1 I beseech you, therefore, brethren, through the mercies of God, to present, your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, well pleasing to God, which is your rational service; 2 and he not conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is the good and well-pleasing and perfect will of God. 3 For I say, through the grace that was given to me, to every one among you, not to think of himself more highly than he night to think, but so to think as to think soberly, according as God divided to each one a measure of faith. 4 For even as we have many members in one body, and all the members have not the same office; 5 so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and severally members one of another. 6 And, having gifts differing according to the grace that was given to us; whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of our faith; 7 or ministry, let us labor in the ministry; or he that teaches, in teaching; 8 or he that exhorts, in his exhortation; he that imparts, let him do it with liberality; he that presides, with diligence; he that shows mercy, with cheerfulness. 9 Let love be without hypocrisy; abhorring that which is evil; cleaving to that which is good; 10 in brotherly love being tenderly affectionate one to another; in honor, preferring one another; 11 in diligence, not slothful; in spirit, fervent, serving the Lord; 12 rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; persevering in prayer; 13 communicating to the necessities of the saints; cultivating hospitality. 14 Bless those who persecute you; bless, and curse not. 15 Be ready to rejoice with those who rejoice; to weep with those who weep; 16 thinking the same thing one toward another; minding not lofty things, but being carried along with the lowly. Be ye not wise in your own conceits; 17 recompensing to no one evil for evil; providing things honorable in the sight of all men; 18 if it be possible, so far as it depends on you, being at peace with all men; 19 not avenging yourselves, beloved, but give place to the wrath of God: for it has been written, "Vengeance is Mine; I will recompense," saith the Lord. 20 But, if your enemy hungers, feed him; if he thirsts, give him drink; for, in doing this, you will heap coals of fire upon his head. 21 Be not overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

1 Let every soul be in subjection to the authorities that are over him; for there is no authority, except from God; and the authorities that are have been appointed by God. 2 So that he who resists the authority withstands the ordinance of God; and those having resisted shall receive to themselves condemnation; 3 for rulers are not a terror to the good work, but to the evil. And do you wish not to fear the authority? Do that which is good, and you shall have praise from the same; 4 for he is God's minister to you for good. But, if you do that which is evil, be afraid; for he bears not the sword in vain; for he is God's minister, an avenger for wrath to him that does evil. 5 Wherefore, there is necessity that ye submit yourselves, not only because of the wrath, but also because of conscience. 6 For, on this account, ye pay tribute also; for they are God's ministers, attending continually to this very thing. 7 Render to all their dues; tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor. 8 Owe no one anything, but to love one another; for he that loves another has fulfilled the law. 9 For this, "You shall not commit adultery," "You shall not kill," "You shall not steal," "You shall not covet;" and, if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this word, namely, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." 10 Love works no ill to one's neighbor: therefore, love is a fulfillment of the law. 11 And this, knowing the season, that it is time already for you to be aroused out of sleep; for now is our salvation nearer than when ye believed. 12 The night was far spent, and the day has drawn near; let us, therefore, put off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. 13 As in the day, let us walk becomingly; not in revellings and drunkenness, not in lewdness and wantonness, not in strife and jealousy; 14 but put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill its desires.
1 But him that is weak in the faith receive ye, yet not for decisions of scruples. 2 One believes that he may eat all things; but he that is weak eats herbs. 3 Let not him that eats despise him that eats not; and let not him that does not eat despise him that eats; for God received him. 4 Who are you that judge another's servant? To his own lord he stands or falls. But he shall be made to stand; for the Lord is able to make him stand. 5 One man, indeed, esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each one be fully convinced in his own mind. 6 He that regards the day regards it to the Lord; and he that eats eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he that eats not, to the Lord he eats not, and gives thanks to God. 7 For no one of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. 8 For, if we live, we live to the Lord; and, if we die, we die to the Lord: whether we live, therefore, or die, we are the Lord's. 9 For to this end Christ died, and lived, that He might be Lord of both dead and living. 10 But you—why do you judge your brother? or you also—why do you despise your brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God. 11 For it has been written, "As I live, saith the Lord, to Me every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess to God." 12 So, then, each one of us shall give account concerning himself to God. 13 Let us not, therefore, judge one another any more; but judge ye this rather, not to put a stumbling-block, or an occasion of falling, in a brother's way. 14 I know, and have been persuaded in the Lord Jesus, that nothing is unclean of itself: except that to him who accounts anything to be unclean, to him it is unclean. 15 For, if because of your food your brother is aggrieved, you are no longer walking in accordance with love. Destroy not with your food him for whom Christ died. 16 Let not, therefore, your good be evil spoken of; 17 for the Kingdom of God is not food and drink, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18 For he that in these things serves Christ, is well-pleasing to God, and approved by men. 19 So, then, let us follow after the things productive of peace, and the things that tend to mutual edification. 20 Do not, for the sake of food, overthrow the work of God. All things, indeed, are clean; but it is evil to him who eats with offense. 21 It is good, neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor to do anything whereby your brother stumbles. 22 The faith which you have, have to yourself before God. Happy is he that judges not himself in that which he approves. 23 And he who doubts is condemned, if he eat, because he eats not of faith; and all that is not of faith is sin.
