2 Corinthians 5:9-11 Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)
Therefore We Are Ambitious To Please Him By Persuading People
9 Therefore[a] we indeed are ambitious[b] to be pleasing to Him— whether being at-home or being away-from-home. 10 For we all must appear[c] before the judgment-seat of Christ in order that each one might receive-back[d] the things done in[e] the body, in-accordance-with the things which he practiced, whether good or bad. 11 Therefore knowing the fear[f] of the Lord, we are persuading[g] people.
Now Our Heart Has Been Made Known To God, And I Hope To You. Boast In Us
Now[h] we have been made known to God. And I hope that we also have been made known in your consciences.
2 Corinthians 5:9-11 New International Version (NIV)
9 So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.
The Ministry of Reconciliation
11 Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade others. What we are is plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience.
