in beatings, imprisonments1 and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger;26
in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit3 and in sincere love;47
in truthful speech5 and in the power of God;6 with weapons of righteousness7 in the right hand and in the left;
through glory and dishonor,8 bad report9 and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors;109
known, yet regarded as unknown; dying,11 and yet we live on;12 beaten, and yet not killed;
sorrowful, yet always rejoicing;13 poor, yet making many rich;14 having nothing,15 and yet possessing everything.1611
We have spoken freely to you, Corinthians, and opened wide our hearts to you.1712
We are not withholding our affection from you, but you are withholding yours from us.
As a fair exchange--I speak as to my children18--open wide your hearts19 also.
Do not be yoked together20 with unbelievers.21 For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?2215
What harmony is there between Christ and Beliala ?23 What does a believer24 have in common with an unbeliever?25
