1 Working together but also we exhort, not in vain the favor of the God to receive you;
2 (he says for: In a season acceptable I listened to thee and in a day of salvation I helped thee. Lo, now a season well accepted, lo, now a day of salvation.)
3 No one in any thing giving offence, so that not may be blamed the service;
4 but in every thing establishing ourselves as of God servants, in patience much, in affliction, in necessities, in distresses,
5 in stripes, in prisons, in tumults, in labors, in watchings, in fastings;
6 in purity, in knowledge, in longsuffering, in kindness, in spirit holy, in love unfeigned,
7 in a word of truth, in power of God; through the arms of the righteousness of the rights and of lefts,
8 through glory and disgrace, through bad fame and good fame; and deceivers and true;
9 as being ignorant, and being duly appreciated; as dying, and lo we live; as being corrected, and not put to death;
10 as being grieved, always but rejoicing; as poor, many but making rich; as nothing having; and all things possessing.
11 The mouth of us has been opened to you, O Corinthians, the heart of us has been enlarged.
12 Not you are straitened in us; you are straitened but in the bowels of you.
13 The but same recompense, (as to children I speak,) be enlarged also you.
14 Not be you unequally yoking with unbelievers; what for participation righteousness and lawlessness? what and fellowship light with darkness?
15 What and agreement of an Anointed with Belial? or what portion to a believer with an unbeliever?
16 what and connection a temple of God with idols? You for a temple of God are living; as said the God: That I will in dwell among them, and will walk about in; and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people.
17 Wherefore come you out from midst of them and be you separated, says Lord, and of an unclean thing not touch you; and I will receive you,
18 and I will be to you for a Father, and you shall be to me for sons and daughters, says Lord Almighty.
