2 Corinthians 5 - AMP

2 Here indeed, in this , we sigh and groan inwardly, because we yearn to be clothed over with our heavenly dwelling, 3 So that by putting it on we may not be found naked (without a body). 4 For while we are still in this tent, we groan under the burden and sigh deeply (weighed down, depressed, oppressed)--not that we want to put off the body (the clothing of the spirit), but rather that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal (our dying body) may be swallowed up by life . 5 Now He Who has fashioned us for this very thing is God, Who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee . 6 So then, we are always full of good and hopeful and confident courage; we know that while we are at home in the body, we are abroad from the home with the Lord . 7 For we walk by faith not by sight or appearance. 8 we have confident and hopeful courage and are pleased rather to be away from home out of the body and be at home with the Lord. 9 Therefore, whether we are at home or away from home , we are constantly ambitious and strive earnestly to be pleasing to Him. 10 For we must all appear and be revealed as we are before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive according to what he has done in the body, whether good or evil . 11 Therefore, being conscious of fearing the Lord with respect and reverence, we seek to win people over . But Joseph Thayer, A Greek-English Lexicon.what sort of persons we are is plainly recognized and thoroughly understood by God, and I hope that it is plainly recognized and thoroughly understood also by your consciences (your inborn discernment). 12 We are not commending ourselves to you again, but we are providing you with an occasion and incentive to be proud of us, so that you may have a reply for those who pride themselves on surface appearances , although their heart is devoid of them. 13 For if we are beside ourselves , it is for God and concerns Him; if we are in our right mind, it is for your benefit, 14 For the love of Christ controls and urges and impels us, because we are of the opinion and conviction that One died for all, then all died; 15 And He died for all, so that all those who live might live no longer to and for themselves, but to and for Him Who died and was raised again for their sake. 16 Consequently, from now on we estimate and regard no one from a human point of view . even though we once did estimate Christ from a human viewpoint and as a man, yet now we know Him no longer . 17 Therefore if any person is in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come! 18 But all things are from God, Who through Jesus Christ reconciled us to Himself and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation . 19 It was God in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Himself, not counting up and holding against their trespasses , and committing to us the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor). 20 So we are Christ's ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor and be reconciled to God. 21 For our sake He made Christ to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become the righteousness of God .
