2 Corinthians 5 - King James 3 - The Literal Traslation

Awaiting the New Body

1. For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle is taken down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in Heaven.

2. For also in this we groan, greatly desiring to be clothed with our dwelling place out of Heaven,

3. if indeed in being clothed, we shall not be found naked.

4. For indeed, being in the tabernacle, we groan, having been weighted down, inas- much as we do not wish to put off the body, but the spiritual to be put on, so that the mortal may be swallowed up by the life.

5. And the One having worked in us for this same thing is God, who also is giving us the earnest of the Spirit.

6. Therefore always being fully confident, and knowing that being at home in the body we are away from home from the Lord

7. (for we walk by faith, not by sight),

8. even we are fully confident, and think it good rather to go away from home out of the body, and to come home to the Lord.

9. Therefore we also are striving to be pleasing to Him, whether being at home, or being away from home.

10. For we all must appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive the things done through the body, according to what he did, whether good or bad.

The Ministry of Reconciliation

11. Therefore knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, and we have been made known to God; and I also hope to have been known in your consciences.

12. For we do not again commend ourselves to you, but are giving you occasion of glorying on our behalf, that you may have it toward the ones boasting before the face and not in heart.

13. For if we were out of our mind, it was to God; if we are clear-minded, it is for you.

14. For the love of Christ constrains us, judging this, that if One died for all, then the all died;

15. and He died for all, that the living ones may live no more to themselves, but to the One dying for them and having been raised.

16. So as we now know no one according to flesh, but even if we have known Christ according to flesh, yet now we no longer know Him so.

17. So then if anyone is in Christ, that one is a new creation; the old things have passed away; behold, all things have come to be new!

18. And all things are from God, the One having reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and having given to us the ministry of reconciliation,

19. as, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not charging their deviations to them, and putting the Word of reconciliation in us.

20. Then on behalf of Christ, we are ambassadors, as God is exhorting through us, we beseech on behalf of Christ, Be reconciled to God.

21. For He made the One who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
