Mark 1:8

8 I have baptized you with waters; but he shall baptize you with the Spirit of Holiness.

1 Corinthians 12:30

30 Have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues, or do all interpret?

1 Corinthians 12:1-14:40

1 BUT concerning spirituals, my brethren, I wish you to know 2 that you were Heathens, and unto idols which have no voice you were led without discernment. 3 I therefore make known to you, that there is no man who by the Spirit of Aloha speaketh, and saith that Jeshu is accursed; [Cherem.] and no man also can say that Jeshu is THE LORD unless by the Spirit of Holiness. 4 Now, there are distributions of gifts, but one is the Spirit; 5 and there are distributions of ministries, but one is the Lord; 6 and distributions of powers, but one is Aloha, who worketh all in every man. 7 But to each is given (such) a revelation of the Spirit as is profitable to him. 8 To one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom, but to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 9 and to another, faith by the same Spirit; and to another, the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 but to another, powers; to another, prophecy; to another, the discernment of spirits; but to another, kinds of tongues; and to another, the interpretation of tongues. 11 But all these one Spirit effecteth, and divideth unto every man as he willeth. 12 For, as the body is one, and in it are many members, but all the members of the body, though many, are one body; so also is the Meshiha. 13 For we all by one Spirit into one body are baptized; whether Jihudoyee or Aramoyee; whether servants or sons of freedom; and all of us have imbibed one Spirit. 14 For the body also is not one member, but many. 15 For if the foot should say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body itself, would it therefore not be of the body itself? 16 And if the ear should say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body itself, would it therefore not be of the body itself? 17 For if the whole body were the eye, where would be the hearing? And if the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? 18 But now hath Aloha set all the members severally in the body as he willed. 19 But if all were one member, where would be the body? 20 But now the members are many, but the body one. 21 The eye is not able to say to the hand, Thou art not needful to me; nor is the hand able to say to the feet, You are not needful to me. 22 But those members which are considered to be feeble, of them is the more especial need; 23 and those which we consider contemptible in the body, to these the more we increase the honour; and on those which are of shame we bestow the greater decoration. 24 But those members that are honourable in us have no need of adornment: [Or, honour.] but Aloha hath contempered the body, and given the more honour to the member which is inconsiderable; 25 that there should be no divisions in the body, but all the members equally one of the other should have care: 26 as that when one member shall be diseased, all may suffer; and if one member be glorified, all the members may be glorified. 27 But you are the body of the Meshiha, and members in your place. 28 FOR Aloha hath placed in the church, first, apostles; after them, prophets; after them, teachers; after them, workers of miracles;[Powers.] after them, gifts of healing, and helpers, and leaders, and kinds of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? 30 Have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues, or do all interpret? 31 But if you are emulous of great gifts, I will yet show you a way more admirable.

1 Corinthians 13:1-14:40

1 Though in every tongue of men and of angels I spoke, and had not love, I should be as brass which soundeth, or a cymbal which giveth voice. 2 And though there were in me prophecy, and I knew all mysteries, and all knowledge, and though there were in me all faith, as that I could remove the mountain,[Mountains. - WALTON'S edit.] and love were not in me, I should be nothing. 3 And if all I have I make to feed the poor, and I deliver my body to burn, and love be not in me, I profit nothing. 4 LOVE is patient and benign; love envieth not; love is not tumultuous, nor inflated; 5 it acteth not with unseemliness, nor seeketh its own; it is not angry, nor thoughtful of evil; 6 it rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth. 7 It endureth every thing, believeth every thing; it hopeth all, endureth all. 8 Love never falleth;[Lo nophel.] for prophecies shall be abolished, and tongues be silent, and knowledge be abolished: 9 for it is a little of much that we know, and a little of much we prophesy; 10 but when the perfection shall have come, then shall be abolished that which is little. 11 When I was a child, as a child I spake, and as a child I thought, and as a child I reasoned; but when I had become a man I abolished these things of childhood. 12 But now as in a mirror we see in a figure;[Or, parable.] but then- the face before the face. Now I know a little of much; but then shall I know even as I am known. 13 For these are the three that remain, faith and hope and love; but the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians 14:1-40

