2 Corinthians 6
That he hath approved himself a faithful minister of Christ, both by his exhortations,
2 Corinthians 6:1 We as helpers therfore exhorte you, that ye receaue not ye grace of God in vayne. 2 Corinthians 6:2 For he sayeth: I haue herde the in the tyme accepted, and in the daye of saluacion haue I succoured the. Beholde, now is the accepted tyme, now is the daye of saluacion.
and by integrity of life,
2 Corinthians 6:3 Let vs geue no man occasion of euell, that oure office be not euell spoken of:
and by patient enduring all kinds of afflictions and disgraces for the Gospel.
2 Corinthians 6:4 but in all thinges let vs behaue oure selues as the mynisters of God: in moch pacience, in troubles, in necessities, in anguysshes, 2 Corinthians 6:5 in strypes, in presonmentes, in vproures, in laboures, in watchinges, in fastynges, 2 Corinthians 6:6 in purenesse, in knowlege, in longe sufferynge, in kyndnesse, in the holy goost, in loue vnfayned, 2 Corinthians 6:7 in the worde of the trueth, in the power of God, by the armoure of righteousnes on the rightehande and on the lefte, 2 Corinthians 6:8 by honoure and dishonoure, by euell reporte and good reporte: as disceauers, & yet true: 2 Corinthians 6:9 as vnknowne, and yet knowne: as dyenge, 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 sorowynge, and yet allwaye mery: as poore, & yet make many riche: as hauynge nothinge, & yet possessynge all thinges. 2 Corinthians 6:11 O ye Corinthians, oure mouth is open vnto you, oure hert is made large. 2 Corinthians 6:12 Ye are in no straytnesse on oure behalfe: but where as ye are in straytnesse, that do ye of youre owne hertely meanynge.
and he expecteth the like affection from them again:
2 Corinthians 6:13 I speake to you, as to childre, that haue like rewarde with vs.
exhorting to flee the society and pollutions of idolaters, as being themselves temples of the living God.
2 Corinthians 6:14 Set youre selues therfore at large. Beare not a straunge yock with the vnbeleuers. For what fellishippe hath righteousnes with vnrighteousnes? What company hath lighte wt darknesse? 2 Corinthians 6:15 How agreeth Christ with Belial? Or what parte hath the beleuer with the infydele? 2 Corinthians 6:16 How acordeth ye teple of God with ymages? Ye are the temple of the lyuynge God, as sayeth God: I wyl dwell in them, and walke in them, and wyl be their God, & they shalbe my people. 2 Corinthians 6:17 Wherfore come out from amoge them, and separate youre selues (sayeth the LORDE) and touche no vncleane thinge, so wyl I receaue you, 2 Corinthians 6:18 & be youre father, & ye shalbe my sonnes and doughters, sayeth ye Allmightie LORDE.
