2 Corinthians 6
1We then, [as] workers together [with him], beseech (to call upon; appeal; beg) [you] also that you2f receive not the grace of God-The Father in vain.
2(For he says, I have heard youi in a time accepted, and in a day of salvation have I succoured youi: behold, now [is] the accepted time; behold, now [is] the day of salvation.)
3Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:
4But in all [things] approving ourselves as the ministers of God-The Father, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,
5In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;
6By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh], by love unfeigned,
7By the word of truth, by the power of God-The Father, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
8By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and [yet] true;
9As unknown, and [yet] well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;
10As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and [yet] possessing all things.
11O [you2f] Corinthians [satiated], our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged.
12You2f are not straitened (impeded or restricted; narrowed, distressed) in us, but you2f are straitened (impeded or restricted; narrowed, distressed) in your own bowels (inward parts; affections).
13Now for a recompence (punishment for evil, reward) in the same, (I speak as unto [my] children,) be you2f also enlarged.
14Be you2f not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion has light with darkness?
15And what concord (agreement; unison) has Moshiach [Messiah] with Belial [Worthless, Good for Nothing]? or what part has he that believes with an unbeliever?
16And what agreement has the temple of God-The Father with idols? for you2f are the temple of the living God-The Father; as God-The Father has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God-The Father, and they shall be my people.
17For what reason come out from among them, and be you2f separate, says the Lord - Kurios, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you,
18And will be a Father unto you, and you2f shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord - Kurios Almighty.
