1So we therefore as workers together beseech you, that ye receiue not the grace of God in vaine. 2For he sayth, I haue heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of saluation haue I succoured thee: beholde nowe the accepted time, beholde nowe the day of saluation. 3We giue no occasion of offence in any thing, that our ministerie shoulde not be reprehended. 4But in all things we approue our selues as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, 5In stripes, in prisons, in tumults, in labours, 6By watchings, by fastings, by puritie, by knowledge, by long suffering, by kindnesse, by the holy Ghost, by loue vnfained, 7By the worde of trueth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousnesse on the right hand, and on the left, 8By honour, and dishonour, by euill report, and good report, as deceiuers, and yet true: 9As vnknowen, and yet knowen: as dying, and beholde, we liue: as chastened, and yet not killed: 10As sorowing, and yet alway reioycing: as poore, and yet make many riche: as hauing nothing, and yet possessing all things. 11O Corinthians, our mouth is open vnto you: our heart is made large. 12Ye are not kept strait in vs, but ye are kept strait in your owne bowels. 13Nowe for the same recompence, I speake as to my children, Be you also inlarged. 14Be not vnequally yoked with the infidels: for what fellowship hath righteousnesse with vnrighteousnesse? and what communion hath light with darkenesse? 15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath the beleeuer with the infidell? 16And what agreement hath the Temple of God with idols? for ye are the Temple of the liuing God: as God hath said, I will dwell among them, and walke there: and I will be their God, and they shalbe my people. 17Wherefore come out from among them, and separate your selues, saith the Lord, and touch none vncleane thing, and I wil receiue you. 18And I will be a Father vnto you, and ye shalbe my sonnes and daughters, saith the Lord almightie.
