“This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
This is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor;
and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.
and may the Lord cause you to increase and abound in love for one another, and for all people, just as we also do for you;
Now as to the love of the brethren, you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another;
We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brethren, as is only fitting, because your faith is greatly enlarged, and the love of each one of you toward one another grows ever greater;
Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart,
To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit;
Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.
Beloved, I am not writing a new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning; the old commandment is the word which you have heard.
For this is the message which you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another;
And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God should love his brother also.
