2 Corinthians 11:16-17
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.
2 Corinthians 12:11
The Signs of an Apostle
12:11 I have become a fool. You yourselves forced me to do it, for I should have been commended by you. For I lack nothing in comparison 4 to those “super-apostles,” even though I am nothing.
