Mistake not; for Evil narrations corrupt well-disposed minds.
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.
Now, therefore, while the time is ours, let us do good unto every man, and especially to the sons of the house of the faith.
and be gentle one with another, and affectionate, and forgive one another, even as Aloha in the Meshiha hath forgiven us.
So also let women with decorous simplicity of apparel,with modesty and with chastity, adorn themselves, not with braidings, and with gold, and with pearls, and with fine vestments,
but with good works, as becometh women who profess the fear of Aloha.
Nor do they kindle a lamp and place it beneath a measure, but on a candlestick, and it enlighteneth all who are in the house.
So let your light shine before the sons of men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
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.
Every thing is lawful for me, but every thing is not expedient; every thing is lawful, but every thing doth not edify.
And who (is he) who will do you evil if you be emulous of good (actions)?
Be you therefore merciful, as also your Father is merciful.
who gave himself for us, to redeem us from all iniquity, and to cleanse unto himself a new people, who are zealous of good works.
Let not evil overcome you, but overcome evil with good.
And let not your love be guileful; abhor things evil, cleave to the good.
Let no hateful word come out of your mouth, but that which is comely and useful for edification, that it may communicate grace to those who hear.
For it is in the power of Aloha to increase in you every good, that you may always have every thing sufficient, and that you may abound in every good work.
