2 Corinthians 4:2-4

Context
4:2 But we have rejected 1  shameful hidden deeds, 2  not behaving 3  with deceptiveness 4  or distorting the word of God, but by open proclamation of the truth we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience before God. 4:3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled only to those who are perishing, 4:4 among whom the god of this age has blinded the minds of those who do not believe 5  so they would not see the light of the glorious gospel 6  of Christ, 7  who is the image of God.

1 tn L&N 13.156; the word can also mean “to assert opposition to,” thus here “we have denounced” (L&N 33.220).

2 tn Grk “the hidden things [deeds] of shame”; here αἰσχύνης (aiscunh") has been translated as an attributive genitive.

3 tn Or “not conducting ourselves”; Grk “not walking” (a common NT idiom for conduct, way of life, or behavior).

4 tn Or “craftiness.”

5 tn Or “of unbelievers.”

6 tn Grk “the gospel of the glory”; δόξης (doxhs) has been translated as an attributive genitive.

7 tn Or “so that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ would not be evident to them” (L&N 28.37).
