Second Corinthians 5


5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of [this] tabernacle
 were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made
 with hands, eternal in the heavens.
5:2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with
 our house which is from heaven:
5:3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
5:4 For we that are in [this] tabernacle do groan, being
 burdened: not because we would be unclothed, but clothed, that
 mortality might be swallowed up in life.
5:5 Now he that hath wrought us for this same thing [is] God,
 who also hath given to us the earnest of the Spirit.
5:6 Therefore [we are] always confident, knowing that, while we
 are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
5:8 We are confident, [I say], and willing rather to be absent
 from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
5:9 Wherefore we labor, that, whether present or absent, we may
 be accepted by him.
5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment-seat of Christ;
 that every one may receive the things [done] in [his] body,
 according to what he hath done, whether good or bad.
5:11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men;
 but we are made manifest to God; and I trust also are made
 manifest in your consciences.
5:12 For we commend not ourselves again to you, but give you
 occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to
 [answer] them who glory in appearance, and not in heart.
5:13 For whether we are beside ourselves, [it is] to God: or
 whether we are sober, [it is] for your cause.
5:14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus
 judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
5:15 And [that] he died for all, that they who live should not
 henceforth live to themselves, but to him who died for them,
 and rose again.
5:16 Wherefore henceforth we know no man according to the flesh:
 though indeed we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet
 now henceforth we know [him] no more.
5:17 Therefore, if any man [is] in Christ, [he is] a new
 creature: old things have passed away; behold, all things have
 become new.
5:18 And all things [are] from God, who hath reconciled us to
 himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of
 reconciliation;
5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world to
 himself, not imputing their trespasses to them; and hath
 committed to us the word of reconciliation.
5:20 Now then we are embassadors for Christ, as though God did
 beseech [you] by us: we pray [you] in Christ's stead, be ye
 reconciled to God.
5:21 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.
