2 Corinthians 2:14-17 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

14 And I do thankings to God, that evermore maketh us to have victory in Christ Jesus, and showeth by us the odour of his knowing in each place;[a]

15 for we be the good odour of Christ to God, among these that be made safe, and among these that perish. [for we be the good odour, or savour, of Christ to God, in these that be made safe, and in these that perish.]

16 To others soothly odour of death into death [Soothly to others we be odour of death into death], but to the others we be odour of life into life. And to these things who is so able?

17 For we be not as many, that do adultery by the word of God, but we speak of cleanness, as of God, before God in Christ. [Soothly we be not as full many, adulterating the word of God, but of cleanness, but as of God, before God in Christ we speak.]

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 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.
