2 Corinthians 5:6-10 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

Therefore we be hardy always, and know that the while we be in this body, we go in pilgrimage from the Lord;[a]

for we walk by faith, and not by clear sight.

But we be hardy [Forsooth we be hardy], and have good will, more to be in pilgrimage from the body, and to be present to God.

And therefore we strive, whether absent, whether present, to please him.

10 For it behooveth us all to be showed before the throne of Christ, that every man tell the proper things of the body[b], as he hath done, either good, either evil.

2 Corinthians 5:6-10 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Therefore we are always of good cheer. And we know well that as long as we are at home in the body, we are away from God. For we walk in faith, and see not. Nevertheless, we are of good comfort – and yet would rather be away from the body, and be present with the Lord.

And so whether we are at home or away from home, we endeavour to please him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that every person may receive the works of his body, according to what he has done, whether it be good or bad.

2 Corinthians 5:6-10 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

[a]Therefore we are always [b]bold, though we know that while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord.

(For we walk by [c]faith, and not by sight.)

Nevertheless, we are [d]bold, and love rather to remove out of the body, and to dwell with the Lord.

Wherefore also we [e]covet, that both dwelling at home, and removing from home, we may be acceptable to him.

10 [f]For we must all [g]appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that every man may receive the things which are done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or evil.

Footnotes:

  1. 2 Corinthians 5:6 He inferreth upon that sentence which went next before, thus, Therefore, seeing that we know by the Spirit, that we are strangers so long as we are here, we patiently suffer this tarriance (for we are now so with God, that we behold him but by faith, and are therefore now absent from him) but so that we aspire and have a longing always to him: therefore also we behave ourselves so, that we may be acceptable to him, both while we live here, and when we go from hence to him.
  2. 2 Corinthians 5:6 He calleth them (bold) which are always resolved with a quiet and settled mind to suffer what dangers soever, nothing doubting, but their end shall be happy.
  3. 2 Corinthians 5:7 Faith of those things which we hope for, and not having God presently in our view.
  4. 2 Corinthians 5:8 And yet we are in such sort bold and do so pass on our pilgrimage with a valiant and quiet mind, that yet notwithstanding, we had rather depart hence to the Lord.
  5. 2 Corinthians 5:9 And seeing it is so, we strive to live so, that both in this our pilgrimage here we may please him, and that at length we may be received home to him.
  6. 2 Corinthians 5:10 That no man might think it to pertain to all, which he spoke of that heavenly glory, he addeth, that every one shall first render an account of his pilgrimage, after that he is departed from hence.
  7. 2 Corinthians 5:10 We must all appear personally, and inquiry shall be made of us, that all may see, how we have lived.

2 Corinthians 5:6-10 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (for we walk by faith, not by sight:) we are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 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 Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
