But, they who wait for Yahweh, shall renew their strength, They shall mount on strong pinion like eagles,They shall run and not grew weary, They shall walk and not faint.
13 Come now! ye that sayToday or To-morrow, we will journey unto this city here, and will spend there a year, and will trade and get gain,
14 Men who are not versed in the morrowof what sort your life ; for ye are, a vapourfor a little, appearing, then, just disappearing!
15 Instead of your sayingIf, the Lord, be pleased, we shall both, live and do this or that;
16 Whereas, now, are ye boasting in your pretensions:All boasting like this, is, wicked,
17 To him, therefore, who knoweth how to be doing, a right thing, and is not doing it, it is, sin, unto him.
Oh taste and see, that good is Yahweh,How happy the man who seeketh refuge in him!
For, they, indeed, for a few days, according to that which seemed good to them, were administering discipline; but, he, unto that which is profitable, with view to our partaking of his holiness:
But, no discipline, for the present, indeed, seemeth to be of joy, but of sorrow: afterwards, howeverto them who thereby have been trained, it yieldeth peaceful fruit, of righteousness.
For, I, know the plans which I am planning for you Declareth Yahweh,Plans of welfare and not of calamity, To give you a future and a hope.
25 And I will throw upon you clean water and ye shall he clean, From all your uncleannesses and from all your manufactured gods, will I cleanse you;
26 And I will give you a new heart, And a new spirit, will I put within you,-And I will take away the heart of stone, of your flesh, And will give you a heart of flesh;
27 And my spirit, will I put within you, And will cause That in my statutes, ye shall walk, And my regulations, ye shall observe, and do;
And, over all these things, love, which is a uniting-bond of completeness;
And let, the peace of Christ, act as umpire in your hearts, unto which ye have been called in one body, and be thankful:
Everything, hath he made beautiful in its own time,also, intelligence, hath he put in their heart, without which men could not find out the work which God hath wrought, from the beginning even unto the end.
12 Not that I have, already, received, or have, already, reached perfection, but I am pressing onif I may even lay hold of that for which I have also been laid hold of by Christ Jesus :
13 Brethren! I, as to myself, reckon that I have, not yet, laid hold; one thing, however,the things behind, forgetting, and, unto the things before, eagerly reaching out,
14 With the goal in view, I press on for the prize of the upward calling of God in Christ Jesus.
15 As many, therefore, as are full-grown, let, this, be our resolve; and, if, somewhat differently, ye are resolved, this, also, shall, God, unto you reveal.
On the contrary, now, no longer, are we gaining it. So that, if any one is in Christ, there is a new creation! the old things, have passed away,Lo! they have become new!
Brethren! I, as to myself, reckon that I have, not yet, laid hold; one thing, however,the things behind, forgetting, and, unto the things before, eagerly reaching out,
With the goal in view, I press on for the prize of the upward calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who, according to his great mercy, hath regenerated us unto a living hope, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from among the dead,
A pure heart, create for me, O God, And, a steadfast spirit, renew within me.
Do not cast me away from thy presence, And, thy Holy Spirit, do not take from me:
Be resigned to Yahweh, yea wait with longing for him; Burn not with vexation at him who prospereth in his way,at the man who doeth wickedness.
