13 But what shall we say of them who say, To-day or tomorrow we will go to this city, or that, and work there one year, and negotiate, and make gain?
14 and they know not what shall be on the morrow: for what is our life, but a vapour which for a little while is seen, and vanisheth and endeth?
15 For instead they should say, If the Lord will, and we live, we will do this or that.
16 They glory in their pride. All glorying such as this is from the Evil.
17 And he who knoweth the good and doeth it not, sin is to him.
For they, during a little time, as they willed, chastised us; but Aloha for our advantage, that we might partake of his holiness.
For all chastisement, in its time, is not considered as joy, but as grief; but, in the end, the fruit of peace and righteousness it giveth unto them who with it have been exercised.
and with all these charity, which is the girdle of perfection.
And let the peace of the Meshiha direct your hearts, for to it you have been called in one body; and give thanks to the Meshiha,
12 I have not yet received, nor (am I) yet perfected; but I run, that so I may lay hold on that for the sake of which Jeshu the Meshiha hath laid hold on me.
13 MY brethren, I think not concerning myself that I have laid hold (of the final prize); but one (thing) I know, that what is behind me I forget, and to that which is before me
14 I stretch, and run towards the sign, to obtain the victory of the high vocation of Aloha by Jeshu Meshiha.
15 Let those, then, who are mature consider these things; and if otherwise you consider, this also will Aloha reveal to you.
Whoever therefore is in the Meshiha is a new creature; the old things have passed, and every thing hath become new
MY brethren, I think not concerning myself that I have laid hold (of the final prize); but one (thing) I know, that what is behind me I forget, and to that which is before me
I stretch, and run towards the sign, to obtain the victory of the high vocation of Aloha by Jeshu Meshiha.
Blessed be Aloha, the Father of our Lord Jeshu Meshiha, who by his abundant grace hath begotten us anew through the resurrection of our Lord Jeshu Meshiha unto the hope of salvation,
