In interpretations of 2 Corinthians 12 horis and ektos are usually treated as the same. But is there another possibility? According to the dictionary, horis usually means "without any" rather than "out of." There is a big difference between being "out of" your house and being "without any" house.

Is it possible that Paul uses horis in this sense to suggest a state of being seemingly without any body; meaning, the body is as if dissolved, gone. That as distinct from being out of a body that still exists: ektos.

Aren't you troubled by the fact that horis and ektos are treated equally as opposite to en (in) in both these sentences? It is obvious that the Apostle speaks about an experience in which the body could not be sensed. What is the mad reason that makes you try to find what? If he was "outside" his body or "without" a body? Are you maybe out of your mind (or without it)? :)

'ektos' means-without, outside; out of, far from;without, except.

'xoris' means seperately, asunder, apart, alone; differently, otherwise; except; far from, without.

As far as interpretation of the line isn't it really up to your best notion of what fits best with what is being conveyed?
