2 Corinthians 6

And as aiders we entreat of you, that the grace of God which ye have received, may not be ineffectual in you. For he hath said, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in the day of life I have aided thee. Behold, now is the acceptable time! and behold, now is the day of life! Give ye no occasion of offence to any one in any thing, that there may be no reproach on our ministry. But we, in all things, would show ourselves to be the ministers of God, in much endurance, in afflictions, in necessity, in distresses, in scourgings, in imprisonments, in tumults, in toil, in watching, in fasting; by purity, by knowledge, by long suffering, by benignity, by the Holy Spirit, by love unfeigned, by the speaking of truth, by the energy of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left; amid honor and dishonor, amid praise and contumely; as deceivers, and yet true; as not known, and yet we are well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as chastised, yet not killed; 10 as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as indigent, yet enriching many; as possessing nothing, yet having all things. 11 O ye Corinthians, our mouth is opened towards you, and our heart expanded. 12 Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own bowels. 13 I speak as to my children, Pay me the debt which ye owe, and expand your love towards me. 14 And be ye not yoke-fellows with them that believe not: for what fellowship hath righteousness with iniquity? or what communion hath light with darkness? 15 or what concord hath the Messiah with Satan? or what part hath a believer with an unbeliever? 16 or what agreement hath the temple of God with that of demons? For ye are the temple of the living God; as it is said, I will dwell among them, and walk among them, and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore, come ye out from among them, and be ye separate from them, saith the Lord; and come not near the unclean thing, and I will receive you; 18 and will be to you a Father, and ye shall be sons and daughters to me, saith the Lord Almighty.
