Thus, saith Yahweh Accursed is the manWho trusteth in a son of earth, And hath made flesh his arm,And whose heart from Yahweh, turneth aside:
Man that is born of a woman, is of few days, and full of trouble:
An elderly man, do not thou reprimand, but beseech him, as father,younger men, as brothers,
What is a mortal, that thou shouldst nurture him? Or that thou shouldst fix upon him thy mind?
The enmity, in his fleshthe law of commandments in decreesbringing to nought,that, the two, he might create in himself, into one man of new mould, making peace.
45 Thus, also, it is writtenThe first man, Adam, became, a living soul, the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.
46 Howbeit, not first, is the of the spirit, but that, of the soul,afterwards, that of the spirit.
47 The first man, is of the ground, earthy, the second man, is, of heaven:
48 As, the man of earth, such, also, the men of earth, and, as, the man of heaven, such, also, the men of heaven;
49 And, even as we have borne the image of the man of earth, let us also bear the image of the man of heaven.
But one somewhere hath borne witness, sayingWhat is man, that thou shouldst make mention of him? Or the son of man, that thou shouldst put him in charge?
For let not that man think that he shall receive anything from the Lord
A two-souled man, unstable in all his ways.
From Yahweh, are a mans steps, a son of earth, thenhow can he discern his way?
And God saidLet us make man in our image after our likenessand let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the bird of the heavens and over the tame-beastand over all the land, and over every creeping thing, that creepeth on the land.
And God created the man in his own image, In the image of God, created he him,Male and female, created he, them.
To man, belong the preparations of the heart, but, from Yahweh, cometh the answer of the tongue.
Then heard they the sound of Yahweh God, walking to and fro in the garden at the breeze of the day,so he hid himselfthe man with his wife, from the face of Yahweh God, amid the trees of the garden.
But, thou, O man of God! from these things, flee! and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, meekness;
For, before the eyes of Yahweh, are the ways of a man,and, all his tracks, doth he consider:
When I was a child, I used to speak as a child, to prefer as child, to reason as a child: now I have become a man, I have laid aside the things of the child!
22 That ye were to strip offas regardeth the former behaviourthe old man, who corrupteth himself according to his deceitful covetings,
23 And were to be getting young again in the spirit of your mind,
24 And were to put on the man of new mould, who, after God, hath been created in his truthful righteousness and loving kindness.
Shall, mortal man, be more just than GOD? Or a man be more pure than, his Maker?
For this cause,just as, through one man, sin into the world entered, and through sin, death,and, so, unto all men death passed through, for that all had sinned;
