1898 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)
2 Corinthians 6
1 That he hath approved himself a faithful minister of Christ, both by his exhortations, 3 and by integrity of life, 4 and by patient enduring all kinds of afflictions and disgraces for the Gospel. 10 Of which he speaketh the more boldly amongst them, because his heart is open to them, 13 and he expecteth the like affection from them again: 14 exhorting to flee the society and pollutions of idolaters, as being themselves temples of the living God.
6:1 ¶ And working together also we call upon [you] that ye receive not in vain the grace of God
6:2 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,'
6:3 in nothing giving any cause of offence, that the ministration may be not blamed,
6:4 but in everything recommending ourselves as God's ministrants; in much patience, in tribulations, in necessities, in distresses,
6:5 in stripes, in imprisonments, in insurrections, in labours, in watchings, in fastings,
6:6 in pureness, in knowledge, in long-suffering, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in love unfeigned,
6:7 in the word of truth, in the power of God, through the armour of the righteousness, on the right and on the left,
6:8 through glory and dishonour, through evil report and good report, as leading astray, and true;
6:9 as unknown, and recognized; as dying, and lo, we live; as chastened, and not put to death;
6:10 as sorrowful, and always rejoicing; as poor, and making many rich; as having nothing, and possessing all things.
6:11 Our mouth hath been open unto you, O Corinthians, our heart hath been enlarged!
6:12 ye are not straitened in us, and ye are straitened in your [own] bowels,
6:13 and [as] a recompense of the same kind, (as to children I say [it],) be ye enlargedalso ye!
6:14 Become not yoked with othersunbelievers, for what partaking [is there] to righteousness and lawlessness?
6:15 and what fellowship to light with darkness? and what concord to Christ with Belial? or what part to a believer with an unbeliever?
6:16 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,
6:17 wherefore, come ye forth out of the midst of them, and be separated, saith the Lord, and an unclean thing do not touch, and II will receive you,
6:18 and I will be to you for a Father, and yeye shall be to Me for sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.'
