To the other,
From life to life.
Who is sufficient
For these things?”
οἷς μὲν ὀσμὴ ἐκ θανάτου εἰς θάνατον, οἷς δὲ ὀσμὴ ἐκ ζωῆς εἰς ζωήν. καὶ πρὸς ταῦτα τίς ἱκανός;
Paul said to one, there was a fragrance or odor (οἷς μὲν ὀσμὴ) from death to death (ἐκ θανάτου εἰς θάνατον). To the other (οἷς δὲ ὀσμὴ), there was a fragrance from life to life (ἐκ ζωῆς εἰς ζωήν). Who was sufficient for these things (καὶ πρὸς ταῦτα τίς ἱκανός)? Paul said there were two kinds of fragrances or odors. There would be the smell of death for one and the smell of life for the other. Who fully understands this? Paul, of course, would reply himself. Are you familiar with the smell of death?
