Ye are the salt of the earth; and if the salt may lose its savor, in what shall it be salted? It is yet without value, except having been cast out, to be trodden under feet by the people. Ye are the light of the world. A city sitting on a mountain is unable to be hidden. Neither do they light a candle, and place it under a bushel, but on the candlestick; and it shineth to all who are in the house. read more.
Let your light so shine before the people, in order that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in the heavens.

And he will go before Him in the spirit and Power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient unto the understanding of the righteous, to prepare a people made ready for the Lord.

And likewise James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were companions to Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, Fear not; from now you shall be catching men.




For you see your calling, brethren, that there are not many wise according to the flesh, not many influential, not many high-born: but God has chosen the foolish things of the world, that he may confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world, that he may confound the strong; and God has chosen the base-born of the world, and those of no reputation, the things which are not, that He may set at nought the things which are, read more.
in order that no flesh can boast in the sight of God.


according to the gospel of the glory of the blessed God, with which I am intrusted.







And if certain ones of the branches were broken off, and you being a wild olive-tree are grafted in among them, and have become a partaker of the root of the fatness of the olive-tree; boast not against the branches: but if you boast, you are not bearing the root, but the root you. Then you will say, The branches were broken off, that I may be grafted in. read more.
Beautifully; they were broken off by unbelief, but you stand by faith, Think not high things, but fear. For if God spared not the natural branches, neither will he spare you.

For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with the wisdom of speech, in order that the cross of Christ may not be made of none effect. For the word of the cross is foolishness indeed to those who are lost; but to those who are saved it is the power of God. For it has been written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nought the understanding of the intelligent. read more.
Where is the wise man? where is the scribe? where is the investigator of this age? has not God rendered the wisdom of the world foolishness? For since in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, God was pleased through the foolishness of preaching to save those who believe. Since indeed the Jews ask for miracles, and the Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ having been crucified, to the Jews indeed a stumbling block, and to the Gentiles foolishness; but to you who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For you see your calling, brethren, that there are not many wise according to the flesh, not many influential, not many high-born: but God has chosen the foolish things of the world, that he may confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world, that he may confound the strong; and God has chosen the base-born of the world, and those of no reputation, the things which are not, that He may set at nought the things which are, in order that no flesh can boast in the sight of God. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God was made unto us wisdom, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption: in order that, as it has been written, Let him that glorieth glory in the Lord.

But, brethren, I have transferred these things to myself and Apollos on your account: that you may learn among us not to be wise above what is written; in order that you may not be puffed up one in behalf of one against another. For who judges you? and what have you which you did not receive. But if indeed you received it, why do you boast, as not having received it?

For we are not bold to number or compare ourselves with certain ones of those who recommend themselves: but they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves to themselves, are not wise. But we will not boast in things without measure, but according to the measure of the rule which measure God has measured to us, to reach even unto you. For not as not reaching unto you do we stretch ourselves, for we have advanced in the gospel of Christ even unto you: read more.
and not boasting in things without measure, in the labors of others, but having hope of your faith increasing among you, to be magnified according to our rule exceedingly, to preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, not to glory according to the rule of others in things made ready. But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord; for he that commends himself is not approved, but whom the Lord commends.

For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, in order that no one may boast:











Then Jesus said unto them, Truly, truly, I say unto you, Unless you may eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. The one eating my flesh and drinking my blood has eternal life; and I will raise him up in the last day. For my flesh is the true food, and my blood is the true drink. read more.
The one eating my flesh and drinking my blood abides in me, and I in him.

My little children, I write these things to you, in order that you may not sin. And if any one may sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: he is the expiator for our sins: and not ours only, but indeed for the whole world. And in this we know that we have known him, if we are keeping his commandments. read more.
The one saying, I have known him, and keeping not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whosoever shall keep his word, truly the divine love of God has been made perfect in him. In this we know that we are in him. The one saying that he abides in him ought himself so to walk about, as he also did walk about.

Philip says to Him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus says to Him, Am I so long time with you, and hast thou not known me, Philip? The one having seen me hath seen the Father: how do you say, Show us the Father? Dost thou not believe, that I am in the Father, and the Father is in me? The words which I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father who abideth in me doeth His own works. read more.
Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me; or if not, believe for the sake of the works themselves. Truly, truly, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, shall also do the works which I am doing; and shall do greater works than these: because I go to the Father: and whatsoever you may ask in my name, I will do it, in order that the rather may be glorified in the Son. If you may ask anything of me in my name, I will do it. If you love me, keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter, that He may be with you always, the Spirit of truth: which the world is not able to receive, because it does not see Him, nor know Him: you know Him: because He abideth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you orphans: I am coming to you. Vet a little while, and the world sees me no more; but you see me: because I live, you shall live also. In that day you shall know that I am in the Father, you in me, and I in you.

For you see your calling, brethren, that there are not many wise according to the flesh, not many influential, not many high-born: but God has chosen the foolish things of the world, that he may confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world, that he may confound the strong; and God has chosen the base-born of the world, and those of no reputation, the things which are not, that He may set at nought the things which are, read more.
in order that no flesh can boast in the sight of God. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God was made unto us wisdom, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption:

See that no one shall be deceiving you through philosophy and empty delusion, according to the tradition of men, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Christ, because in him dwells all the fulness of the Godhead bodily, and you are complete in him, who is the head of all government and authority: read more.
in whom you are also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of depravity, in the circumcision of Christ; having been buried with him in baptism, in which you are also raised by the faith of the operation of God, who raised him from the dead:

Beloved, if our heart may not condemn us, we have boldness toward God: and whatsoever we may ask, we receive from him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things pleasing before him. And this is his commandment, that we may believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and we may love one another with divine love, as he has given to us commandment. read more.
And the one keeping his commandments abides in him, and he in him; and in this we know that he abides in us, he has given us of his Spirit.

We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in the evil one. But we know that the Son of God has come and has given unto us intelligence, that we know the truth. And we are in the true one, in his Son Jesus Christ; he is the true God, and eternal life.

And I, brethren, having come unto you, came not in the excellency of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming unto you the testimony of God. For I determine to know nothing among you, except Jesus Christ, and Him having been crucified. I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. read more.
And my speech and my preaching were not in the persuasive words of wisdom, but in the demonstration of the Spirit and the power: in order that your faith may not be in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. But we speak wisdom among the perfect: not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nought: but we speak the wisdom of God having been hidden in a mystery, which God predestinated before the ages unto our glory: which no one of the princes of this age knew; for if they had known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But, as has been written, the things which eye has not seen, and ear has not heard, and has not entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. But God has revealed them to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who of men knows the things of man, except the spirit of the man which is in him? so indeed no one knows the things of God, except the Spirit of God. But we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God; in order that we may know the things which have been graciously given unto us from God. Which things indeed we speak, not in the teachable words of human wisdom, but in the teachable words of the Spirit, expounding spiritual things to spiritual people. But the intellectual man receives not the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness unto him; and he is not able to know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
