1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received a, we faint not;
2 But have a the hidden things of b, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God c; but by manifestation of the d commending ourselves to every man’s e in the sight of God.
3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the a of this b hath c the d of them which e, lest the f of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the g of h, should shine unto them.
5 For we a not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your b for Jesus’ sake.
6 For God, who a the light to shine out of darkness, hath b in our hearts, to give the c of the knowledge of the d of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the a may be of God, and not of us.
8 We are a on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in b;
9 a, but not forsaken; cast down, but not b;
10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
11 For we which live are alway delivered unto a for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our b flesh.
12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.
13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I a, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore b;
14 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the a of many redound to the glory of God.
16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the a man is renewed day by day.
17 For our light a, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and b c of glory;
18 While we look not at the things which are a, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not b are c.
