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.

1 tn Or “am foolish.”

2 tn Grk “with this confidence of boasting.” The genitive καυχήσεως (kauchsew") has been translated as an attributed genitive (the noun in the genitive gives an attribute of the noun modified).
