The Temple of the Living God

2 Corinthians 6

14 q Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For r what 1 fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what 2 communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?

16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For s you 3 are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
t "I will dwell in them
And walk among them.
I will be their God,
And they shall be My people." 4
17 Therefore
u "Come out from among them
And be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean,
And I will receive you." 5
18 "I v will be a Father to you,
And you shall be My w sons and daughters,
Says the LORD Almighty." 6

2 Corinthians 7

1 Therefore, a having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
