2 Corinthians 6

But working together we indeed intreat you not to have received the grace of God in vain: (for he says, At a set time I heard you, and in the day of salvation I assisted you; behold, now is the acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation); giving no occasion of stumbling in anything, in order that the ministry may not be blamed; but in everything commending ourselves, as the ministers of God, in much patience, in tribulations, in straits, in difficulties, in stripes, in prisons, in tumults, in labors, in vigils, in fastings; by purity, by knowledge, by long suffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, by the word of truth, by the power of God; through the arms of righteousness right and left, through glory and dishonor, through evil report and good report; as deceivers, and true; as being unknown, and perfectly known; as dying, and behold we live; as chastened, and not killed; 10 as sorrowing, and always rejoicing; as poor, and making many rich; as having nothing, and possessing all things. 11 Our mouth is open unto you, O Corinthians, our heart is enlarged. 12 Be not straitened in reference to us, but be straitened in your own affections. 13 But as I speak to children, you indeed receive this reward. 14 Be not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what participation is there to righteousness and unrighteousness? or what fellowship has light unto darkness? 15 What concord of Christ unto Belial? or what part has a faithful man with an infidel? 16 And what harmony has the temple of God with idols? for we are the temple of the living God; as God said; I will live in them, and walk about among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Therefore come out from the midst of them, and be ye separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 and I will be to you for a Father, and you shall be unto me for sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.
