“I am become a fool in glorying; ye have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest apostles, though I be nothing.”
King James Version (KJV)
12:11 Though I am nothing - Of myself.
2Co 12:11 I am become a fool in glorying. As he looks back on what he has written he finds that he has done what he condemned as a folly, commended himself. Ye have compelled me. Compelled to; a thing that ought not to have been necessary, for the Corinthians ought to have commended him. Behind the very chiefest apostles. The false teachers who had claimed at Corinth to be leading apostles.
