2nd Corinthians Chapter 6
6:1 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye
receive not the grace of God in vain.
6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day
of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time;
behold, now is the day of salvation.)
6:3 Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:
6:4 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in
much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,
6:5 In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings,
6:6 By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the
Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,
6:7 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of
righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
6:8 By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as
deceivers, and yet true;
6:9 As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as
chastened, and not killed;
6:10 As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich;
as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.
6:11 O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is
6:12 Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own
6:13 Now for a recompence in the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be
ye also enlarged.
6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what
fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion
hath light with darkness?
6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that
believeth with an infidel?
6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are
the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them,
and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the
Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and
daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
