5 Only, be very watchful to do the command and the law which Moses, servant of Yahweh, commanded you, to love Yahweh your Elohim, and to walk in all His ways, and to keep His commands, and to cleave to Him, and to serve Him, with all your heart, and with all your soul..
Bible verses about "serving others" | CLV
1 The vision which was perceived by Isaiah, son of Amoz, which he perceives concerning Judah and Jerusalem, in the days of Uzziah, and Jotham, and Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah." 2 Hark, you heavens! And give ear, O earth! For Yahweh speaks! Sons I bring up and exalt, yet they, they transgress against Me." 3 The bull knows his owner, and the ass the crib of his possessors, yet Israel does not know Me, and My people do not consider Me." 4 Woe, nation of sin! People heavy with depravity! Seed of evil doers! Sons of ruiners! They forsake Yahweh. They spurn the Holy One of Israel. They are estranged, going back." 5 For what are you being smitten still? You are continuing in stubbornness. All of the head is ill, and all of the heart languishes." 6 From the sole of the foot unto the head no flawlessness is in it. Injury and welt, and smiting raw; they are not pressed out, nor bound up, nor made tender with oil." 7 Your land is a desolation, and your cities are burned with fire. Your ground--in front of you aliens are devouring it, and desolation is on it as an overturning by alien peoples." 8 And left is the daughter of Zion as a booth in a vineyard, as a lodge in a cucumber patch, as a city besieged." 9 Unless Yahweh of hosts reserves for us a few survivors, as Sodom would we become, and to Gomorrah would we be likened." 10 Hear the word of Yahweh, captains of Sodom! Give ear to the law of Elohim, you people of Gomorrah!" 11 Why, to Me, your many sacrifices?saying is Yahweh. "I am surfeited with ascent approaches of rams, and the fat of fatlings, and in the blood of young bulls and he-lambs and he-goats I do not delight." 12 In case you are coming to appear before Me--Who seeks this from your hand, to tramp My courts? 13 Do not continue to bring a futile approach present. Incense--it is an abhorrence to Me! The new moon and the sabbath, the calling of a meeting--! I cannot bear a fast and a day of restraint!" 14 Your new moons and your appointments are hated by My soul. They become an encumbrance to Me. I am tired of bearing them. 15 And when you spread your palms to Me, I will obscure My eyes from you. Moreover, in case you are increasing your prayers, there is no hearing by Me. Your hands are full of blood. Amidst your fingers extrudes lawlessness." 16 Wash yourselves! Purge yourselves! Take away the evil of your actions from in front of My eyes! 17 Leave off the evil! Learn to be good! Inquire for judgment! Make happy the wronged! Judge the orphan! Contend for the widow! 18 Go, pray and it shall be corrected,saying is Yahweh. "If your sins are coming to be as double dipped scarlet, as snow shall they be white. If they are reddened as crimson, as wool shall they become." 19 If you are willing and hearken, the good of the land shall you eat." 20 Yet if you are refusing and rebel, by the sword shall you be devoured. For the mouth of Yahweh speaks." 21 How becomes a prostitute the town that was faithful Zion! Full of judgment, righteousness lodging in her, yet now murderers!" 22 Your silver becomes dross, your grog is adulterated with water." 23 Your chiefs are stubborn, and partners of thieves. Everyone loves a bribe, and pursues payments. The orphan they are not judging. And the contention of the widow is not coming to them." 24 Wherefore avers the Lord Yahweh of hosts, the Sturdy One of Israel, "Woe! I shall be comforted over My foes, and avenged on My enemies." 25 And I will restore My hand on you, and refine, so as to purify you from your dross. And the rebellious will I destroy, and take away all your tin alloy." 26 And I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the start. And afterward shall they call you, `Righteous city,' `Faithful Mother-Town.'" 27 Zion with judgment shall be ransomed, and her restored, with righteousness." 28 And the breaking of transgressors and sinners shall be together, and forsakers of Yahweh shall be finished." 29 For they are ashamed because of the oaks which you covet, and they are abashed because of the gardens which you choose." 30 For you shall become as a terebinth with leaf decay, and as a garden for which there is no water." 31 And your safeguard becomes tinder, and your contrivance a spark. And the lawless and sinners consume, the two of them together, and there is no quencher."
