2 Corinthians 4:16 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Outward man - inward man

The material and spiritual natures.

Perish (διαφθείρεται)

Rev., much better, is decaying. Perish implies destruction: the idea is that of progressive decay.

Is renewed (ἀνακαινοῦται)

Better, is being renewed, the process of renewal going on along with the process of decay. Stanley cites a line attributed to Michael Angelo: "The more the marble wastes the more the statue grows." Compare Euripides: "Time does not depress your spirit, but it grows young again: your body, however, is weak" ("Heraclidae," 702, 703)

Day by day (ἡμέρᾳ καὶ ἡμέρᾳ)

Lit., by day and day. A Hebrew form of expression.
