How Does the SDA Clear Word Bible Compare to God's Word?



2 Corinthians 5:1-10 (King James Version)

1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.

6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:

7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.

10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.


2 Corinthians 5:1-10 (New International Version)

1 Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.

2 Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling,

3 because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked.

4 For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.

5 Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.

6 Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord.

7 We live by faith, not by sight.

8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

9 So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.

10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.

2 Corinthians 5:1-10 (SDA Clear Word Bible)

1 We know that if this earthly body which we now inhabit should be destroyed, we have a new body waiting for us, not one shaped in a womb, but an immortal body made by the hand of God.

2 This is the body with which we really desired to be clothed.

3 If we were clothed in that, we would no longer have to fear nakedness.

4 But, since we're still living in our earthly bodies, we suffer and groan our way through life. Don't get the idea from this that we long to die. We groan because we wish our frail mortality could be exchanged for the vibrancy of immortality.

5 God's original intention for mankind is still the same. The Holy Spirit is God's pledge that His original plan for us has not changed.

6 That's why we can speak with such confidence, even though we're still living in our mortal bodies and away from the Lord.

7 Actually, we are not away from the Lord. He is present, not to sight but to faith.

8 That's what faith is all about. We would like to be there with the Lord rather than being here.

9 But whether we are here or there isn't the point. Our great desire is to be more like Christ and to show Him how much we love Him by obeying Him.

10 We will all be judged by Christ and He will hold us accountable for what we have done in this body of ours, whether it was good or bad.
