Ye are the temple of God - The apostle resumes here what he had asserted in 1 Corinthians 3:9 : Ye are God's building.

Therefore where God is, there is his temple.

2 Corinthians 6:16
What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people."
