Wherefore be consoling one another, and building up, each the other,even as ye are also doing.
Showing hospitality one to another without murmuring,
1 Lo! how good and how delightful, for brethren, to dwell together even as one.
2 Like the precious oil upon the head, descending upon the beard; the beard of Aaron,which descended unto the opening of his robe:
3 Like the dew of Hermon, which descended upon the mountains of Zion,for, there, did Yahweh command the blessing, Life, unto times age-abiding?
For, ye, on a footing of freedom, were called, brethren,only, not your freedom into an occasion to the flesh, but, by means of your love, be serving one another;
And let us attentively consider one another, to provoke unto love and noble works,
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, according to the custom of some, but exhorting, and by so much the more as this, by as much as ye behold, the day, drawing near.
In your brotherly love, unto one another, being tenderly affectioned, in honour, unto one another, giving preference;
And be ye gracious one to another, tenderly affectionate, in favour forgiving one anothereven as, God also, in Christ, hath in favour forgiven you;
41 They, therefore, who welcomed his word, were immersed; and there were added, on that day, about three thousand souls.
42 And they went on to give constant attentionunto the teaching of the apostles, and unto the fellowship, unto the breaking of bread, and unto the prayers.
43 And there came on every soul, fear, and, many wonders and signs, through means of the apostles, were coming to pass.
44 And, all who believed, with one accord, began to hold all things common;
45 and, their possessions and goods, were they selling and distributing them unto all, in so far as anyone had need.
46 And, daily giving attendance with one intent in the temple and, at home, breaking bread, they were partaking of food with exultation and singleness of heart;
47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And, the Lord, was adding them who were being saved, daily, together.
If we sayWe have, fellowship, with him! and, in darkness, are walking, we are dealing falsely, and not doing the truth;
Whereas, if, in the light, we are walking, as, he, is in the light, we have, fellowship one with another, and, the blood of Jesus his Son, is cleansing us from all sin.
Finally, brethren, farewell! Be getting restored, be taking encouragement, be of one mind, live in peace,and, the God of love and peace, will be with you.
Having purified, your souls, by the obedience of the truth, unto unfeigned brotherly affection, from the heart, love, one another, earnestly;
Let, the word of the Christ, dwell within you richly,in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another, with psalms, hymns, spiritual songs, with gratitude, raising song with your hearts unto God:
If there be, therefore, any encouragement in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of spirit, if any tender affections and compassions,
Fill ye up my joythat, the same thing, ye esteem, the same love, possessing, joined in soul, the one thing, esteeming,
A new commandment, give I unto you,That ye be loving one another: Just as I loved you, that, ye also, be loving one another:
9 Better are two, than one,in that they have a good reward for their toil.
10 For, if the one should fall, would raise up his companion,but alas! for him who is alone when he falleth, with no second to raise him up!
11 Moreover, if two lie together, then have they warmth,but how can, one, have warmth?
12 And, though an enemy should prevail against one, two, might make a stand before him,and, a threefold cord, cannot soon be broken.
So that together have we been wont to find sweetness in counsel, In the house of God, used we to walk in the throng.
