Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.
Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.
Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.
If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for yielding pacifieth great offences.
