2 Corinthians 5:1

Context
Living by Faith, Not by Sight

5:1 For we know that if our earthly house, the tent we live in, 1  is dismantled, 2  we have a building from God, a house not built by human hands, that is eternal in the heavens.

2 Corinthians 5:4

Context
5:4 For we groan while we are in this tent, 3  since we are weighed down, 4  because we do not want to be unclothed, but clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.

1 sn The expression the tent we live in refers to “our earthly house, our body.” Paul uses the metaphor of the physical body as a house or tent, the residence of the immaterial part of a person.

2 tn Or “destroyed.”

3 sn See the note in 5:1 on the phrase the tent we live in.

4 tn Or “we are burdened.”
