14 aDo not be 1bound together with bunbelievers; for what cpartnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?
15 Or what aharmony has Christ with 1Belial, or 2what has a bbeliever in common with an cunbeliever?
16 Or awhat agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are bthe temple of cthe living God; just as God said,
“dI will edwell in them and fwalk among them;
And I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
17 “aTherefore, bcome out from their midst and be separate,” says the Lord.
“And do not touch what is unclean;
And I will welcome you.
18 “aAnd I will be a father to you,
And you shall be bsons and daughters to Me,”
Says the Lord Almighty.
