The "light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ" (4.6) given to believers by the very one who called light out of darkness meets with an immediate problem: this treasure is housed in clay pots. In 4.1-15 Paul illustrates how God uses this contrast to display his own power and life and how this display multiplies worship.

esv
Ἔχομεν δὲ τὸν θησαυρὸν τοῦτον ἐν ὀστρακίνοις σκεύεσιν,
But we have this treasure in jars of clay,
ἵνα ἡ ὑπερβολὴ τῆς δυνάμεως ᾖ τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ μὴ ἐξ ἡμῶν•
to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.

always carrying in the body the death of Jesus,
ἵνα καὶ ἡ ζωὴ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ ἐν τῷ σώματι ἡμῶν φανερωθῇ .
so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.
bilateral
ἀεὶ γὰρ ἡμεῖς οἱ ζῶντες εἰς θάνατον παραδιδόμεθα διὰ Ἰησοῦν,
For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake,
ἵνα καὶ ἡ ζωὴ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ φανερωθῇ ἐν τῇ θνητῇ σαρκὶ ἡμῶν.
so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

διὸ ἐλάλησα ,
and so I spoke,"

we also believe,
διὸ καὶ λαλοῦμεν ,

εἰδότες ὅτι ὁ ἐγείρας τὸν κύριον Ἰησοῦν καὶ ἡμᾶς σὺν Ἰησοῦ ἐγερεῖ
knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus
καὶ παραστήσει σὺν ὑμῖν.
and bring us with you into his presence.
series
τὰ γὰρ πάντα διʼ ὑμᾶς,
For it is all for your sake,
ἵνα ἡ χάρις πλεονάσασα διὰ τῶν πλειόνων τὴν εὐχαριστίαν περισσεύσῃ εἰς τὴν δόξαν τοῦ θεοῦ.
so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.
