Werkend 19 & 20 July 2014. 
[Matthew 7:7-8]
7. "Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking (reverently) and (the door) will be opened to you.
8. "For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, (the door) will be opened."

1. English - (Amplified Bible Version)
2 Corinthians 5:13-21]
13. For if we are beside ourselves (mad, as some say), it is for God and concerns Him; if we are in our right mind, it is for your benefit. 
14. For the love of Christ controls and urges and compels us, because we are of the opinion and conviction that (if) One died for all, then all died; 
15. And He died for all, so that all those who live might live no longer to and for themselves, but to and for Him Who died and was raised again for their sake. 
16. Consequently, from now on we estimate and regard no one from a (purely) human point of view (in terms of natural standards of value). (No), even though we once did estimate Christ from a human viewpoint and as a man, yet now (we have such knowledge of Him that) we know Him no longer (in terms of the flesh).
17. Therefore if any person is (ingrafted) in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old (previous moral and spiritual condition) has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!
18. But all things are from God, Who through Jesus Christ reconciled us to Himself (received us into favour, brought us into harmony with Himself) and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation (that by word and deed we might aim to bring others into harmony with Him).
19. It was God (Personally, present) in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favour with Himself, not counting up and holding against (men) their trespasses (but cancelling them), and committing to us the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favour).
20. So we are Christ's ambassadors. God making His appeal as it were through us. We (as Christ's personal representatives) beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favour (now offered to you), and be reconciled to God.  
21. For our sakes He made Christ (virtually) to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become (endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of) the righteousness of God (what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship  with Him. by His goodness.) 

[Matthéüs 7:7-8]
7. "Bid, en vir julle sal gegee word; soek, en julle sal vind; klop, en vir julle sal oopgemaak word. 
8. "Want elkeen wat bid, ontvang; en hy wat soek, vind; en vir hom wat klop sal oopgemaak word."

2. Afrikaans - (Ou Afrikaanse Vertaling)
[2 Korinthiërs 5:13-21]
13. Want as ons uitsinnig is, is dit tot eer van God; en as ons by ons verstand is, is dit om julle ontwil. 
14. Want die liefde van Christus dring ons,
15. Omdat ons van oordeel is, dat as een vir almal gesterf het, hulle dan almal gesterf het; en Hy het vir almal gesterwe, sodat die wat lewe, nie meer vir hulleself moet lewe nie, maar vir Hom wat vir hulle gesterf het, en opgewek is. 
16. Ons ken dus van nou af niemand meer in die vlees nie; en al het ons ook Chtisfus in die vlees geken, nou ken ons ons Hom tóg nie meer so nie. 
17. Daarom, as iemand in Christus is, is hy 'n nuwe skepsel; die ou dinge het verbygegaan, kyk, dit het alles nuut geword!
18. En dit is alles uit God wat ons met Homself versoen het deur Jesus Christus en ons die bediening van die versoening gegee het,   
19. Naamlik dat God in Christus die wêreld met Homself versoen het, deur hulle hul misdade nie toe te reken nie en die woord van die versoening aan ons toe te vertrou. 
20. Ons tree dan op as gesante om Christus wil, asof God deur ons vermaan. Ons bid julle om Christus wil: Laat julle met God versoen
21. Want Hy het Hom wat geen sonde geken het nie, sonde vir ons gemaak, sodat ons kan word geregtigheid van God in Hom.
