But having the same1spirit of faith, according to what is written, "2I BELIEVED, THEREFORE I SPOKE," we alsobelieve, therefore we alsospeak,
14knowing that He who 3raised the LordJesus4will raise us also with Jesus and will 5present us with you.
For allthings are 6for your sakes, so that the grace which is a7spreading to more and more people may cause the giving of thanks to abound to the glory of God.
16Therefore we 8do not loseheart, but though our outerman is decaying, yet our 9innerman is 10being renewedday by day.
For momentary, 11lightaffliction is producing for us an eternalweight of gloryfarbeyondallcomparison,
while we 12look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
