King James Version2 Corinthians6

2 Corinthians

1 We then, as work­ers to­geth­er with him, be­seech you also that ye re­ceive not the grace of God in vain. 2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time ac­cept­ed, and in the day of sal­va­tion have I suc­coured thee: be­hold, now is the ac­cept­ed time; be­hold, now is the day of sal­va­tion.) 3 Giv­ing no of­fence in any thing, that the min­istry be not blamed: 4 But in all things ap­prov­ing our­selves as the min­is­ters of God, in much pa­tience, in af­flic­tions, in ne­ces­si­ties, in dis­tress­es, 5 In stripes, in im­pris­on­ments, in tu­mults, in labours, in watch­ings, in fast­ings; 6 By pure­ness, by knowl­edge, by long­suf­fer­ing, by kind­ness, by the Holy Ghost, by love un­feigned, 7 By the word of truth, by the pow­er of God, by the ar­mour of righ­teous­ness on the right hand and on the left, 8 By hon­our and dis­hon­our, by evil re­port and good re­port: as de­ceivers, and yet true; 9 As un­known, and yet well known; as dy­ing, and, be­hold, we live; as chas­tened, and not killed; 10 As sor­row­ful, yet al­way re­joic­ing; as poor, yet mak­ing many rich; as hav­ing noth­ing, and yet pos­sess­ing all things. 11 O ye Corinthi­ans, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is en­larged. 12 Ye are not strait­ened in us, but ye are strait­ened in your own bow­els. 13 Now for a rec­om­pence in the same, (I speak as unto my chil­dren, ) be ye also en­larged. 14 Be ye not un­equal­ly yoked to­geth­er with un­be­liev­ers: for what fel­low­ship hath righ­teous­ness with un­righ­teous­ness? and what com­mu­nion hath light with dark­ness? 15 And what con­cord hath Christ with Be­lial? or what part hath he that be­lieveth with an in­fi­del? 16 And what agree­ment hath the tem­ple of God with idols? for ye are the tem­ple of the liv­ing God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my peo­ple. 17 Where­fore come out from among them, and be ye sep­a­rate, saith the Lord, and touch not the un­clean thing; and I will re­ceive you, 18 And will be a Fa­ther unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daugh­ters, saith the Lord Almighty.
