2 Corinthians 2:7-17

GW 7 So now forgive and comfort him. Such distress could overwhelm someone like that if he's not forgiven and comforted. NIV 7 Now instead, you ought to forgive and comfort him, so that he will not be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow. GW 8 That is why I urge you to assure him that you love him. NIV 8 I urge you, therefore, to reaffirm your love for him. GW 9 I had also written to you to test you. I wanted to see if you would be obedient in every way. NIV 9 Another reason I wrote you was to see if you would stand the test and be obedient in everything. GW 10 If you forgive someone, so do I. Indeed, what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, I did in the presence of Christ for your benefit. NIV 10 Anyone you forgive, I also forgive. And what I have forgiven—if there was anything to forgive—I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, GW 11 I don't want Satan to outwit us. After all, we are not ignorant about Satan's scheming. NIV 11 in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes. GW 12 When I went to the city of Troas, the Lord gave me an opportunity to spread the Good News about Christ. NIV 12 Now when I went to Troas to preach the gospel of Christ and found that the Lord had opened a door for me, GW 13 But I didn't have any peace of mind, because I couldn't find Titus, our brother, there. So I said goodbye to the people in Troas and went to the province of Macedonia. NIV 13 I still had no peace of mind, because I did not find my brother Titus there. So I said goodbye to them and went on to Macedonia. GW 14 But I thank God, who always leads us in victory because of Christ. Wherever we go, God uses us to make clear what it means to know Christ. It's like a fragrance that fills the air. NIV 14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. GW 15 To God we are the aroma of Christ among those who are saved and among those who are dying. NIV 15 For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. GW 16 To some people we are a deadly fragrance, while to others we are a life-giving fragrance. Who is qualified to tell about Christ? NIV 16 To the one we are an aroma that brings death; to the other, an aroma that brings life. And who is equal to such a task? GW 17 At least we don't go around selling an impure word of God like many others. The opposite is true. As Christ's spokesmen and in God's presence, we speak the pure message that comes from God. NIV 17 Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God.
