5 For we 1do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus' sake.
6 For God, who said, "2Light shall shine out of darkness," is the One who has 3shone in our hearts to give the 4Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
7 But we have this treasure in 5earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of 6the power will be of God and not from ourselves;
8 we are 7afflicted in every way, but not 8crushed; 9perplexed, but not despairing;
10 13always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that 14the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.
