6:1 As God’s co-workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain.

6:2 For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.

6:3 We put no stumbling block in anyone’s path, so that our ministry will not be discredited.

6:4 Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses;

6:5 in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger;

6:6 in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love;

6:7 in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left;

6:8 through glory and dishonor, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors;
