2 Corinthians 6 - Listen to Chapter Audio

Chapter 6

Their Ministry Commended

1 And working together with Him, we also urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain—
2 for He says,
"At the acceptable time I listened to you, And on the day of salvation I helped you." Behold, now is "the acceptable time," behold, now is "the day of salvation"—
3 giving no cause for offense in anything, so that the ministry will not be discredited,
4 but in everything commending ourselves as servants [fn] of God, in much endurance, in afflictions, in hardships, in distresses,
5 in beatings, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in hunger,
6 in purity, in knowledge, in patience, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in genuine love,
7 in the word of truth, in the power of God; by the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and the left,
8 by glory and dishonor, by evil report and good report; regarded as deceivers and yet true;
9 as unknown yet [fn] well-known, as dying yet [fn] behold, we live; as punished [fn] yet [fn] not put to death,
10 as sorrowful yet always rejoicing, as poor yet making many rich, as having nothing yet [fn] possessing all things.

11 Our mouth has [fn] spoken freely to you, O Corinthians, our heart is opened wide.
12 You are not restrained by [fn] us, but you are restrained in your own affections [fn].
13 Now in a like exchange—I speak as to children—open wide to us also.

14 Do not be bound [fn] together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?
15 Or what harmony has Christ with Belial [fn], or what [fn] has a believer in common with an unbeliever?
16 Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said,
"I will dwell in them and walk among them; And I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 "Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate," says the Lord. "And do not touch what is unclean; And I will welcome you.
18 "And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me," Says the Lord Almighty.
