2 Corinthians 6
Their Ministry Commended1 And a working together with Him, b we also urge you not to receive c the grace of God in vain— 2 for He says, d “At the acceptable time I listened to you,
And on the day of salvation I helped you.”
Behold, now is “the acceptable time,” behold, now is “the day of salvation”—
3 e giving no cause for offense in anything, so that the ministry will not be discredited, 4 but in everything f commending ourselves as ▼
▼ Or ministers, h servants of God i in much endurance, in afflictions, in hardships, in distresses, 5 in j beatings, in imprisonments, in k tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in l hunger, 6 in purity, in m knowledge, in n patience, in kindness, in the o Holy Spirit, in p genuine love, 7 in q the word of truth, in r the power of God; by s the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and the left, 8 by glory and t dishonor, by u evil report and good report; regarded as v deceivers and yet w true; 9 as unknown ▼ yet well-known, as y dying ▼ yet behold aa we live; as ▼
▼ Or disciplinedpunished ▼ yet not put to death, 10 as ad sorrowful yet always ae rejoicing, as af poor yet making many rich, as ag having nothing ▼ yet possessing ai all things. 11 aj Our mouth ▼
