But we havethistreasure in 1earthenvessels, so that the surpassinggreatness of 2the power will be of God and not from ourselves;
we are 3afflicted in everyway, but not 4crushed; 5perplexed, but not despairing;
96persecuted, but not 7forsaken; 8struckdown, but not destroyed;
109alwayscarryingabout in the body the dying of Jesus, so that 10the life of Jesusalso may be manifested in our body.
For we who live are constantly being deliveredover to death for Jesus'sake, so that the life of Jesusalso may be manifested in our mortalflesh.
12Sodeathworks in us, but life in you.
But having the same11spirit of faith, according to what is written, "12I BELIEVED, THEREFORE I SPOKE," we alsobelieve, therefore we alsospeak,
14knowing that He who 13raised the LordJesus14will raise us also with Jesus and will 15present us with you.
For allthings are 16for your sakes, so that the grace which is a17spreading to more and more people may cause the giving of thanks to abound to the glory of God.
16Therefore we 18do not loseheart, but though our outerman is decaying, yet our 19innerman is 20being renewedday by day.