1 Follow (then) after love, and be emulous of the gifts of the Spirit, but especially that you may prophesy. 2 For whoever speaketh in a tongue speaketh not to men but to Aloha; for man heareth nothing that he speaketh but in the Spirit he speaketh mysteries. 3 But he who prophesieth speaketh to men, edification and encouragement and consolation. 4 He who speaketh in a tongue himself edifieth, and he who prophesieth the church edifieth. 5 But I would that all of you could speak with tongues, but especially that you could prophesy. For greater is he who prophesieth than he who speaketh with tongues, unless he interpret. But if he interpret, he edifieth the church. 6 And now, my brethren, if I come to you and speak with you in tongues, what do I profit you, unless I speak with you, or by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophecy, or by doctrine? 7 For those [things] also which have no life in them, and give voice, whether pipe or harp, if distinction be not made between a tone and its fellow, how can it be known what is sung, or what is played?[Or, stricken.] 8 And if the trumpet call a voice which is not distinguished, who will prepare for the battle? 9 So you also, if you speak the word in a tongue, and there be no interpretation, how will it be known what you say? Will you not be as if speaking with the air? 10 For, behold, there are many kinds of tongues in the world, and not one of them hath not signification;[Voice.] 11 but if I do not know the power of the voice, I become as a barbarian to him who speaks, and he also who speaks is a barbarian to me. 12 So also you, while you are emulous of the gifts of the Spirit for the edification of the church, seek that you may excel. 13 And let him who speaketh with tongues pray that he may interpret. 14 For if I am praying in a tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my mind is without fruit. 15 What shall I do then? I will pray with my spirit, and I will pray with my mind; and I will sing with my spirit, and I will sing with my mind. 16 Otherwise, if thou bless with the spirit, how shall he who filleth the place of the unlearned [Hediuto.] say Amen to thy thanksgiving? for he knoweth not what thou sayest. 17 For thou blessest well, but thy neighbour is not edified. 18 I praise Aloha that more than all of you I speak with tongues; 19 but in the church I would rather speak five words with my mind, that others also may learn, than ten thousand words in a tongue. 20 MY brethren, be not children in your minds, but in evils be you babes, and in your minds be perfect. 21 In the law it is written, In a strange language and in another tongue will I speak with this people; yet so will they not hear me, saith the Lord. 22 Hence, tongues are appointed for a sign, not to the believing, but to those who believe not: but prophecy, not for those who believe not, but for those who believe. 23 If then all the church be assembled, and all of you speak with tongues, and the ignorant, or those who believe not enter, will they not say you are insane? 24 And if all should prophesy, and there come in to you the ignorant, or of those who believe not, he is convicted [Or, searched.] by you all, and reproved by you all; 25 and the secrets of his heart are revealed; and then will he fall upon his face and worship Aloha, and say, Truly Aloha is in you. 26 I say then, my brethren, that when you are assembled, if any one of you hath a psalm, let him speak; and (so too) he who hath doctrine, and he who hath a revelation, and he who hath a tongue, and he who hath the interpretation: let all be done unto edification. 27 And if with a tongue any one speak, two shall speak, or at most three, and each shall (separately) speak, and one interpret. 28 And if there be no one who interpreteth, let him who speaketh with a tongue be silent in the church, and between himself and Aloha let him speak. 29 Let the prophets speak, two or three, and let the rest discern. 30 And if [somewhat] to another be revealed while sitting, let the first be silent. 31 For one by one you can all prophesy, that each may learn, and each be edified. 32 For the spirit of the prophets to the prophets is subject. 33 Because Aloha is not of tumult, but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. 34 LET your women in the church be silent; for it is not permitted to them to speak, but to be subject, as also saith the law. 35 But if any wish to learn, in their houses let them ask their husbands; for it is a shame for a woman to speak in the church. 36 Was it from you that the word of Aloha went forth? Or did it come only to you? 37 But if any man of you think that he is a prophet, or that he is spiritual,[Or, of the Spirit.] let him acknowledge these which I write to you to be the commandments of our Lord. 38 But if any man know not, let him not know. 39 Be emulous, therefore, my brethren, to prophesy, and to speak with tongues forbid not; 40 but let every thing be done with decency and in order.

Acts 10:44-48

44 And while Shemun spake these words the Spirit of Holiness overspread all who heard the word. 45 And the circumcised brethren who had come with him were astonished and amazed, because upon the Gentiles also the gift of the Spirit of Holiness was poured out. 46 For they heard them speaking with tongues; and they magnified Aloha. 47 And Shemun said, Can any one forbid waters that they should not be baptized, they who, behold, have received the Spirit of Holiness as well as we? 48 Then he commanded them to be baptized in the name of our Lord Jeshu Meshiha. And they prayed of him to remain with them (certain) days.

1 Corinthians 14:27

27 And if with a tongue any one speak, two shall speak, or at most three, and each shall (separately) speak, and one interpret.

1 Corinthians 13:1

1 Though in every tongue of men and of angels I spoke, and had not love, I should be as brass which soundeth, or a cymbal which giveth voice.

Acts 19:1-7

1 AND while Apolu was in Kurinthos, Paulos itinerated through the upper countries unto Ephesos; and he asked those disciples whom he found there, 2 Have you received the Spirit of Holiness from [the time] that you believed? They answered and said to him, It hath not been heard by us whether there be the Spirit. 3 He saith to them, And into what were you baptized? They said, Into the baptism of Juhanon. 4 Paulos saith to them, Juhanon baptized the people with the baptism of repentance, saying that they should believe in him who was coming after him, who is Jeshu Meshiha. 5 And when they heard these (words), they were baptized in the name of our Lord Jeshu Meshiha. 6 And Paulos laid on them the hand, and the Spirit of Holiness came upon them, and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. 7 But all the men were twelve.

1 Corinthians 14:13

13 And let him who speaketh with tongues pray that he may interpret.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

1 Though in every tongue of men and of angels I spoke, and had not love, I should be as brass which soundeth, or a cymbal which giveth voice. 2 And though there were in me prophecy, and I knew all mysteries, and all knowledge, and though there were in me all faith, as that I could remove the mountain,[Mountains. - WALTON'S edit.] and love were not in me, I should be nothing. 3 And if all I have I make to feed the poor, and I deliver my body to burn, and love be not in me, I profit nothing. 4 LOVE is patient and benign; love envieth not; love is not tumultuous, nor inflated; 5 it acteth not with unseemliness, nor seeketh its own; it is not angry, nor thoughtful of evil; 6 it rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth. 7 It endureth every thing, believeth every thing; it hopeth all, endureth all. 8 Love never falleth;[Lo nophel.] for prophecies shall be abolished, and tongues be silent, and knowledge be abolished: 9 for it is a little of much that we know, and a little of much we prophesy; 10 but when the perfection shall have come, then shall be abolished that which is little. 11 When I was a child, as a child I spake, and as a child I thought, and as a child I reasoned; but when I had become a man I abolished these things of childhood. 12 But now as in a mirror we see in a figure;[Or, parable.] but then- the face before the face. Now I know a little of much; but then shall I know even as I am known. 13 For these are the three that remain, faith and hope and love; but the greatest of these is love.

