2 Corinthians 6

CHAPTER 6

Now is the Day of Deliverance

And working together also we appeal [2to not 4in 5vain 6the 7favor 8of God 3receive 1for you], (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); in no way [3in 4anything 1giving 2a cause for stumbling], that [3should not 4be scoffed at 1the 2service]; but in everything commending ourselves as God's servants, in [2endurance 1much], in afflictions, in necessities, in straits, in strokes, in imprisonments, in commotions, in toils, in sleeplessnesses, in fastings, in purity, in knowledge, in leniency, in graciousness, in [2spirit 1holy], in love unpretentious, in the word of truth, in power of God, through the weapons of righteousness of the right and left, through glory and dishonor, through evil report and good report; as deluded, and yet true; as being not known, and yet being recognized; as dying, and behold we live; as ones being corrected, and not being put to death; 10 as 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. 12 You have not been restricted by us, [4you have been restricted 1but 2in 3your feelings of compassion], 13 but the same compensation (as to children I speak) [2be widened 3also 1you]. 14 Do not become yoked with a different kind -- unbelievers. For what sharing righteousness and lawlessness? And what fellowship light with darkness? 15 And what harmony Christ with Belial? Or what portion believing with unbelieving? 16 And 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. 17 Therefore 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. 18 And I will be to you for father, and you shall be to me for sons and daughters, says the Lord almighty.
