But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.
Don’t pay back evil with evil. Be careful to do what everyone thinks is right. If possible, live in peace with everyone. Do that as much as you can.
My heart, O God, is steadfast, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music.
The Lord is holy and kind. Our God is full of tender love.
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, Who is in you, Whom you have received from God? You are not your own.
How great is the love the Father has given us so freely! Now we can be called children of God. And that’s what we really are! The world doesn’t know us because it didn’t know Him.
Anyone who believes in Christ is a new creation. The old is gone! The new has come!
