5:1 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. We know surely if our earthy mansion wherein we now dwell were destroyed, that we have a building ordained of god, an habitation not made with hands, but eternal in heaven. For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle be destroyed, we have a building given of God, that is, an house not made with hands, but eternal in the heavens. For we know, that if our earthly house of this Tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hand, eternal in the heavens.
5:2 For why in this thing we mourn, coveting to be clothed above with our dwelling, which is of heaven; and herefore sigh we, desiring to be clothed with our mansion which is from heaven: For therefore we sigh, desiring to be clothed with our house, which is from heaven. For in this we groan earnestly, desiring to be clothed upon with our house, which is from heaven.
5:3 if nevertheless we be found clothed, and not naked. if it happen that we be found clothed, and not naked. Because that if we be clothed, we shall not be found naked. If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
5:4 For why we that be in this tabernacle, sorrow within, and be grieved, for that we will not be despoiled, but clothed above; that that thing that is deadly, be sopped up of life. For as long as we are in this tabernacle, we sigh and are grieved: for we would not be unclothed: but would be clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. For indeed we that are in this tabernacle, sigh and are burdened, because we would not be unclothed, but would be clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. For, we that are in this tabernacle, do groan, being burdened, not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
5:5 Forsooth he that maketh us into this same thing, is God, that gave to us the earnest of Spirit. He that hath ordained us for this thing is god: which very same hath given unto us the earnest of the spirit. And he that hath created us for this thing, is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing, is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the spirit.
5:6 Therefore we be hardy all-gates, and knowing for the while we be in this body, we go in pilgrimage from the Lord; We are alway of good cheer, and know well that as long as we are at home in the body we are absent from God. Therefore we are alway bold, though we know that whiles we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord. Therefore we are always confident, knowing that whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord.
5:7 for we walk by faith, and not by clear sight. For we walk in faith and see not. (For we walk by faith, & not by sight) (For we walk by faith, not by sight.)
5:8 Forsooth we be hardy, and have good will, more to be in pilgrimage from the body, and to be present to God. Nevertheless we are of good comfort, and had lever to be absent from the body and to be present with God. Nevertheless, we are bold, & love rather to remove out of the body, and to dwell with the Lord. We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
5:9 And therefore we strive, whether absent, whether present, to please him. Wherefore we endeavor ourselves, whether we be at home or from home, to please God. Wherefore also we covet, that both dwelling at home, and removing from home, we may be acceptable to him. Wherefore we labour, that whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
5:10 For it behooveth us all to be shewed before the throne of Christ, that every man receive the proper things of the body, as he hath done, either good, either evil. For we must all be brought before the judgement seat of Christ that every man may receive the works of his body according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, that every man may receive the things which are done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or evil. For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
5:11 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. Seeing then that we know how the lord is to be feared, we fare fair with men. For we are known well enough unto God. I trust also that we are known in your consciences. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men, & we are made manifest unto God, & I trust also that we are made manifest in your consciences. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God, & I trust also, are made manifest in your consciences.
5:12 We commend not ourselves again to you, but we give to you occasion to glory for us, that ye have understanding to them that glory in the face, and not in the heart. We praise not ourselves again unto you, but give you an occasion to rejoice of us, that ye may have somewhat against them, which rejoice in the face, and not in the heart. For we praise not ourselves again unto you, but give you an occasion to rejoice of us, that ye may have to answer against them, which rejoice in the face, and not in the heart. For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that you may have somewhat to answer them, which glory in appearance, and not in heart.
5:13 Soothly whether we by mind, pass it is to God, whether we be sober it is to you? For if we be too fervent, to God are we too fervent: if we keep measure, for your cause keep we measure. For whether we be out of our wit, we are it to God: or whether we be in our right mind, we are it unto you. For whether we be besides ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.
5:14 For the charity of Christ driveth us; guessing this thing, that if one died for all, then all were dead. For the love of Christ constraineth us, because we thus judge, if one be dead for all, that then are all dead, For the love of Christ constraineth us: because we thus judge, that if one be dead for all, then were all dead, For the love of Christ constraineth us, because we thus judge: that if one died for all, then were all dead:
5:15 And Christ died for all, that they that live, live not now to themselves, but to him that died for them, and rose again. and that he died for all, because that they which live, should not henceforth live unto themselves: but unto him which died for them and rose again. And he died for all, that they which live, should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. And that he died for all, that they which live, should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
5:16 And so we from this time have known no man after the flesh; and if we knew Christ after the flesh, but right now we know not. Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh. Insomuch that though we have known Christ after the flesh, now henceforth know we him so no more. Wherefore, henceforth know we no man after the flesh, yea though we had known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. Wherefore henceforth know we no man, after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.
5:17 Therefore if any new creature is in Christ, old things have passed. Lo! all things be made new, Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things are passed away, behold all things are become new, Therefore if any man be in Christ, let him be a new creature. Old things are passed away: behold, all things are become new. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away, behold, all things are become new.
5:18 and all things be of God, which reconciled us to him by Christ, and gave to us the ministry of reconciling. Nevertheless all things are of god, which hath reconciled us unto himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given unto us the office to preach the atonement. And all things are of God, which hath reconciled us unto himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given unto us the ministry of reconciliation. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation,
5:19 Soothly, for God was in Christ, reconciling to him the world, not reckoning to them their guilts, and put in us the word of reconciling. For god was in Christ, and made agreement between the world and himself, and imputed not their sins unto them: and hath committed to us the preaching of the atonement. For God was in Christ, and reconciled the world to himself, not imputing their sins unto them, and hath committed to us the word of reconciliation. To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them, and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
5:20 Therefore we be set in legacy for Christ, as if God admonisheth by us; we beseech you for Christ, be ye reconciled to God. Now then are we messengers in the room of Christ: even as though God did beseech you through us: So pray we you in Christ’s stead, that ye be at one with God: Now then are we ambassadors for Christ: as though God did beseech you through us, we pray you in Christ’s stead, that ye be reconciled to God. Now then we are Ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us; we pray you in Christ’s stead, that be ye reconciled to God.
5:21 God the Father made him sin for us, which knew not sin, that we should be made the rightwiseness of God in him. for he hath made him to be sin for us, which knew no sin, that we by his means should be that rightwiseness which before God is allowed. For he hath made him to be sin for us, which knew no sin, that we should be made the righteousness of God in him. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
