Romans, Chapter 12

12:1 I urge you+ therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your+ bodies, a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, [which is] your+ spiritual service.
12:2 And don't be fashioned according to this age: but be transformed by the renewing of the mind, that you+ may prove what the will of God is--that [which is] good and acceptable and perfect.
12:3 For I say, through the grace that was given me, to every man who is among you+, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but so to think as to think soberly, according to as God has dealt to each man a measure of faith.
12:4 For even as we have many members in one body, and all the members don't have the same activity:
12:5 so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and severally members one of another.
12:6 And having gifts differing according to the grace that was given to us, whether prophecy, [let us prophesy] according to the proportion of our faith;
12:7 or service, [let us give ourselves] to service; or he who teaches, to his teaching;
12:8 or he who exhorts, to his exhorting: he who gives, [let him do it] with liberality; he who rules, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
12:9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor that which is evil; stick to that which is good.
12:10 In love of the brothers be tenderly affectioned one to another; in honor preferring one another;
12:11 in diligence not slothful; fervent in spirit; serving as slaves to the Lord;
12:12 rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing steadfastly in prayer;
12:13 sharing to the necessities of the saints; given to the love for strangers.
12:14 Bless those who persecute you+; bless, and do not curse.
12:15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep.
12:16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Don't set your+ mind on high things, but condescend to things that are lowly. Don't be wise in your+ own conceits.
12:17 Render to no man evil for evil. Take thought for things honorable in the sight of all men.
12:18 If it is possible, as much as in you+ lies, be at peace with all men.
12:19 Don't avenge yourselves, beloved, but give place to the wrath [of God]: for it is written, Vengeance belongs to me; I will recompense, says the Lord.
12:20 But if your enemy hungers, feed him; if he thirsts, give him to drink: for in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.
12:21 Don't be overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
