12 Now when I came to Troas for the gospel of Christ and when a door was opened for me in the Lord, 13 I had no rest for my spirit, not finding Titus my brother; but saying goodbye to them, I went on to Macedonia.
14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us reveals the fragrance of the knowledge of Him in every place. 15 For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing: 16 to the one an a]aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life. And who is adequate for these things? 17 For we are not like the many, b]peddling the word of God, but as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ in the sight of God.
