(2Cor 6:14 [KJV])
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

(2Cor 6:15 [KJV])
And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

(2Cor 6:16 [KJV])
And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

(2Cor 6:17 [KJV])

(2Cor 6:18 [KJV])
And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
