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:
Not boasting of things without our
measure, that is
, of other men's labours; but having hope, when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule abundantly,
To preach the gospel in the regions
beyond you, and
not to boast in another man's line of things made ready to our hand.
But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth.