16 Lo! I am dispatching you as a sheep in the midst of wolves. Become, then, prudent as serpents and artless as doves."
1 Behold Me sending My messenger, and he surfaces the way before Me. And suddenly, the Lord Whom you are seeking is coming to his temple, and the Messenger of the covenant, in Whom you are delighting. Behold! He comes! says Yahweh of hosts." 2 Yet who will endure the day of His coming? And who will stand when He appears? For He is coming like a refiner's fire, and as launderers' soap." 3 And he shall sit as a refiner and cleanser of silver and gold. And he shall cleanse the sons of Levi, and cupel them as gold and as silver. And they shall come to be for Yahweh, bringing close the approach present in righteousness." 4 Then the approach present of Judah and Jerusalem is congenial to Yahweh, as in the days of the eon, and as in former years." 5 Then I will come near to you for judgment, and become a hastening witness against the enchanters and against the adulterers, and against those who are swearing in My name to falsehood, and against those extorting the hire of the hireling, and those tyrannizing over the widow and taunting the orphan, and turning aside the sojourner, and do not fear Me, says Yahweh of hosts." 6 For I, Yahweh your Elohim, do not alter; and you, sons of Jacob, are not finished." 7 From the days of your forefathers, you withdrew from My statutes and do not keep them. Return to Me, and I will return to you, says Yahweh of hosts. Yet you say, In what way shall we return? 8 Will a human defraud Elohim? For you are defrauding Me. Yet you say, In what way do we defraud You? In the tithe and the heave offering!" 9 With a curse you curse Me, and Me you are defrauding--the nation, all of it." 10 Then bring the entire tithe to the treasure house, and viands will come to be in My house. And test Me, I pray, in this, says Yahweh of hosts, if I will not open for you crevices in the heavens and I empty for you a blessing till there is insufficient storage." 11 And I will rebuke for you the devourer, and he shall not ruin the fruit of the ground for you, nor shall it bereave for you the vine in the field, says Yahweh of hosts." 12 And all nations shall pronounce you happy, for you shall become a land of delight, says Yahweh of hosts." 13 Your words are steadfast against Me, says Yahweh. Yet you say, What do we speak against You? 14 You say, It is futility to serve Elohim. And what gain is it that we keep His charge, and that we go somberly in view of Yahweh of hosts? 15 And now we are pronouncing the arrogant happy. Moreover, the doers of wickedness are built up. Moreover, they test Elohim, and are escaping." 16 Then those that fear Yahweh speak, each to his associate. And Yahweh is attending, and He is hearing. And a memorial scroll is written before Him, of the fearers of Yahweh, and of those reckoning His name." 17 And they become Mine, says Yahweh of hosts, for the day which I am making, a special possession, and I will spare them just as a man is sparing his son who is serving him." 18 And you shall return and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between a servant of Elohim and him who does not serve Him."
1 Now, at His descending from the mountain, vast throngs follow Him." 2 And lo! a leper, coming to Him, worshiped Him, saying, "Lord, if Thou shouldst be willing, Thou canst cleanse me!" 3 And, stretching out His hand, He touches him, saying, "I am willing! Be cleansed!And immediately, cleansed is his leprosy." 4 And Jesus is saying to him, "See that you may tell it to no one, but go away; show yourself to the priest and bring the approach present which Moses bids, for a testimony to them."
57 And at their going in the road, someone said to Him, "I will be following Thee wheresoever Thou mayest be coming away, Lord!" 58 And Jesus said to him, "The jackals have burrows and the flying creatures of heaven roosts, yet the Son of Mankind has no where that He may be reclining His head." 59 Now He said to a different one, "Follow Me!Yet he said, "Lord, permit me first to come away to entomb my father." 60 Yet He said to him, "Let the dead entomb their own dead. Yet you, coming away, publish the kingdom of God." 61 Now a different one also said, "I shall be following Thee, Lord! Yet first permit me to take leave of those in my home." 62 Yet Jesus said to him, "No one, putting forth his hand on a plow and looking behind, is fit in the kingdom of God."
1 Now after these things the Lord indicates seventy-two others also, and He dispatches them two by two before His face into every city and place where He was about to be entering." 2 Now He said to them, "The harvest, indeed, is vast, yet the workers are few. Beseech, then, the Lord of the harvest, so that He should be ejecting workers into His harvest." 3 Go! Lo! I am dispatching you as lambs in the midst of wolves." 4 Bear no purse not beggar's bag nor yet sandals, and you should be greeting no one by the way." 5 Now into whatever house you may be entering, first say, 'Peace to this household!'" 6 And if a son of peace should be there, your peace will be resting on it; otherwise, surely it will come back on you." 7 Now in the same house, remain, eating and drinking what they have, for worthy is the worker of his wages. Do not proceed from house to house." 8 And into whatever city you may be entering, and they may be receiving you, eat what is placed before you, 9 and cure the infirm in it, and say to them, 'Near to you is the kingdom of God.'" 10 Now into whatever city you may be entering, and they may not be receiving you, coming out into its squares, say, 11 Even the dust on our feet, which is clinging to us out of your city, are we wiping off before you. Moreover, know this, that near to you is the kingdom of God!" 12 Now I am saying to you that it will be more tolerable for Sodom in that day than for that city. 13 Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! for if the powerful deeds which are occurring in you occurred in Tyre and Sidon, long ago they would repent, sitting in sackcloth and ashes." 14 Moreover for Tyre and Sidon will it be more tolerable in the judging than for you. 15 And you, Capernaum! Not to heaven shall you be exalted! To the unseen shall you subside!" 16 He who is hearing you is hearing Me. And he who is repudiating you is repudiating Me. Yet he who is repudiating Me is repudiating Him Who commissions Me."
