    (porque por fe andamos, no por vista);

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 5:7

    Verse 7. For we
    walk by faith] While we are in the present state faith supplies the place of direct vision. In the future world we shall have sight-the utmost evidence of spiritual and eternal things; as we shall be present with them, and live in them. Here we have the testimony of God, and believe in their reality, because we cannot doubt his word. And to make this more convincing he gives us the earnest of his Spirit, which is a foretaste of glory.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. For we
    walk by faith, and not by sight .] Faith is a grace which answers many useful purposes; it is the eye of the soul, by which it looks to Christ for righteousness, peace, pardon, life, and salvation; the hand by which it receives him, and the foot by which it goes to him, and walks in him as it has received him; which denotes not a single act of faith, but a continued course of believing; and is expressive, not of a weak, but of a strong steady faith of glory and happiness, and of interest in it: and it is opposed to sight: by which is meant, not sensible communion, but the celestial vision: there is something of sight in faith; that is a seeing of the Son; and it is an evidence of things not seen, of the invisible glories of the other world; faith looks at, and has a glimpse of things not seen, which are eternal; but it is but seeing as through a glass darkly; it is not that full sight, face to face, which will be had hereafter, when faith is turned into vision.

    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!

    7. By sight (dia eidouv). The correct rendering is
    appearance. The word is not used actively in the sense of vision. Faith is contrasted with the actual appearance of heavenly things. Hence the marginal reading of the Rev. should go into the text.
