2 Corinthians 10

Introduction

Overview

2 Corinthians 10:1, Against the false apostles, who disgraced the weakness of his person and bodily presence, he shows the spiritual might and authority with which he was armed against all adverse powers; 2 Corinthians 10:7, assuring them that at his coming he will be found as mighty in word as he is now in writing, being absent; 2 Corinthians 10:12, and withal taxing them for reaching out themselves beyond their compass, and vaunting themselves of other men’s labours.
