2 Corinthians 6
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And also working together we call on [you] that you do not receive the grace of God in vain—

2for He says, “In an acceptable time I heard you, and in a day of salvation I helped you, behold, now [is] a well-accepted time; behold, now, a day of salvation.”

3In nothing giving any cause of offense, that the ministry may not be blamed, 4but in everything recommending ourselves as God’s servants; in much patience, in tribulations, in necessities, in distresses, 5in stripes, in imprisonments, in insurrections, in labors, in watchings, in fastings, 6in pureness, in knowledge, in long-suffering, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in unhypocritical love, 7in the word of truth, in the power of God, through the armor of righteousness, on the right and on the left, 8through glory and dishonor, through evil report and good report, as leading astray, and true; 9as unknown, and recognized; as dying, and behold, we live; as disciplined, and not put to death; 10as sorrowful, and always rejoicing; as poor, and making many rich; as having nothing, and possessing all things.

11Our mouth has been open to you, O Corinthians, our heart has been enlarged! 12You are not restricted in us, and you are restricted in your [own] yearnings, 13and [as] a repayment of the same kind (as to children I say [it]), be enlarged—also you!

14Do not become yoked with others—unbelievers, for what partaking [is there] to righteousness and lawlessness? 15And what fellowship to light with darkness? And what concord to Christ with Belial? Or what part to a believer with an unbeliever?

16And what agreement to the temple of God with idols? For you are a temple of the living God, according as God said, “I will dwell in them, and will walk among [them], and I will be their God, and they will be My people,

17for this reason, come forth out of the midst of them, and be separated, says the LORD, and do not touch an unclean thing, and I will receive you,

18and I will be for a Father to you, and you will be sons and daughters to Me, says the LORD Almighty.”
