2 Corinthians 4 ©
Paul declareth his unwearied zeal and integrity in preaching the gospel; so that if any see not the truth of it, it must be owing to their corrupt hearts, not to want of clear light. The weakness and sufferings he was exposed to redounded to the praise of God's power. That which animated him in undergoing them for the church's sake was the assurance of a more exceeding and eternal reward.
bBut have renounced the hidden things of 1dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of cthe truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
In whom fthe god of this world hath gblinded the minds of them which believe not, lest hthe light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is ithe image of God, should shine unto them.
For God, kwho commanded the light to shine out of darkness, 2hath lshined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God min the face of Jesus Christ.
