2 Corinthians 2:12-17 American Standard Version (ASV)

12 Now when I came to Troas for the [a]gospel of Christ, and when a door was opened unto me in the Lord, 13 I had no relief for my spirit, because I found not Titus my brother: but taking my leave of them, I went forth into Macedonia.

14 But thanks be unto God, who always leadeth us in triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest through us the savor of his knowledge in every place. 15 For we are a sweet savor of Christ unto God, in them that [b]are saved, and in them that [c]perish; 16 to the one a savor from death unto death; to the other a savor from life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things? 17 For we are not as the many, [d]corrupting the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God, speak we in Christ.
