BE ye therefore imitators of God, as beloved children;
Be ye therefore perfect, as your Father who is in heaven is perfect.
but be ye kind one to another, full of sensibility, forgiving mutually, even as God in Christ hath forgiven you.
Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, long-suffering;
but as he who hath called you is holy, be ye holy also in all your conduct:
But as many as did receive him, on them he bestowed authority to become children of God, even on those who believe on his name:
But love your enemies, and do good and lend, hoping for nothing in return: and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Most High; for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the wicked.
BEHOLD, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God! therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
that ye may be the children of your Father who is in heaven: for he causeth his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and tendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
