2 Corinthians 5

ASV 1 For we know that if the earthly house of our tabernacle be dissolved, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal, in the heavens. NIV 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. ASV 2 For verily in this we groan, longing to be clothed upon with our habitation which is from heaven: NIV 2 Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, ASV 3 if so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. NIV 3 because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. ASV 4 For indeed we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened; not for that we would be unclothed, but that we would be clothed upon, that what is mortal may be swallowed up of life. NIV 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. ASV 5 Now he that wrought us for this very thing is God, who gave unto us the earnest of the Spirit. NIV 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. ASV 6 Being therefore always of good courage, and knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord NIV 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. ASV 7 (for we walk by faith, not by sight); NIV 7 We live by faith, not by sight. ASV 8 we are of good courage, I say, and are willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be at home with the Lord. NIV 8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. ASV 9 Wherefore also we make it our aim, whether at home or absent, to be well-pleasing unto him. NIV 9 So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. ASV 10 For we must all be made manifest before the judgment-seat of Christ; that each one may receive the things [done] in the body, according to what he hath done, whether [it be] good or bad. NIV 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. ASV 11 Knowing therefore the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest unto God; and I hope that we are made manifest also in your consciences. NIV 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. ASV 12 We are not again commending ourselves unto you, but [speak] as giving you occasion of glorying on our behalf, that ye may have wherewith to answer them that glory in appearance, and not in heart. NIV 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. ASV 13 For whether we are beside ourselves, it is unto God; or whether we are of sober mind, it is unto you. NIV 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. ASV 14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that one died for all, therefore all died; NIV 14 For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. ASV 15 and he died for all, that they that live should no longer live unto themselves, but unto him who for their sakes died and rose again. NIV 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. ASV 16 Wherefore we henceforth know no man after the flesh: even though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now we know [him so] no more. NIV 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. ASV 17 Wherefore if any man is in Christ, [he is] a new creature: the old things are passed away; behold, they are become new. NIV 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! ASV 18 But all things are of God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and gave unto us the ministry of reconciliation; NIV 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: ASV 19 to wit, that God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself, not reckoning unto them their trespasses, and having committed unto us the word of reconciliation. NIV 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. ASV 20 We are ambassadors therefore on behalf of Christ, as though God were entreating by us: we beseech [you] on behalf of Christ, be ye reconciled to God. NIV 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. ASV 21 Him who knew no sin he made [to be] sin on our behalf; that we might become the righteousness of God in him. NIV 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
