But, he, knoweth the way that I choose, Having tried me, as gold, I shall come forth.
Of his steps, my foot taketh hold, His way, have I kept, and not swerved;
For, oft, are we stumbling, one and all: If anyone, in word, doth not stumble, the same, is a mature man, able to curb even the whole body.
Until even now, ye have asked nothing in my name: Be asking, and ye shall receive,that, your joy, may be made full.
As for God, blameless is his way,the speech of Yahweh, hath been proved, a shield, he is to all who seek refuge in him.
Yea he treasureth, for the upright, safety, A shield to them who walk in integrity,
Religious observance, pure and undefiled with our God and Father, is, thisto be visiting orphans and widows in their affliction, unspotted, to keep, himself, from the world.
Every good giving, and every perfect gift, is, from above, coming down from the Father of lightswith whom is no alternation, nor shadow cast, by turning:
ALEPH. How happy the men of blameless life, who walk in the law of Yahweh.
As for GOD, blameless is his way, The speech of Yahweh hath been proved, A shield, he is to all who seek refuge in him.
But I beseech you, brethren, through the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,that, the same thing, ye, all, be saying, and that there be not, among you, divisions; but that ye be fitly joined togetherin the same mind, and in the same judgment.
And, over all these things, love, which is a uniting-bond of completeness;
And be not configuring yourselves unto this age, but be transforming yourselves by the renewing of your mind, to the end ye may be proving what is the thing willed by Godthe good and acceptable and perfect.
These things, have I spoken unto you, that, my own joy, in you, may be, and, your joy, may be made full.
See that none, evil for evil, unto any, do render: but, evermore, what is good, be pursuing, towards one another, and towards all:
1 If there be, therefore, any encouragement in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of spirit, if any tender affections and compassions,
2 Fill ye up my joythat, the same thing, ye esteem, the same love, possessing, joined in soul, the one thing, esteeming,
3 Nothing by way of faction, nothing by way of vain-glory,but, in lowliness of mind, accounting, one another, superior to yourselves,
4 Not, to your own things, severally looking, but, to the things of others, severally:
5 The same thing, esteem, in yourselves, which also, in Christ Jesus, ,
6 Who, in form of God, subsisting, not, a thing to be seized, accounted the being equal with God,
7 But, himself, emptied, taking, a servants form, coming to be, in mens likeness;
8 And, in fashion, being found, as a man, humbled himself, becoming obedient as far as death, yea, death upon a cross.
9 Wherefore also, God, uplifted him far on high, and favoured him with the name which is above every name,
10 In order that, in the name of Jesus, every knee might bowof beings in heaven, and on earth, and underground,
11 And, every tongue, might openly confessthat Jesus Christ is, Lord, unto the glory of God the Father.
12 So, then, my belovedeven as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but, now, much more, in my absence, with fear and trembling, your own salvation, be working out;
13 For it is, God, who energiseth within you, both the desiring and the energising, in behalf of his good pleasure.
14 All things, be doing, apart from murmurings and disputings;
15 In order that ye may become faultless and inviolate, children of God, blameless amidst a crooked and perverted generation, amongst whom ye appear as luminaries in the world,
16 A word of light, holding forth,as a matter of boasting unto me, for the day of Christ,that, not in vain, I ran, nor, in vain, I toiled:
17 Nay! if I am even to be poured out as a drink-offering, upon the sacrifice and public ministry of your faith, I rejoice, yea rejoice together with you all,
18 For the same cause, moreover, do, ye also, rejoice, yea rejoice together with me.
19 I am hoping, however, in the Lord JesusTimothy, shortly, to send unto you, in order that, I also, may be of cheerful soul, when I have ascertained the things that concern you.
20 For, no one, have I, of equal soul, who, genuinely, as to the things that concern you, will be anxious;
21 For, they all, their own things, do seek, not the things of Christ Jesus;
22 But, of the proof of him, be taking note,that, as child, with father, with me, hath he done service for the glad-message;
23 Him, indeed, therefore, am I hoping to sendas soon as I can look off from the things that concern myself,forthwith.
24 I am assured, however, in the Lord,that I, myself, shall shortly come.
25 Needful, nevertheless have I accounted itEpaphroditus, my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, but your apostle and public minister to my need, to send unto you;
26 Since he hath been longing to see, you all, and hath been in great distress, because ye had heard he was sick;
27 And, in fact, he was sick, nigh unto death; but, God, had mercy on him,and, not on him only, but, on me also, lest, sorrow upon sorrow, I should have.
28 The more promptly, therefore, have I sent him, that, seeing him again, ye may rejoice, and, I, the less sorrowful, may be.
29 Be giving him welcome, therefore, in the Lord, with all joy; and, such as he, in honour, be holding,
30 Because, for the sake of the work of the Lord, unto death, he drew nigh, running hazard with his life, that he might fill up your lack of the public service, towards me.
Jesus said unto himIf thou desirest to be perfect, Withdraw! sell thy substance, and give to the destitute,and thou shalt have treasure in the heavens; and come! be following me.
And, being made perfect, became, to all them that obey him, Author of salvation age-abiding;
He that walketh without blame, and doeth what is right, and speaketh truth with his heart;
Hath not carried slander on his tongue, hath not done his friend a wrong, nor, a reproach, taken up against his neighbour;
