And Jesus, answering, said unto them - Verily, I say unto you, If ye have faith, and do not doubt, not only, this of the fig-tree, shall ye do, - but, even if, unto this mountain, ye shall say, Be lifted up, and be cast into the sea, it shall be done.
And, though I morsel out all my goods, - and though I deliver up my body, that I may boast, and have not, love, I am profited, nothing.
If anyone doth not dearly love the Lord, let him be anathema that is, "accursed" : Maran atha that is, "The Lord, cometh" .
So he took up his parable and said, - The oracle of Balaam, son of Beer, Yea the oracle of the man, of opened eye;
Many, will say unto me, in, that, day, Lord! Lord! did we not, in thy name, prophesy, and, in thy name, cast, demons, out, - and, in thy name, many works of power, perform?
And, he, answering, said, Because, unto you, hath it been given, to get to know the sacred secrets of the kingdom of the heavens, - whereas, unto them, hath it not been given.
and, seeing one fig-tree by the way, he came up to it, and nothing, found he thereon, save leaves only, - and he saith unto it - No more, from thee, let fruit spring forth, unto times age-abiding, - and the fig-tree, instantly withered away.
And, answering, Jesus saith unto them - Have faith in God.

For I wish not, ye should be ignorant, brethren, of this sacred secret, lest within yourselves ye be presumptuous, that, a hardening in part, hath befallen Israel, until, the full measure of the nations, shall come in;
Now, unto him who hath power to establish you, according to my glad-message - even the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of a sacred secret, in age-past times kept silent,
Let a man, so, be reckoning of us, as officers of Christ, and stewards of sacred secrets of God.
The circumcision, is, nothing, and, the uncircumcision, is, nothing, - but keeping the commandments of God.
Concerning, then, the eating of idol-sacrifices, we are aware - that an idol is, nothing, in the world, and that, none, is God save one.
For, unto one, indeed, through the Spirit, is given, a word of wisdom, but, unto another, a word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit; -

Although with the tongues of men, I be speaking, and of messengers, and have not, love, I have become resounding brass, or a clanging cymbal;
Pursue love; nevertheless be envious of the spiritual gifts, - and, rather, that ye may be prophesying.

So, then, my brethren, - be zealous to prophesy, and do not forbid, to be speaking with tongues;
I have become foolish, - ye, compelled me: - I, in fact, ought, by you, to have been commended; for, not a whit, have I come behind the exceeding overmuch apostles, - even if I am nothing:
I say, moreover - by Spirit, be walking, and, fleshly coveting, ye will in nowise fulfil;
But, the fruit of the Spirit, is - love, joy, peace, long-suffering, graciousness, goodness, faithfulness,

And on behalf of me; - that, unto me, may be given discourse in the opening of my mouth, with freedom of utterance, to make known the sacred secret of the glad-message
The sacred secret which had been hidden away from the ages and from the generations, but, now, hath been made manifest unto his saints -

He that doth not love, doth not understand God, because, God, is, love.
If one should say, I love God, and should be hating, his brother, false, is he; for, he that doth not love his brother, whom he hath seen, God, whom he hath not seen, he cannot love!
