draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you; cleanse hands, ye sinners! and purify hearts, ye two-souled!
be exceeding afflicted, and mourn, and weep, let your laughter to mourning be turned, and the joy to heaviness;
be made low before the Lord, and He shall exalt you.
Speak not one against another, brethren; he who is speaking against a brother, and is judging his brother, doth speak against law, and doth judge law, and if law thou dost judge, thou art not a doer of law but a judge;
one is the lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy; thou -- who art thou that dost judge the other?
Go, now, ye who are saying, `To-day and to-morrow we will go on to such a city, and will pass there one year, and traffic, and make gain;'
who do not know the thing of the morrow; for what is your life? for it is a vapour that is appearing for a little, and then is vanishing;
instead of your saying, `If the Lord may will, we shall live, and do this or that;'
and now ye glory in your pride; all such glorying is evil;
to him, then, knowing to do good, and not doing, sin it is to him.
