12Now when I came to 1Troas for the 2gospel of Christ and when a 3door was opened for me in the Lord,
I 4hadnorest for my spirit, not finding5Titus my brother; but 6taking my leave of them, I went on to 7Macedonia.
148But thanks be to God, who always9leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifeststhrough us the 10sweetaroma of the 11knowledge of Him in everyplace.
For we are a 12fragrance of Christ to Godamong13those who are being saved and amongthose who are perishing;
1614to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life. And who is 15adequate for thesethings?
For we are not likemany, a16peddling the word of God, but 17as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ18in the sight of God.
