|2 Cor 6:1 And working together with Him, we also urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain--|
|2 Cor 6:2 for He says,
"AT THE ACCEPTABLE TIME I LISTENED TO YOU,
AND ON THE DAY OF SALVATION I HELPED YOU." Behold, now is "THE ACCEPTABLE TIME," behold, now is "THE DAY OF SALVATION"--
|2 Cor 6:3 giving no cause for offense in anything, so that the ministry will not be discredited,|
|2 Cor 6:4 but in everything commending ourselves as servants of God, in much endurance, in afflictions, in hardships, in distresses,|
|2 Cor 6:5 in beatings, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in hunger,|
|2 Cor 6:6 in purity, in knowledge, in patience, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in genuine love,|
|2 Cor 6:7 in the word of truth, in the power of God; by the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and the left,|
|2 Cor 6:8 by glory and dishonor, by evil report and good report; regarded as deceivers and yet true;|
|2 Cor 6:9 as unknown yet well-known, as dying yet behold, we live; as punished yet not put to death,|
|2 Cor 6:10 as sorrowful yet always rejoicing, as poor yet making many rich, as having nothing yet possessing all things.|
|2 Cor 6:11 ¶ Our mouth has spoken freely to you, O Corinthians, our heart is opened wide.|
|2 Cor 6:12 You are not restrained by us, but you are restrained in your own affections.|
|2 Cor 6:13 Now in a like exchange--I speak as to children--open wide to us also.|
|2 Cor 6:14 ¶ Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?|
|2 Cor 6:15 Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever?|
|2 Cor 6:16 Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said,
"I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK AMONG THEM;
AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.
|2 Cor 6:17 "Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE," says the Lord.
"AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN;
And I will welcome you.
|2 Cor 6:18 "And I will be a father to you,
And you shall be sons and daughters to Me,"
Says the Lord Almighty.
