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* 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 an unbelieving one? 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.
