2 Corinthians

6:1As co-workers we plead with you not to waste the favor you received from God.6:2He says, “At the right time I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” Look, now is the right time; now is the day of salvation!

6:3We put no obstacles in front of anyone, so that that our service would not be blamed.6:4Instead, in everything we commend ourselves as servants of God:

6:11Corinthians, we have made ourselves vulnerable to you; we have opened our hearts wide.6:12If things are strained between us, it is only on your part.6:13I should only have to say this to children, but now you too must open up!

6:14Do not allow yourselves to be harnessed together with unbelievers, for what do justice and lawlessness have in common? What partnership can there be between light and darkness?6:15Especially, to what agreement can the Anointed and Belial come? What?! What connection is there between a believer and an unbeliever?6:16And what could join the temple of God with that of idols? For we are the living temple of God, just as he said: “I will take up residence with them and walk among them; I will be their God and they will be my people.”6:17Therefore, “ ‘Come out from among them and be separate,’ says the Master, ‘and touch nothing unclean, and I will accept you.6:18I will be a father to you and you will be sons and daughters to me,’ says the Almighty Master.”
