2 Corinthians 4 - King James 3 - The Literal Traslation

Present Weakness and Resurrection Life

1. Because of this, having this ministry, even as we obtained mercy, we do not fail in heart.

2. But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness, nor corrupting the Word of God, but by the revelation of the truth commending ourselves to every conscience of men before God.

3. But if even our gospel is being hidden, it has been hidden in the ones perishing,

4. in whom the god of this age has blinded the thoughts of the faithless ones, so that the illumination of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not shine on them.

5. For we do not proclaim ourselves, but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves your slaves for the sake of Jesus.

6. Because it is God who said, “Out of darkness Light shall shine,” the One who shone in our hearts to give the illumination of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Isa. 42:6, 7, 16

7. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the excellence of the power may be of God, and not from us;

8. in every way being pressed, but not being constricted; being perplexed, but not utterly despairing;

9. being persecuted, but not being forsaken; being thrown down, but not perishing;

10. alway bearing about the dying of the Lord Jesus in the body, that also the life of Jesus may be revealed in our body.

11. For we, the ones living, are always being given over to death on account of Jesus, that also the life of Jesus may be revealed in our mortal flesh;

12. so that death indeed works in us, and life in you.

13. But having the same spirit of faith, according to the thing having been written, “I believed, therefore I spoke,” we also believe, therefore we also speak, LXX-Psa. 115:1; MT-Psa. 116:10

14. knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up through Jesus, and will present us with you.

15. For all things are for you, that the grace, superabounding through the greater number may cause the thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.

16. Therefore we do not fail in heart, but if indeed our outward man is being consumed, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.

17. For the lightness of our present affliction works out for us an eternal weight of glory, surpassing moment by surpassing moment;

18. we not looking at the things being seen, but the things not being seen; for the things being seen are not lasting, but the things not being seen are everlasting.
