5 Now he who has made us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a witness of what is to come.
6 So, then, we are ever without fear, and though conscious that while we are in the body we are away from the Lord,
7 (For we are walking by faith, not by seeing,)
8 We are without fear, desiring to be free from the body, and to be with the Lord.
9 For this reason we make it our purpose, in the body or away from it, to be well-pleasing to him.
