6 We then, as aworkers together with him, bbeseech you also cthat ye receive not the grace of God in vain. 2 (For he saith, dI have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: ebehold, now is the faccepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) 3 gGiving no offence in any thing, hthat the ministry be not blamed: 4 But in all things †approving ourselves as ithe ministers of God, kin much patience, in afflictions, in lmnecessities, min distresses, 5 nIn stripes, nin imprisonments, ||in tumults, noin labours, oin watchings, oin pfastings; 6 By pureness, by knowledge, qby longsuffering, qby kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by rlove unfeigned, 7 By sthe word of truth, by tthe power of God, by uthe warmour of righteousness xon the right hand and on the left, 8 By honour and ydishonour, by evil report and good report: as zdeceivers, and yet true; 9 As unknown, and yet awell known; bas dying, and, behold, we live; cas chastened, and not killed; 10 dAs sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; eas poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet fpossessing all things.
11 O ye gCorinthians, our mouth is open unto you, hour iheart is enlarged. 12 Ye are not kstraitened in us, but lye are kstraitened in your own bowels. 13 Now for a recompence in the same, (I speak as unto mmy children,) be ye also enlarged. 14 nBe ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for owhat fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and pwhat communion qhath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for rye are the temple of sthe living God; as God hath said, tuI will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore xcome out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 yAnd will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord zAlmighty.
