so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all agree and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment.
For you were called to freedom, brethren; only [do] not [turn] your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
Each of us is to please his neighbor for his good, to his edification.
[Be] devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor;
[This] you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak [and] slow to anger;
"For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
"But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God.
Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
But the lovingkindness of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children's children,
To those who keep His covenant And remember His precepts to do them.
In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can [mere] man do to me?
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of [the] archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.
And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them,
and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be [any] death; there will no longer be [any] mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away."
so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without [reference to] sin, to those who eagerly await Him.
A gentle answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.
"Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O LORD, and You exalt Yourself as head over all.
Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.
so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; [and] that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.
Before the mountains were born Or You gave birth to the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God.
You turn man back into dust And say, "Return, O children of men."
For a thousand years in Your sight Are like yesterday when it passes by, Or [as] a watch in the night.
The Lord GOD is my strength, And He has made my feet like hinds' [feet], And makes me walk on my high places. For the choir director, on my stringed instruments.