1 Now we, the strong, ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 Let each one of us please his neighbor in that which is good for his edification; 3 for even Christ pleased not Himself; but, as it has been written, "The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on Me." 4 For whatsoever things were written in former times were written for our instruction, that we through patience and through consolation of the Scriptures may have hope. 5 Now the God of patience and of consolation grant you to be of the same mind one with another, according to Christ Jesus: 6 that with one accord ye may, with one mouth, glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 7 Wherefore, receive one another, as Christ also received you, to the glory of God. 8 For I say that Christ hath become a minister of the circumcision, in behalf of God's truth, that He might confirm the promises made to the fathers; 9 and that the gentiles might glorify God for His mercy; as it has been written, "For this cause, I will confess to Thee among the gentiles; and to Thy name will I sing praise." 10 And again He saith, "Rejoice, ye gentiles with His people." 11 And again, "Praise the Lord, all ye gentiles, and let all the people extol Him." 12 And again Isaiah says, "There shall be the Root of Jesse, and He Who riseth up to rule over the gentiles, on Him will the gentiles hope." 13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound In hope, in the power of the Holy Spirit. 14 And I myself also have become persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye yourselves also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another. 15 But I wrote to you the more boldly in part, as reminding you again, because of the grace which was given to me from God, 16 that I should be a minister of Jesus Christ to the gentiles, ministering the Gospel of God, that the offering up of the gentiles may become acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Spirit. 17 I have, therefore, my glorying in Christ Jesus as to the things pertaining to God. 18 For I will venture to speak only of the things which God wrought through me for the obedience of the gentiles, by word and deed, 19 in the power of signs and wonders, in the power of the Holy Spirit; so that from Jerusalem and around as far as Illyricum, I have fully dispensed the Gospel of Christ; 20 and, making it my aim so to proclaim the Gospel—not where Christ was already named—that I might not build upon another's foundation; 21 but, as it has been written, "Those shall see, to whom nothing was announced concerning Him; and those who have not heard shall understand." 22 Wherefore, also, I was being hindered many times from coming to you; 23 but now, having no longer any place in these regions; and, having a desire for many years to come to you, 24 whensoever I go to Spain (for I am hoping, in passing through, to see you, and to be sent on my way thither by you, if first I have been satisfied, in a measure, with your company); 25 but now I am going to Jerusalem, ministering to the saints. 26 For Macedonia and Achaia were well pleased to make a certain contribution to the poor of the saints who are in Jerusalem. 27 Indeed, they were well pleased, and their debtors they are; for, if the gentiles were partakers of their spiritual things, they ought also to minister to them in carnal things. 28 After having completed this, and having sealed to them this fruit, I will go on by you into Spain; 29 and I know that, when coming to you, I will come in the fulness of the blessing of Christ. 30 And I beseech you, brethren, by our Lord Jesus Christ, and by the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in your prayers to God for me; 31 that I may be delivered from the unbelieving in Judea, and that my ministry to Jerusalem may be acceptable to the saints; 32 that, coming to you in joy through the will of God, I may with you be refreshed. 33 And the God of peace be with you all. Amen.
1 I commend to you Phoebe our sister, who is a servant of the assembly which is in Cenchrea; 2 that ye receive her in the Lord, worthily of the saints, and assist her in whatever matter she may have need of you; for she herself became a helper of many, and of myself. 3 Salute Prisca and Aquila, my fellow-workers in Christ Jesus; 4 who, for my soul, laid down their own necks; to whom not only I give thanks, but also all the assemblies of the gentiles; 5 and salute the assembly that is in her house. Salute Epaenetus my beloved, who is the first-fruit of Asia unto Christ. 6 Salute Mary, who bestowed much labor on you. 7 Salute Andronicus and Junias, my kinsmen, and my fellow-prisoners, who, indeed, are of note among the apostles, who have been in Christ longer than I. 8 Salute Ampliatus, my beloved in the Lord. 9 Salute Urbanus, our fellow-worker in Christ, and Stachys my beloved. 10 Salute Apelles, the approved in Christ. Salute those who are of the household of Aristobulus. 11 Salute Herodion my kinsman. Salute those of the household of Narcissus who are in the Lord. 12 Salute Triphaena and Triphosa, who labor in the Lord. Salute Persis the beloved, who labored much in the Lord. 13 Salute Rufus, the elect in the Lord, and his mother and mine. 14 Salute Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas, and the brethren who are with them. 15 Salute Philologus and Julia, Nereus, and his sister, and Olympas, and all the saints who are with them. 16 Salute one another with a holy kiss. All the assemblies of Christ salute you. 17 Now I beseech you, brethren, to mark those who are causing the divisions and occasions of stumbling, contrary to the teaching which ye learned; and turn away from them. 18 For those who are such are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own belly; and, through their kind words and flattering speeches, they beguile the hearts of the simple. 19 For your obedience reached unto all. I rejoice, therefore, over you; but I wish you to be wise as to that which is good, but simple as to evil. 20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet speedily. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 21 Timothy my fellow-worker salutes you; and Lucius, and Jason, and Sosipater, my kinsmen, salute you. 22 I, Tertius, who write the epistle, salute you in the Lord. 23 Gaius my host, and of the whole assembly, salutes you. Erastus, the treasurer of the city, salutes you, and Quartus the brother. 24 Omitted Text 25 Now to Him Who is able to establish you, according to my Gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept in silence during eternal ages, 26 but now made manifest, and through the prophetic Scriptures, according to the commandment of the eternal God, made known to all nations for obedience to the faith: 27 to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, be the glory forever. Amen.
