2 Corinthians 11:16-18 Modern English Version (MEV)
Paul’s Sufferings as an Apostle
16 I say again, let no one think that I am a fool. Otherwise, at least receive me as a fool, so that I also may boast a little. 17 What I speak, I speak not according to the Lord, but as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting. 18 Seeing that many boast according to the flesh, I also will boast.
