    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:5

    De ste tal me gloriar, mas de mí mismo en nada me gloriar, sino en mis flaquezas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 12:5

    Verse 5. Of such a one will I
    glory] Through modesty he does not mention himself, though the account can be understood of no other person; for, did he mean any other, the whole account would be completely irrelevant.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 5. Of such an one will I
    glory , etc..] The apostle in great modesty seems to speak of some other person, and not himself, as caught up into the third heaven, when he yet means himself; and does as it were distinguish himself from himself; himself in paradise from himself on earth; his sense is, that though he might lawfully glory of such a person so highly exalted and favoured, yet since this was his own case, he chose to forbear, and say no more of it: yet of myself I will not glory ; though he could, and might, and did glory in the Lord, who had done such great things for him; as that he was in Christ, and knew himself to be so, had been rapt up into heaven, and heard things unutterable; yet he would not glory of these things as from himself, as owing to any merit or worthiness of his, but as instances of mere favour, grace, and goodness; if he gloried of anything of himself in his present state and condition, it should be of his weaknesses: but in mine infirmities ; not his sinful ones, for these he mourned over, and was humbled before God and man under a sense of; but his many pressing difficulties of life, heavy reproaches, very great afflictions, and violent persecutions he endured for Christ's sake; (see 2 Corinthians 12:10).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-6 - There can be no doubt the
    apostle speaks of himself. Whether heavenl things were brought down to him, while his body was in a trance, as in the case of ancient prophets; or whether his soul was dislodged from the body for a time, and taken up into heaven, or whether he was take up, body and soul together, he knew not. We are not capable, nor is it fit we should yet know, the particulars of that glorious place an state. He did not attempt to publish to the world what he had hear there, but he set forth the doctrine of Christ. On that foundation the church is built, and on that we must build our faith and hope. An while this teaches us to enlarge our expectations of the glory tha shall be revealed, it should render us contented with the usual method of learning the truth and will of God.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    12:5 {But on mine own behalf} (huper de emautou). As if there were two Pauls. In a sense there were. He will only
    glory in the things mentioned above, the things of his weaknesses (#11:30).
