Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong,1 but always try to be kind to each other2 and to everyone else.
Be joyful always;317
give thanks in all circumstances,5 for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
Do not put out the Spirit's fire;620
do not treat prophecies7 with contempt.
Test everything.8 Hold on to the good.922
Avoid every kind of evil.
May God himself, the God of peace,10 sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul11 and body be kept blameless12 at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.1324
The one who calls14 you is faithful15 and he will do it.1625
Brothers, pray for us.17
