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.
For why in this thing we mourn, coveting to be clothed above with our dwelling, which is of heaven;
if nevertheless we be found clothed, and not naked.
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].
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.]
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;]
for we walk by faith, and not by clear sight.
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.
And therefore we strive, whether absent, whether present, to please him.
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.
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.
