Render therefore to every man as is due to him: to whom tribute (is due,) tribute; and to whom custom, custom; and to whom reverence, reverence; and to whom honour, honour.
But before every thing, my brethren, swear not; by heaven nor by earth, nor with any other oath; but let your word be Yes, yes, and No, no, that you be not bound under condemnation.
NO man lighteth a lamp, and covereth it with a measure, or setteth it under a bed; but setteth it upon a candlestick, that every one who cometh in may see the light of it.
But confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed. For great is the power of that prayer which the righteous prayeth.
But we have rejected the secrets of shamefulness; and walk not with craft, nor deal deceitfully (with) the word of Aloha; but by the revelation of the truth make we ourselves manifest to the minds of all men before Aloha.
And be careful to establish thyself perfectly before Aloha, a workman without shame, preaching rightly the word of truth.
My sons, let us not love one another in words and in tongue, but in works and in truth.
and lie not one to another, but put off the old man with all his manners,
with regard to this great bounty which is to be administered by us. For we are careful for the things which are comely, not only before Aloha, but also before men.
And if we say that we have communion with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and in the truth do not proceed;
On this account also give we tribute to them; for they are the servants of Aloha over these things constituted.
And repay to no man evil for evil, but be careful to do good before all men.
But the wisdom that is from above is pure, and full of peace, and meekness, and obedience, and full of mercies and good fruits, and is without division, and faces accepteth not.
Blessed they who are pure in their hearts, for they shall see Aloha.
