1As we work together with Christ, we urge you also not to accept the gracof God in vain. 2For he say
At an acceptable time I have listened to yo
and on a day of salvation I have helped you
See, now is the acceptable time; see, now is the day of salvation! 3We arputting no obstacle in anyones way, so that no fault may be found with ouministry, 4but as servants of God we have commended ourselves in every waythrough great endurance, in afflictions, hardships, calamities, 5beatingsimprisonments, riots, labours, sleepless nights, hunger; 6by purity, knowledgepatience, kindness, holiness of spirit, genuine love, 7truthful speech, and thpower of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for thleft; 8in honour and dishonour, in ill repute and good repute. We are treateas impostors, and yet are true; 9as unknown, and yet are well known; as dyingand see we are alive; as punished, and yet not killed; 10as sorrowful, yealways rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yepossessing everything.
11We have spoken frankly to you Corinthians; our heart is wide open to you12There is no restriction in our affections, but only in yours. 13In return speak as to children open wide your hearts also.
