let your forbearance be known to all men; the Lord is near;
And the fruit of the Spirit is: Love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith,
meekness, temperance: against such there is no law;
Put on, therefore, as choice ones of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humble-mindedness, meekness, long-suffering,
Let brotherly love remain;
of the hospitality be not forgetful, for through this unawares certain did entertain messengers;
no longer, therefore, may we judge one another, but this judge you rather, not to put a stumbling-stone before the brother, or an offence.
in wisdom walk you toward those without, the time forestalling;
your word always in grace -- with salt being seasoned -- to know how it behooveth you to answer each one.
therefore, then, as we have opportunity, may we work the good to all, and especially unto those of the household of the faith.
verily, verily, I say to you, he who is receiving whomsoever I may send, does receive me; and he who is receiving me, does receive Him who sent me.'
