The Temporal and Eternal

1 For we know that if athe 1earthly 2tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house 3not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 For indeed in this house we 4groan, longing to be 5clothed with our dwelling from heaven, 3 inasmuch as we, having put it on, will not be found naked. 4 For indeed while we are in this tent, we 6groan, being burdened, because we do not want to be unclothed but to be 7clothed, so that what is 8mortal will be swallowed up by life. 5 Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who 9gave to us the Spirit as a bpledge. 6 Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that 10while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord - 7 for 11we walk by faith, not by csight - 8 we are of good courage, I say, and 12prefer rather to be absent from the body and 13to be at home with the Lord. 9 Therefore we also have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be 14pleasing to Him. 10 For we must all appear before 15the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for dhis deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 11 Therefore, knowing the 16fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest to God; and I hope that we are 17made manifest also in your consciences.
