Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
The Lord is righteous in all his ways
and kind in all his works.

The Lord is good,
a stronghold in the day of trouble;
he knows those who take refuge in him.

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
Thus says the Lord:
Stand by the roads, and look,
and ask for the ancient paths,
where the good way is; and walk in it,
and find rest for your souls.
But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’
Remember your mercy, O Lord, and your steadfast love,
for they have been from of old.
Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
according to your steadfast love remember me,
for the sake of your goodness, O Lord!
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.
Turn away from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.
Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.
Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good?
Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works.

and equity, every good path.
Who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.
Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living!
