1 For we know that if our earthly tabernacle house be destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
2 For indeed in this we groan, ardently desiring to have put on our house which [is] from heaven;
3 if indeed being also clothed we shall not be found naked.
4 For indeed we who are in the tabernacle groan, being burdened; while yet we do not wish to be unclothed, but clothed, that [what is] mortal may be swallowed up by life.
5 Now he that has wrought us for this very thing [is] God, who also has given to us the earnest of the Spirit.