1 If, then, there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any communion of spirit, if any compassion and pity, 2 fill my joy full, that you may be mutually disposed, having mutual love, joined in soul, being disposed to one thing" 3 nothing according with faction, nor yet according with vainglory - but with humility, deeming one another superior to one's self, 4 not each noting that which is his own, but each that of others also." 5 For let this disposition be in you, which is in Christ Jesus also, 6 Who, being inherently in the form of God, deems it not pillaging to be equal with God, 7 nevertheless empties Himself, taking the form of a slave, coming to be in the likeness of humanity, 8 and, being found in fashion as a human, He humbles Himself, becoming obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." 9 Wherefore, also, God highly exalts Him, and graces Him with the name that is above every name, 10 that in the name of Jesus every knee should be bowing, celestial and terrestrial and subterranean, 11 and every tongue should be acclaiming that Jesus Christ is Lord, for the glory of God, the Father." 12 So that, my beloved, according as you always obey, not as in my presence only, but now much rather in my absence, with fear and trembling, be carrying your own salvation into effect, 13 for it is God Who is operating in you to will as well as to work for the sake of His delight.
1 James, a slave of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes in the dispersion. Rejoice!" 2 All joy deem it, my brethren, whenever you should be falling into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith is producing endurance. 4 Now let endurance have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and unimpaired, lacking in nothing." 5 Now if anyone of you is lacking wisdom, let him be requesting it from God, Who is giving to all generously and is not reproaching, and it shall be given to him." 6 Yet let him be requesting in faith, doubting nothing, for he who is doubting simulates a surge of the sea, driven by the wind and tossed." 7 For let not that man be surmising that he shall be obtaining anything from the Lord - 8 a man double-souled, turbulent in all his ways." 9 Now let the humble brother be glorying in his exaltation, 10 yet the rich in his humiliation, for, as the flower of grass, shall he pass by." 11 For the sun rises, together with the scorching heat, and withers the grass, and its flower falls off, and the comeliness of its aspect perished. Thus the rich also in his goings shall be caused to fade." 12 Happy is the man who is enduring trial, for, becoming qualified, he will be obtaining the wreath of life, which He promises to those loving Him." 13 Let no one, undergoing trial, be saying that "From God am I undergoing trial,for God is not tried by evils, yet He is trying no one." 14 Now each one is undergoing trial when he is drawn away and lured by his own desire. 15 Thereafter, the desire, conceiving, is bringing forth sin. Now sin, fully consummated, is teeming forth death." 16 Be not deceived, my beloved brethren!" 17 All good giving and every perfect gratuity is from above, descending from the Father of lights, in Whom there is no mutation or shadow from revolving motion." 18 By intention, He teems forth us by the word of truth, for us to be some firstfruit of His own creatures." 19 Now you are aware, my beloved brethren! Yet let every man be swift to hear, tardy to speak, tardy to anger, 20 for the anger of man is not working the righteousness of God. 21 Wherefore, putting off all filthiness and superabundance of evil, receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls." 22 Now become doers of the word, and not only listeners, beguiling yourselves." 23 For if anyone is a listener to the word and not a doer, this one simulates a man considering the face he inherited in a mirror;" 24 for he considers himself and has come away, and immediately forgot what kind he was." 25 Now he who peers into the perfect law, that of freedom, and abides, not becoming a forgetful listener, but a doer of the work, this one will be happy in his doing." 26 If anyone is seeming to be a ritualist, not bridling his tongue, but seducing his heart, the ritual of this one is vain, 27 for ritual clean and undefiled with God the Father is this: to be visiting the bereaved and widowed in their affliction, to be keeping oneself unspotted from the world."
10 Concerning which salvation the prophets seek out and search out, who prophesy concerning the grace which is for you, 11 searching into what or what manner of era the spirit of Christ in them made evident, when testifying beforehand to the sufferings pertaining to Christ and the glories after these." 12 To whom it was revealed that, not to themselves, but to you they dispensed them, of which you were now informed through those who are bringing the evangel to you by holy spirit dispatched from heaven, into which messengers are yearning to peer." 13 Wherefore, girding up the loins of your comprehension, being sober, expect perfectly the grace which is being brought to you at the unveiling of Jesus Christ." 14 As obedient children, not configuring to the former desires, in your ignorance, 15 but, according as He Who calls you is holy, you also become holy in all behavior, 16 because it is written that, Holy shall you be, for I am holy."
