2 Corinthians 1:12

12 For our boasting is this, the testimony of our 1aconscience, that in 2singleness and 3bsincerity of God, not in 4fleshly cwisdom but in the 5dgrace of God, we have conducted ourselves in the world, and more abundantly toward you.


122 Or, simplicity. Some MSS read, holiness. The apostles' situation of death forced them to be simple, that is, not to base their confidence on themselves or on their natural human ability to work out a solution to their difficult situation. This was the testimony of their conscience and was their confidence (v. 15).
