    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:3

    si tambin furemos hallados vestidos, y no desnudos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 5:3

    Verse 3. If so be that being
    clothed] That is, fully prepared in this life for the glory of God; We shall not be found naked.] Destitute in that future state of that Divine image which shall render us capable of enjoying an endless glory.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. If so be that being
    clothed , etc..] This supposition is made with respect to the saints who shall be alive at Christ's second coming, who will not be stripped of their bodies, and so will not be found naked, or disembodied, and shall have a glory at once put upon them, both soul and body; or these words are an inference from the saints' present clothing, to their future clothing, thus; seeing we are clothed, have not only put on the new man, and are clothed and adorned with the graces of the Spirit, but are arrayed with the best robe, the wedding garment, the robe of Christ's righteousness, we shall not be found naked ; but shall be clothed upon with the heavenly glory, as soon as we are dismissed from hence. Some read these words as a wish, O that we were clothed, that we might not be found naked! and so is expressive of one of the sighs, and groans, and earnest desires of the saints in their present situation after the glories of another world.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-8 - The
    believer not only is well assured by faith that there is anothe and a happy life after this is ended, but he has good hope, throug grace, of heaven as a dwelling-place, a resting-place, a hiding-place In our Father's house there are many mansions, whose Builder and Make is God. The happiness of the future state is what God has prepared for those that love him: everlasting habitations, not like the earthl tabernacles, the poor cottages of clay, in which our souls now dwell that are mouldering and decaying, whose foundations are in the dust The body of flesh is a heavy burden, the calamities of life are a heav load. But believers groan, being burdened with a body of sin, an because of the many corruptions remaining and raging within them. Deat will strip us of the clothing of flesh, and all the comforts of life as well as end all our troubles here below. But believing souls shal be clothed with garments of praise, with robes of righteousness an glory. The present graces and comforts of the Spirit are earnests of everlasting grace and comfort. And though God is with us here, by his Spirit, and in his ordinances, yet we are not with him as we hope to be. Faith is for this world, and sight is for the other world. It is our duty, and it will be our interest, to walk by faith, till we liv by sight. This shows clearly the happiness to be enjoyed by the soul of believers when absent from the body, and where Jesus makes known his glorious presence. We are related to the body and to the Lord; eac claims a part in us. But how much more powerfully the Lord pleads for having the soul of the believer closely united with himself! Thou ar one of the souls I have loved and chosen; one of those given to me What is death, as an object of fear, compared with being absent from the Lord!

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    3. If so be (ei ge). Assuming that.

    Being clothed. Compare Job x. 11.

    Naked (gumnoi). Without a body. The word was used by Greek writers of disembodied spirits. See the quotation from Plato's "Gorgias" in note on Luke xii. 20; also "Cratylus," 403, where, speaking of Pluto, Socrates says: "The foolish fears which people have of him, such as the fear of being always with him after death, and of the soul denuded (gumnh) of the body going to him." Stanley cites Herodotus' story of Melissa, the Corinthian queen, who appeared to her husband after death, entreating him to burn dresses for her as a covering for her disembodied spirit (v., 92). The whole expression, being clothed - naked is equivalent to we shall not be found naked because we shall be clothed.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    5:3 {Being clothed} (endusamenoi). First aorist middle participle, having put on the garment. {Naked} (gumnoi). That is, disembodied spirits, "like the souls in Sheol, without form, and void of all power of activity" (Plummer).
