Wherefore I also, having heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus,
For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but faith which worketh by love.
We give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, always in our prayers for you:
Incessantly remembering your work of faith, and labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, before our God and Father:
But as to brotherly love, ye need not that I write unto you; for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
We ought always to give thanks to God on your account, my brethren, as it is fit; because your faith increaseth greatly, and the love of every one of you towards each other aboundeth:
so do, and acquaint them that the end of that charge is charity, out of a pure heart, and a good conscience, and faith unfeigned:
with faith and love in Christ Jesus.
For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love, which ye have shewn to his name, by having ministred to the saints, and yet ministring.
Having therefore purified your souls by obedience to the truth, through the Spirit, to brotherly love unfeigned, love one another with a pure heart fervently:
But if any one, who hath the good things of the world, seeth his brother in want, and shutteth up his bowels from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
