2 Corinthians 2:17 The Passion Translation (TPT)

17 For unlike so many, we are not peddlers[a] of God’s Word who water down the message. We are those sent from God with pure motives, who speak in the sight of God[b] from our union with Christ.


  1. 2 Corinthians 2:17 The Greek word kapēleuō (a hapax legomenon) means “retailer,” but in classical Greek it comes with a negative connotation (“one who sells at an illegitimate profit”). The adverbial form of the noun is “cheating” or “deceitful.”
  2. 2 Corinthians 2:17 Paul states that his ministry of teaching and preaching happened while he was in the presence of God. His eyes were set on God, not on the people’s response.
