6 Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that 1while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord -
7 for 2we walk by faith, not by sight -
8 we are of good courage, I say, and 3prefer rather to be absent from the body and 4to be at home with the Lord.
9 Therefore we also have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be 5pleasing to Him.
10 For we must all appear before 6the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
