2 Corinthians 5:7 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

By sight (διὰ εἴδους)

The correct rendering is appearance. The word is not used actively in the sense of vision. Faith is contrasted with the actual appearance of heavenly things. Hence the marginal reading of the Rev. should go into the text.
