    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:17

    Mas el que se gloría, gloríese en el Seor.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 10:17

    Verse 17. He that glorieth, let him
    glory in the Lord.] Instead of boasting or exulting even in your own success in preaching the Gospel, as none can be successful without the especial blessing of God, let God who gave the blessing have the glory. Even the genuine apostle, who has his commission immediately from God himself, takes no praise to himself from the prosperity of his work, but gives it all to God. How little cause then have your uncommissioned men to boast, to whom God has assigned no province, and who only boast in another man's line of things made ready to their hand!

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. But he that glorieth, let him
    glory in the Lord .] Not in himself, nor in his outward circumstances of life, or inward endowments of mind; not in his natural or acquired parts; not in his wisdom, knowledge, learning, and eloquence; nor in his own righteousness, labours, and services, much less in other men's labours; nor in his own sense of himself; nor in the opinion and popular applause of others; but in the Lord Jesus Christ, as the author and donor of all gifts, natural and spiritual; in his wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption; and in his judgment and approbation of men and things, which sense the following words direct unto.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-18 - If we would compare ourselves with others who
    excel us, this would be good method to keep us humble. The apostle fixes a good rule for his conduct; namely, not to boast of things without his measure, which wa the measure God had distributed to him. There is not a more fruitfu source of error, than to judge of persons and opinions by our ow prejudices. How common is it for persons to judge of their ow religious character, by the opinions and maxims of the world aroun them! But how different is the rule of God's word! And of all flattery self-flattery is the worst. Therefore, instead of praising ourselves we should strive to approve ourselves to God. In a word, let us glor in the Lord our salvation, and in all other things only as evidences of his love, or means of promoting his glory. Instead of praisin ourselves, or seeking the praise of men, let us desire that honou which cometh from God only __________________________________________________________________
