2 Coríntios 5

1 For we know that if our earthly tabernacle house be destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

2 For indeed in this we groan, ardently desiring to have put on our house which {is} from heaven;

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

4 For indeed we who are in the tabernacle groan, being burdened; while yet we do not wish to be unclothed, but clothed, that {what is} mortal may be swallowed up by life.

5 Now he that has wrought us for this very thing {is} God, who also has given to us the earnest of the Spirit.

6 Therefore {we are} always confident, and know that while present in the body we are absent from the Lord,

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

8 we are confident, I say, and pleased rather to be absent from the body and present with the Lord.

9 Wherefore also we are zealous, whether present or absent, to be agreeable to him.

10 For we must all be manifested before the judgment-seat of the Christ, that each may receive the things {done} in the body, according to those he has done, whether {it be} good or evil.

11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord we persuade men, but have been manifested to God, and I hope also that we have been manifested in your consciences.

12 {For} we do not again commend ourselves to you, but {we are} giving to you occasion of boast in our behalf, that ye may have {such} with those boasting in countenance, and not in heart.

13 For whether we are beside ourselves, {it is} to God; or are sober, {it is} for you.

14 For the love of the Christ constrains us, having judged this: that one died for all, then all have died;

15 and he died for all, that they who live should no longer live to themselves, but to him who died for them and has been raised.

16 So that *we* henceforth know no one according to flesh; but if even we have known Christ according to flesh, yet now we know {him thus} no longer.

17 So if any one {be} in Christ, {there is} a new creation; the old things have passed away; behold all things have become new:

18 and all things {are} of the God who has reconciled us to himself by {Jesus} Christ, and given to us the ministry of that reconciliation:

19 how that God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, not reckoning to them their offences; and putting in us the word of that reconciliation.

20 We are ambassadors therefore for Christ, God as {it were} beseeching by us, we entreat for Christ, Be reconciled to God.

21 Him who knew not sin he has made sin for us, that *we* might become God's righteousness in him.
