2 Corinthians 11:16-17

Context
Paul’s Sufferings for Christ

11:16 I say again, let no one think that I am a fool. 1  But if you do, then at least accept me as a fool, so that I too may boast a little. 11:17 What I am saying with this boastful confidence 2  I do not say the way the Lord would. 3  Instead it is, as it were, foolishness.

2 Corinthians 12:11
