2 Corinthians 11:19
For ye suffer fools gladly, seeing ye yourselves are wise!
For ye bear with the foolish gladly, being wise yourselves.
For you, being so wise, gladly tolerate and accept the foolish [like me]!
For you readily and gladly bear with the foolish, since you are so smart and wise yourselves!
For ye suffer fools gladly, seeing ye yourselves are wise.
Because you, who are so wise, are happy to put up with fools.
For since you yourselves are so wise, you gladly put up with fools!
And since you are so smart, you will gladly put up with a fool.
For ye bear fools readily, being wise.
For with-pleasure you bear-with the unwise, being wise.
For you gladly suffer the foolish; whereas yourselves are wise.
You are wise, so you will gladly be patient with fools!
For you gladly bear with fools, being wise yourselves!
For you gladly bear with fools, being wise yourselves!
You are wise, so you will gladly be patient with fools! [C Paul sarcastically suggests that the “wise” Corinthians, who listened to the false apostles, would surely listen to his “foolishness.”]
For ye suffer fools gladly, because that ye are wise.
You’re wise, so you’ll gladly put up with fools.
You yourselves are so wise, and so you gladly tolerate fools!
For you, being so wise, gladly put up with fools!
You are wise, so you will gladly be patient with fools!
You are wise, so you will gladly be tolerant of fools.
I am not now speaking as the Lord commands me but as a fool who must be “in on” this business of boasting. Since all the others are so proud of themselves, let me do a little boasting as well. From your heights of superior wisdom I am sure you can smile tolerantly on a fool. Oh, you’re tolerant all right! You don’t mind, do you, if a man takes away your liberty, spends your money, makes a fool of you or even smacks your face? I am almost ashamed to say that I never did brave strong things like that to you. Yet in whatever particular they enjoy such confidence I (speaking as a fool, remember) have just as much confidence.
For ye suffer fools gladly, seeing ye yourselves are wise.
For ye suffer fools gladly, seeing ye yourselves are wise.
For ye suffer fools gladly, seeing ye yourselves are wise.
For because you are wise, you put up with foolish people gladly!
(You think you are so wise—yet you listen gladly to those fools; you don’t mind at all when they make you their slaves and take everything you have, and take advantage of you, and put on airs, and slap you in the face.
Let me come back to where I started—and don’t hold it against me if I continue to sound a little foolish. Or if you’d rather, just accept that I am a fool and let me rant on a little. I didn’t learn this kind of talk from Christ. Oh, no, it’s a bad habit I picked up from the three-ring preachers that are so popular these days. Since you sit there in the judgment seat observing all these shenanigans, you can afford to humor an occasional fool who happens along. You have such admirable tolerance for impostors who rob your freedom, rip you off, steal you blind, put you down—even slap your face! I shouldn’t admit it to you, but our stomachs aren’t strong enough to tolerate that kind of stuff.
For you tolerate fools gladly, seeing you yourselves are wise.
For gladly you put up with · fools, since you are so wise!
You’re wise, so you’ll gladly put up with fools.
For you gladly put up with fools, since you are wise yourselves.

After all, you think you are so wise, but you enjoy putting up with fools!

meanwhile, you—so wise, so tolerant—gladly bear this kind of foolishness.

You listen to a man even if he makes slaves of you, even if he spends all your money, even if he catches you in a trap, even if he is proud of himself, even if he slaps you in the face.
For ye suffer gladly unwise men, when ye yourselves be wise.
for gladly do ye bear with the fools -- being wise,
