2 Corinthians 5:1-8 (English Standard Version)

View In My Bible

Our Heavenly Dwelling

1 For we know that if 1the tent that is 2our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, 3a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 For in this tent 4we groan, longing to 5put on our heavenly dwelling, 3 if indeed by putting it ona we may not be found naked. 4 For while we are still in this tent, we groan, being burdened--not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal 6may be swallowed up by life. 5 He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, 7who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. 6 So we are always of good courage. We know that 8while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, 7 for 9we walk by faith, not 10by sight. 8 Yes, we are of good courage, and we 11would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.