21 Jesus, therefore, said to them again, "Peace be to you! As the Father hath sent Me, I also send you."
1 But there arose false prophets also among the people, as among you also there will be false teachers, who, indeed, will stealthily bring in destructive heresies, denying even the Master Who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction: 2 and many will follow their lascivious doings; by reason of whom the way of the truth will be defamed; 3 and, in covetousness, will they, with feigned words, make merchandise of you; for whom the judgment from of old lingers not, and their destruction slumbers not. 4 For, if God spared not angels that sinned, but, hurling them down to Hell, delivered them up to pits of darkness, kept for judgment; 5 and spared not the old world; but preserved Noah, an eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing a flood upon a world of ungodly people; 6 and, turning to ashes the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, condemned them by an overthrow, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly; 7 and delivered righteous Lot, distressed by the conduct of those who were impious in lasciviousness, 8 (for this righteous man, dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, was torturing his righteous soul from day to day with their lawless deeds): 9 the Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptation, and to keep the unrighteous enduring punishment unto the day of judgment; 10 but especially those who walk after the flesh in a desire for pollution, and despise dominion; daring, self-willed, they tremble not, when railing at dignities; 11 whereas angels, though greater in might and power, bring not a railing judgment against them before the Lord. 12 But these, as irrational creatures, born naturally for capture and destruction, railing in matters of which they are ignorant, shall in their destruction be also destroyed, 13 suffering evil as wages of unrighteousness; accounting revelry in the daytime a pleasure; spots and blemishes; reveling in their deceivings, while feasting with you; 14 having eyes full of lustfulness, and that cannot cease from sin; enticing unstable souls; having a heart exercised in covetousness; children of a curse; 15 leaving the right way, they were led astray, having followed the way of Balaam, the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness, 16 but had a rebuke for his own transgression; a dumb beast-of-burden, speaking in man's voice, forbade the prophet's madness. 17 These are fountains without water, and mists driven by a storm, for whom the blackness of darkness has been reserved. 18 For, uttering great swelling words of vanity, they entice, in desires of the flesh, by their lasciviousness, those just escaping from those who live in error; 19 promising them liberty, while they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by what one is overcome by this he has become enslaved. 20 For if, after having escaped the defilements of the world in a full knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, but, having again become entangled with these, they are overcome, the last state has become worse with them than the first. 21 For it were better for them not to have fully known the way of righteousness, than, having known it, to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them. 22 It has happened to them according to the true proverb, "A dog having returned to his own vomit"; and "A sow that was washed, to her wallowing in mire."
13 Brethren, I do not account myself to have laid hold of it; but one thing I do, forgetting the things which are behind, and reaching forth to the things before. 14 I am pressing on toward the mark, for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. 15 but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts; ready always for an answer to every one who asks of you an account concerning the hope that is in you, yet with meekness and fear;
1 If I speak with tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal. 2 And, if I have the gift of prophecy, and know all the mysteries and all knowledge; and, if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing, 3 And, if I bestow in morsels all my goods; and, if I give my body to he burned, but have not love, I am profited nothing. 4 Love suffers long, is kind; love envies not; love vaunts not herself, is not puffed up, 5 behaves not unseemly, seeks not her own, is not provoked, takes no account of evil, 6 rejoices not at unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails; but whether there be prophecies, they will be done away; whether there be tongues, they will cease; whether there be knowledge, it will be done away. 9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part; 10 but, when the complete comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I was wont to talk as a child, to think as a child, to reason as a child; since I have become a man, I have done away with the things of the child; 12 for now we see through a mirror, obscurely; but then, face to face; now I know in part, but then I shall fully know, even as I also was fully known. 13 But now abides faith, hope, love; these three; and the greatest of these is love.
22 And become doers of the word, and not hearers only, deluding yourselves.
2 Do not forget to show love for strangers; for thereby some entertained angels unawares.
7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and sobriety.
6 Be anxious for nothing; but, in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God: 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, whatsoever things are righteous, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9 The things also, which ye learned, and received, and heard, and saw in me, these practice; and the God of peace will be with you.
