1 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
2 (For he saith , I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold , now is the accepted time; behold , now is the day of salvation.)
7 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
9 As unknown , and yet well known ; as dying , and, behold , we live ; as chastened , and not killed ;
13 Now for a recompence in the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be ye also enlarged .
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said * , I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate , saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18 And will be * a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons * and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
