2 Corinthians 10:14
For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we reached not unto you. For we have come as far as to you also in preaching the Gospel of Christ,
For we stretch not ourselves overmuch, as though we reached not unto you: for we came even as far as unto you in the gospel of Christ:
We are not overstepping the limits of our province, as if we did not [legitimately] reach to you, for we were the [very] first to come even as far as you with the good news of Christ.
For we are not overstepping the limits of our province and stretching beyond our ability to reach, as though we reached not (had no legitimate mission) to you, for we were [the very first] to come even as far as to you with the good news (the Gospel) of Christ.
For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we reached not unto you: for we are come as far as to you also in preaching the gospel of Christ:
We aren’t going out of bounds, as if our work area doesn’t extend as far as you. We were the first ones to travel as far as Corinth with the gospel of Christ.
We are not overextending our boasting as if we had not reached as far as you; for we did come all the way to you with the Good News of the Messiah.
We are not bragging more than we should. After all, we did bring the message about Christ to you.
For we do not, as not reaching to you, overstretch ourselves, (for we have come to you also in the glad tidings of the Christ;)
For we are not, as-if not reaching to you, overextending ourselves. For we arrived even as far as you in connection with the good-news of Christ!—
For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as if we reached not unto you. For we are come as far as to you in the gospel of Christ.
We would be boasting too much only if we had not already come to you. But we have come to you with the Good News about Christ.
For we are not overextending ourselves, as though we did not reach you. For we were the first to come all the way to you with the gospel of Christ.
For we are not overextending ourselves, as though we did not reach you. For we were the first to come all the way to you with the gospel of Christ.
[L For] We are not ·bragging too much [or going beyond our commission; L overreaching/overextending ourselves], as we would be if we had not already come to you. But we have come to you with the Good News of Christ [C Paul’s opponents claimed the Corinthians were their sphere of ministry; Paul counters that he first brought the Gospel to Corinth (Acts 18)].
For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we had not attained unto you: for even to you also have we come in preaching the Gospel of Christ.
It’s not as though we hadn’t already been to Corinth. We’re not overstating the facts. The fact is that we were the first to arrive in Corinth with the Good News about Christ.
And since you are within those limits, we were not going beyond them when we came to you, bringing the Good News about Christ.
For we are not overextending ourselves, as if we had not reached you, since we have come to you with the gospel of Christ.
We are not bragging too much. We would be bragging too much if we had not already come to you. But we have come to you with the Good News of Christ.
For it is not as though we were overstepping our limits when we came to you. We were the first to reach you with the gospel of the Messiah.
Of course we shouldn’t dare include ourselves in the same class as those who write their own testimonials, or even to compare ourselves with them! All they are doing, of course, is to measure themselves by their own standards or by comparisons within their own circle, and that doesn’t make for accurate estimation, you may be sure. No, we shall not make any wild claims, but simply judge ourselves by that line of duty which God has marked out for us, and that line includes our work on your behalf. We do not exceed our duty when we embrace your interests, for it was our preaching of the Gospel which brought us into contact with you. Our pride is not in matters beyond our proper sphere nor in the labours of other men. No, our hope is that your growing faith will mean the expansion of our sphere of action, so that before long we shall be preaching the Gospel in districts beyond you, instead of being proud of work that has already been done in someone else’s province.
For we do not overextend ourselves by reaching unto you; for we are also come unto you with the gospel of the Christ,
For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we reached not unto you: for we are come as far as to you also in preaching the gospel of Christ:
For we stretch not ourselves beyond our measure, as though we reached not unto you: for we are come as far as to you also in preaching the gospel of Christ:
For we are not overextending ourselves, as if we had not reached you, because we have reached even as far as you with the gospel of Christ,
We are not going too far when we claim authority over you, for we were the first to come to you with the Good News concerning Christ.
We aren’t making outrageous claims here. We’re sticking to the limits of what God has set for us. But there can be no question that those limits reach to and include you. We’re not moving into someone else’s “territory.” We were already there with you, weren’t we? We were the first ones to get there with the Message of Christ, right? So how can there be any question of overstepping our bounds by writing or visiting you?
For we are not overextending ourselves as though we did not reach you, since we have come to you, preaching the gospel of Christ.
For it is not as though we had not come to you, over-reaching ourselves, for we did come even as far as you with the gospel of Christ.
It’s not as though we hadn’t already been to Corinth. We’re not overstating the facts. The fact is that we were the first to arrive in Corinth with the Good News about Christ.
For we are not overreaching ourselves, as though we did not reach you; we indeed first came to you with the gospel of Christ.
For we are not overextending ourselves, as if we did not reach to you, for we were the first to come even as far as you in the gospel of Christ;
We are not bragging too much, as we would be if we had not already come to you. But we have come to you with the Good News of Christ.
For we were not overextending ourselves, as though we did not reach as far as you, because we were the first to reach as far as you with the gospel about Christ.
I am not going too far in my bragging. I would be going too far if I hadn’t come to where you live. But I did get there with the good news about Christ.
We are not going too far in our boasting, as would be the case if we had not come to you, for we did get as far as you with the gospel of Christ.
We are not going too far in our boasting, as would be the case if we had not come to you, for we did get as far as you with the gospel of Christ.
For we are not overextending ourselves (as though our authority did not extend to you), for it was to you that we came with the gospel of Christ;
We did not go farther than we were supposed to go when we came to you. But we did come to you with the Good News of Christ.
We are not reaching beyond these boundaries when we claim authority over you, as if we had never visited you. For we were the first to travel all the way to Corinth with the Good News of Christ.
For we were not overstepping our limits when we reached you; we were the first to come all the way to you with the good news of Christ.
For we were not overstepping our limits when we reached you; we were the first to come all the way to you with the good news of Christ.

For we were not overstepping our limits when we reached you; we were the first to come all the way to you with the good news of Christ.
For we were not getting out of our depth when we reached even as far as you. We were the chalutzim (pioneers) who came with the Besuras HaGeulah of Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach.
For we are not overextending ourselves, as though we did not reach you; we were the first to come all the way to you with the gospel of Christ.
For we are not overextending ourselves, as though we did not reach you; we were the first to come all the way to you with the gospel of Christ.
We are not extending ourselves too far, as if we did not reach you—for we did come even as far as to you with the Good News of Messiah.
For it wasn’t as if we were overreaching into someone else’s territory by reaching out to you. Weren’t we the first ones to bring you the good news of the Anointed One?
For we don’t stretch ourselves too much, as though we didn’t reach to you. For we came even as far as to you with the Good News of Christ,
We are not going farther than we should when we come to you. We were the first to come all the way to you with the good news of Christ.
For we overstretch not forth us, as not stretching to you. For [till] to you we came in the gospel of Christ,
for not as not reaching to you do we stretch ourselves overmuch, for even unto you did we come in the good news of the Christ,
