2 Corinthians 11:9-12

Context
11:9 When 1  I was with you and was in need, I was not a burden to anyone, for the brothers who came from Macedonia fully supplied my needs. 2  I 3  kept myself from being a burden to you in any way, and will continue to do so. 11:10 As the truth of Christ is in me, this boasting of mine 4  will not be stopped 5  in the regions of Achaia. 11:11 Why? Because I do not love you? God knows I do! 6  11:12 And what I am doing I will continue to do, so that I may eliminate any opportunity for those who want a chance to be regarded as our equals 7  in the things they boast about.

1 tn Grk “you, and when.” A new sentence was started here in the translation.

3 tn Grk “needs, and I kept.” A new sentence was started here in the translation.

4 tn That is, that Paul offers the gospel free of charge to the Corinthians (see 2 Cor 11:7).

5 tn Or “silenced.”

6 tn Grk “God knows!” The words “I do” are supplied for clarity. Direct objects were often omitted in Greek when clear from the context.