21 He who despises his associate is sinning, Yet happy is he who is gracious to the humble."
5 Now at His entering into Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, entreating Him" 6 and saying, "Lord, my boy is prostrate in the house, a paralytic, dreadfully tormented." 7 And he is saying to him, "I, coming, will cure him." 8 And answering, the centurion averred, "Lord, I am not competent that Thou mayest enter under my roof, but only say the word and my boy will be healed!" 9 For I also am a man set under authority, having soldiers under me, and I am saying to this one, 'Go,' and he is going, and to another, 'Come,' and he is coming, and to my slave, 'Do this,' and he is doing it." 10 Now, hearing it, Jesus marvels. And He said to those following, "Verily, I am saying to you, With no one in Israel so much faith did I find." 11 Now I am saying to you that many from the east and the west shall be arriving and reclining with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of the heavens, 12 yet the sons of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness. There shall be lamentation and gnashing of teeth." 13 And Jesus said to the centurion, "Go! As you believe let it come to be with you!And healed was the boy in that hour. And the centurion, returning into his house in the same hour, found the boy sound. 14 And Jesus, coming into Peter's home, perceived his mother-in-law prostrate and with a fever."
1 And after these things Jesus walked in Galilee, for He would not walk in Judea, for the Jews sought Him to kill Him." 2 Now near was the Jews' festival of Tabernacles. 3 His brothers, then, said to Him, "Proceed hence and go away into Judea, that your disciples also should be beholding your works which you are doing." 4 For no one is doing anything in hiding when he is seeking publicity. If you are doing these things, manifest yourself to the world." 5 For not even His brothers believed in Him. 6 Jesus, then, is saying to them, "The season for Me is not as yet present; yet the season for you is always present, ready." 7 The world can not be hating you, yet Me it is hating, for I am testifying concerning it that its acts are wicked." 8 You go up to this festival. I am not going up to this festival, for the season for Me has not as yet been fulfilled." 9 Now, saying these things to them, He remains in Galilee." 10 Yet as His brothers went up to the festival, then He also went up, not apparently, but as though in hiding." 11 The Jews, then, sought Him in the festival and said, "Where is he? 12 And there was much murmuring concerning Him among the throngs. These, indeed, said that "He is good,yet others said, "No. But he is deceiving the throng." 13 Howbeit no one spoke with boldness concerning Him because of fear of the Jews. 14 Now at length, midway of the festival, Jesus went up into the sanctuary and taught." 15 The Jews, then, marveled, saying, "How is this one acquainted with letters, not having learned? 16 Jesus, then, answered them and said, "My teaching is not Mine, but His Who sends Me." 17 If anyone should be wanting to be doing His will, he will know concerning the teaching, whether it is of God or I am speaking from Myself." 18 He who is speaking from himself is seeking his own glory, yet He Who is seeking the glory of Him Who sends Him, this One is true, and injustice is not in Him." 19 Has not Moses given you the law? And not one of you is doing the law! Why are you seeking to kill Me? 20 The throng answered, "A demon have you! Who is seeking to kill you? 21 Jesus answered and said to them, "One act I do, and all of you are marveling." 22 Therefore Moses has given you circumcision (not that it is of Moses, but that it is of the fathers) and on a sabbath you are circumcising a man." 23 If a man is getting circumcision on a sabbath lest the law of Moses may be annulled, am I raising your bile, seeing that I make a whole man sound on a sabbath? 24 Be not judging by the countenance, but be judging just judging."
1 I am entreating you, then, brethren, by the pities of God, to present your bodies a sacrifice, living, holy, well pleasing to God, your logical divine service,
2 fill my joy full, that you may be mutually disposed, having mutual love, joined in soul, being disposed to one thing"
11 And the same One gives these, indeed, as apostles, yet these as prophets, yet these as evangelists, yet these as pastors and teachers, 12 toward the adjusting of the saints for the work of dispensing, for the upbuilding of the body of Christ, 13 unto the end that we should all attain to the unity of the faith and of the realization of the son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature of the complement of the Christ, 14 that we may by no means still be minors, surging hither and thither and being carried about by every wind of teaching, by human caprice, by craftiness with a view to the systematizing of the deception."
8 neither did we eat bread gratuitously from anyone, but, with toil and labor, we are working night and day, so as not to be burdensome to any of you."
10 For God is not unjust, to be forgetting your work and the love which you display for His name when you serve the saints, and are serving." 11 Now we are yearning for each one of you to be displaying the same diligence toward the assurance of the expectation until the consummation, 12 that you may not be becoming dull. Now be imitators of those who through faith and patience are enjoying the allotment of the promises.
