10:9 I say this, that I may not seem to terrify you by letters - Threatening more than I can perform.

10:10 His bodily presence is weak - His stature, says St. Chrysostom, was low, his body crooked, and his head bald.

10:12 For we presume not - A strong irony. To equal ourselves - As partners of the same office. Or to compare ourselves - As partakers of the same labour. They among themselves limiting themselves - Choosing and limiting their provinces according to their own fancy.

10:13 But we will not, like them, boastingly extend ourselves beyond our measure, but according to the measure of the province which God hath allotted us - To me, in particular, as the apostle of the gentiles. A measure which reaches even unto you - God allotted to each apostle his province, and the measure or bounds thereof.
