And he said to his disciples, Beware of all avarice: for life is not in the abundance of riches.
For what is a man profited, if the whole world he gain, and his soul be lost?
Who of you is wise and instructed? let him show his works in good conversations in meek wisdom.
25 WHEREFORE I say unto you, Let not your souls be anxious what you shall eat and what you shall drink, and for your bodies what you shall wear. Is not the life more excellent than food, and the body than raiment?
26 Behold the fowls of the heaven; they sow not, neither do they reap, nor collect into granaries; yet your Father who is in heaven nourisheth them: are you not far more considerable than they?
27 But who among you by being anxious can add to his stature one cubit?
for whosoever believeth in me, as have said the scriptures, rivers of living waters shall flow from his belly.
Who then willeth life, And loveth good days to see? Let him keep his tongue from evil, And his lips that they speak not guile.
Let him depart from evil and do good, And seek peace and run after it.
and with the Meshiha am I crucified, and from henceforth I live not, but in me liveth Meshiha; and this that I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of Aloha, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Follow after peace with every man, and after holiness, without which man our Lord seeth not.
Jeshu saith to him, I (am) the way, and the truth, and the life. No man cometh unto my Father unless by me.
But this is the life which is eternal, that they know thee, who art the true Aloha, and Him whom thou hast sent, Jeshu Meshicha.
And study to be quiet and be occupied with your own employments, and work with your hands, as we have admonished you;
that you may walk becomingly towards the outward-ones, and of man you may not need.
Jeshu saith to them, I am the bread of life: he who cometh to me shall not hunger, and he who believeth in me shall not thirst, for ever.
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.
For by faith we walk, and not by sight.
Blessed the man who endureth temptations: for when he hath been proved he shall receive the crown of life, which Aloha hath promised unto them who love him.
And all that you do, from all your heart do (it), as to our Lord, and not as to men.
And know that from our Lord you receive the reward in the inheritance; for the Lord the Meshiha you serve.
For the wages of sin is death; and the gift of Aloha the life of eternity by our Lord Jeshu Meshiha.
Jeshu saith to her, I am the Resurrection and the Life; and (he) who believeth in me, although he will die, shall live.
And every one who liveth and believeth in me, for ever shall not die. Believest thou this?
The thief cometh not but to steal and to kill and destroy: I am come that they may have life, and that which is more.
34 AND Jeshu called to the assemblies with his disciples, and said to them, Whoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and come after me.
35 For every one who willeth to save his life shall lose it; and every one who shall lose his life on account of me and on account of my gospel, shall save it.
36 For what is a man profited, if the whole world he gain, and his soul be lost?
37 Or what shall a son of man give (as) the compensation for his soul?
38 For whoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this generation, sinful and adulterous, the Son of man will also be ashamed of him, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
See then that you walk vigilantly, not as fools,
but as the wise who redeem their opportunity, because the days are evil.
