But, as many as did receive him, he gave, unto them, authority, children of God, to become,unto them who were believing on his name:
Whonot of bloods, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, butof God, were born.
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.
7 For the sake of discipline, persevere! As towards sons, God, beareth himself, towards you; for who is a son whom a father doth not discipline?
8 If however ye are without discipline, whereof, all, have received a share, then, are ye, bastards, and, not sons.
9 Furthermore, indeed, the fathers of our flesh, we used to have, as administrators of discipline, and we used to pay deference: shall we not, much rather, submit ourselves to the Father of our spirits and, live?
10 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:
And, answering them, he saithWho are my mother and my brethren?
And, looking around on them who, about him, in a circle, were sitting, he saith, See! my mother and my brethren!
Whosoever shall do the will of God, the same, is my brother and sister and mother.
An elderly man, do not thou reprimand, but beseech him, as father,younger men, as brothers,
Elderly women, as mothers, younger women, as sisters, in all chastity.
For ye have not received a spirit of servitude, leading back into fear, but ye have received a spirit of sonship, whereby we are exclaimingAbba! Oh Father!
The Spirit itself, beareth witness together with our spirit that we are children of God;
And, if children, heirs alsoheirs, indeed, of God, but co-heirs with Christ,if, at least, we are suffering together, in order that we may also be glorified together.
4 But, when the fulness of the time came, God sent forth his Son, who came to be of a woman, who came to be under law,
5 That, them who were under law, he might redeem, that, the sonship, we might duly receive;
6 And, because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, exclaiming, Abba! Oh Father!
7 So that, no longer, art thou a servant, but a son; and, if a son, an heir also, through God.
For ye, all, are, sons of God, through the faith in Christ Jesus;
For ye, as many as, into Christ, have been immersed, have put Christ, on:
There cannot be Jew or Greek, there cannot be bond or free, there cannot be male and female, for, all ye, are one, in Christ Jesus:
Now, the slave, doth not abide in the house, evermore. The Son, abideth, evermore.
So, we, the many, are one body in Christ, yet, severally, members one of another.
Behold, what manner of love, the Father hath bestowed upon usthat, children of God, we should be called,and such we are! Therefore, the world understandeth us not, because it understood not him.
Beloved! now, are we, children of God; and, not yet, hath it been made manifest, what we shall be,We know that, if it should be made manifest, like unto him, shall we be, because we shall see him, just as he is.
Hence, then, as we have opportunity, let us be working what is good, towards all,but, especially, towards the family of the faith.
And, whether one member, suffereth, all the members, suffer with it, or, a member is glorified, all the members, rejoice together.
For this cause, I bow my knees unto the Father,
From whom every fatherhood in heavens and upon the earth is named,
marking us out beforehand unto sonship, through Jesus Christ, for himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
Unto the praise of the glory of his favour wherewith he favoured us in the Beloved One,
19 Hence, thenno longer, are ye strangers and sojourners, but ye are fellow-citizens of the saints, and members of the household of God,
20 Having been built up on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, there being, for chief corner stone, Jesus Christ himself,
21 In whom, an entire building, in process of being fitly joined together, is growing into a holy shrine in Lord;
22 In whom, ye also, are being builded together, into a habitation of God in Spirit.
Jesus said unto themIf, God, had been your father, ye had been loving me, for, I, from God, came forth, and am here; for, not even of myself, have I come, but, he, sent me forth.
