2 Corinthians 5:1-11 (The Darby Translation)

View In My Bible
1 For we know that if our earthly tabernacle house a be destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 For indeed in this we groan, ardently desiring to have put on our house which [is] from b heaven; 3 if indeed being also clothed we shall not be found naked. 4 For indeed we who are in the tabernacle groan, being burdened; while yet c we do not wish to be unclothed, but clothed, that [what is] mortal may be swallowed up by life. 5 Now he that has wrought us for this very thing [is] God, who also has given to us the earnest of the Spirit. 6 Therefore [we are] always confident, and know d that while present in the body we are absent e from the Lord, 7 (for we walk by faith, not by sight;) 8 we are confident, I say, and pleased rather to be absent from the body and present with the Lord. 9 Wherefore also we are zealous, whether present or absent, to be agreeable to him. 10 For we must all be manifested before the judgment-seat of the Christ, that each may receive the things [done] in f the body, according to those he has done, whether [it be] good or evil. 11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord we persuade men, but have been manifested to God, and I hope also that we have been g manifested in your consciences.
