3:21 So then, no more boasting about mere mortals! 3 For everything belongs to you,
1 tn Or “are still merely human”; Grk “fleshly.” Cf. BDAG 914 s.v. σαρκικός 2, “pert. to being human at a disappointing level of behavior or characteristics, (merely) human.” The same phrase occurs again later in this verse.

3 tn Grk “so then, let no one boast in men.”
