2 Corinthians 5:1-4 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Our Future after Death

For we know that if our temporary, earthly dwelling[a] is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal dwelling[b] in the heavens, not made with hands. Indeed, we groan in this body, desiring to put on our dwelling from heaven, since, when we are clothed,[c] we will not be found naked. Indeed, we groan while we are in this tent, burdened as we are, because we do not want to be unclothed but clothed, so that mortality may be swallowed up by life.
