2 Corinthians 11:4-6

11:4 For if someone comes and proclaims 1  another Jesus different from the one we proclaimed, 2  or if you receive a different spirit than the one you received, 3  or a different gospel than the one you accepted, 4  you put up with it well enough! 5  11:5 For I consider myself not at all inferior to those “super-apostles.” 6  11:6 And even if I am unskilled 7  in speaking, yet I am certainly not so in knowledge. Indeed, we have made this plain to you in everything in every way.

1 tn Or “preaches.”

2 tn Grk “another Jesus whom we have not proclaimed.”

3 tn Grk “a different spirit which you did not receive.”

4 tn Grk “a different gospel which you did not accept.”

5 tn Or “you endure it very well.”

6 tn The implicit irony in Paul’s remark is brought out well by the TEV: “I do not think that I am the least bit inferior to those very special so-called ‘apostles’ of yours!”

sn The ‘super-apostles’ refers either (1) to the original apostles (the older interpretation) or (2) more probably, to Paul’s opponents in Corinth, in which case the designation is ironic.

7 sn Unskilled in speaking means not professionally trained as a rhetorician.
