Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:1 - I call upon you, therefore, brethren, through the compassions of God, to present your bodies a sacrifice -- living, sanctified, acceptable to God -- your intelligent service;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:2 - and be not conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, for your proving what is the will of God -- the good, and acceptable, and perfect.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:3 - For I say, through the grace that was given to me, to every one who is among you, not to think above what it behoveth to think; but to think so as to think wisely, as to each God did deal a measure of faith,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:4 - for as in one body we have many members, and all the members have not the same office,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:5 - so we, the many, one body are in Christ, and members each one of one another.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:6 - And having gifts, different according to the grace that was given to us; whether prophecy -- 'According to the proportion of faith!'
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:7 - or ministration -- 'In the ministration!' or he who is teaching -- 'In the teaching!'
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:8 - or he who is exhorting -- 'In the exhortation!' he who is sharing -- 'In simplicity!' he who is leading -- 'In diligence?' he who is doing kindness -- 'In cheerfulness.'
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:9 - The love unfeigned: abhorring the evil; cleaving to the good;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:10 - in the love of brethren, to one another kindly affectioned: in the honour going before one another;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:11 - in the diligence not slothful; in the spirit fervent; the Lord serving;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:12 - in the hope rejoicing; in the tribulation enduring; in the prayer persevering;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:13 - to the necessities of the saints communicating; the hospitality pursuing.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:14 - Bless those persecuting you; bless, and curse not;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:15 - to rejoice with the rejoicing, and to weep with the weeping,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:16 - of the same mind one toward another, not minding the high things, but with the lowly going along; become not wise in your own conceit;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:17 - giving back to no one evil for evil; providing right things before all men.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:18 - If possible -- so far as in you -- with all men being in peace;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:19 - not avenging yourselves, beloved, but give place to the wrath, for it hath been written, 'Vengeance is Mine,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:20 - I will recompense again, saith the Lord;' if, then, thine enemy doth hunger, feed him; if he doth thirst, give him drink; for this doing, coals of fire thou shalt heap upon his head;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 12:21 - Be not overcome by the evil, but overcome, in the good, the evil.
