Enter you in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads to life, and few there be that find it.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?As it is written, For your sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
And he said to me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
Charity suffers long, and is kind; charity envies not; charity braggs not itself, is not puffed up,Does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil; Rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.Charity never fails: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
The grass wither, the flower fades: because the spirit of the LORD blows on it: surely the people is grass.The grass wither, the flower fades: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
