    Seeing that many glory after the flesh - Boast of external and secular things.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Corinthians 11:18

    Seeing that many glory ... - The false teachers in Corinth. They boasted of their birth, rank, natural endowments, eloquence, etc.; see 2 Corinthians 11:22. Compare Philippians 3:3-4.

    I will glory also - I also will boast of my endowments, which though somewhat different yet pertain in the main to the "flesh" also; see 2 Corinthians 11:23 ff. His endowments "in the flesh," or what he had to boast of pertaining to the flesh, related not so much to birth and rank, though not inferior to them in these, but to what the flesh had endured - to stripes and imprisonments, and hunger and peril. This is an exceedingly delicate and happy turn given to the whole subject.

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Corinthians 11:18

    11:18 After the flesh - That is, in external things.
