Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 And we know, that if our earthly house of this dwelling be dissolved, that we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, everlasting in 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 why in this thing we mourn, coveting to be clothed above with our dwelling, which is of heaven; 2 Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling,
3 if nevertheless we be found clothed, and not naked. 3 because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked.
4 For why we that be in this tabernacle, sorrow within, and be heavied [grieved], for that we will not be spoiled, but be clothed above; that that thing that is deadly, be swallowed up of life [+for that we will not be despoiled, but clothed above; that that thing that is deadly, be sopped up of 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 But who is it that maketh us into this same thing? God, that gave to us the earnest of the Spirit. [Forsooth he that maketh us into this same thing, is God, that gave to us the earnest of 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 Therefore we be hardy always, and know that the while we be in this body, we go in pilgrimage from the Lord; [+Therefore we be hardy all-gates, and knowing for the while we be in this body, we go in pilgrimage 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 we walk by faith, and not by clear sight. 7 We live by faith, not by sight.
8 But we be hardy [Forsooth we be hardy], and have good will, more to be in pilgrimage from the body, and to be present to God. 8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.
9 And therefore we strive, whether absent, whether present, to please 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 it behooveth us all to be showed before the throne of Christ, that every man tell the proper things of the body [+that every man receive the proper things of the body], as he hath done, either good, either 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 Therefore we witting the dread of the Lord, counsel men, for to God we be open; and I hope, that we be open also in your consciences. 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 We commend not us selves again to you, but we give to you occasion to have glory for us [We commend not ourselves again to you, but we give to you occasion to glory for us], that ye have [understanding] to them that glory in the face, and not in the 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 either we by mind pass to God, either we be sober to you. [Soothly whether we by mind, or reason, pass it is to God, whether we be sober 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 charity of Christ driveth us; guessing this thing [guessing, or deeming, this thing], that if one died for all, then all were dead. 14 For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died.
15 And Christ died for all, that they that live, live not now to themselves, but to him that died for them, and rose 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 Therefore we from this time know no man after the flesh; though we (have) known Christ after the flesh [And so we from this time have known no man after the flesh; and if we knew Christ after the flesh], but [right] now we know not. 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 Therefore if any new creature is in Christ, the old things be passed [old things have passed]. Lo! all things be made new, 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
18 and all things be of God, which reconciled us to him by Christ, and gave to us the service of reconciling [and gave to us the ministry, or service, of reconciling]. 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:
19 And God was in Christ [Soothly, for God was in Christ], reconciling to him the world, not reckoning to them their guilts, and putted in us the word of reconciling [and put in us the word of reconciling]. 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 Therefore we use message for Christ [Therefore we be set in legacy, or message, for Christ], as if God admonisheth by us; we beseech you for 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 God the Father made him sin for us, which knew not sin, that we should be made [the] rightwiseness 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.
