2 Corinthians 2:9-17 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
9 The reason I wrote you1 was to see if you would stand the test and be obedient in everything.2 10 If you forgive anyone, I also forgive him. And what I have forgiven--if there was anything to forgive--I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, 11 in order that Satan3 might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.4

Ministers of the New Covenant

12 Now when I went to Troas5 to preach the gospel of Christ6 and found that the Lord had opened a door7 for me, 13 I still had no peace of mind,8 because I did not find my brother Titus9 there. So I said good-by to them and went on to Macedonia.10 14 But thanks be to God,11 who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance12 of the knowledge13 of him. 15 For we are to God the aroma14 of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.15 16 To the one we are the smell of death;16 to the other, the fragrance of life. And who is equal to such a task?17 17 Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit.18 On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity,19 like men sent from God.20
