2 Corinthians 6


Now is the Day of Deliverance

1And working together also we appeal [2to not 4in 5vain 6the 7favor 8of God 3receive 1for you], 2(for he says, [2time 1In an accepted] I heeded you, and in the day of deliverance I helped you; behold, now [2time 1is a well-received]; behold, now is the day of deliverance); 3in no way [3in 4anything 1giving 2a cause for stumbling], that [3should not 4be scoffed at 1the 2service]; 4but in everything commending ourselves as God's servants, in [2endurance 1much], in afflictions, in necessities, in straits, 5in strokes, in imprisonments, in commotions, in toils, in sleeplessnesses, in fastings, 6in purity, in knowledge, in leniency, in graciousness, in [2spirit 1holy], in love unpretentious, 7in the word of truth, in power of God, through the weapons of righteousness of the right and left, 8through glory and dishonor, through evil report and good report; as deluded, and yet true; 9as being not known, and yet being recognized; as dying, and behold we live; as ones being corrected, and not being put to death; 10as grieving, but continually rejoicing; as poor, [3many 1but 2enriching]; as nothing having, and all things holding.

Be Not Unequally Yoked

11 Our mouth has been opened to you, O Corinthians, our heart widened. 12You have not been restricted by us, [4you have been restricted 1but 2in 3your feelings of compassion], 13but the same compensation (as to children I speak) [2be widened 3also 1you]. 14Do not become yoked with a different kind -- unbelievers. For what sharing righteousness and lawlessness? And what fellowship light with darkness? 15And what harmony Christ with Belial? Or what portion believing with unbelieving? 16And what accord a temple of God with idols? For you [2a temple 4God 1are 3of the living]. As God said that, I will dwell among them, and I will walk about; and I will be their God, and they will be to me a people. 17Therefore come forth from out of the midst of them, and be separated, says the Lord; and [2the unclean 1touch not]! and I will take you in. 18And I will be to you for father, and you shall be to me for sons and daughters, says the Lord almighty.
