“For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:16 Therefore - Because of this grace, we faint not. The outward man - The body. The inward man - The soul.
2Co 4:16 For which cause. Moved by faith, hope, the love of souls and desire for the glory of God, we faint not; do not for a moment give way and relax our efforts. Though our outward man is perished. Though our body waste away under the trials, or is threatened with death. The inward [man]. The immaterial nature in contrast with the material body. See Ro 7:22 Eph 3:16. Is renewed day by day. His spiritual strength is constantly renewed by Christ.
