2 Corinthians 3:5
It is not that we think we can do anything on our own.
Our only power & success come from God. (NLT 1st Ed.)
Not that we are sufficiently qualified in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us,
but our sufficiency and qualifications come from God. (Amplified)
I don’t mean that we are able to do anything good ourselves.
It is God who makes us able to do all that we do. (ERV)
Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us,
but our sufficiency is from God, (ESV)
We dare to say such things because of the confidence we have in God through Christ,
and not because we are confident of our own powers. (J B Phillips)
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves;
but our sufficiency is of God (KJV)
Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves,
but our competence comes from God. (NIV)
Don’t be mistaken; in and of ourselves we know we have little to offer,
but any competence or value we have comes from God. (The Voice)
The longer I live, & the more I see, I understand that anything & everything we are or are able to be & do is dependent on one thing, & 1 thing only:
the favor of God.
No matter how you translate it, it's all stands &/or falls because of one thing only:
iow, His ability to make us able to be & do
Think about that today...
