7But the end of all things is at hand : be yethereforesober , andwatchuntoprayer.8Andabove all thingshaveferventcharityamongyourselves:forcharity shall cover the multitude of sins.9
Use hospitality one to anotherwithoutgrudging.10As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another , asgoodstewards of the manifoldgrace of God.11
If any manspeak , let him speak as the oracles of God; if any manminister , let him do it asof the abilitywhichGodgiveth : thatGodin all things may be glorifiedthroughJesusChrist, to whombepraiseanddominionforever and ever.Amen.12Beloved, think itnotstrange concerning the fiery trialwhichistotryyou,as though some strange thinghappened unto you:13Butrejoice , inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ'ssufferings;that,whenhisglory shall be revealed, ye may be gladalso with exceeding joy .
14If ye be reproachedfor the name of Christ,happy are ye; for the spirit of gloryand of Godrestethuponyou:ontheirpart he is evil spoken of , buton your part he is glorified .
15Butletnoneofyousufferas a murderer,or as a thief,or as an evildoer,oras a busybody in other men's matters.16Yetif any man suffer as a Christian, let himnot be ashamed ; but let him glorifyGodonthisbehalf.17For the time is come that judgment must beginat the house of God:andif it first begin atus,what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