1 Christ, then, having suffered for our sakes in flesh, you also arm yourselves with the same thought, for he who is suffering in flesh has ceased his sins, 2 2 by no means still to spend the rest of his lifetime in the flesh in human desires, but in the will of God." 3 For sufficient is the time which has passed by to have effected the intention of the nations, having gone on in wantonness, lusts, debauches, revelries, drinking bouts, and illicit idolatries, 4 while they are thinking it strange of you not to race together into the same puddle of profligacy, calumniating you;" 5 who shall be rendering an account to Him Who is holding Himself in readiness to judge the living and the dead. 6 For for this an evangel is brought to the dead also, that they may be judged, indeed, according to men in flesh, yet should be living according to God, in spirit." 7 Now the consummation of all is near. Be sane, then, and sober for prayers, 8 before all, having earnest love among yourselves, for love is covering a multitude of sins." 9 Be hospitable to one another without murmuring. 10 Each, according as he obtained a gracious gift, be dispensing it among yourselves, as ideal administrators of the varied grace of God;" 11 if anyone is speaking, as the oracles of God; if anyone is dispensing, as out of the strength which God is furnishing; that in all God may be glorified, through Jesus Christ, to Whom is the glory and the might for the eons of the eons. Amen!" 12 Beloved, do not think strange the conflagration among you, which is becoming a trial to you, as of something strange befalling you, 13 but, according as you are participating in the sufferings of Christ, rejoice, that you may be rejoicing, exulting in the unveiling of His glory also." 14 If you are being reproached in the name of Christ, happy are you, for the spirit of glory and power, and that of God, has come to rest on you." 15 For let not any of you be suffering as a murderer, or a thief, or an evildoer, or as an interferer in other's affairs;" 16 yet if as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, yet let him be glorifying God in this name, 17 seeing that it is the era for the judgment to begin from the house of God. Now if first from us, what is the consummation of those who are stubborn as to God's evangel? 18 And, "If the just one is hardly being saved, where will the irreverent and the sinner appear? 19 So that, let those also who are suffering according to the will of God commit their souls to a faithful Creator in the doing of good."
42 And, calling them to Him, Jesus is saying to them, "You are aware that those of the nations who are presuming to be chiefs are lording it over them, and their great men are coercing them." 43 Yet not thus is it among you. But whosoever may be wanting to become great among you, will be your servant." 44 And whosoever may be wanting to be foremost among you, will be the slave of all." 45 For even the Son of Mankind came, not to be served, but to serve, and to give His soul a ransom for many."
13 For you were called for freedom, brethren, only use not the freedom for an incentive to the flesh, but through love be slaving for one another." 14 For the entire law is fulfilled in one word, in this: "You shall love your associate as yourself." 15 Now if you are biting and devouring one another, beware that you may not be consumed by one another."
16 Now of well doing and contributing be not forgetful, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased."
1 Now, looking up, He perceived the rich casting their approach presents into the treasury." 2 Yet He perceived a certain widow also, a drudge, casting there two mites." 3 And He said, "Truly, I am saying to you that this poor widow casts in more than all." 4 For all these cast out of their superfluity into the approach presents of God, yet this woman, out of her want, casts in all the livelihood which she had."
1 Now before the festival of the Passover, Jesus, being aware that His hour came that He may be proceeding out of this world to the Father, loving His own who are in the world, He loves them to the consummation." 2 And at the coming of dinner, the Adversary already having cast into the heart of Judas, son of Simon Iscariot, that he may be giving Him up, 3 Jesus, being aware that the Father has given all into His hands, and that He came out from God and is going away to God, 4 is rising from dinner and is laying down His garments, and, getting a cloth, He girds Himself." 5 Thereafter He is draining water into the basin, and begins washing the feet of the disciples and wiping them off with the cloth with which He was girded." 6 He is coming, then, to Simon Peter. And he is saying to Him, "Lord, Thou art washing my feet!" 7 Jesus answered and said to him, "What I am doing you are not aware at present, yet you will know after these things." 8 Peter is saying to Him, "Under no circumstances shouldst Thou be washing my feet for the eon!Jesus answered him, "If ever I should not be washing you, you are having no part with Me." 9 Simon Peter is saying to Him, "Lord, not my feet only, but the hands also and the head!" 10 Jesus is saying to him, "He who is bathed has no need, except to wash his feet, but is wholly clean. And you are clean, but not all." 11 For He was aware who is giving Him up. Therefore He said that "Not all of you are clean." 12 When, then, He washes their feet, and took His garments and leans back again, He said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you? 13 You are shouting to Me 'Teacher!' and 'Lord!' and you are saying ideally, for I am."
