Now [when I] arrived in Troas for the gospel of Christ and a door was opened for me by the Lord, I did not experience rest in my spirit, [because] I did not find Titus my brother, but saying farewell to them, I departed for Macedonia. But thanks [be] to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ, and who reveals the fragrance of the knowledge of him through us in every place. read more.
For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to those on the one hand an odor from death to death, [and] to those on the other hand a fragrance from life to life. And who [is] qualified for these [things]? For we are not like the majority who peddle the word of God, but as from pure motives--but as from God--we speak before God in Christ.



And [as for] the watchman, if he sees the sword coming and {he does not blow} the horn, and the people [are] not warned, and [the] sword comes and it takes {their lives}, he will be taken through his guilt, but his blood from the hand of the watchman I will seek.'

And he said to me, "Son of man, what you find, eat! Eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel." And I opened my mouth, and he gave me this scroll to eat, and he said to me, "Son of man, you must give your stomach [this] to eat, and you must fill your belly [with] this scroll that I [am] giving to you." And I ate, and it became {like sweet honey} in my mouth. read more.
And he said to me, "Son of man, come! Go to the house of Israel, and you must speak to them with my words. For you are sent to the house of Israel, not to a people {of obscure speech} and {of a difficult language}, [and] not to many nations {of obscure speech} and {a difficult language} {whose words} you do not understand, [for] if I had sent you to them they would have listened to you. And the house of Israel, they are not willing to listen to you, for they [are] not willing to listen to me, for all of the house of Israel is hard of forehead, and they [are] hard of heart. [But] look, I have made your face hard {against} their faces and your forehead hard {against} their forehead. Like a diamond {harder than flint} I have made your forehead; you must not fear them, and you must not be dismayed {on account of them}, for they {are a rebellious house}. And he said to me, "Son of man, all of my words that I shall speak to you, receive into your heart and hear with your ears. And come, go to the exiles, to the children of your people, and you must speak to them, and say to them, 'Thus says the Lord Yahweh!' whether they listen or whether they fail [to listen]." And the Spirit lifted me up, and I heard behind me the sound of a great earthquake when the glory of Yahweh rose from its place. And [it was] the sound of the wings of the living creatures touching lightly {one against the other}, and the sound of the wheels beside them and [the] sound of a great earthquake. And [the] Spirit lifted me and took me, and I went [in] bitterness in the heat of my spirit, and the hand of Yahweh [was] strong on me. And I went to the exiles [at] Tel Abib, who [were] dwelling near the {Kebar River}, and I sat [where] they [were] dwelling. I sat there seven days in the midst of them, stunned. And then it happened at [the] end of seven days, {the word of Yahweh came} to me, saying, "Son of man, I have appointed you [as] a watchman for the house of Israel. When you hear a word from my mouth, then you must warn them from me.
