2 Corinthians 4
1Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we give up not;
2But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God-The Father deceitfully; but by manifestation of the tcommending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God-The Father.
3But if our Gospel (joyful message) be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious Gospel (joyful message) of Moshiach [Messiah], who is the image of God-The Father, should shine unto them.
5For we preach not ourselves, but Moshiach [Messiah] Yeshua [God is Salvation] the Lord - Kurios; and ourselves your servants for Yeshua [God is Salvation]’ sake.
6For God-The Father, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God-The Father in the face of Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah].
7But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God-The Father, and not of us.
8 [We are] troubled on every side, yet not distressed; [we are] perplexed, but not in despair;
9Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
10Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord - Kurios [he to whom a person belongs] Yeshua [God is Salvation], that the life also of Yeshua [God is Salvation] might be made manifest in our body.
11For we which live are always delivered unto death for Yeshua [God is Salvation]’ sake, that the life also of Yeshua [God is Salvation] might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
12So then death works in us, but life in you.
13We having the same Spirit [Ruach] of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
14Knowing that he which raised up the Lord - Kurios [he to whom a person belongs] Yeshua [God is Salvation] shall raise up us also by Yeshua [God is Salvation], and shall present [us] with you.
15For all things [are] for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God-The Father.
16For which cause we give up not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward [man] is renewed day by day.
17For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, works for us a far more exceeding [and] eternal weight of glory;
18While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen [are] temporal; but the things which are not seen [are] eternal.
