"Ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us" (II Cor. 3:3)—Moffatt suggests the rendering: "You make it obvious that you are a letter of Christ which I have been employed to Weymouth: "For you show that you are a letter of Christ penned by and Goodspeed: "You show that you are a letter from Christ delivered by me."
"Our sufficiency is of God" (II Cor. 3:5)—The word rendered "sufficiency"can also mean "ability or competency to do something" (Thayer: Greek Lexicon, p. 300), or "power" (Souter: Greek Lexicon, p. 115). Hence, various translations are possible, such as: "Our comes from God" (Weymouth); "My is from God" (Goodspeed); "My qualifications come from God" (Moffatt); "Our fitness" (Twentieth Century New or again, "Our power comes from God." In the following verse, "[He] hath made us able might well be rendered, "He hath fitted (or qualified) us as servants;" for the noun ("he in verse 5. Compare Goodspeed's "He has qualified me to serve him;" and that of Moffatt: "He has further qualified me."
