2 Corinthians 11:4-6

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

tn Or “preaches.”

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

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

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

tn Or “you endure it very well.”

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.

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