2Co 10:13 We will not boast of things without [our] measure. Will not, like those just alluded to, suffer our boasting to carry us beyond all bounds. But according to the measure, etc. We confine ourselves simply to the line of action assigned to us by the Lord. To reach even unto you. The line assigned by the Lord sent Paul to the Gentiles (Ga 2:7-9).
