2 Cor 6:17

6:17 The quotation is mostly from Is. 52:11 and Ezek. 20:34, though the word order is changed. These commands to be separate all have to do with unbelievers (cf. v. 14; note that Is. 52:11 commands Israel to go out of unbelieving Babylon). The verses do not encourage separation from believers who hold different views on certain matters.
