2 Corinthians 5 - Israeli Authorized Version

Awaiting the New Body

1. For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of Elohim, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

2. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

3. If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

4. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

5. Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is Elohim, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Ruach.

6. Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from YY :

7. (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

8. We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with YY .

9. Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.

10. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Moshiach; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

The Ministry of Reconciliation

11. Knowing therefore the terror of YY , we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto Elohim; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.

12. For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart.

13. For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to Elohim: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.

14. For the love of Moshiach constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:

15. And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.

16. Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Moshiach after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.

17. Therefore if any man be in Moshiach, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

18. And all things are of Elohim, who hath reconciled us to himself by Y'shuw`a HaMoshiach, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

19. To wit, that Elohim was in Moshiach, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

20. Now then we are ambassadors for Moshiach, as though Elohim did beseech you by us: we pray you in the stead of Moshiach, be ye reconciled to Elohim.

21. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of Elohim in him.
