Paul’s Hardships and God’s Grace

1We also as helpers exhorte you, that ye receaue not the grace of God in vayne.

2For he saith: I haue heard thee in a tyme accepted, and in the day of saluation haue I suckoured thee. Beholde, nowe is that accepted tyme, beholde nowe is that day of saluation:

3Let vs geue none occasion of euyll in any thyng, that the ministerie be not blamed: 4But in all thynges let vs behaue our selues as ye ministers of God, in much pacience, in afflictions, in necessities, in anguisshes, 5In stripes, in prisonmentes, in strifes, in labours, 6In watchynges, in fastinges, in purenesse, in knowledge, in long suffryng, in kyndnesse, in the holy ghost, in loue vnfaigned: 7In the worde of trueth, in the power of God, by the armour of righteousnes, of the ryght hande and on the lefte, 8By honour and dishonour, by euyll report and good report, as deceauers and yet true, 9As vnknowen, and yet knowen, as dying, and beholde we lyue, as chastened, and not kylled, 10As sorowyng, and yet alway merie: as poore, and yet make many riche: as hauyng nothyng, and yet possessyng all thynges.

11O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open vnto you, our heart is made large: 12Ye are in no strayte in vs, but are in a straite in your owne bowels. 13I promise you lyke rewarde as vnto children: Set your selues at large,

Do Not Be Unequally Yoked

14And beare not ye a straunge yoke with the vnbeleuers. For what felowship hath righteousnesse with vnrighteousnesse? Or what communion hath lyght with darkenesse? 15Or what concorde hath Christe with belyall? Eyther what part hath he that beleueth, with an infidell?

16Or howe agreeth the temple of God with images? For ye are the temple of the lyuing God, as saide God, I wyll dwell in them, & walke in them & wyll be their God, & they shalbe my people.

17Wherfore come out fro among them, and separate your selues from them (saith the Lorde) and touche none vncleane thyng, and I wyll receaue you,

18And wyll be a father vnto you, and ye shalbe my sonnes and daughters, saith the Lorde almightie.
