Wherefore, having purified your souls by obeying the truth, through the Spirit, to unfeigned brotherly love, love one another, from a pure heart, fervently:
Treat all men with respect: love the brotherhood: fear God: honor the king.
Finally, be all of one mind, sympathizing, lovers of the brethren, tender-hearted, courteous-
In like manner, let the wives be in subjection to their own husbands; that, indeed, if any obey not the word, they, without the word, may be won by the behavior of their wives,
And above all things, have fervent love to one another; for love will cover a multitude of sins.
Indeed, the time is come that punishment must begin at the house of God; and if it begin first at us, what the end of them who do not obey the gospel of God?
and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love:
For this is the message which you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
We know that we have passed away from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who loves not his brother, abides in death.
For this is his commandment, that we should believe on the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and should love one another as he gave us commandment.
Beloved, let us love one another; for love is from God: and every one who loves, has been begotten by God, and knows God.
No one has seen God, at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and his love is made perfect in us.
If any one say, Indeed I love God, and yet hate his brother, he is a liar: for he who loves not his brother, whom he has seen, how can he love God, whom he has not seen?
Nevertheless, I have against you that you have lost your first love.
