Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 But we helping [you in work and word] admonish [you], that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. 1 As God's fellow workers we urge you not to receive God's grace in vain.
2 For he saith, In time well pleasing I have heard thee [In time accepted, or well pleasing, I have heard thee], and in the day of health I have helped thee. Lo! now a time acceptable, lo! now a day of health. 2 For he says, "In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you." I tell you, now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation.
3 Give we to no man any offence, that our service be not reproved; [To no man giving any offence, or hurting, that our ministry, or service, be not reproved;] 3 We put no stumbling block in anyone's path, so that our ministry will not be discredited.
4 but in all things give we us selves [but in all things give we ourselves] as the ministers of God, in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in anguishes, 4 Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses;
5 in beatings [in scourgings], in prisons, in dissensions within, in travails, in wakings, in fastings, 5 in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger;
6 in chastity, in knowing [in science, or knowing], in long abiding, in sweetness, in the Holy Ghost, in charity not feigned, 6 in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love;
7 in the word of truth, in the virtue of God; by armours of rightwiseness on the right half and on the left half; 7 in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left;
8 by glory and unnobleness [by glory and unnobility]; by evil fame and good fame; as deceivers, and true men; 8 through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors;
9 as they that be unknown and known; as men dying, and lo! we live; as chastised, and not made dead; 9 known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed;
10 as sorrowful, and evermore joying; as having need, but making many men rich [as sorrowful, but evermore joying; as needy men, soothly making many rich]; as nothing having, and wielding all things. 10 sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything.
11 A! ye Corinthians [O! ye Corinthians], our mouth is open to you, our heart is alarged; 11 We have spoken freely to you, Corinthians, and opened wide our hearts to you.
12 ye be not anguished in us, but ye be anguished in your inwardnesses. [+ye be not made strait in us, but ye be made strait, or be ye anguished, in your entrails.] 12 We are not withholding our affection from you, but you are withholding yours from us.
13 And I say as to sons, ye that have the same reward, be ye alarged. [Forsooth, we having the same reward, I say as to sons, and be ye alarged.] 13 As a fair exchange--I speak as to my children--open wide your hearts also.
14 Do not ye bear the yoke with unfaithful men. For what parting of rightwiseness with wickedness [Soothly what parting, or communing, of rightwiseness with wickedness]? or what fellowship of light to darknesses? 14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
15 and what according of Christ to Belial? or what part of a faithful [man] with the unfaithful [or heathen]? 15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial ? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?
16 and what consent to the temple of God with maumets? And ye be the temple of the living God, as the Lord saith, For I shall dwell in them, and I shall walk among them; and I shall be [the] God of them, and they shall be a people to me. [but what consent to the temple of God with idols? Forsooth ye be the temple of quick God, as the Lord saith, For I shall dwell in them, and I shall walk in; and I shall be the God of them, and they shall be to me a people.] 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people."
17 For which thing go ye out of the middle of them, and be ye separated [and be ye parted], saith the Lord, and touch not unclean thing; and I shall receive you, 17 "Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you."
18 and I shall be to you into a Father, and ye shall be to me into sons and daughters, saith the Lord almighty. 18 "I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty."
