13 Now in the same way in (A)exchange—I am speaking as to (B)children—open wide your hearts to us, you as well.

14 (C)Do not be [a]mismatched with (D)unbelievers; for what do righteousness and lawlessness (E)share together, or what does light have in common with darkness? 15 Or what (F)harmony does Christ have with [b]Belial, or [c]what does a (G)believer share with an (H)unbeliever? 16 Or (I)what agreement does [d]the temple of God have with idols? For we are [e](J)the temple of (K)the living God; just as God said,

(L)I will (M)dwell among them and (N)walk among them;
And I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
17 (O)Therefore, (P)come out from their midst and be separate,” says the Lord.
And do not touch what is unclean;
And I will welcome you.
18 (Q)And I will be a father to you,
And you shall be (R)sons and daughters to Me,”
Says the Lord Almighty.
