References for 2 Corinthians 6:3

      4 But in everything, as God's ministers, we commend ourselves: by great endurance, by afflictions, by hardship, by pressures,
      5 by beatings, by imprisonments, by riots, by labors, by sleepless nights, by times of hunger,
      6 by purity, by knowledge, by patience, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love,
      7 by the message of truth, by the power of God; through weapons of righteousness on the right hand and the left,
      8 through glory and dishonor, through slander and good report; as deceivers yet true;
      9 as unknown yet recognized; as dying and look-we live; as being chastened yet not killed;
      10 as grieving yet always rejoicing; as poor yet enriching many; as having nothing yet possessing everything.
      11 We have spoken openlya to you, Corinthians; our heart has been opened wide.
