In business, not slothful, in spirit, fervent, to the Lord, doing service,
From Yahweh, are the steps of a man made firm, When, with his way, he is well pleased:
After Yahweh your God, shall ye walk And him, shall ye revere,And his commandments, shall ye observe. And unto his voice, shall ye hearken, And him, shall ye serve And unto him, shall ye cleave.
But, if it be, a vexation, in your eyes, to serve Yahweh, choose ye for yourselves, to-day, whom ye will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served, that were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye are dwelling,but, I and my house, will serve Yahweh.
Only, take ye diligent heed, to do the commandment and the law, which Moses the servant of Yahweh commanded youto love Yahweh your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and to cleave unto him,and to serve himwith all your heart, and with all your soul.
Neither be presenting your members as weapons of unrighteousness unto sin, but present yourselves unto God as though alive from among the dead, and your members as weapons of righteousness unto God;
For, ye, on a footing of freedom, were called, brethren,only, not your freedom into an occasion to the flesh, but, by means of your love, be serving one another;
Now, therefore, O Israel, what is, Yahweh thy God, asking of thee,but to revere Yahweh thy God to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve Yahweh thy God, with all thy heart, and with all thy soul:
to keep the commandments of Yahweh and his statutes, which I am commanding thee to-day,for thy good?
And, taking a seat, he addressed the twelve, and saith unto themIf anyone willeth to be, first, he shall be, least of all, and, minister of all.
If, with me, anyone be ministering, with me, let him be following; and, where, I, am, there, my minister also, shall be. If anyone, with me, be ministering, the Father, will honour him.
Every scripture, God-breathed, and profitableunto teaching, unto conviction, unto correction, unto the discipline that is in righteousness,
In order that, ready, may be the man, of God, unto every good work, being well-prepared.
So, then, my beloved brethren,become ye, steadfast, immovable, superabounding in the work of the Lord, at all times; knowing that, your toil, is not in vain in the Lord.
Not so, is it, among you,but, whosoever shall desire, among you, to become, great, shall be, your minister;
And, whosoever shall desire, among you, to be first, shall be, your servant:
Just as, the Son of Man, came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom instead of many.
No one, unto two masters, can be in service; for either, the one, he will hate, and, the other ,love, or, one, he will hold to, and, the other, despise: Ye cannot be in service, unto God, and, unto Riches.
His lord said unto himWell-done! good and faithful servant,Over a few things wast thou faithful, over many things, will I appoint thee: Enter into the joy of thy lord.
If then, I, have washed your feet, The Lord, and, The Teacher, ye also, ought to wash, one anothers, feet;
As free, yet, not as a cloak of vice, holding your freedom, but, as Gods servants.
How much rather shall the blood of the Christ, who through an age-abiding spirit offered himself unspotted unto God, purify our conscience from dead works, to the rendering of divine-service, unto a Living God?
For, even the Son of Man, came not to be ministered unto, but minister,and to give his life, a ransom instead of many.
Yahweh ransometh the soul of his servants, And none shall be held guilty, who seek refuge in him.