13 for those who serve ideally are procuring for themselves an ideal rank and much boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
25 Now He said to them, "The kings of the nations are lording it over them, and those exercising authority over them are called benefactors." 26 Yet you are not thus, but let the greatest among you become as the youngest, and he who is leading as he who is serving." 27 For who is greater, the one lying back at table or the one serving? Is it not the one lying back? Yet I am in your midst as the One Who is serving."
1 1Created by the Elohim were the heavens and the earth.
10 For His achievement are we, being created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God makes ready beforehand, that we should be walking in them."
1 If, then, there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any communion of spirit, if any compassion and pity, 2 fill my joy full, that you may be mutually disposed, having mutual love, joined in soul, being disposed to one thing" 3 nothing according with faction, nor yet according with vainglory - but with humility, deeming one another superior to one's self, 4 not each noting that which is his own, but each that of others also." 5 For let this disposition be in you, which is in Christ Jesus also, 6 Who, being inherently in the form of God, deems it not pillaging to be equal with God, 7 nevertheless empties Himself, taking the form of a slave, coming to be in the likeness of humanity, 8 and, being found in fashion as a human, He humbles Himself, becoming obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." 9 Wherefore, also, God highly exalts Him, and graces Him with the name that is above every name, 10 that in the name of Jesus every knee should be bowing, celestial and terrestrial and subterranean, 11 and every tongue should be acclaiming that Jesus Christ is Lord, for the glory of God, the Father." 12 So that, my beloved, according as you always obey, not as in my presence only, but now much rather in my absence, with fear and trembling, be carrying your own salvation into effect, 13 for it is God Who is operating in you to will as well as to work for the sake of His delight. 14 All be doing without murmurings and reasonings, 15 that you may become blameless and artless, children of God, flawless, in the midst of a generation crooked and perverse among whom you are appearing as luminaries in the world, 16 having on the word of life, for my glorying in the day of Christ, that I did not run for naught, neither that I toil for naught." 17 But even if I am a libation on the sacrifice and ministration of your faith, I am rejoicing myself and rejoicing together with you all." 18 Now, to be mutual, you also be rejoicing, and be rejoicing together with me." 19 Now I am expecting, in the Lord Jesus, to send Timothy to you quickly, that I also may be of good cheer when I know of your concerns." 20 For I have no one equally sensitive, who will be so genuinely solicitous of your concerns, 21 for all are seeking that which is their own, not that which is Christ Jesus'." 22 Now you know his testedness, that, as a child with a father, he slaves with me for the evangel." 23 This one, indeed, then, I am expecting to send - as ever I may be perceiving my course from the things about me - forthwith." 24 Yet I have confidence in the Lord that I myself shall also be coming quickly. 25 Now I deem it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, yet your apostle and minister for my need, 26 since, in fact, he was longing for you all and depressed, because you hear that he is infirm." 27 For he is infirm, also, very nigh death, but God is merciful to him, yet not to him only, but to me also, lest I should be having sorrow on sorrow." 28 The more diligently, then, I send him, that seeing him again, you may be rejoicing and I may be more sorrow-free." 29 Receive him, then in the Lord with all joy, and have such in honor, 30 seeing that because of the work of the Lord he draws near unto death, risking his soul that he should fill up your want of ministration toward me."
1 For the rest, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To be writing the same to you is not, indeed irksome for me, yet it is your security." 2 Beware of curs, beware of evil workers. Beware of the maimcision, 3 for we are the circumcision who are offering divine service in the spirit of God, and are glorying in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in flesh." 4 And am I having confidence in flesh, also? If any other one is presuming to have confidence in flesh, I rather:" 5 in circumcision the eighth day, of the race of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews, in relation to law, a Pharisee, 6 in relation to zeal, persecuting the ecclesia, in relation to the righteousness which is in law, becoming blameless." 7 But things which were gain to me, these I have deemed a forfeit because of Christ." 8 But, to be sure, I am also deeming all to be a forfeit because of the superiority of the knowledge of Christ Jesus, my Lord, because of Whom I forfeited all, and am deeming it to be refuse, that I should be gaining Christ, 9 and may be found in Him, not having my righteousness, which is of law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is from God for faith:" 10 to know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, conforming to His death, 11 if somehow I should be attaining to the resurrection that is out from among the dead. 12 Not that I already obtained, or am already perfected. Yet I am pursuing, if I may be grasping also that for which I was grasped also by Christ Jesus." 13 Brethren, not as yet am I reckoning myself to have grasped, yet one thing - forgetting, indeed, those things which are behind, yet stretching out to those in front - " 14 toward the goal am I pursuing for the prize of God's calling above in Christ Jesus. 15 Whoever, then, are mature, may be disposed to this, and if in anything you are differently disposed, this also shall God reveal to you." 16 Moreover, in what we outstrip others, there is to be a mutual disposition to be observing the elements by the same rule." 17 Become imitators together of me, brethren, and be noting those who are walking thus, according as you have us for a model, 18 for many are walking, of whom I often told you, yet now am lamenting also as I tell it, who are enemies of the cross of Christ, 19 whose consummation is destruction, whose god is their bowels, and whose glory is in their shame, who to the terrestial are disposed." 20 For our realm is inherent in the heavens, out of which we are awaiting a Saviour also, the Lord, Jesus Christ, 21 Who will transfigure the body of our humilation, to conform it to the body of His glory, in accord with the operation which enables Him even to subject all to Himself."
