7 Then the peace of God that exceeds all understanding will keep your hearts and minds safe in Christ Jesus. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 From now on, brothers and sisters, if anything is excellent and if anything is admirable, focus your thoughts on these things: all that is true, all that is holy, all that is just, all that is pure, all that is lovely, and all that is worthy of praise. 8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.
9 Practice these things: whatever you learned, received, heard, or saw in us. The God of peace will be with you. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me--put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
