2 Corinthians 6 (WEBP)

[1] Working together, we entreat also that you do not receive the grace of God in vain.
[2] For he says, “At an acceptable time I listened to you. In a day of salvation I helped you.” Behold, now is the acceptable time. Behold, now is the day of salvation.
[3] We give no occasion of stumbling in anything, that our service may not be blamed,
[4] but in everything commending ourselves as servants of God: in great endurance, in afflictions, in hardships, in distresses,
[5] in beatings, in imprisonments, in riots, in labors, in watchings, in fastings,
[6] in pureness, in knowledge, in perseverance, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in sincere love,
[7] in the word of truth, in the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
[8] by glory and dishonor, by evil report and good report, as deceivers and yet true,
[9] as unknown and yet well known, as dying and behold—we live, as punished and not killed,
[10] as sorrowful yet always rejoicing, as poor yet making many rich, as having nothing and yet possessing all things.
[11] Our mouth is open to you, Corinthians. Our heart is enlarged.
[12] You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted by your own affections.
[13] Now in return—I speak as to my children—you also open your hearts.
[14] Don’t be unequally yoked with unbelievers, for what fellowship do righteousness and iniquity have? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness?
[15] What agreement does Christ have with Belial? Or what portion does a believer have with an unbeliever?
[16] What agreement does a temple of God have with idols? For you are a temple of the living God. Even as God said, “I will dwell in them and walk in them. I will be their God and they will be my people.”
[17] Therefore “ ‘Come out from among them, and be separate,’ says the Lord. ‘Touch no unclean thing. I will receive you.
[18] I will be to you a Father. You will be to me sons and daughters,’ says the Lord Almighty.”

2 Corinthians 6 (KJVS)

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

Young’s Literal Translation

2 Corinthians 6 (YLT)

[1] And working together also we call upon you that ye receive not in vain the grace of God-
[2] for He saith, ‘In an acceptable time I did hear thee, and in a day of salvation I did help thee, lo, now is a well-accepted time; lo, now, a day of salvation,’-
[3] in nothing giving any cause of offence, that the ministration may be not blamed,
[4] but in everything recommending ourselves as God’s ministrants; in much patience, in tribulations, in necessities, in distresses,
[5] in stripes, in imprisonments, in insurrections, in labours, in watchings, in fastings,
[6] in pureness, in knowledge, in long-suffering, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in love unfeigned,
[7] in the word of truth, in the power of God, through the armour of the righteousness, on the right and on the left,
[8] through glory and dishonour, through evil report and good report, as leading astray, and true;
[9] as unknown, and recognized; as dying, and lo, we live; as chastened, and not put to death;
[10] as sorrowful, and always rejoicing; as poor, and making many rich; as having nothing, and possessing all things.
[11] Our mouth hath been open unto you, O Corinthians, our heart hath been enlarged!
[12] ye are not straitened in us, and ye are straitened in your own bowels,
[13] and as a recompense of the same kind, (as to children I say it,) be ye enlarged-also ye!
[14] Become not yoked with others-unbelievers, for what partaking is there to righteousness and lawlessness?
[15] and what fellowship to light with darkness? and what concord to Christ with Belial? or what part to a believer with an unbeliever?
[16] and what agreement to the sanctuary of God with idols? for ye are a sanctuary of the living God, according as God said-‘I will dwell in them, and will walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people,
[17] wherefore, come ye forth out of the midst of them, and be separated, saith the Lord, and an unclean thing do not touch, and I-I will receive you,
[18] and I will be to you for a Father, and ye-ye shall be to Me for sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.’
