Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 For we have known that if our earthly house of the tabernacle may be thrown down, a building from God we have, an house not made with hands -- age-during -- in the heavens, 1 Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.
2 for also in this we groan, with our dwelling that is from heaven earnestly desiring to clothe ourselves, 2 Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling,
3 if so be that, having clothed ourselves, we shall not be found naked, 3 because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked.
4 for we also who are in the tabernacle do groan, being burdened, seeing we wish not to unclothe ourselves, but to clothe ourselves, that the mortal may be swallowed up of the life. 4 For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.
5 And He who did work us to this self-same thing [is] God, who also did give to us the earnest of the Spirit; 5 Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
6 having courage, then, at all times, and knowing that being at home in the body, we are away from home from the Lord, -- 6 Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord.
7 for through faith we walk, not through sight -- 7 We live by faith, not by sight.
8 we have courage, and are well pleased rather to be away from the home of the body, and to be at home with the Lord. 8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.
9 Wherefore also we are ambitious, whether at home or away from home, to be well pleasing to him, 9 So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.
10 for all of us it behoveth to be manifested before the tribunal of the Christ, that each one may receive the things [done] through the body, in reference to the things that he did, whether good or evil; 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.
11 having known, therefore, the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, and to God we are manifested, and I hope also in your consciences to have been manifested; 11 Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade men. What we are is plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience.
12 for not again ourselves do we recommend to you, but we are giving occasion to you of glorifying in our behalf, that ye may have [something] in reference to those glorifying in face and not in heart; 12 We are not trying to commend ourselves to you again, but are giving you an opportunity to take pride in us, so that you can answer those who take pride in what is seen rather than in what is in the heart.
13 for whether we were beside ourselves, [it was] to God; whether we be of sound mind -- [it is] to you, 13 If we are out of our mind, it is for the sake of God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you.
14 for the love of the Christ doth constrain us, having judged thus: that if one for all died, then the whole died, 14 For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died.
15 and for all he died, that those living, no more to themselves may live, but to him who died for them, and was raised again. 15 And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.
16 So that we henceforth have known no one according to the flesh, and even if we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know him no more; 16 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer.
17 so that if any one [is] in Christ -- [he is] a new creature; the old things did pass away, lo, become new have the all things. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
18 And the all things [are] of God, who reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and did give to us the ministration of the reconciliation, 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:
19 how that God was in Christ -- a world reconciling to Himself, not reckoning to them their trespasses; and having put in us the word of the reconciliation, 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
20 in behalf of Christ, then, we are ambassadors, as if God were calling through us, we beseech, in behalf of Christ, `Be ye reconciled to God;' 20 We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God.
21 for him who did not know sin, in our behalf He did make sin, that we may become the righteousness of God in him. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
