Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the Lord.
Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
Blessed art thou, O Lord: teach me thy statutes.
Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
