2 Corinthians 5:17

Context
5:17 So then, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; what is old has passed away 1  – look, what is new 2  has come! 3 

2 Corinthians 5:21

Context
5:21 God 4  made the one who did not know sin 5  to be sin for us, so that in him 6  we would become the righteousness of God.

1 tn Grk “old things have passed away.”

2 tc Most mss have the words τὰ πάντα (ta panta, “all things”; cf. KJV “behold, all things are become new”), some after καίνα (kaina, “new”; D2 K L P Ψ 104 326 945 2464 pm) and others before it (6 33 81 614 630 1241 1505 1881 pm). The reading without τὰ πάντα, however, has excellent support from both the Western and Alexandrian texttypes (Ì46 א B C D* F G 048 0243 365 629 1175 1739 pc co), and the different word order of the phrase which includes it (“all things new” or “new all things”) in the ms tradition indicates its secondary character. This secondary addition may have taken place because of assimilation to τὰ δὲ πάντα (ta de panta, “and all [these] things”) that begins the following verse.

3 tn Grk “new things have come [about].”

4 tn Grk “He”; the referent (God) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

5 sn The one who did not know sin is a reference to Jesus Christ.

6 sn That is, “in Christ.”
