Dedicated Service1 Therefore a I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to b present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice ▼
▼ Or well-pleasingacceptable to God, which is your ▼
▼ Or rationalspiritual service of worship. 2 And do not e be conformed to f this ▼
▼ Or ageworld, but be transformed by the h renewing of your mind, so that you may ▼
▼ Or approve, j prove what the will of God is, that which is good and ▼
▼ Or well-pleasingacceptable and perfect. 3 For through l the grace given to me I say to everyone among you m not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to n each a measure of faith. 4 For o just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, 5 so we, p who are many, are q one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. 6 Since we have gifts that r differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if s prophecy ▼
▼ Or in agreement with the faithaccording to the proportion of his faith; 7 if ▼
▼ Or office of service, v service, in his serving; or he who w teaches, in his teaching; 8 or he who x exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with ▼
▼ Or simplicity, z liberality; aa he who ▼
▼ Or gives aidleads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with ac cheerfulness. 9 Let ad love be without hypocrisy. ae Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be af devoted to one another in brotherly love; ▼
▼ Or outdo one another in showing honorgive preference to one another ah in honor; 11 not lagging behind in diligence ai fervent in spirit aj serving the Lord; 12 ak rejoicing in hope al persevering in tribulation am devoted to prayer, 13 an contributing to the needs of the ▼
▼ Or holy onessaints ▼
▼ Lit pursuing, aq practicing hospitality. 14 ar Bless those who persecute ▼
▼ Two early mss do not contain youyou; bless and do not curse. 15 at Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. 16 au Be of the same mind toward one another; av do not be haughty in mind, but ▼
▼ Or accommodate yourself to lowly thingsassociate with the lowly. ax Do not be wise in your own estimation. 17 ay Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. ▼
▼ Lit Take thought for, ba Respect what is right in the sight of all men. 18 If possible bb so far as it depends on you, bc be at peace with all men. 19 bd Never take your own revenge, beloved, but ▼
▼ Lit give a placeleave room for the wrath of God, for it is written bf “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 bg “But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
