6Therefore, being always of goodcourage, and knowing that 1while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord -
for 2we walk by faith, not by asight -
we are of goodcourage, I say, and 3preferrather to be absent from the body and 4to be at home with the Lord.
9Therefore we alsohave as our ambition, whether at homeorabsent, to be 5pleasing to Him.
For we mustallappearbefore6the judgmentseat of Christ, so that eachone may be recompensed for bhis deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whethergoodorbad.
