2 Corinthians - Chapter 2
2 Corinthians Chapters
2 for if I cause you distress I am causing distress to my only possible source of joy.
4 I wrote to you in agony of mind, not meaning to cause you distress but to show you how very much love I have for you.
5 If anyone did cause distress, he caused it not to me, but -- not to exaggerate -- in some degree to all of you.
6 The punishment already imposed by the majority was quite enough for such a person;
13 I had no relief from anxiety, not finding my brother Titus there, and I said goodbye to them and went on to Macedonia.
15 To God we are the fragrance of Christ, both among those who are being saved and among those who are on the way to destruction;
16 for these last, the smell of death leading to death, but for the first, the smell of life leading to life. Who is equal to such a task?
17 At least we do not adulterate the word of God, as so many do, but it is in all purity, as envoys of God and in God's presence, that we speak in Christ.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
