2Corinthians 12:1 It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.

2Corinthians 12:2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, whether in the body, I cannot tell or whether out of the body, I cannot tell.("this is because man's information of either the internal world or the external world is the same simultaneously."....Grigori Grabovoi), God knows such an one caught up to the third heaven.

2Corinthians 12:3 And I knew such a man, whether in the body or out of the body, I cannot tell, God knows.

2Corinthians 12:4 How that he was caught up into paradise and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter..(?)

2Corinthians 12:5 Of such an one will I glory, yet of myself I will not glory but in mine infirmities.

2Corinthians 12:6 For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool, for I will say the truth, but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he sees me to be, or that he hears of me.

2Corinthians 12:7 And lest I should be exalted above measure.(see 'Pride').through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

2Corinthians 12:8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice.(Paul was three times after praying, waiting for an answer that would well up in his mind from the Creator; often answers come differently than we might expect), that it might depart from me.

2Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for you. For my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the powerof Christ.(the Word).may rest upon me.

2Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me.(how was this communicated to Paul, who wrote this book of the Bible?), My grace.(the kindness and attention of the Creator toward something).is sufficient.(original for word 'sufficient' is 'source of unfailing strength'; more on why the Creator allowed this on Paul).for you.(more on.'grace is sufficient'). For my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power.(original 'strong ability to do':.1Corinthians 12:28-31).of Christ.(Christ is the Creator called the Word:.1John 1:1-3).may rest upon me.(original for 'may rest upon' is 'to pitch a tent upon'; that is, surrround him with the presence of the Creator:.Exodus 3:13,14).

2Corinthians 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions.(persecutions in the original means 'to be mistreated, to flee away'), in distresses for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then am I strong.(original for 'strong' is 'the power is available', that is, if one feels he has no need for more, he limits the supply; the Creator is fitting us into a hierarchyin His family).

2Corinthians 12:14 Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you, for I seek not yours, but you. For the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.

2Corinthians 12:18 I desired Titus, and with him I sent a brother. Did Titus make a gain of you? Walked we not in the same spirit? Walked we not in the same steps?

2Corinthians 12:19 Again, think you that we excuse ourselves unto you? We speak before God.(before God meaning being in front of God, that is, God knows all, therefor we speak being well aware that God knows what we are saying) in Christ, but we do all things, dearly beloved, for your edifying.(building you up, encouraging you in the spiritual things of God, the Conscious Infinite Intelligence of the universe).

2Corinthians 12:20 For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would and that I shall be found unto you such as you would not; lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults.

2Corinthians 13:1 This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.

2Corinthians 13:3 Since you seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, which to you ward is not weak, but is mighty in you.

2Corinthians 13:4 For though he was crucified through weakness.(Philippians 2:7,8), yet he lives by the power of God. For we also.(Paul and those with him).are weak in him.(2Corinthians 12:9), but we live with him by the power of God toward you.

2Corinthians 13:5.Examine yourselves, whether you be in the faith. Prove your own selves. Know you not your own selves, how that Emmanuel the Christ is in you, except you be reprobates.

2Corinthians 13:5.Examine yourselves, whether you be in the faith. Prove your own selves. Know you not your own selves, how that Emmanuel the Christ is in you.(or, as closer to the original 'do you not recognize Emmanuel the Christ in yourselves?'; and what is Emmanuel the Christ other than the high consciousness of what is called the Father that He came to reveal? Paul is saying 'Don't you see the difference between high consciousness and low consciousness' in you?), except you be reprobates.(meaning, have chosen to not have any part of it:.Romans 1:28)? The Corinthians back then were a 'go along with the status quo' sort of group, seemingly lacking introspection, like so many today who just go along with whatever's out there which can be used in their life while missing life's spiritual part. They carry on living on a pathway that eventually proves disadvantageous for them..(?)

2Corinthians 13:7 Now I pray to God that you do no evil; not that we should appear approved.(as though it was because of us getting some honor or satisfaction from it, but we are sincere in just wanting you to be your best at all times), but that you should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates.(no matter how you may regard us, it doesn't matter, just do the best you can and forget about us, if you don't like us.

2Corinthians 13:9 For we are glad when we are weak and you are strong.(*). And this also we wish, even your perfection.

2Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace and the God of love and peace shall be with.(original for 'with' is 'meta' in the Greek meaning 'after', 'behind', 'beside', 'beyond', 'above', 'change', 'transformation', 'a higher developmental stage' and such is God, everything, everywhere; there is no place you can go where God is not).you..(God is you, you are God, when you are in peace) 

2Corinthians 13:12 Greet one another with an holy kiss.(Romans 16:16).

2Corinthians 13:14 The grace of the Lord Emmanuel the Christ and the love of God and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen..(the second epistle to the Corinthians was written by Titus and Lucas from Philippi, a city of Macedonia, an ancient kingdom of northern Greece)

....next New Testament book is Galatians
