5:2 For verily in this we groan, longing to be clothed upon with our habitation which is from heaven:
5:3 if so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
5:4 For indeed we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened; not for that we would be unclothed, but that we would be clothed upon, that what is mortal may be swallowed up of life.
5:5 Now he that wrought us for this very thing is God, who gave unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
5:7 (for we walk by faith, not by sight);
5:9 Wherefore also we make it our aim, whether at home or absent, to be well-pleasing unto him.
5:10 For we must all be made manifest before the judgment-seat of Christ; that each one may receive the things [done] in the body, according to what he hath done, whether [it be] good or bad.
5:12 We are not again commending ourselves unto you, but [speak] as giving you occasion of glorying on our behalf, that ye may have wherewith to answer them that glory in appearance, and not in heart.
5:13 For whether we are beside ourselves, it is unto God; or whether we are of sober mind, it is unto you.
5:14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that one died for all, therefore all died;
5:15 and he died for all, that they that live should no longer live unto themselves, but unto him who for their sakes died and rose again.
5:16 Wherefore we henceforth know no man after the flesh: even though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now we know [him so] no more.
5:17 Wherefore if any man is in Christ, [he is] a new creature: the old things are passed away; behold, they are become new.
5:19 to wit, that God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself, not reckoning unto them their trespasses, and having committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
5:21 Him who knew no sin he made [to be] sin on our behalf; that we might become the righteousness of God in him.
