047:005:001
For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved,
we have a building of God,
an house not made with hands,
eternal in the heavens.


047:005:002
For in this we groan,
earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:


047:005:003
If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.


047:005:004
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.


047:005:005
Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God,
who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.


047:005:006
Therefore we are always confident,
knowing that,
whilst we are at home in the body,
we are absent from the Lord:


047:005:007
(For we walk by faith,
not by sight:)


047:005:008
We are confident,
I say,
and willing rather to be absent from the body,
and to be present with the Lord.


047:005:009
Wherefore we labour,
that,
whether present or absent,
we may be accepted of him.


047:005:010
For we must all appear before the judgment 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.


047:005:011
Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord,
we persuade men;
but we are made manifest unto God;
and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.


047:005:012
For we commend not ourselves again unto you,
but give you occasion to glory on our behalf,
that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance,
and not in heart.


047:005:013
For whether we be beside ourselves,
it is to God:
or whether we be sober,
it is for your cause.


047:005:014
For the love of Christ constraineth us;
because we thus judge,
that if one died for all,
then were all dead:


047:005:015
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.


047:005:016
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.


047:005:017
Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
behold,
all things are become new.


047:005:018
And all things are of God,
who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ,
and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;


047:005:019
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.


047:005:020
Now then we are ambassadors for Christ,
as though God did beseech you by us:
we pray you in Christ's stead,
be ye reconciled to God.


047:005:021
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.