1 So that, my brethren, beloved and longed for, my joy and wreath, be standing firm thus in the Lord, my beloved." 2 I am entreating Euodia and I am entreating Syntyche, to be mutually disposed in the Lord." 3 Yes, I am asking you also, genuine yokefellow, be aiding them, these women who compete together with me in the evangel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers whose names are in the scroll of life." 4 Be rejoicing in the Lord always! Again, I will declare, be rejoicing!" 5 Let your lenience be known to all men: the Lord is near. 6 Do not worry about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God, 7 and the peace of God, that is superior to every frame of mind, shall be garrisoning your hearts and your apprehensions in Christ Jesus." 8 For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is grave, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is agreeable, whatever is renowned - if there is any virtue, and if any applause, be taking these into account." 9 What you learned also, and accepted and hear and perceived in me, these be putting into practice, and the God of peace will be with you." 10 Now I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that at length, for once your disposition toward me blossomed, to which you were disposed also, yet you lacked occasion." 11 Not that I am hinting at a want, for I learned to be content in that in which I am." 12 I am aware what it is to be humbled as well as aware what it is to be superabounding. In everything and among all am I initiated, to be satisified as well as to be hungering, to be superabounding as well as to be in want." 13 For all am I strong in Him Who is invigorating me - Christ! 14 Moreover, you do ideally in your joint contribution in my affliction." 15 Now you Philippians also are aware that, in the beginning of the evangel, when I came out from Macedonia, not one ecclesia participates with me in the matter of giving and getting, except you only, 16 for in Thessalonica also, you send, once and twice, to my need." 17 Not that I am seeking for a gift, but I am seeking for fruit that is increasing for your account." 18 Now I am collecting all, and am superabounding. I have been filled full, receiving from Epaphroditus the things from you, an odor fragrant, a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God." 19 Now my God shall be filling your every need in accord with His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20 Now to our God and Father be glory for the eons of the eons! Amen! 21 Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. Greeting you are the brethren with me. 22 Greeting you are all the saints, yet especially those of Caesar's house." 23 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit! Amen!
9 Let love be unfeigned. Abhorring that which is wicked, clinging to good, 10 Let us have fond affection for one another with brotherly fondness, in honor deeming one another first, 11 in diligence not slothful, fervent in spirit, slaving for the Lord, 12 rejoicing in expectation, enduring affliction, persevering in prayer, 13 contributing to the needs of the saints, pursuing hospitality."
9 Now we may not be despondent in ideal doing, for in due season we shall be reaping, if we do not faint."
7 and you, be you strong, and let not your hands be feeble, for there is a reward for your work..
27 But to you, who are hearing, am I saying: Love your enemies. Be doing ideally to those who are hating you." 28 Bless those who are cursing you. Pray concerning those who are traducing you. 29 To him who is beating you on the cheek, be tendering the other also. And you should not be preventing him who is taking away your cloak from taking your tunic also." 30 Now you, be giving to everyone who is requesting, and from him who is taking away what is yours be not demanding it." 31 And, according as you are wanting that men may be doing to you, you also be doing to them likewise." 32 And if you are loving those loving you, what thanks is it to you? For sinners also are loving those loving them." 33 And if you should be doing good to those doing good to you, what thanks is it to you? For sinners also are doing the same." 34 And if you should ever be lending to those from whom you are expecting to get back, what thanks is it to you? For sinners also are lending to sinners, that they may get back the equivalent." 35 Moreover, be loving your enemies, and be doing good, and be lending, expecting nothing from them, and your wages will be vast in the heavens, and you will be sons of the Most High, for He is kind to the ungrateful and wicked." 36 Become, then, pitiful, according as your Father also is pitiful." 37 And be not judging, and under no circumstances may you be judged; and be not convicting, and under no circumstances may you be convicted; be releasing, and you shall be released;" 38 be giving, and it shall be given to you: a measure ideal, squeezed down and shaken together and running over, shall they be giving into your bosom. For the same measure with which you are measuring will be measured to you again." 39 Now He told them a parable also: "The blind can not guide the blind. Will not both be falling into a pit? 40 A disciple is not above his teacher, yet everyone who is adjusted will be as his teacher." 41 Now why are you observing the mote in your brother's eye, yet the beam in your own eye you are not considering? 42 Or how can you be saying to your brother, 'Brother, let me extract the mote in your eye,' observing not, yourself, the beam in your eye? Hypocrite! Extract first the beam out of your eye, and then you will be keen-sighted to be extracting the mote in your brother's eye." 43 For an ideal tree is not producing rotten fruit; again, neither is a rotten tree producing ideal fruit." 44 For each tree is known by its own fruit. For not from thorns are they culling figs, neither from a thorn bush are they picking grapes." 45 The good man out of the good treasure of his heart is bringing forth that which is good, and the wicked man out of the wicked treasure of his heart is bringing forth that which is wicked, for out of the superabundance of the heart his mouth is speaking."
