You would bear
In a little foolishness.
Do bear with me!”
Ὄφελον ἀνείχεσθέ μου μικρόν τι ἀφροσύνης· ἀλλὰ καὶ ἀνέχεσθέ μου.
Paul said, “I wish (Ὄφελον) you would bear with me (ἀνείχεσθέ μου) in a little foolishness (μικρόν τι ἀφροσύνης). Do bear with me (ἀλλὰ καὶ ἀνέχεσθέ μου)!” Paul wanted to indulge in a little foolishness. He was going to parody these false Christian apostles who were in Corinth. Paul was going to explain himself by mocking those who were criticizing him. He was sorry that he had to do this, but he wanted to make a point. Do you foolishly criticize others?
