Deus nos chamou
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.
30 But whom he before signified, them he called; and whom he called, them he justified; and whom he justified, them he glorified.
Upon this the more, my brethren, be careful, that by your good works your calling and your election you may confirm; for, while you do these, you will never lapse;
for so abundantly shall be given to you the entrance of the eternal kingdom of our Lord and our Saviour Jeshu Meshiha.
and hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and brought us into the kingdom of his beloved Son,
in whom we have redemption and the forgiveness of sins:
No man can come to me unless the Father who sent me shall attract him, and I will raise him at the last day.
Listen, my beloved brethren: Hath not Aloha chosen the poor of the world, but rich in faith, to be heirs in that kingdom which Aloha hath promised to them who love him?
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.
For to you is the promise, and to your children, and to all them who are afar off, whom Aloha himself shall call.
8 Wherefore be not thou ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner; but sustain evil with the gospel, through the power of Aloha,
9 who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling; not according to our works, but according to his will, and that grace of his which was given to us in Jeshu Meshiha before the time of the worlds,
10 and is now revealed by the revelation of our Saviour Jeshu Meshiha, who hath abolished death, and hath demonstrated life and incorruption, through the gospel,
For many are the called, but few the chosen.
But the God of grace, who hath called us to his eternal glory by Jeshu Meshiha, will give to us while we endure these few afflictions to be strengthened, and confirmed, and established in him for ever.
For you see also your calling, my brethren, that not many among you are wise after the flesh, and not many among you are powerful, and not many among you are of noble birth;
but Aloha hath chosen the simple of the world, to shame the wise, and he hath chosen the weak of the world, to shame the mighty,
and would enlighten the eyes of your hearts to know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance for the saints,
and what is the inheritance of his power in us who believe, according to the operation of the might of his power,
because I am confident of this, that he who hath begun good workings in you will himself make perfect until the day of our Lord Jeshu Meshiha.