19 For, being free of all, I enslave myself to all, that I should be gaining the more."
14 What is the benefit, my brethren, if anyone should be saying he has faith, yet may have no works? That faith can not save him." 15 If a brother or sister should be belonging to the naked, and lacking nourishment for the day, 16 yet someone from among you may be saying to them, "Go away in peace, be warmed and satisfied,yet you may not be giving them the requisites for the body, what is the benefit? 17 Thus, also, is faith, if it should not have works: it is dead by itself."
16 1Thus let shine your light in front of men, so that they may perceive your ideal acts and should glorify your Father Who is in the heavens.
24 only, fear you Yahweh, and you have served Him in truth with all your heart, for see that which He has made great with you;"
18 Little children, we should not be loving in word, neither in tongue, but in act and truth."
35 For I hunger and you give Me to eat' I thirst and you give Me drink; a stranger was I and you took Me in; 36 naked and you clothed Me; infirm am I and you visit Me; in jail was I and you come to Me.' 37 Then the just will be answering Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we perceive Thee hungering and nourish Thee, or thirsting and we give Thee drink? 38 Now when did we perceive Thee a stranger and took Thee in, or naked and we clothed Thee? 39 Now when did we perceive Thee infirm, or in jail, and we came to Thee?'" 40 And, answering, the King shall be declaring to them, 'Verily, I am saying to you, In as much as you do it to one of these, the least of My brethren, you do it to Me.'"
45 For even the Son of Mankind came, not to be served, but to serve, and to give His soul a ransom for many."
17 He who is gracious to a poor man obligates Yahweh, And He shall pay his requital to him."
38 be giving, and it shall be given to you: a measure ideal, squeezed down and shaken together and running over, shall they be giving into your bosom. For the same measure with which you are measuring will be measured to you again."
11 Now the greatest one among you shall be your servant."
25 The soul who gives a blessing is conferred with richness, And he who waters, he himself shall be watered also."
1 If, then, there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any communion of spirit, if any compassion and pity, 2 fill my joy full, that you may be mutually disposed, having mutual love, joined in soul, being disposed to one thing" 3 nothing according with faction, nor yet according with vainglory - but with humility, deeming one another superior to one's self, 4 not each noting that which is his own, but each that of others also." 5 For let this disposition be in you, which is in Christ Jesus also, 6 Who, being inherently in the form of God, deems it not pillaging to be equal with God, 7 nevertheless empties Himself, taking the form of a slave, coming to be in the likeness of humanity, 8 and, being found in fashion as a human, He humbles Himself, becoming obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." 9 Wherefore, also, God highly exalts Him, and graces Him with the name that is above every name, 10 that in the name of Jesus every knee should be bowing, celestial and terrestrial and subterranean, 11 and every tongue should be acclaiming that Jesus Christ is Lord, for the glory of God, the Father."
28 even as the Son of Mankind came, not to be served, but to serve, and to give His soul a ransom for many."
35 And, being seated, He summons the twelve and is saying to them, "If anyone is wanting to be first, he will be last of all, and servant of all."
12 When, then, He washes their feet, and took His garments and leans back again, He said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you? 13 You are shouting to Me 'Teacher!' and 'Lord!' and you are saying ideally, for I am." 14 If, then, I, the Lord and the Teacher, wash your feet, you also ought to be washing one another's feet."
35 All I intimate to you, that, thus toiling, you must be supporting the infirm. Besides, remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, 'Happy is it to give rather than to get.'"
10 Each, according as he obtained a gracious gift, be dispensing it among yourselves, as ideal administrators of the varied grace of God;" 11 if anyone is speaking, as the oracles of God; if anyone is dispensing, as out of the strength which God is furnishing; that in all God may be glorified, through Jesus Christ, to Whom is the glory and the might for the eons of the eons. Amen!"
10 Each, according as he obtained a gracious gift, be dispensing it among yourselves, as ideal administrators of the varied grace of God;"
