“For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the Lord hath given us for edification, and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed:”
King James Version (KJV)
10:8 I should not be ashamed - As having said more than I could make good.
2Co 10:8 Though I should boast . . . I should not be ashamed. A comparison of claims to privilege and authority would not put him to shame. Not for your destruction. His power and authority were given to save men; he desires not to have to use them to fulminate censures.
