2 Corinthians 6

Their Ministry Commended

And a working together with Him, b we also urge you not to receive c the grace of God in vain 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”—

e giving no cause for offense in anything, so that the ministry will not be discredited, but in everything f commending ourselves as
Or ministers
h servants of God i in much endurance, in afflictions, in hardships, in distresses,
in j beatings, in imprisonments, in k tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in l hunger, in purity, in m knowledge, in n patience, in kindness, in the o Holy Spirit, in p genuine love, 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, by glory and t dishonor, by u evil report and good report; regarded as v deceivers and yet w true; as unknown
Lit and
yet well-known, as y dying
Lit and
yet behold aa we live; as
Or disciplined
Lit and
yet not put to death,
10 as ad sorrowful yet always ae rejoicing, as af poor yet making many rich, as ag having nothing
Lit and
yet possessing ai all things.

11  aj Our mouth
Lit is open to you
has spoken freely to you, O Corinthians, our al heart is opened wide.
12 You are not restrained
Or in us
by us, but an you are restrained in your own
Lit inward parts
13 Now in a like ap exchangeI speak as to aq childrenopen wide to us also.

14  ar Do not be
Lit unequally yoked
bound together with at unbelievers; for what au partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?
15 Or what av harmony has Christ with
Gr Beliar
Belial, or
Lit what part has a believer with an unbeliever
what has a ay believer in common with an az unbeliever?
16 Or ba what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are bb the temple of bc the living God; just as God said, bd “I will be  dwell in them and bf  walk among them;
And I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
17  bg Therefore bh  come out from their midst and be separate,” says the Lord.
And do not touch what is unclean;
And I will welcome you.
18  bi And I will be a father to you,
And you shall be bj sons and daughters to Me,”
Says the Lord Almighty.
