2 Corinthians 6

1 And working together with him, we are also encouraging you * to not accept the grace of God in vain; 2 (for* he says, ' I heard you at an acceptable time and I helped you in a day of salvation;' {Isa 49: 8} behold, now is the acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation), 3 giving no one a stumbling block in anything, in order that the service from us might not be blamed. 4 But we are commending ourselves in everything, as servants of God: in much endurance, in afflictions, in calamities, in distresses, 5 in lashes, in prisons, in unrest, in labors, in sleeplessness, in fasts; 6 in purity, in knowledge, in patience, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in non, pretended love*, 7 in the word of truth, in the power of God; through the weapons of righteousness from the right hand and from the left hand, 8 through glory and dishonor, through defamation and good, repute; as misleaders and yet true; 9 as being unrecognized and yet being fully known; as dying and behold, we live; as being disciplined and yet not being slain; 10 as sorrowful, yet even habitually rejoicing; as poor, yet enriching many; as having nothing and yet having all things.

11 O Corinthians, our mouth has opened to you*, our heart has been widened. 12 You* are not distressed by us, but you* are distressed by your, your* own affections, 13 but the same as recompense, (I speak to you as to my children). You* also, be widened in your * heart s.

14 Do not become unequally yoked with unbelieving ones; for* what partnership has righteousness and lawlessness? And what fellowship has light with darkness? 15 And what agreement has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with unbelieving ones? 16 And what alliance has a temple of God with idols? For* you* are a temple of the living God; just, as God said, ' I will be dwelling among them and will be walking among them, and I will be their God and they will be a people to me.' 17 Hence' Come out from the midst of them and be separate*, ' says the Lord, ' And touch no unclean thing, and I will accept you* 18 and will be a Father to you* and you* will be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty.' {Lev. 26: 11-12; 2Sam. 7: 7, 14; Isa 52: 11; Jer. 32: 38, 51: 45; Ezek. 20: 34, 41, 37: 27; Amos 4: 13}
