1SINCE God in his mercy has given us this ministry, we never lose heart.

2We have renounced the deeds that people hide for very shame; we do not practise cunning or distort the word of God. It is by declaring the truth openly that we recommend ourselves to the conscience of our fellow-men in the sight of God.

3If our gospel is veiled at all, it is veiled only for those on the way to destruction;

4their unbelieving minds are so blinded by the god of this passing age that the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, cannot dawn upon them and bring them light.

5It is not ourselves that we proclaim; we proclaim Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus's sake.

6For the God who said, “Out of darkness light shall shine,” has caused his light to shine in our hearts, the light which is knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

7But we have only earthenware jars to hold this treasure, and this proves that such transcendent power does not come from us; it is God's alone.

8We are hard pressed, but never cornered; bewildered, but never at our wits' end;

9hunted, but never abandoned to our fate; struck down, but never killed.

10Wherever we go we carry with us in our body the death that Jesus died, so that in this body also the life that Jesus lives may be revealed.

11For Jesus's sake we are all our life being handed over to death, so that the life of Jesus may be revealed in this mortal body of ours.

12Thus death is at work in us, but life in you.

13But scripture says, “I believed, and therefore I spoke out,” and we too, in the same spirit of faith, believe and therefore speak out;

14for we know that he who raised the Lord Jesus to life will with Jesus raise us too, and bring us to his presence, and you with us.

15Indeed, all this is for your sake, so that, as the abounding grace of God is shared by more and more, the greater may be the chorus of thanksgiving that rises to the glory of God.

16No wonder we do not lose heart! Though our outward humanity is in decay, yet day by day we are inwardly renewed.

17Our troubles are slight and short-lived, and their outcome is an eternal glory which far outweighs them,

18provided our eyes are fixed, not on the things that are seen, but on the things that are unseen; for what is seen is transient, what is unseen is eternal.
