16 Therefore we faint not, [a]but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is [b]renewed daily.
17 For our [c]light affliction which is but for a moment, causeth unto us a far most excellent and an eternal weight of [d]glory:
18 While we look not on the things which are seen, but on the things which are not seen for the things which are seen, are temporal: but the things which are not seen, are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:16He addeth as it were a triumphant song, how that he is outwardly afflicted, but inwardly he profiteth daily: and passeth not at all for all the miseries that may be sustained in this life, in comparison of that most constant and eternal glory.
2 Corinthians 4:16Gathereth new strength, that the outward man be not overcome with the miseries which come freshly one upon the neck of another, being maintained and upholden with the strength of the inward man.
2 Corinthians 4:17Afflictions are not called light, as though they were light of themselves, but because they pass away quickly, when as indeed our whole life is of no long continuance.
