FOR the all-saving grace of Aloha hath appeared to all men,
and teacheth us to deny wickedness and the lusts of the world, and to live in this world in purity, and in rectitude, and in the fear of Aloha,
But the fruits of the Spirit are, love, joy, peace, prolonging of the spirit, benignity, goodness, fidelity,
meekness, patience; against these the law is not set.
but my body I subdue and make subservient, lest when to others I shall have preached, I my very self shall be rejected.
For Aloha hath not given to us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of discipline.
For every man who contendeth from every thing (besides with) holdeth his mind; and they who run (do it) that they may receive a crown that is corruptible, but we one that is incorruptible.
Sleep we not, therefore, as the rest; but be wakeful and sober.
And be not likened unto this world, but be changed by the renewing of your minds, that you may discern what is the will of Aloha, good, and acceptable, and perfect.
And you, my beloved brethren, let every one of you be swift to hear, and slow to speak, and slow to be angry;
5 So, with this, bringing in all diligence, add to your faith virtue; but to virtue knowledge,
6 but to knowledge perseverance, but to perseverance patience, but to patience godliness,
7 but to godliness brotherly kindness, but to brotherly kindness love.
For your wrestling is not with flesh and blood (only), but with princes, and with powers, and with the possessors of this dark world, and with the evil spirits who are under heaven.
Be watchful of yourselves, that not any thing perish which you have wrought; but (that with) a complete reward you may be recompensed.
Temptation cometh not (upon) you but what cometh on mankind; but faithful is Aloha, who will not permit you to be tempted more than you are able, but will make to your temptation a departure, that you may be able to endure.
