Put on, therefore, as men chosen of God, holy and beloved, tender affections of compassion, graciousness, lowliness of mind, meekness, long-suffering,
The favour of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.

Beloved! let us be loving one another; because, love, is, of God, and, whosoever loveth, of God, hath been born, and is getting to understand God:
Upon God, hath no one, at any time, gazed: If we love one another, God, in us, abideth, and, his love, hath been perfected within us.

And the messenger said unto them - Be not afraid! For lo! I bring you good tidings of a great joy, the which shall be for all the people:
And lo! there was, a man, in Jerusalem, whose name, was Symeon; and, this man, was righteous and devout, awaiting the consolation of Israel, and Holy Spirit was upon him;
Peace, I leave with you, My own peace, give, I, unto you, - Not as, the world, giveth, give, I, unto you: - Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
And, ye, therefore, now, indeed have grief; but, again, will I see you, and your heart shall rejoice, - and, your joy, no one, shall force from you.

In whom, ye also - hearing the word of the truth, the glad-message of your salvation, - in whom also believing, - were sealed with the Spirit of the promise, the Holy Spirit ,
