II Corinthians 6 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

6:1And working together with him we entreat also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain 6:2(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): 6:3giving no occasion of stumbling in anything, that our ministration be not blamed; 6:4but in everything commending ourselves, as ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, 6:5in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in watchings, in fastings; 6:6in pureness, in knowledge, in long suffering, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in love unfeigned, 6:7in the word of truth, in the power of God; by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,6:8by glory and dishonor, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true; 6:9as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed; 6:10as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things. 6:11Our mouth is open unto you, O Corinthians, our heart is enlarged. 6:12Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own affections. 6:13Now for a recompense in like kind (I speak as unto my children), be ye also enlarged. 6:14Be not unequally yoked with unbelievers: for what fellowship have righteousness and iniquity? or what communion hath light with darkness? 6:15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what portion hath a believer with an unbeliever? 6:16And 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. 6:17Wherefore

Come ye out from among them, and be ye separate,

saith the Lord,

And touch no unclean thing;

And I will receive you,

6:18And will be to you a Father,

And ye shall be to me sons and daughters,

saith the Lord Almighty.
