Young's Literal Translation
this ministry 1 by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart.
But we have renounced
disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or 3 to tamper with God's word, but 4 by the open statement of the truth 5 we would commend ourselves to everyone's conscience in the sight of God.
if our gospel is veiled, 7 it is veiled only to 8 those who are perishing.
In their case
the god of this world 10 has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing 11 the light of 12 the gospel of the glory of Christ, 13 who is the image of God.
we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with 15 ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake.
For God, who said,
"Let light shine out of darkness," 17 has shone in our hearts to give 18 the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
But we have this treasure in
jars of clay, 20 to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.
afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair;
not forsaken; 23 struck down, but not destroyed;
always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, 25 so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.
For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
death is at work in us, but life in you.
Since we have
the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, 28 "I believed, and so I spoke," we also believe, and so we also speak,
he who raised the Lord Jesus 30 will raise us also with Jesus and 31 bring us with you into his presence.
it is all for your sake, so that as 33 grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, 34 to the glory of God.
So we do not lose heart.
Though our outer self is wasting away, 36 our inner self 37 is being renewed day by day.
this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison,
as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
