For the saving grace of God was manifested to all men,
teaching us, that denying the impiety and the worldly desires, soberly and righteously and piously we may live in the present age,
And the fruit of the Spirit is: Love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith,
meekness, temperance: against such there is no law;
but I chastise my body, and bring it into servitude, lest by any means, having preached to others -- I myself may become disapproved.
for God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind;
and every one who is striving, is in all things temperate; these, indeed, then, that a corruptible crown they may receive, but we an incorruptible;
so, then, we may not sleep as also the others, but watch and be sober,
and be not conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, for your proving what is the will of God -- the good, and acceptable, and perfect.
So then, my brethren beloved, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger,
5 And this same also -- all diligence having brought in besides, superadd in your faith the worthiness, and in the worthiness the knowledge,
6 and in the knowledge the temperance, and in the temperance the endurance, and in the endurance the piety,
7 and in the piety the brotherly kindness, and in the brotherly kindness the love;
because we have not the wrestling with blood and flesh, but with the principalities, with the authorities, with the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, with the spiritual things of the evil in the heavenly places;
See to yourselves that you may not lose the things that we wrought, but a full reward may receive;
No temptation has taken you -- except human; and God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above what you are able, but He will make, with the temptation, also the outlet, for your being able to bear it.