Romans 3:1-9:33

1 What then is the excellence of the Jihudoya, and what the profit of circumcision? 2 Much in every thing: primarily that they had intrusted (to them) the words of Aloha. 3 For if some of them believed not, would their unbelief abolish the faithfulness of Aloha? 4 Not so: for Aloha is true, and every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mayest be just in thy words, and triumph when they judge thee. 5 But if our iniquity the righteousness of Aloha establisheth, what shall we say? Is Aloha evil, who bringeth his wrath? As a man do I speak. 6 Not so; otherwise how shall Aloha judge the world? 7 For if the truth of Aloha is promoted by my lie unto his glory, why then am I judged as a sinner? 8 Or why, as certain blaspheme concerning us, affirming that we say, Let us do evil, that good may come? they, whose condemnation is reserved by justice. 9 What then, have we attained excellence? (No.) For before we decided of the Jihudoyee and of the Aramoyee that they are all under sin; 10 as it is written, None is righteous, not one. 11 None understandeth or seeketh Aloha. 12 All have declined together and are reprobate, and there is none that doeth good, not one. 13 Open sepulchres are their throats, their tongues have deceived, and the venom of asps is under their lips. 14 Their mouth is full of cursing and bitterness, 15 And their feet are swift to shed blood. 16 Crushing and misery are in their ways; 17 And the way of peace they have not known; 18 And the fear of Aloha is not before their eyes. 19 BUT we know that whatever the law saith, to them who are under the law it saith: that every mouth may be shut, and all the world be guilty unto Aloha. 20 Because by the works of the law no flesh is justified before him; for from the law sin is known. 21 But now, without the law the righteousness of Aloha is revealed, and the law and the prophets (themselves) testify of it. 22 But the righteousness of Aloha is by faith [Lit. "By the hand of faith."] of Jeshu Meshiha, unto all and also upon all who believe in him. For there is no distinction: 23 for all have sinned, and have failed of the glory of Aloha; 24 and all are justified by grace freely, and (that) through the redemption which is in Jeshu Meshiha, 25 whom Aloha before ordained (to be) a propitiation through faith in his blood for our sins which from the first we had sinned, 26 within the space which Aloha hath given to us in his patience, unto the manifestation of his righteousness which (is) in this time: that he might be just, and might justify in righteousness him who is in the faith of our Lord Jeshu Meshiha. 27 Where, then, is boasting? It is abolished. By what law? of works? No, but by the law of faith. 28 We comprehend, therefore, that by faith man is justified, and not by the works of the law. 29 Is Aloha of the Jihudoyee only, and not of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also. 30 Because one is Aloha, who justifieth the circumcision by faith, also the uncircumcision by the same faith. 31 Do we therefore the law abolish by faith? Not so, but the law itself we establish.

Romans 4:1-9:33

1 What then say we of Abraham, the chief of the fathers, that he found in the flesh? 2 For if Abraham by works was justified, he had cause for boasting; but not with Aloha. 3 For what saith the scripture? That Abraham believed Aloha, and he reckoned it to him for righteousness. 4 But to him who worketh, his wages are not reckoned to him as of favour, but as that which is owing to him: 5 but to him who worketh not, but believeth only in him who justifieth sinners, his faith is reckoned to him for righteousness. 6 As also David hath spoken concerning the blessedness of the man to whom Aloha reckoneth righteousness without works, 7 saying, Blessed are they whose iniquity is forgiven, and whose sins are covered. 8 Blessed is the man to whom Aloha reckoneth not his sin. 9 Is this blessedness, then, upon the circumcision (only), or upon the uncircumcision (also)? Now we have said, that his faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness. 10 When, then, was it reckoned to him? In circumcision or in uncircumcision? It was not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision. 11 For he received the sign of circumcision (as) a seal of the righteousness of his faith, which (was his) in uncircumcision, that he should be the father of all them who believe of the uncircumcision; that it might be accounted also to them for righteousness: 12 and the father of the circumcision, not of them who are of the circumcision only, but of them who pursue [Or, accomplish, fulfil.] the footsteps of the faith of uncircumcision of our father Abraham. 13 FOR not through the law was the promise unto Abraham and to his seed that he should be the heir of the world, but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if they who are of the law were heirs, faith would be vain, and the promise be abolished. 15 For the law is the worker of wrath. For where there is no law, there also is no transgression of the law. 16 Therefore it is by faith, which is through grace, that we are justified, that the promise might be firm unto all his seed; not to that which is of the law only, but also to that which is of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all: 17 (as it is written, I have ordained thee the father of many nations before Aloha, in whom thou hast believed, who maketh alive the dead, and calleth those who are not as though they were:) 18 and who, without hope, unto hope believed that he should be the father of many nations, as it is written, that " so shall be thy seed." 19 Nor was he weak in his faith, while considering his body dead, (for he was the son of an hundred years,) and the dead womb of Sara; 20 and at the promise of Aloha he wavered not as deficient in faith, but was strong in faith, and gave glory to Aloha; 21 and was sure that what he had promised to him Aloha could fulfil. 22 Wherefore it was reckoned to him for righteousness. 23 And not for his sake only was this written, that his faith was reckoned for righteousness, 24 but for our sake, because it should be reckoned to us also who believe in Him who hath raised our Lord Jeshu Meshiha from among the dead; 25 who was delivered for our sins, and rose that he might justify us.

