2 Corinthians 12:3
And I knew such a man (whether in the body or out of the body I cannot tell — God knoweth),
And I know such a man (whether in the body, or apart from the body, I know not; God knoweth),
And I know that such a man—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, [only] God knows—
And I know that this man—whether in the body or away from the body I do not know, God knows—
And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)
I know that this man was caught up into paradise and that he heard unspeakable words that were things no one is allowed to repeat. I don’t know whether it was in the body or apart from the body. God knows.
And I know that such a man — whether in the body or apart from the body I don’t know, God knows —
As I said, only God really knows if this man was in his body at the time.
And I know such a man, (whether in [the] body or out of the body I know not, God knows;)
And I know such a man— whether in the body or apart from the body, I do not know. God knows—
And I know such a man (whether in the body, or out of the body, I know not: God knoweth),
And I know that this man was taken up to paradise. I don’t know if he was in his body or away from his body, but he heard things that he is not able to explain. He heard things that no one is allowed to tell.
And I know that this man was caught up into paradise—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows—
And I know that this man was caught up into paradise—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows—
And I know that this man was ·taken up [caught up; snatched away] to paradise [C another name for heaven; Luke 23:43; Rev. 2:7]. I don’t know if he was in his body or away from his body, but God knows. He heard things ·he is not able to explain [inexpressible; ineffable], things that no human is allowed to tell.
And I know such a man (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth.)
I know that this person
I repeat, I know that this man was snatched to Paradise (again, I do not know whether this actually happened or whether it was a vision—only God knows), and there he heard things which cannot be put into words, things that human lips may not speak.
I know that this man—whether in the body or out of the body I don’t know, God knows—
And I know that this man was taken up to paradise. I don’t know if he was in his body or away from his body. But he heard things he is not able to explain. He heard things that no man is allowed to tell.
I know that this man—whether in his body or outside of his body, I do not know, but God knows—
No, I don’t think it’s really a good thing for me to boast at all, but I will just mention visions and revelations of the Lord himself. I know a man in Christ who, fourteen years ago, had the experience of being caught up into the third Heaven. I don’t know whether it was an actual physical experience, only God knows that. All I know is that this man was caught up into paradise. (I repeat, I do not know whether this was a physical happening or not, God alone knows.) This man heard words that cannot, and indeed must not, be translated into human speech. I am honestly proud of an experience like that, but I have made up my mind not to boast of anything personal, except of what may be called my weaknesses. If I should want to boast I should certainly be no fool to be proud of my experiences, and I should be speaking nothing but the sober truth. Yet I am not going to do so, for I don’t want anyone to think more highly of me than his experience of me and what he hears of me should warrant. So tremendous, however, were the revelations that God gave me that, in order to prevent my becoming absurdly conceited, I was given a physical handicap—one of Satan’s angels—to harass me and effectually stop any conceit. Three times I begged the Lord for it to leave me, but his reply has been, “My grace is enough for you: for where there is weakness, my power is shown the more completely.” Therefore, I have cheerfully made up my mind to be proud of my weaknesses, because they mean a deeper experience of the power of Christ. I can even enjoy weaknesses, suffering, privations, persecutions and difficulties for Christ’s sake. For my very weakness makes me strong in him.
And I know such a man (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell; God knows)
And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)
And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)
and I know this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, God knows—
Fourteen years ago I was taken up to heaven* for a visit. Don’t ask me whether my body was there or just my spirit, for I don’t know; only God can answer that. But anyway, there I was in paradise,
You’ve forced me to talk this way, and I do it against my better judgment. But now that we’re at it, I may as well bring up the matter of visions and revelations that God gave me. For instance, I know a man who, fourteen years ago, was seized by Christ and swept in ecstasy to the heights of heaven. I really don’t know if this took place in the body or out of it; only God knows. I also know that this man was hijacked into paradise—again, whether in or out of the body, I don’t know; God knows. There he heard the unspeakable spoken, but was forbidden to tell what he heard. This is the man I want to talk about. But about myself, I’m not saying another word apart from the humiliations.
And I knew that such a man—whether in the body or out of the body I cannot tell, God knows—
And I know that · this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, only God knows—
I know that this person
And I know that this person (whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows)
And I know how such a man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, God knows—
And I know that this man was taken up to paradise. I don’t know if he was in his body or away from his body, but God knows. He heard things he is not able to explain, things that no human is allowed to tell.
And I know that this man (whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, God knows)
I don’t know if that man was in his body or out of it. Only God knows. But I do know that
And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows—
And I know that this man – whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows –
And I know such a man—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows—
I say it again, I know this man was taken up. But I do not know if his body or just his spirit was taken up. Only God knows.
Yes, only God knows whether I was in my body or outside my body. But I do know
And I know that such a person—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know; God knows—
And I know that such a person—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know; God knows—
And I know that such a person—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know; God knows—
And I know that such a person—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know; God knows—
And I have da’as that such a man, whether in or out of the basar I do not have da’as, Hashem knows,
And I know that this man was caught up into Paradise—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows—
And I know that this man was caught up into Paradise—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows—
I know such a man (whether in the body or outside of the body I don’t know—God knows)—
This man was caught up into paradise (let me say it again, whether this was an in- or out-of-body experience I don’t know; only God knows), and he heard inexpressible words—words a mortal man is forbidden to utter.
I know such a man (whether in the body, or outside of the body, I don’t know; God knows),
I do know this. He was taken up into the place where God lives. And again I say, I do not know if he was in his body or not. God knows if he was.
And I know such a man; whether in body, or out of body, I know not, God knoweth;
and I have known such a man -- whether in the body, whether out of the body, I have not known, God hath known, --
