“For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:4 I am not conscious to myself of anything evil; yet am I not hereby justified - I depend not on this, as a sufficient justification of myself in God's account. But he that judgeth me is the Lord - By his sentence I am to stand or fall.
1Co 4:4 For I know nothing by myself. In the Revised Version, "against myself". In his own judgment he had been a faithful steward at Corinth, but that did not justify him, for he must be judged by the Lord. To the Lord, then, he must give a satisfactory account.
