2 Corinthians 2:14-17 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

14 thanks be to God, who always gives us the victory in Christ, and opens the savour of the knowledge of him by us in every place. 15 For we are for God the sweet savour of Christ, both among those who are saved and also among those who are perishing. 16 To the one part we are the savour of death unto death, and to the other part we are the savour of life unto life.

And who is fit for these things? 17 For we are not as many are, who tamper with the word of God. But it is out of pureness, and by the power of God, and in the sight of God, that we speak in Christ.

2 Corinthians 2:14-17 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

14 Now thanks be unto God, which always maketh us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the [a]savor of his knowledge by us in every place.

15 [b]For we are unto God the sweet savor of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them which perish.

16 To the one we are the savor of death, unto death, and to the other the savor of life, unto life: [c]and who is sufficient for these things?

17 For we are not as many, which make [d]merchandise of the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

Footnotes:

  1. 2 Corinthians 2:14 He alludeth to the anointing of the Priests, and the incense of the sacrifices.
  2. 2 Corinthians 2:15 He denieth that ought should be taken away from the dignity of his Apostleship, because they saw evidently that it was not received with like success in every place, nay rather very many rejected and detested him, seeing that he preacheth Christ, not only as a Savior of them that believe, but also as a Judge of them that condemn him.
  3. 2 Corinthians 2:16 Again, he putteth away all suspicion of arrogance, attributing all things that he did, to the virtue of God, whom he serveth sincerely, and without all dishonest affection: whereof he maketh them witnesses even to verse 6 of the next chapter.
  4. 2 Corinthians 2:17 We do not handle it craftily and covetously, or less sincerely than we ought: and he useth a metaphor which is taken from hucksters, which used to play the false harlots with whatsoever cometh into their hands.

2 Corinthians 2:14-17 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. 15 For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: 16 to the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things? 17 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.
