I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the compassions of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, [which is] your intelligent service.
And be not conformed a to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of [your] mind, that ye may prove b what [is] the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
For I say, through the grace which has been given to me, to every one that is among you, not to have high thoughts above what he should think; but to think so as to be wise, c as God has dealt to each a measure of faith.
For, as in one body we have many members, but all the members have not the same office;
thus we, [being] many, are one body in Christ, and each one members one of the other.
But having different gifts, according to the grace which has been given to us, whether [it be] prophecy, [let us prophesy] according to the proportion of faith;
or service, [let us occupy ourselves] in service; or he that teaches, in teaching;
or he that exhorts, in exhortation; he that gives, in simplicity; d he that leads, with diligence; he that shews mercy, with cheerfulness.
Let love be unfeigned; abhorring evil; cleaving to good:
as to brotherly love, kindly affectioned towards one another: as to honour, each taking the lead in paying it e to the other:
