2 Corinthians 10:7-11 Mounce Reverse-Interlinear New Testament (MOUNCE)

You are looking blepō · ho at kata outward prosōpon appearances . If ei anyone tis has persuaded peithō himself heautou that he belongs eimi to Christ Christos, he should remind logizomai himself epi heautou that hoti just as kathōs he autos belongs to Christ Christos, so houtōs also kai do we hēmeis. For gar even te if ean I boast about kauchaomai it tis, and more than that perissoteros, about peri the ho authority exousia which hos the ho Lord kyrios gave didōmi us hēmeis for eis building oikodomē you up and kai not ou for eis tearing kathairesis you hymeis down, I will not ou be ashamed. I do not want to hina seem dokeō as hōs though I am trying to frighten ekphobeō you hymeis with dia my ho letters epistolē. 10 For hoti some are saying phēmi, “ His ho letters epistolē are weighty barys and kai forceful ischuros, but de his ho physical sōma presence parousia · ho is weak asthenēs, and kai his ho rhetoric logos amounts to nothing exoutheneō.” 11 Let logizomai such a person toioutos consider logizomai this houtos, · ho that hoti what hoios we are eimi in ho word logos through dia letters epistolē when absent apeimi, such toioutos we also kai are in ho act ergon when present pareimi.

2 Corinthians 10:7-11 Expanded Bible (EXB)

You ·must look at the facts before you [or are looking only at outward appearances]. If you ·feel sure [are confident] that you belong to Christ, you must ·remember [consider again] that we belong to Christ just as you do. ·It is true that we brag freely [L If I boast too much…] about the authority the Lord gave us. But this authority is to build you up, not to tear you down. So I will not be ashamed. I do not want you to think I am trying to scare you with my letters. 10 Some people say [v. 1], “Paul’s letters are ·powerful [forceful] and ·sound important [weighty; or demanding], but ·when he is with us, he [his physical presence] is weak. And his ·speaking is nothing [speaking skills are deplorable; or speeches are worthless; C Greek culture highly valued rhetorical skill].” 11 They should ·know [consider] this: ·The authority we show by letter [L What we are in word] while we are ·away [absent], we will ·demonstrate in our actions [L be in deed] when we ·come to you [L are present].