Romans 5:1-9:33

1 BECAUSE, then, we are justified by faith, we have peace with Aloha through our Lord Jeshu Meshiha. 2 And by him we have been admitted through faith into this grace in which we stand, and exult in hope of the glory of Aloha. 3 And not thus only, but also in afflictions we exult; for we know that affliction perfecteth patience in us, 4 and patience experience, [Or, proof, probation.] and experience hope: 5 but hope maketh us not ashamed, because the love of Aloha is shed forth upon our hearts by the Spirit of Holiness who is given to us. 6 But if the Meshiha on account of our infirmity in this time for the wicked hath died: 7 for hardly for the wicked one dieth; for on account of the good one may perhaps dare to die. 8 Nevertheless Aloha hath manifested his love for us, in that, when we were sinners, the Meshiha for us died: 9 how much more, then, shall we be now justified through his blood, and by him be delivered from wrath? 10 For if, while we were adversaries, Aloha was reconciled with us through the death of his Son, how much more, then, in reconciliation with him,[Or, in his reconciliation.] shall we be saved by his life? 11 And not thus only, but we also exult in Aloha through our Lord Jeshu Meshiha, by whom we have now received the reconciliation. 12 As by one man sin entered into the world, and by sin death, so death hath passed upon all men through this, that all have sinned. 13 For until the law, sin, while it was in the world, was not reckoned sin, because the law was not; 14 yet death reigned from Adam until Musha on them also who had not sinned after the manner of the transgression of the law of Adam, who was the type of him who was to be. 15 But not as was the fall, so is the gift; for if, on account of the fall of one, many died, how much more the grace of Aloha, and his gift, for the sake of one man, Jeshu Meshiha, in many will abound? 16 And not as the transgression of one, so is the gift; for the judgment that was by one was unto condemnation, but the gift (which saves) from many sins was unto righteousness. 17 For if because of the transgression of one death was made to reign, much more (shall) they who receive the abundance of the grace and of the gift and of righteousness, reign in life by one, Jeshu Meshiha. 18 As then on account of the transgression of one was the condemnation of all men, so, on account of the righteousness of one shall there be acquittal* unto the life of all men. [* Zokutho, Victoria, innocentia, justificatio. Heb. Zakah, Purum fuit, purum pronunciavit. 19 For as on account of the disobedience of one man many became sinners, so also on account of the obedience of one many became righteous. 20 But the entrance which was of the law, (made) sin to increase; and where sin increased, there grace hath abounded: 21 that as sin hath reigned in death, so grace might reign in righteousness unto the life which is eternal, by the hand of our Lord Jeshu Meshiha.

Romans 6:1-9:33

1 WHAT, then, shall we say, Let us remain in sin, that grace may abound? 2 Not so. For how shall they who are dead to* sin live yet in it? [* Or, by, on account of, sin: the particle admitting of either meaning. Compare the Syr. Apoc. 20:11; 1Pe 1:5; 2Co 8:14.] 3 Or do you not know, that they who have been baptized into Jeshu Meshiha, into his death have been baptized? 4 For we are buried with him by baptism into death; that as Jeshu Meshiha arose from among the dead by the glory of his Father, so also we in a new life shall walk. 5 For if together we have been planted with him in the likeness of his death, so also in his resurrection shall we be. 6 For we know that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be abolished, that more we should not serve sin. 7 For he who is dead is set free from sin. 8 If then we are dead with the Meshiha, we believe that with him, with the Meshiha, we shall live: 9 for we know that the Meshiha rose from among the dead, and no more dieth, nor hath death dominion over him. 10 For [as] he who died on account of sin died once, and he who liveth liveth unto Aloha; 11 so also reckon yourselves to be dead unto sin, and alive unto Aloha by our Lord Jeshu Meshiha. 12 Let not sin then reign in your dead body, as that you may obey the lusts of it: 13 nor prepare your members the instruments of iniquity unto sin, but prepare yourselves for Aloha, as men who from the dead have been made alive, and your members instruments to be for the righteousness of Aloha. 14 For sin shall not rule over you; for you are not under law, but under grace. 15 What, then, shall we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace? Not so. 16 Know you not, that to whomsoever you prepare yourselves to obey him unto service, of him you are the servants, of him whom you obey; whether of sin, or of the hearing of the ear of righteousness? 17 But praise to Aloha that you were the servants of sin, but have obeyed from the heart the form of doctrine to which you have been delivered. 18 And when you were made free from sin, you became obedient to righteousness. 19 As among men I speak, because of the infirmity of your flesh, that as you have prepared your members for the service of uncleanness and of iniquity, so also now prepare ye your members for the service of righteousness and of holiness. 20 For when you were the servants of sin, you were free from righteousness. 21 And what product [Odsho.] had you then from that of which to-day you are ashamed? For the end of it is death. 22 And now made free from sin, and become servants to Aloha, you have holy fruits, [Phiree.] of which the end is the life of eternity. 23 For the wages of sin is death; and the gift of Aloha the life of eternity by our Lord Jeshu Meshiha.

