14 But praise be to God who makes us strong to overcome in Christ, and makes clear through us in every place the value of the knowledge of him.
15 For we are a sweet perfume of Christ to God in those who are getting salvation and in those who are going to destruction;
16 To the one it is a perfume of death to death; to the other a perfume of life to life. And who is enough for such things?
17 For we are not like the great number who make use of the word of God for profit: but our words are true, as from God, being said as before God in Christ.
