The Second Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians

Return to Index

Chapter 6

1

 And working together [with him] we entreat also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain 

2

 (for he saith, At an acceptable time I hearkened unto thee, And in a day of salvation did I succor thee: behold, now is the acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation): 

3

 giving no occasion of stumbling in anything, that our ministration be not blamed; 

4

 but in everything commending ourselves, as ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, 

5

 in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in watchings, in fastings; 

6

 in pureness, in knowledge, in long suffering, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in love unfeigned, 

7

 in the word of truth, in the power of God; by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, 

8

 by glory and dishonor, 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 always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and [yet] possessing all things. 

11

 Our mouth is open unto you, O Corinthians, our heart is enlarged. 

12

 Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own affections. 

13

 Now for a recompense in like kind (I speak as unto [my] children), be ye also enlarged. 

14

 Be not unequally yoked with unbelievers: for what fellowship have righteousness and iniquity? or what communion hath light with darkness? 

15

 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what portion hath a believer with an unbeliever? 

16

 And what agreement hath a temple of God with idols? for we are a temple of the living God; even as God 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 ye out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, And touch no unclean thing; And I will receive you, 

18

 And will be to you a Father, And ye shall be to me sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 

2nd Corinthians 7