Romans 7:1-9:33

1 BUT know you not, my brethren, for to those who know the law I speak, that the law has authority over a man as long as he liveth? 2 as a woman who is bound in law to her husband as long as he liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is freed from the law of her husband. 3 But if, while her husband lives, she adhere to another man, she becometh an adulteress; but if her husband shall die, she is freed from the law, and is not an adulteress, though she become (the wife) of another man. 4 And now, my brethren, you also are dead to the law, through the body of the Meshiha, that you should be married to another, (namely, to) him who rose from the dead, that you may render fruit unto Aloha. 5 For while we were in the flesh, the affections of sin, which are against [Compare the same particle, 2Co 7:2.] the law, wrought powerfully in our members to yield fruits unto death; 6 but now we are loosed from the law, and are dead to that which held us, that we might serve henceforth in the newness of the spirit, and not in the oldness of the writing. 7 What then, say we the law is sin? Not so. But sin I had not learned (to know) but by the law: for I had not known concupiscence (to be sinful), but (by) the law, which hath said, Thou shalt not covet. 8 And by this commandment sin found for itself an occasion, and completed in me all concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead. 9 But I was alive without the law formerly: but when the commandment came, sin lived, and I died. 10 And that commandment of life was found to me (to tend) unto death. 11 For sin, by the occasion it found through the commandment, deceived me, and thereby killed me. 12 The law therefore is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good. 13 The good, then, unto me, unto death was made? Not so. But sin, that it might be seen what sin is, by the good (law) effected death in me, that sin might be the more condemned by the commandment. 14 For we know that the law is spiritual; [Da-ruch, "Of the spirit."] but I am carnal, and sold unto sin. 15 For what I work, I know [Or, acknowledge, approve.] not; and not that which I will, I do; but what I hate, that I do. 16 And if the thing that I would not, I do, I witness of the law that it is good. [Shaphir.] 17 But now it is not I who work this, but sin which dwelleth in me. 18 For I know that in me, but that is in my flesh, good dwelleth not; because to will the good is easy to me, but to perform it I find not. 19 For the good that I will to do, I do not; but the evil that I will not to do, that do I. 20 And if the thing that I will not I do, it is not I who do it, but sin which dwelleth in me. 21 I find then a law which accordeth with my mind, that willeth to do good, because evil is near to me. 22 For I rejoice in the law of Aloha in the interior man; 23 but I see another law in my members, which warreth against the law of my mind, making me captive to the law of sin that is in my members. 24 Miserable son of man am I! who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 I give thanks to Aloha! (it is) by the hand of our Lord Jeshu Meshiha. Now then, I in my mind am the servant of the law of Aloha, but in my flesh* I am the servant of the law of sin. [* Compare verse 13 with Joh 3:6, 7.]

Romans 8:1-9:33

1 Hence, there is no condemnation to them who do not walk according to the flesh, in Jeshu Meshiha. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life, which is in Jeshu Meshiha, hath set thee free from the law of sin and of death. 3 Because the law was weak through the infirmity of the flesh, Aloha sent his Son in the likeness of the flesh of sin, on account of sin to condemn sin in his flesh; 4 that the righteousness of the law might in us be fulfilled, who walk not in the flesh, but in the Spirit. 5 For they who are in the flesh, of that flesh are mindful; and they who are of the Spirit, of that Spirit are mindful. 6 For the mind of the flesh is death, and the mind of the Spirit life and peace. 7 Because the mind of the flesh is enmity towards Aloha; for to the law of Aloha it is not subject, for it cannot be; 8 and they who are in the flesh cannot please Aloha. 9 But you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if truly the Spirit of Aloha dwelleth in you. But if a man have not the Spirit of the Meshiha, this (man) is not his. 10 And if the Meshiha be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised our Lord Jeshu Meshiha from among the dead dwell in you, he who raised our Lord Jeshu Meshiha from among the dead will also make alive your dead bodies, on account of his Spirit who dwelleth in you. 12 Now, my brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, that according to the flesh we should walk. 13 For if after the flesh you live, you must die: but if, after the Spirit, the habitudes of the body you mortify, you live. 14 For they who by the Spirit of Aloha are led, they are the sons of Aloha. 15 For we have not received the spirit of servitude again unto fear, but we have received the Spirit of the adoption* of sons, by whom we cry, Father, our Father! [* Rucho da-simath benayo: The Spirit of the constituting of sons.] 16 And the Spirit himself witnesseth with our spirit, that we are the sons of Aloha. 17 And if sons, heirs also; heirs of Aloha, and the sons of the inheritance of Jeshu Meshiha. For if we suffer with him, with him also shall we be glorified. 18 For I consider that the sufferings of this time are not equal to that glory which is to be revealed in us. 19 For the whole creation hopeth and waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of Aloha. 20 For the creation hath been subjected to vanity, not willingly, [Or, not with her will.] but on account of him who subjected her, 21 upon the hope that the creation herself also shall be made free from the servitude of corruption into the liberty of the glory of the sons of Aloha. 22 For we know that all creatures groan and travail until this day; 23 and not only they, but we also who have in us the first-fruit of the Spirit, groan within ourselves, and wait for the adoption, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in hope we live: but hope that is seen is not hope; for if we see it, why hope we for it? 25 But if we hope for that which is not seen, in patience we wait. 26 So also the Spirit helpeth our infirmity: for what to pray for as we ought we know not; but the Spirit himself prayeth on our behalf in groanings unspoken. 27 But he who searcheth the hearts, he knoweth the mind of the Spirit, who, according to the will of Aloha, prayeth for the saints. 28 BUT we know that those who love Aloha, in every thing he helpeth them for good; them whom he set before that they might be called. 29 And from the first he knew them, and signified* them in the likeness of the image of his Son, that he might be the first-born of many brethren. [* Var'sham enum, Signed, designated, notified them.] 30 But whom he before signified, them he called; and whom he called, them he justified; and whom he justified, them he glorified. 31 What then shall we say of these? If Aloha be for us, who is against us? 32 And if his Son be spared not, but for all of us delivered him up, how will he not with him give us all things? 33 Who is against the chosen of Aloha? Aloha justifieth. 34 Who condemneth? The Meshiha hath died and arisen, and is at the right hand of Aloha, and prayeth for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Meshiha? Affliction, or sorrow, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or the sword? 36 As it is written: For thee all the day long are we killed, we are reckoned as sheep for the slaughter. 37 But in these we all are victorious by the hand of him who hath loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor authorities, nor powers, nor things subsisting, nor things to come, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate me from the love of Aloha which is in our Lord Jeshu Meshiha.

