2 Corinthians 6

2 Corinthians 6:1  
Working together, we entreat also that you do not receive the grace of God in vain.

2 Corinthians 6:2  
For he says, “At an acceptable time I listened to you. In a day of salvation I helped you.” Behold, now is the acceptable time. Behold, now is the day of salvation.

2 Corinthians 6:3  
We give no occasion of stumbling in anything, that our service may not be blamed,

2 Corinthians 6:4  
but in everything commending ourselves as servants of God: in great endurance, in afflictions, in hardships, in distresses,

2 Corinthians 6:5  
in beatings, in imprisonments, in riots, in labors, in watchings, in fastings,

2 Corinthians 6:6  
in pureness, in knowledge, in perseverance, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in sincere love,

2 Corinthians 6:7  
in the word of truth, in the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

2 Corinthians 6:8  
by glory and dishonor, by evil report and good report, as deceivers and yet true,

2 Corinthians 6:9  
as unknown and yet well known, as dying and behold—we live, as punished and not killed,

2 Corinthians 6:10  
as sorrowful yet always rejoicing, as poor yet making many rich, as having nothing and yet possessing all things.

2 Corinthians 6:11  
Our mouth is open to you, Corinthians. Our heart is enlarged.

2 Corinthians 6:12  
You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted by your own affections.

2 Corinthians 6:13  
Now in return—I speak as to my children—you also open your hearts.

2 Corinthians 6:14  
Don’t be unequally yoked with unbelievers, for what fellowship do righteousness and iniquity have? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness?

2 Corinthians 6:15  
What agreement does Christ have with Belial? Or what portion does a believer have with an unbeliever?

2 Corinthians 6:16  
What agreement does a temple of God have with idols? For you are a temple of the living God. Even as God said, “I will dwell in them and walk in them. I will be their God and they will be my people.”

2 Corinthians 6:17  
Therefore “ ‘Come out from among them, and be separate,’ says the Lord. ‘Touch no unclean thing. I will receive you.

2 Corinthians 6:18  
I will be to you a Father. You will be to me sons and daughters,’ says the Lord Almighty.”
