2 Corinthians 11:21

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers

King James Version

I speak as concerning reproach, as though we had been weak. Howbeit whereinsoever any is bold, (I speak foolishly,) I am bold also.
New King James Version

To our shame I say that we were too weak for that! But in whatever anyone is bold – I speak foolishly – I am bold also.
New American Standard Bible

To my shame I must say that we have been weak by comparison. But in whatever respect anyone is bold (I speak in foolishness), I am just as bold myself.
New International Version

To my shame I admit that we were too weak for that! What anyone else dares to boast about – I am speaking as a fool – I also dare to boast about.
The Amplified Bible

To my discredit, I must say, we have shown ourselves too weak [for you to show such tolerance of us and for us to do strong, courageous things like that to you]! But in whatever any person is bold and dares [to boast] – mind you, I am speaking in this foolish (witless) way – I also am bold and dare [to boast].
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

I am speaking by way of disparagement [humbly of myself], as though, as for ourselves, we have been weak. And yet, whereinsoever a man is bold, I am speaking in foolishness, as for myself, I am bold also.
Phillips’ Modern English

I am almost ashamed to say that I never did brave, strong things like that to you. Yet in whatever particular they parade such confidence I (speaking as a fool, remember) can do the same.
Williams’ Language of the People

I am ashamed to say that I was, as it were, so weak in the matter. And yet in whatever respect anyone else is daring to boast – I am talking like a fool – I too will dare to boast.
