11so that noadvantage would be taken of us by 1Satan, for 2we are not ignorant of his schemes.
12Now when I came to 3Troas for the 4gospel of Christ and when a 5door was opened for me in the Lord,
I 6hadnorest for my spirit, not finding7Titus my brother ; but 8taking my leave of them, I went on to 9Macedonia.
1410But thanks be to God, who always11leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifeststhrough us the 12sweetaroma of the 13knowledge of Him in everyplace.
For we are a 14fragrance of Christ to Godamong15those who are being saved and amongthose who are perishing ;
1616to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life. And who is 17adequate for thesethings ?
For we are not likemany, a18peddling the word of God, but 19as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ20in the sight of God.
