Modern Literal Version
[2 Corinthians 6] 6:1 And working together with him, we are also encouraging you* to not accept the grace of God in vain; 6:2 (for* he says, 'I heard you at an acceptable time and I helped you in a day of salvation;' {Isa 49:8} behold, now is the acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation), 6:3 giving no one a stumbling block in anything, in order that the service from us might not be blamed. 6:4 But we arecommending ourselves in everything, as servants of God: in much endurance, in afflictions, in calamities, in distresses, 6:5 in lashes, in prisons, in unrests, in labors, in sleeplessnesses, in fasts;6:6 in purity, in knowledge, in patience, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in non-pretended love*, 6:7in the word of truth, in the power of God; through the weapons of righteousness from the righthand and from the left hand, 6:8 through glory and dishonor, through defamation and good-repute; as misleaders and yet true; 6:9 as being unrecognized and yet being fully known; as dying and behold, we live; as being disciplined and yet not being slain; 6:10 as sorrowful, yet even habitually rejoicing; as poor, yet enriching many; as having nothing and yet having all things.

     6:11O Corinthians, our mouth has opened to you*, our heart has been widened. 6:12 You* are not distressed by us, but you* are distressed by your* own affections, 6:13 but the same as recompense, (I speak to you as to my children). You* also, be* widened in your*hearts.

     6:14 Do* not become unequally yoked with unbelieving ones; for* what partnership has righteousness and lawlessness? And what fellowship has light with darkness? 6:15 And what agreement has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believing one with an unbelieving one? 6:16And what alliance has a temple of God with idols? For* you* are a temple of the living God; just-as God said, 'I will be dwelling among them and will be walking among them, and I will be their God and they will be a people to me.' 6:17 Hence 'Come* forth from the midst of them and be*separate*,' says the Lord, 'And touch* no unclean thing, and I will accept you* 6:18 and will be a Father to you* and you* will be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty.' {Lev 26:11-12; 2Sam 7:7, 14; Isa 52:11; Jer 32:38, 51:45; Ezek 20:34, 41, 37:27; Amos 4:13}
