You are not straitened in us, but you are straitened in your own bowels.
ContextPaul's Hardships and God's Grace
1We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that you receive not the grace of God in vain. 2(For he said, I have heard you in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored you: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) 3Giving no offense in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed: 4But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, 5In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in watchings, in fastings; 6By pureness, by knowledge, by long-suffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, 7By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, 8By honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true; 9As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed; 10As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things. 11O you Corinthians, our mouth is open to you, our heart is enlarged. 12You are not straitened in us, but you are straitened in your own bowels. 13Now for a recompense in the same, (I speak as to my children,) be you also enlarged.
