2 Corinthians 11:16-18

2 Corinthians 11:16-18 NIV

I repeat: Let no one take me for a fool. But if you do, then tolerate me just as you would a fool, so that I may do a little boasting. In this self-confident boasting I am not talking as the Lord would, but as a fool. Since many are boasting in the way the world does, I too will boast.
NIV: New International Version
