2 Corinthians 10:18; 2 Corinthians 3:1; 2 Corinthians 12:6; Proverbs 27:2

18 For it is lnot the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one mwhom the Lord commends.

Ministers of the New Covenant

qAre we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, ras some do, sletters of recommendation to you, or from you?

though if I should wish to boast, eI would not be a fool, for I would be speaking the truth; but I refrain from it, so that no one may think more of me than he sees in me or hears from me.

Let zanother praise you, and not your own mouth;

a stranger, and not your own lips.
