“Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.”

“[He has also appropriated and acknowledged us as His by] putting His seal upon us and giving us His [Holy] Spirit in our hearts as the security deposit and guarantee [of the fulfillment of His promise].”

“Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.”

“Now He Who has fashioned us [preparing and making us fit] for this very thing is God, Who also has given us the [Holy] Spirit as a guarantee [of the fulfillment of His promise].”
—2 Corinthians 1:22, 5:5 (KJV/AMPC)
