Central Idea: Paul asks the Corinthians to bear with him as he enters into the foolishness of boasting; and then says why he is willing to go down that road: he has a holy jealousy for them because he betrothed them to Christ in purity and is afraid they will be led astray because they so willingly tolerate differing proclamations (of Christ, the Spirit, the gospel); further, Paul does not consider himself the least inferior to these false apostles. Explanations & Questions: The logical connections seem fairly straight forward until I get to v.5-6. It is the fourth proposition in this section to begin with gar (for, since) . What is this proposition grounding? After trying a few other options, I finally decided to link this arc to the previous one as a (P) progression. Why does Paul feel a divine jealousy? Both v.2b-4 and v.5-6 could stand alone as an answer, but the second is strengthened by the first. This seems to be the emphasis that comes out in the ESV, "Indeed, I consider..."

ζηλῶ γὰρ ὑμᾶς θεοῦ ζήλῳ
For I feel a divine jealousy for you,
ἡρμοσάμην γὰρ ὑμᾶς ἑνὶ ἀνδρὶ
since I betrothed you to one husband,
παρθένον ἁγνὴν παραστῆσαι τῷ Χριστῷ
to present you as a pure virgin to Christ.

φοβοῦμαι δὲ
But I am afraid
μή πως ὡς ὁ ὄφις ἐξηπάτησεν Εὕαν ἐν τῇ πανουργίᾳ αὐτοῦ
that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning,
φθαρῇ τὰ νοήματα ὑμῶν ἀπὸ τῆς ἁπλότητος καὶ τῆς ἁγνότητος τῆς εἰς τὸν Χριστόν
your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.

or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received,
