measure, that is, in other people’s labors, but with the hope that as your faith grows, we will be, [e]within our [f]domain, enlarged even more by you, 16 so as to preach the gospel even to the regions beyond you, and not to boast [g]in what has been accomplished in the domain of another. 17 But the one who boasts is to boast in the Lord. 18 For it is not the one who commends himself that is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends.
