[no paragraph]: 2:14 would be weakened by the separation from the preceding verses. (Bible Treasury 14:368)
leadeth us in triumph:... many commentators, Protestant and Catholic alike, pare down and alter the meaning. Among the rest, our own Authorized translation was so affected by this impression, that they rendered θριαμβεύειν,’ "to cause to triumph," instead of lead in triumph, as they should. The other has been attempted to be sustained by the Hellenistic causative usage of μαθητεύειν, βασιλεύειν, καπηλεύειν, and χορεύειν, even in classical Greek. But the usage of the apostle in Colossians 2:5 is adverse, nor am I aware of a single instance in which it can be proved to be ever thus employed. Besides, it really weakens, if it does not destroy, the beauty of the apostle's image, and makes it to be his triumph rather than God's. (Notes on 2 Cor., p.34)
leadeth us in triumph: "Leadeth us in triumph" in verse 14 is correct (Bible Treasury 13:367)
