“And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)”
King James Version (KJV)
12:3 Yea, I knew such a man - That at another time.
2Co 12:3 I knew such a man. "Know", as in the Revised Version. Why does he not use the first person? Because it would seem more like he was glorying in his own exaltation.
