2 Corinthians 5:1-8 (Douay-Rheims)

View In My Bible
1 For we know, if our earthly house of this habitation be dissolved, that we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in heaven. 2 For in this also we groan, desiring to be clothed upon with our habitation that is from heaven. 3 Yet so that we be found clothed, not naked. 4 For we also, who are in this tabernacle, do groan, being burthened; because we would not be unclothed, but clothed upon, that that which is mortal may be swallowed up by life. 5 Now he that maketh us for this very thing is God, who hath given us the pledge of the Spirit, 6 Therefore having always confidence, knowing that while we are in the body we are absent from the Lord. 7 (For we walk by faith and not by sight.) 8 But we are confident and have a good will to be absent rather from the body and to be present with the Lord.
