2 Corinthians 1:12-14 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
II. The Crisis Between Paul and the Corinthians
A. Past Relationships[a]
Paul’s Sincerity and Constancy. 12 [b]For our boast is this, the testimony of our conscience that we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you, with the simplicity and sincerity of God, [and] not by human wisdom but by the grace of God. 13 For we write you nothing but what you can read and understand, and I hope that you will understand completely, 14 as you have come to understand us partially, that we are your boast as you also are ours, on the day of [our] Lord Jesus.
