4. By the Living of a Life of the Highest Virtues
9 1Let alove be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; bcling to what is good.
10 aLove one another warmly in brotherly love; take the lead in showing honor one to another.
11 Do not be slothful in zeal, but be 1aburning in spirit, 2bserving the Lord.
12 Rejoice in hope; aendure in tribulation; bpersevere in prayer.
13 1aContribute to the needs of the saints; pursue bhospitality.
14 1aBless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
15 1Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep.
16 Be of the asame mind toward one another, not bsetting your mind on the high things but going along with the 1lowly; do not be cwise in yourselves.
17 aRepay no one evil for evil; 1btake forethought for things honorable in the sight of all men.
18 If possible, as far as it depends on you, live in apeace with all men.
19 Do not 1avenge yourselves, beloved, but give place to the wrath of God, for it is written, a"Vengeance is Mine, I will repay, says the Lord.''
20 aBut "if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in doing this you will heap coals of fire upon his head.''
21 Do not be conquered by evil, but conquer evil with good.
