Pay everyone what he is owed: if you owe the tax-collector, pay your taxes; if you owe the revenue-collector, pay revenue; if you owe someone respect, pay him respect; if you owe someone honor, pay him honor.
Don't owe anyone anything - except to love one another; for whoever loves his fellow human being has fulfilled Torah.
For the commandments, "Don't commit adultery," "Don't murder," "Don't steal," "Don't covet,"g and any others are summed up in this one rule: "Love your neighbor as yourself."h
Love does not do harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fullness of Torah.
Besides all this, you know at what point of history we stand; so it is high time for you to rouse yourselves from sleep; for the final deliverance is nearer than when we first came to trust.
The night is almost over, the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and arm ourselves with the weapons of light.
Let us live properly, as people do in the daytime - not partying and getting drunk, not engaging in sexual immorality and other excesses, not quarrelling and being jealous.
Instead, clothe yourselves with the Lord Yeshua the Messiah; and don't waste your time thinking about how to provide for the sinful desires of your old nature.
