But, fornication, and all impurity, or covetousness, let it not be named among youeven as becometh saints;
Peace, be pursuing, with all, and the obtaining of holiness,without which no one shall see the Lord:
But, according as he that hath called you is holy, do, ye yourselves, also become, holy in all manner of behaviour,
Inasmuch as it is writtenHoly shall ye be, because, I, am holy.
Who hath saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to the peculiar purpose and favourwhich was given to us in Christ Jesus before age-during times,
Seek ye right and not wrong, that ye nay live,that, so, Yahweh God of hosts, may be with you, as ye have said.
3 For, this, is a thing willed of God, your sanctification,that ye should abstain from unchastity,
4 That ye should know, each one of you, how, of his own vessel, to possess himself in sanctification and honour:
5 Not with a passion of coveting,just as even the nations who know not God,
6 Not over-reaching and defrauding, in the matter, his brother; because, an avenger, is the Lord, concerning all these things,even as we before told you, and solemnly called you to witness.
7 For God did not call us, with a permission of impurity, but, in sanctification.
According as he made choice of us, in him, before the founding of a world, that we might be holy and blameless in his presence; in love,
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.
The beginning of wisdom, is the reverence of Yahweh, and, the knowledge of the Holy, is understanding;
Search me, O GOD, and observe my heart, Try me, and observe my cares;
And see if there be any idol-way in me, and lead me in a way age-abiding.
But, thou, art holy, Who inhabitest the praises of Israel.
The same thing, esteem, in yourselves, which also, in Christ Jesus, ,
Ye, therefore, shall become, perfect: as, your heavenly Father, is perfect.
It is a snare to a man, that he should rashly cry Holy! and, after making vows, to reflect!
Know ye not that ye are a shrine a of God, and that the Spirit of God within you doth dwell?
Therefore shall ye be unto me, holy persons, for, holy, am, IYahweh,Therefore have I distinguished you from the peoples, that ye may be mine.
So will I Magnify myself and Hallow myself, and Make myself known. Before the eye of many nations,And they shall know that I, am Yahweh.
Having therefore, these, promises, beloved, let us purify ourselves from all pollution of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in fear of God.
Hallow them in the truth: Thine own word, is, truth:
And, no one having lit a lamp, covereth it up with a vessel, or, beneath a couch, putteth it; but, upon a lamp-stand, putteth it, that, they who come in, may see the light.
BETH. Wherewithal can a young man keep pure his way? By taking heed, according to thy word.
Whereas, now, having been freed from sin, and made servants unto God, ye have your fruit for sanctification and, the end, life age-abiding.
Bless, O my soul, Yahweh,And all that is within me, his holy Name;
Therefore shall ye hallow yourselves and be holy,Because IYahweh, am your God.
But I beseech you, brethren, to keep an eye upon them who are causing divisions and occasions of stumbling, aside from the teaching which, ye, have learned,and be turning away from them;
Unto the assembly of God which is in Corinth, sanctified in Christ Jesus, called saints,with all who call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, in every place,their Lord and ours:
21 And, you, who at one time were estranged and enemies in your mind in your wicked works, yet, now, hath he fully reconciled,
22 In his body of flesh, through means of his death, to present you holy and blameless and unaccusable before him,
23 If, at least, ye are abiding still in the faith, founded and firm, and not to be moved away from the hope of the glad-message which ye have heard, which hath been proclaimed in all creation which is under heaven,of which, I Paul, have become minister.
Sing ye to God, Make music of his Name,Lift up (a song), to him that rideth through the waste plains,Since Yah is his name, exult ye before him.
The father of the fatherless, And the advocate of widows, Is God, in his holy habitation.
In human fashion am I speaking, because of the weakness of your flesh;for, just as ye presented your members as servants unto impurity and unto lawlessness for lawlessness , so now, present ye your members as servants unto righteousness for sanctification.
There is none holy like Yahweh, Nay! there, is none, except Thee, Nor, is, there a rock, like our God.
Therefore will I hallow my great Name, that hath been profaned among the nations, which ye have profaned in their midst,-So shall the nations know that I am Yahweh Declareth My Lord, Yahweh, When I have hallowed myself in you, before their eyes.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, through the compassions of God, to present your bodies a living, holy sacrifice, unto God acceptable,your rational divine service;
For, thus, saith he that is high and lifted upInhabiting futurity, And, holy, is his name: A high and holy place, will I inhabit, Also with the crushed and lowly in spirit, To revive the spirit of the lowly, and To revive the heart of them who are crushed;
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.
