Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Corinthians 5:3

_ _ If so be, etc. — Our “desire” holds good, should the Lord’s coming find us alive. Translate, “If so be that having ourselves clothed (with our natural body, compare 2 Corinthians 5:4) we shall not be found naked (stripped of our present body).”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Corinthians 5:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Corinthians 5:3

If being clothed — That is, with the image of God, while we are in the body. We shall not be found naked — Of the wedding garment.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Corinthians 5:3

(2) If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

(2) An exposition of the former saying: we do not without reason desire to be clad with the heavenly house, that is, with that everlasting and immortal glory, as with a garment. For when we depart from here we will not remain naked, having cast off the covering of this body, but we will take our bodies again, which will put on as it were another garment besides. And therefore we do not sigh because of the weariness of this life, but because of the desire of a better life. Neither is this desire in vain, for we are made to that life, the pledge of which we have, even the Spirit of adoption.