Romans 9:1-33

1 I say the truth in Meshiha, and lie not; my conscience witnesseth for me in the Spirit of Holiness, 2 that I have great grief, and (that) the sorrow of my heart ceaseth not. 3 For I could pray that I myself might be one accursed from Meshiha [Cherem from Meshiha.] instead of my brethren and my kinsmen who are in the flesh; 4 who are the sons of Israel, and whose was the adoption of sons, and the glory, and the covenants, and the law, and the ministry, and the promises, and the fathers; 5 and from whom appeared the Meshiha in the flesh, who is Aloha over all: his be praises and benedictions to the age of ages. Amen. 6 FOR the word of Aloha hath not really fallen:[Fallen to fall.] for not all who are of Israel are Israel; 7 neither also are they who are of the seed of Abraham all children; because it was said, In Ishok shall be called unto thee the seed: 8 but that is, the children of the flesh are not the children of Aloha, but the children of the promise are reckoned the seed. 9 For the promise is this word, In this time I will come, and a son shall be unto Sara. 10 And not this only, but also Raphka when with one, our father Ishok, she had association, 11 before her sons were born, and had not wrought good or evil, the (choice) of Aloha was (made) known before that it should remain: not by works, but by him who called: 12 for it was said, The elder shall be servant to the less; 13 as it is written, Jakub have I loved, and Isu have I hated. 14 What then say we? Is there iniquity with Aloha? Not so: 15 behold, also, he said unto Musha, I will have mercy upon whom I will have mercy, and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious. 16 Therefore it is not by him who willeth, nor by him who runneth, but by Aloha the Merciful. 17 For it is said in the scripture to Pherun, For this I have raised thee up, that I might show in thee my power, and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth. 18 Then upon whom he willeth he is merciful, and whom he willeth he hardeneth. 19 Perhaps thou wilt say, Of what then doth he complain; for who shall arise against his will? 20 Who then art thou, O man, who givest answer against Aloha? Will the mass say to him who formeth it, Why thus hast thou formed me? 21 Or, hath not the potter power over his clay, that from the (same) mass he might make vessels, the one to honour, and the other to vileness? 22 BUT if Aloha, willing to reveal his wrath, and to make known his power, in his much patience bore with the vessels of wrath who were perfected for destruction, 23 and poured his mercy upon the vessels of mercy who were prepared of Aloha for glory, 24 who are we, (ourselves) the called, not only of the Jihudoyee, but also of the Gentiles: 25 so also in Husha he said, I will call them my people who were not my people, and on those on whom I was not merciful, will I be merciful: 26 for it shall be in the place where they were not called my people, there shall they be called the children of Aloha the Living. 27 But Eshaia proclaims of the sons of Israel: Though the number of the sons of Israel were as the sand which is on the sea, the residue of them shall be saved. 28 The Lord hath decreed and determined the word, and will perform it upon the earth. 29 And as that which Eshaia had said before: Unless the Lord of sebaoth had left to us a residue, as Sedum should we have been, and to Amura have been likened. 30 WHAT then shall we say? That the Gentiles who have not followed [Or, ran.] after righteousness have attained righteousness, but that righteousness which is of faith: 31 but Israel, who followed [Or, ran.] after the law of righteousness, unto the law of righteousness have not attained. 32 For why? Because it was not by faith, but by the works of the law: for they stumbled at the stone of stumbling; 33 as it is written, Behold, I lay in Zion a stone of stumbling and a rock of ffence; and whosoever in him shall believe shall not be ashamed.

1 Corinthians 12:1-31

1 BUT concerning spirituals, my brethren, I wish you to know 2 that you were Heathens, and unto idols which have no voice you were led without discernment. 3 I therefore make known to you, that there is no man who by the Spirit of Aloha speaketh, and saith that Jeshu is accursed; [Cherem.] and no man also can say that Jeshu is THE LORD unless by the Spirit of Holiness. 4 Now, there are distributions of gifts, but one is the Spirit; 5 and there are distributions of ministries, but one is the Lord; 6 and distributions of powers, but one is Aloha, who worketh all in every man. 7 But to each is given (such) a revelation of the Spirit as is profitable to him. 8 To one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom, but to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 9 and to another, faith by the same Spirit; and to another, the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 but to another, powers; to another, prophecy; to another, the discernment of spirits; but to another, kinds of tongues; and to another, the interpretation of tongues. 11 But all these one Spirit effecteth, and divideth unto every man as he willeth. 12 For, as the body is one, and in it are many members, but all the members of the body, though many, are one body; so also is the Meshiha. 13 For we all by one Spirit into one body are baptized; whether Jihudoyee or Aramoyee; whether servants or sons of freedom; and all of us have imbibed one Spirit. 14 For the body also is not one member, but many. 15 For if the foot should say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body itself, would it therefore not be of the body itself? 16 And if the ear should say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body itself, would it therefore not be of the body itself? 17 For if the whole body were the eye, where would be the hearing? And if the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? 18 But now hath Aloha set all the members severally in the body as he willed. 19 But if all were one member, where would be the body? 20 But now the members are many, but the body one. 21 The eye is not able to say to the hand, Thou art not needful to me; nor is the hand able to say to the feet, You are not needful to me. 22 But those members which are considered to be feeble, of them is the more especial need; 23 and those which we consider contemptible in the body, to these the more we increase the honour; and on those which are of shame we bestow the greater decoration. 24 But those members that are honourable in us have no need of adornment: [Or, honour.] but Aloha hath contempered the body, and given the more honour to the member which is inconsiderable; 25 that there should be no divisions in the body, but all the members equally one of the other should have care: 26 as that when one member shall be diseased, all may suffer; and if one member be glorified, all the members may be glorified. 27 But you are the body of the Meshiha, and members in your place. 28 FOR Aloha hath placed in the church, first, apostles; after them, prophets; after them, teachers; after them, workers of miracles;[Powers.] after them, gifts of healing, and helpers, and leaders, and kinds of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? 30 Have all the gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues, or do all interpret? 31 But if you are emulous of great gifts, I will yet show you a way more admirable.

