For, Yahweh, loveth justice, and will not forsake his men of lovingkindness, Unto times age-abiding, have the perverse been destroyed,and the seed of the lawless, been cut off.
And, in doing that which is honourable, let us not be fainthearted; for, in due season, we shall reap, if we faint not.
See that none, evil for evil, unto any, do render: but, evermore, what is good, be pursuing, towards one another, and towards all:
The eyes of Yahweh, are towards the righteous, And, his ears, towards their cry for help:
Who will render unto each one according to his works:
For the rest, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are dignified, whatsoever things are righteous, whatsoever things are chaste, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report,if there be any virtue, and if any praise, the same, be taking into account;
Him who knew not sin, in our behalf, he made to be, sin, that we might become Gods righteousness in him.
With all my heart, have I sought thee, Suffer me not to be led astray from thy commandments.
Be not deceiving yourselves! God, is not to be mocked; for, whatsoever a man soweth, the same, shall he also reap,
For , if ye even do good unto them that do good unto you, what sort of thanks are there for you? Even sinners, the same, are doing.
Be openly confessing, therefore, one to another, your sins, and be praying in each others behalf,that ye may be healed. Much availeth, the supplication of a righteous man, when it is energised:
For the favour of God, bringing salvation for all men, hath shone forth,
Putting us under disciplinein order that,denying ourselves of ungodliness and worldly covetings, in a soberminded and righteous and godly manner, we should live, in the present age,
BOOK THE FIRST How happy the man, who hath not walked in the counsel of the lawless,and, in the way of sinners, hath not stood, and, in the seat of scoffers, hath not sat;
The treasures of lawlessness, do not profit, but, righteousness, delivereth from death.
But be seeking first, the kingdom and its righteousness,and, all these things, shall be added unto you.
And, in harvest of righteousness, with peace, is sown by them that make peace.
Every way of a man, may be right in his own eyes, but, he that testeth hearts, is Yahweh.
Draw near unto God, and he will draw near unto you. Cleanse hands, sinners! Chasten hearts, double souls!
To do righteousness and justice, is more choice to Yahweh than sacrifice.
Surely, unto times age-abiding, shall he not be shaken, In remembrance, age-abiding, shall the righteous one remain;
Nevertheless, even if ye should suffer for righteousness sake, happy ! Their fear, however, do not fear, neither be troubled;
He that pursueth righteousness and lovingkindness, shall find life, righteousness and honour.
The lawless man, earneth the wages of falsehood, but, he that soweth righteousness, hath the reward of fidelity.
But, thou, O man of God! from these things, flee! and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, meekness;
It is a snare to a man, that he should rashly cry Holy! and, after making vows, to reflect!
