2 Corinthians 5

CHAPTER 5

Longing for a Heavenly Body

For we know that if our earthly house of the tent be rested up, [2a construction 3from 4God 1we have], a house not made by hands, eternal in the heavens. For also in this we moan, [3our dwelling-place -- 4the one 5of 6heaven 2to put on 1longing]; if indeed also being clothed, [2not 4naked 1we shall 3be found]. For also [2the ones 3being 4in 5the 6tent 1we] moan, being weighed down; since we do not want to be stripped, but to put on, that [3should be swallowed down 1the 2mortal] by the life. And the one manufacturing us for this same thing is God, the one also having given to us the deposit of the spirit. Taking courage then at all times, and knowing that while dwelling at home in the body, we are abroad from the Lord. [2by 3belief 1For] we walk, not by sight. And we take courage, and we take pleasure rather to be abroad from the body, and to dwell at home with the Lord. Therefore also we strive earnestly, whether dwelling at home or whether being abroad, [2well-pleasing 3to him 1to be].

Everyone Shall Give an Account

10 [3the ones 1For 2all] of us [2be manifested 1must] before the rostrum of the Christ, that [2should receive 1each] the things of the body, as to what he practiced, whether good or whether bad. 11 Knowing then the fear of the Lord, [2men 1we persuade]. But to God we have been made apparent; and I hope also in your consciences we have been made apparent. 12 For [2not 5again 4ourselves 1we do 3commend] to you, but [3opportunity 1are giving 2you] for boasting over us, that you should have something against the ones [2in 3appearance 1boasting], and not in heart. 13 For whether we were startled, it was to God; or whether we were of a sound mind, it is for you. 14 For the love of the Christ constrains us, having adjudged this, that if one [2for 3all 1died], then all died; 15 and [2for 3all 1that he died], that the ones living no longer should live to themselves, but to the one [2for 3them 1having died] and arising. 16 So that we from the present [2nothing 1know] according to the flesh. And if also we have known [2according to 3the flesh 1Christ], but now no longer do we know him thus. 17 So that if anyone be in Christ, there is a new creation, the old things passed away; behold, [2have become 3new 1all things]. 18  And all things are of God, of the reconciling us to himself through Jesus Christ, and having given to us the service of the of reconciliation; 19 how that God was in Christ [2the world 1reconciling] to himself, not imputing to them their transgressions, and having put in us the word of the reconciliation. 20 For of Christ then we are ambassadors, as of God appealing through us; we beseech for Christ -- be reconciled to God! 21 For the one not knowing sin, [3for 4us 2a sin offering 1he made], that we should be righteousness of God by him.