Acts 2:1-13

1 AND when the days of pentecost were fulfilled, while they were assembled all together, 2 there was suddenly from heaven the voice as of a mighty wind, and all that house in which they were sitting was filled with it; 3 and tongues that were divided like fire appeared to them, and sat upon each one of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak in several tongues as the Spirit gave them to speak. 5 But there were men dwelling in Urishlem who feared Aloha; Jihudoyee, from all the peoples who are under heaven. 6 And when that voice was made, the whole people assembled and were perturbed, because every man of them heard as they spoke in their (several) tongues. 7 (And) they were all astonished, and wondered, saying one to another, These all who speak, behold, are they not Galiloyee? 8 How hear we (then) each in his own tongue in which we were born? 9 Parthoyee and Medoyee and Alanoyee, and they who dwell in the Place of Rivers,[...] Jihudoyee and Kapadukoyee, and of the region of Pontos and of Asia; 10 and from the land of Phrygia and of Pamphylia and of Metsreen, and the regions of Lybi neighbouring upon Kyrine, and those who come from Rumi, Jihudoyee, and Proselytes, [Gíuree,] 11 and from Krete and Arabia, behold, we hear them speaking in our tongues the wonders of Aloha. 12 But all of them were amazed and admired, saying one to another, Of whom is this thing? 13 But others mocked them, saying, These have drunk new wine, and are inebriate.

1 Corinthians 14:19

19 but in the church I would rather speak five words with my mind, that others also may learn, than ten thousand words in a tongue.

1 Corinthians 14:14

14 For if I am praying in a tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my mind is without fruit.

1 Corinthians 14:2

2 For whoever speaketh in a tongue speaketh not to men but to Aloha; for man heareth nothing that he speaketh but in the Spirit he speaketh mysteries.

1 Corinthians 13:8

8 Love never falleth;[Lo nophel.] for prophecies shall be abolished, and tongues be silent, and knowledge be abolished:

1 Corinthians 14:22

22 Hence, tongues are appointed for a sign, not to the believing, but to those who believe not: but prophecy, not for those who believe not, but for those who believe.

1 Corinthians 14:4

4 He who speaketh in a tongue himself edifieth, and he who prophesieth the church edifieth.

1 Corinthians 14:27-28

27 And if with a tongue any one speak, two shall speak, or at most three, and each shall (separately) speak, and one interpret. 28 And if there be no one who interpreteth, let him who speaketh with a tongue be silent in the church, and between himself and Aloha let him speak.

Acts 2:1-47

1 AND when the days of pentecost were fulfilled, while they were assembled all together, 2 there was suddenly from heaven the voice as of a mighty wind, and all that house in which they were sitting was filled with it; 3 and tongues that were divided like fire appeared to them, and sat upon each one of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak in several tongues as the Spirit gave them to speak. 5 But there were men dwelling in Urishlem who feared Aloha; Jihudoyee, from all the peoples who are under heaven. 6 And when that voice was made, the whole people assembled and were perturbed, because every man of them heard as they spoke in their (several) tongues. 7 (And) they were all astonished, and wondered, saying one to another, These all who speak, behold, are they not Galiloyee? 8 How hear we (then) each in his own tongue in which we were born? 9 Parthoyee and Medoyee and Alanoyee, and they who dwell in the Place of Rivers,[...] Jihudoyee and Kapadukoyee, and of the region of Pontos and of Asia; 10 and from the land of Phrygia and of Pamphylia and of Metsreen, and the regions of Lybi neighbouring upon Kyrine, and those who come from Rumi, Jihudoyee, and Proselytes, [Gíuree,] 11 and from Krete and Arabia, behold, we hear them speaking in our tongues the wonders of Aloha. 12 But all of them were amazed and admired, saying one to another, Of whom is this thing? 13 But others mocked them, saying, These have drunk new wine, and are inebriate. 14 And afterwards arose Shemun Kipha with the eleven apostles, and lifted up his voice and said to them: Men, Jihudoyee, and all who dwell at Urishlem, be this known to you, and hearken to my words. 15 For not as you suppose are these drunken; for, behold, until now are [there but] three hours. 16 But this is that spoken of by Joel the prophet: 17 It shall be in the last days, saith Aloha, I will pour [out] my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your youths shall see visions, and your elders shall dream dreams: 18 And upon the servants and upon the handmaids will I pour my Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy. 19 And I will give signs in heaven, and mighty (deeds) on earth; blood and fire and clouds of smoke: 20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before shall come the day of the Lord, great and fearful; 21 And every one who shall call [upon] the name of the Lord shall be saved. 22 MEN, sons of Israel, hear these words; Jeshu Natsroya, the man who from Aloha appeared with you, with powers and mighty acts, which Aloha wrought among you by his hand, (even) as you know, 23 This, who was separated thereunto by the foreknowledge and by the will of Aloha, you delivered into the hands of the wicked, and crucified and slew. 24 But Aloha raised him, and loosed the bands of Shiul, because it was not possible that he should be holden in Shiul. 25 For David said concerning him, I have foreseen my Lord at all time, who is at my right hand that I should not be moved; 26 Wherefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: and also my body shall sojourn in hope; 27 For thou wilt not leave my soul in Shiul, nor give thy Saint to see corruption. 28 Thou wilt reveal to me the way of life, thou wilt fill me with joy with thy presence. 29 Men, brethren, suffer me to speak openly with you concerning the chief-father David, that he is dead and also buried, and his sepulchre is with us till this day. 30 For he was a prophet, and knew that the oath Aloha had sworn to him, Of the fruit of thy loins I will cause to sit upon thy throne: 31 And he foresaw and spake concerning, the resurrection of the Meshiha, that He would not be left in Shiul, nor would his body see corruption. 32 This Jeshu hath Aloha raised, and we all are his witnesses. 33 And he it is who at the right hand of Aloha is exalted, and hath received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, and hath shed forth this gift, which, behold, you see and you hear. 34 For David hath not ascended into heaven, because he himself hath said, The Lord said unto my Lord, sit thou at my right hand 35 Until I place thine adversaries the stool of thy feet. 36 Assuredly, then, let all the house of Israel know, that Lord and Meshiha hath Aloha made this Jeshu, whom you crucified. 37 AND when they heard, they were pierced in their heart,* and said to Shemun and to the rest of the apostles, What shall we do, brethren? [* Consternavit, permovit animo. Ethpa. Perculsus, permotus, compunctus est.] 38 Shemun saith to them, Repent, and be baptized, every man of you, in the name of the Lord Jeshu, for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For to you is the promise, and to your children, and to all them who are afar off, whom Aloha himself shall call. 40 And with many other words he testified to them and entreated of them, saying, Save (yourselves) from this perverse generation. 41 And some of them eagerly received his word and believed and were baptized, and there were added in that day as three thousand souls. 42 And they were faithful in the doctrine of the apostles, and participated in prayer and in the breaking of the eucharist. 43 And solemnity was on every soul; and many signs and mighty acts were done by the hand of the apostles in Urishlem. 44 And all those who believed were together, and every thing they had was in common. 45 And they who had property sold it, and divided to each according to that which he needed. 46 And every day they continued in the temple with one soul, and in the house they brake the bread, and took their food rejoicing and in the cleanness of their hearts, 47 praising Aloha, (and) given (to be) in favour before all the people. And our Lord added daily them who were saved into the church.

