For we knowG1492 that ifG1437 our earthlyG1919 houseG3614 of thisG3588 tabernacleG4636 were dissolved,G2647 we haveG2192 a buildingG3619 of God,G2316 an houseG3614 not madeG886 with hands,G886 eternalG166 in the heavens.G3772
For in thisG5129 we groan,G4727 earnestlyG1971 desiringG1971 to be clothedG1902 on with our houseG3613 whichG3588 is from heaven:G3772
IfG1489 so be that being clothedG1746 we shall not be foundG2147 naked.G1131
For we that are in thisG3588 tabernacleG4636 do groan,G4727 being burdened:G916 not for that we wouldG2309 be unclothed,G1562 but clothedG1902 on, that mortalityG2349 might be swallowedG2666 up of life.G2222
NowG1161 he that has workedG2716 us for the selfsameG846 G5124 thing is God,G2316 whoG3588 alsoG2532 has givenG1325 to us the earnestG728 of the Spirit.G4151
ThereforeG3767 we are alwaysG3842 confident,G2292 knowingG1492 that, whilst we are atG1722 homeG1736 in the body,G4983 we are absentG1553 from the Lord:G2962
(For we walkG4043 by faith,G4102 not by sight:G1491)
We are confident,G2292 I say, and willingG2106 ratherG3123 to be absentG1553 from the body,G4983 and to be presentG1736 with the Lord.G2962
WhyG1352 we labor,G5389 that, whetherG1535 presentG1736 orG1535 absent,G1553 we may be acceptedG2101 of him.
For we mustG1163 allG3956 appearG5319 beforeG1715 the judgmentG968 seatG968 of Christ;G5547 that everyG1538 one may receiveG2865 the things done in his body,G4983 accordingG4314 to that he has done,G4238 whetherG1535 it be goodG18 orG1535 bad.G2556
KnowingG1492 thereforeG3767 the terrorG5401 of the Lord,G2962 we persuadeG3982 men;G444 but we are madeG5319 manifestG5319 to God;G2316 and I trustG1679 alsoG2532 are madeG5319 manifestG5319 in yourG5216 consciences.G4893
For we commendG4921 not ourselvesG1438 againG3825 to you, but giveG1325 you occasionG874 to gloryG2745 onG5228 our behalf,G5228 that you may haveG2192 somewhat to answer them which gloryG2744 in appearance,G4383 and not in heart.G2588
For whetherG1535 we be besideG1839 ourselves, it is to God:G2316 orG1535 whetherG1535 we be sober,G4993 it is for yourG5213 cause.
For the loveG26 of ChristG5547 constrainsG4912 us; because we thusG5124 judge,G2919 that ifG1487 oneG1520 diedG599 for all,G3956 thenG686 were allG3956 dead:G599
And that he diedG599 for all,G3956 that they which liveG2198 should not from now onG3371 liveG2198 to themselves,G1438 but to him which diedG599 for them, and roseG1453 again.G1453
WhyG5620 from now onG575 knowG1492 we noG3762 manG3762 afterG2596 the flesh:G4561 yes,G1161 thoughG1499 we have knownG1097 ChristG5547 afterG2596 the flesh,G4561 yetG235 nowG3568 from now onG2089 knowG1097 we him noG3765 more.G2089
ThereforeG5620 ifG1487 anyG1536 man be in Christ,G5547 he is a newG2537 creature:G2937 oldG744 things are passedG3928 away; behold,G2400 allG3956 things are becomeG1096 new.G2537
And allG3956 things are of God,G2316 whoG3588 has reconciledG2644 us to himselfG1438 by JesusG2424 Christ,G5547 and has givenG1325 to us the ministryG1248 of reconciliation;G2643
To wit,G5613 that GodG2316 was in Christ,G5547 reconcilingG2644 the worldG2889 to himself,G1438 not imputingG3049 their trespassesG3900 to them; and has committedG5087 to us the wordG3056 of reconciliation.G2643
NowG3767 then we are ambassadorsG4243 for Christ,G5547 as though GodG2316 did beseechG3870 you by us: we prayG1189 you in Christ'sG5547 stead,G5228 be you reconciledG2644 to God.G2316
For he has madeG4160 him to be sinG266 for us, who knewG1097 noG3361 sin;G266 that we might be madeG1096 the righteousnessG1343 of GodG2316 in him.
