From Textus Receptus

  • 1 Because, we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
  • 2 Because, in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven,
  • 3 if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked.
  • 4 Because, we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life.
  • 5 Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.
  • 6 So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord.
  • 7 Because we walk by faith, not by sight.
  • 8 We are confident, I proclaim, and willing rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
  • 9 Therefore we labor, so that whether present or absent, we may be accepted of Him.
  • 10 Because, we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether it is good or bad.
  • 11 Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest to God, and I also trust are made manifest in your consciences.
  • 12 Because, we do not commend ourselves again to you, but give you opportunity to boast on our behalf, that you may have something to answer them who boast in appearance and not in heart.
  • 13 Because, if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; or if we are sober, it is because of you.
  • 14 Because, the love of Christ compels us, because we have judged thus: that if One died for all, then all died;
  • 15 and that He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
  • 1 Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet from now on we know Him like this no longer.
  • 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
  • 18 Now all these things are from God, who has reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation,
  • 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
  • 20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading to you through us: we urge you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.
  • 21 Because, He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
