2 Corinthians 2:15-16

Context
2:15 For we are a sweet aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing – 2:16 to the latter an odor 1  from death to death, but to the former a fragrance from life to life. And who is adequate for these things? 2 

1 tn The same Greek word (ὀσμή, osmh) translated “odor” here (in relation to the stench of death) has been translated “fragrance” in 2:14 and in the next phrase of the present verse. The word itself can describe a smell or odor either agreeable or disagreeable depending on the context (L&N 79.45).

2 sn These things refer to the things Paul is doing in his apostolic ministry.
