Have I not commanded you?
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork.
Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.
But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach):
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
