16 Or (A)what agreement does [a]the temple of God have with idols? For we are [b](B)the temple of (C)the living God; just as God said,

(D)I will (E)dwell among them and (F)walk among them;
And I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
17 (G)Therefore, (H)come out from their midst and be separate,” says the Lord.
And do not touch what is unclean;
And I will welcome you.
18 (I)And I will be a father to you,
And you shall be (J)sons and daughters to Me,”
Says the Lord Almighty.

Paul Reveals His Heart

Therefore, having these promises, (K)beloved, (L)let’s cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
