19 For God was in Christ, and reconciled the world to himself, not imputing their sins unto them, and hath [a]committed to us the word of reconciliation.

20 Now then are we ambassadors for Christ: as though God did beseech you through us, we pray you in Christ’s stead, that ye be reconciled to God.

21 For he hath made him to be [b]sin for us, which [c]knew no sin, that we should be made the [d]righteousness of God in him.
