Romans 12: 9-17 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is
good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one
another in showing honor. Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in
spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering,
persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints;
extend hospitality to strangers.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse
them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who
weep. Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty,
but associate with the lowly; do not claim to be wiser than
you are. Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought
for what is noble in the sight of all.
