New International Version
I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself.
King James Bible
But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.
Darby Bible Translation
But for me it is the very smallest matter that I be examined of you or of man's day. Nor do I even examine myself.
World English Bible
But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you, or by man's judgment. Yes, I don't judge my own self.
Young's Literal Translation
and to me it is for a very little thing that by you I may be judged, or by man's day, but not even myself do I judge,
1 Corinthians 4:3 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
It is a very small thing that I should be judged of you - Those who preferred Apollos or Kephas before St. Paul, would of course give their reasons for this preference; and these might, in many instances, be very unfavourable to his character as a man, a Christian, or an apostle; of this he was regardless, as he sought not his own glory, but the glory of God in the salvation of their souls.
Or of man's judgment - Η ὑπο ανθρωπινης ἡμερας, literally, or of man's day: but ανθρωπινη ἡμερα signifies any day set apart by a judge or magistrate to try a man on. This is the meaning of ἡμερα, Psalm 37:13 : The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his Day, ἡ ἡμερα αυτου, his judgment is coming. Malachi 3:17 : And they shall be mine in the Day, εις ἡμεραν, in the judgment, when I make up my jewels. It has the same meaning in 2 Peter 3:10 : But the Day, the Judgment, of the Lord will come. The word ανθρωπινος, man's, signifies miserable, wretched, woful; so Jeremiah 17:16 : Neither have I desired, יום אנוש yom enosh, the day of man; but very properly translated in our version, the woful day. God's Days, Job 24:1, certainly signify God's Judgments. And the Day of our Lord Jesus, in this epistle, 1 Corinthians 1:8; 1 Corinthians 5:5, signifies the day in which Christ will judge the world; or rather the judgment itself.
I judge not mine own self - I leave myself entirely to God, whose I am, and whom I serve.

Riches are not forever; and doth the crown endure to every generation?--PROV. 27:24. Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.--Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.--Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven. For where your treasure is, there will your …
