2 Corinthians 5:1

If--be dissolved (ean--kataluthi).
Third class condition, ean and first aorist passive subjunctive. The very word used (kataluw) for striking down a tent.

The earthly house of our tabernacle (h epigeiov hmwn oikia tou skhnouv).
Rather, "If our earthly (see on 1 Corinthians 15:40 for epigeiov) house of the tent (skhnov, another form of skhnh, tent, from root ska, to cover)." Appositive genitive, the house (oikia) is the tent.

We have (exomen).
Present indicative. We possess the title to it now by faith. "Faith is the title-deed (upostasiv) to things hoped for" (Hebrews 11:7).

A building from God (oikodomhn ek teou).
This oikodomh (found in Aristotle, Plutarch, LXX, etc., and papyri, though condemned by Atticists) is more substantial than the skhnov.

Not made with hands (axeiropoihton).
Found first in Mark 14:58 in charge against Jesus before the Sanhedrin (both the common verbal xeiropoihton and the newly made vernacular axeiropoihton, same verbal with a privative). Elsewhere only here and Colossians 2:11. Spiritual, eternal home.
