2 Corinthians 8:10
in this I only advise you: it being for your credit, since you have not only begun to execute it, but you were the first that form'd the design a year ago.
nevertheless, I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I do not go away, the advocate will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him to you.
the same Caiaphas, who in council told the Jews, "it was expedient that one man should die for the people."

are all things lawful for me? yet all things are not expedient: are all things lawful for me? yet all things do not edify.
2 Corinthians 12:11
Am I become vain? 'tis you have forc'd me to it: for I ought to have been commended by you: since I am not inferior to the chiefest of the apostles, tho' in myself I am nothing.
2 Corinthians 11:16
I say it again, let no man think me vain; but if they do, yet as such, bear with me, that I too may applaud my self a little.
