“But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we.”
King James Version (KJV)
11:12 Who desire any occasion - To censure me. That wherein they boast, they may be found even as we - They boasted of being burdensome to no man. But it was a vain boast in them, though not in the apostle.
2Co 11:12 That I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion. One reason that he did this was to give no excuse to these opposers to call on the church to maintain them. He would force them by his example to be found even as we, that is, to maintain themselves.
