2 Corinthians 6
That he hath approved himself a faithful minister of Christ, both by his exhortations,
2 Corinthians 6:1 We also as helpers exhorte you, that ye receaue not the grace of God in vayne. 2 Corinthians 6:2 For he saith: I haue heard thee in a tyme accepted, and in the day of saluation haue I suckoured thee. Beholde, nowe is that accepted tyme, beholde nowe is that day of saluation:
and by integrity of life,
2 Corinthians 6:3 Let vs geue none occasion of euyll in any thyng, that the ministerie be not blamed:
and by patient enduring all kinds of afflictions and disgraces for the Gospel.
2 Corinthians 6:4 But in all thynges let vs behaue our selues as ye ministers of God, in much pacience, in afflictions, in necessities, in anguisshes, 2 Corinthians 6:5 In stripes, in prisonmentes, in strifes, in labours, 2 Corinthians 6:6 In watchynges, in fastinges, in purenesse, in knowledge, in long suffryng, in kyndnesse, in the holy ghost, in loue vnfaigned: 2 Corinthians 6:7 In the worde of trueth, in the power of God, by the armour of righteousnes, of the ryght hande and on the lefte, 2 Corinthians 6:8 By honour and dishonour, by euyll report and good report, as deceauers and yet true, 2 Corinthians 6:9 As vnknowen, and yet knowen, as dying, and beholde we lyue, as chastened, and not kylled,
Of which he speaketh the more boldly amongst them, because his heart is open to them,
2 Corinthians 6:10 As sorowyng, and yet alway merie: as poore, and yet make many riche: as hauyng nothyng, and yet possessyng all thynges. 2 Corinthians 6:11 O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open vnto you, our heart is made large: 2 Corinthians 6:12 Ye are in no strayte in vs, but are in a straite in your owne bowels.
and he expecteth the like affection from them again:
2 Corinthians 6:13 I promise you lyke rewarde as vnto children: Set your selues at large,
exhorting to flee the society and pollutions of idolaters, as being themselves temples of the living God.
2 Corinthians 6:14 And beare not ye a straunge yoke with the vnbeleuers. For what felowship hath righteousnesse with vnrighteousnesse? Or what communion hath lyght with darkenesse? 2 Corinthians 6:15 Or what concorde hath Christe with belyall? Eyther what part hath he that beleueth, with an infidell? 2 Corinthians 6:16 Or howe agreeth the temple of God with images? For ye are the temple of the lyuing God, as saide God, I wyll dwell in them, & walke in [them] & wyll be their God, & they shalbe my people. 2 Corinthians 6:17 Wherfore come out fro among them, and separate your selues from them (saith the Lorde) and touche none vncleane thyng, and I wyll receaue you, 2 Corinthians 6:18 And wyll be a father vnto you, and ye shalbe my sonnes and daughters, saith the Lorde almightie.
