14 1But thanks be to God, who always 2leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the 3sweet aroma of the 4knowledge of Him in every place.
15 For we are a 5fragrance of Christ to God among 6those who are being saved and among those who are perishing;
16 7to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life. And who is 8adequate for these things?
17 For we are not like many, 9peddling the word of God, but 10as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ 11in the sight of God.