1 Corinthians 14:1-40

1 Follow (then) after love, and be emulous of the gifts of the Spirit, but especially that you may prophesy. 2 For whoever speaketh in a tongue speaketh not to men but to Aloha; for man heareth nothing that he speaketh but in the Spirit he speaketh mysteries. 3 But he who prophesieth speaketh to men, edification and encouragement and consolation. 4 He who speaketh in a tongue himself edifieth, and he who prophesieth the church edifieth. 5 But I would that all of you could speak with tongues, but especially that you could prophesy. For greater is he who prophesieth than he who speaketh with tongues, unless he interpret. But if he interpret, he edifieth the church. 6 And now, my brethren, if I come to you and speak with you in tongues, what do I profit you, unless I speak with you, or by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophecy, or by doctrine? 7 For those [things] also which have no life in them, and give voice, whether pipe or harp, if distinction be not made between a tone and its fellow, how can it be known what is sung, or what is played?[Or, stricken.] 8 And if the trumpet call a voice which is not distinguished, who will prepare for the battle? 9 So you also, if you speak the word in a tongue, and there be no interpretation, how will it be known what you say? Will you not be as if speaking with the air? 10 For, behold, there are many kinds of tongues in the world, and not one of them hath not signification;[Voice.] 11 but if I do not know the power of the voice, I become as a barbarian to him who speaks, and he also who speaks is a barbarian to me. 12 So also you, while you are emulous of the gifts of the Spirit for the edification of the church, seek that you may excel. 13 And let him who speaketh with tongues pray that he may interpret. 14 For if I am praying in a tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my mind is without fruit. 15 What shall I do then? I will pray with my spirit, and I will pray with my mind; and I will sing with my spirit, and I will sing with my mind. 16 Otherwise, if thou bless with the spirit, how shall he who filleth the place of the unlearned [Hediuto.] say Amen to thy thanksgiving? for he knoweth not what thou sayest. 17 For thou blessest well, but thy neighbour is not edified. 18 I praise Aloha that more than all of you I speak with tongues; 19 but in the church I would rather speak five words with my mind, that others also may learn, than ten thousand words in a tongue. 20 MY brethren, be not children in your minds, but in evils be you babes, and in your minds be perfect. 21 In the law it is written, In a strange language and in another tongue will I speak with this people; yet so will they not hear me, saith the Lord. 22 Hence, tongues are appointed for a sign, not to the believing, but to those who believe not: but prophecy, not for those who believe not, but for those who believe. 23 If then all the church be assembled, and all of you speak with tongues, and the ignorant, or those who believe not enter, will they not say you are insane? 24 And if all should prophesy, and there come in to you the ignorant, or of those who believe not, he is convicted [Or, searched.] by you all, and reproved by you all; 25 and the secrets of his heart are revealed; and then will he fall upon his face and worship Aloha, and say, Truly Aloha is in you. 26 I say then, my brethren, that when you are assembled, if any one of you hath a psalm, let him speak; and (so too) he who hath doctrine, and he who hath a revelation, and he who hath a tongue, and he who hath the interpretation: let all be done unto edification. 27 And if with a tongue any one speak, two shall speak, or at most three, and each shall (separately) speak, and one interpret. 28 And if there be no one who interpreteth, let him who speaketh with a tongue be silent in the church, and between himself and Aloha let him speak. 29 Let the prophets speak, two or three, and let the rest discern. 30 And if [somewhat] to another be revealed while sitting, let the first be silent. 31 For one by one you can all prophesy, that each may learn, and each be edified. 32 For the spirit of the prophets to the prophets is subject. 33 Because Aloha is not of tumult, but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. 34 LET your women in the church be silent; for it is not permitted to them to speak, but to be subject, as also saith the law. 35 But if any wish to learn, in their houses let them ask their husbands; for it is a shame for a woman to speak in the church. 36 Was it from you that the word of Aloha went forth? Or did it come only to you? 37 But if any man of you think that he is a prophet, or that he is spiritual,[Or, of the Spirit.] let him acknowledge these which I write to you to be the commandments of our Lord. 38 But if any man know not, let him not know. 39 Be emulous, therefore, my brethren, to prophesy, and to speak with tongues forbid not; 40 but let every thing be done with decency and in order.
