1 We then, as aworkers together with him, beseech you also bthat ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
2 (For he saith, cI 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 dGiving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:
4 But in all things approving ourselves eas 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 gthe power of God, by fthe 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 kyet well known; jhas dying, and, behold, we live; ias chastened, and not killed;
10 mAs sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; las 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 nye 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 oBe ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for pwhat 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 qye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, rI will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 sWherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 tAnd will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
