2 Corinthians 5:2

To be clothed upon with our habitation which is from heaven (to oikhthrion hmwn to ex ouranou ependusasqai). First aorist middle infinitive of late verb ependuw, double compound (ep, en) to put upon oneself. Cf. ependuth for a fisherman's linen blouse or upper garment ( John 21:7 ). Oikhthrion is old word used here of the spiritual body as the abode of the spirit. It is a mixed metaphor (putting on as garment the dwelling-place).
