1So we beseech you, as helpers, that the compassion of Elohim which you have received may not be in vain among you. 2For He said, “I have answered you in an acceptable time, and I have helped you on the day of Yeshua[h]; behold, now is the acceptable time; and behold, now is the day of Yeshua[h].” 3Give no occasion for offense to anyone in anything, so that there be no blemish in our ministry; 4but in all things, let us show ourselves to be the ministers of Elohim in much suffering, in tribulations, in necessities, in imprisonment, 5in scourgings, in bonds, in tumults, in toilings, in vigils, in fastings; 6by purity, by knowledge, by long-suffering, by kindness, by The Ru’akh HaKodesh, by sincere love, 7by the D’var Emet, by the power of Elohim, by the armor of tzedaka on the right hand and on the left, 8by honor and dishonor, by praise and reproach, as deceivers, and yet true; 9as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as chastened, and not dying; 10as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet enriching many; as having nothing, and yet possessing everything.
11O, Korintim, we have told you everything, and our heart is opened. 12You are not constrained by us, but are urged by your affections. 13I speak as to my children, render me my reward which is with you, increase your love toward me. 14Do not unite with unbelievers. For what fellowship has tzedaka with iniquity? Or what mingling has light with darkness? 15Or what accord has Mashi’akh with HaSatan? Or what portion has a believer with an unbeliever? 16Or what harmony has the Heikhal of Elohim with idols? For you are the Heikhal of the living Elohim; as it is said, “I will dwell in them and walk in them; and I will be their Elohim, and they shall be my people. 17Therefore come out from among them, and be separate, says יהוה , and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18and I will be a father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says יהוה Okhez Hakol.”
