||Adulterers and adulteresses! have ye not known that friendship of the world is enmity with God? whoever, then, may counsel to be a friend of the world, an enemy of God he is set.
||Do ye think that emptily the Writing saith, `To envy earnestly desireth the spirit that did dwell in us,'
||and greater grace he doth give, wherefore he saith, `God against proud ones doth set Himself up, and to lowly ones He doth give grace?'
||be subject, then, to God; stand up against the devil, and he will flee from you;
||draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you; cleanse hands, ye sinners! and purify hearts, ye two-souled!
||be exceeding afflicted, and mourn, and weep, let your laughter to mourning be turned, and the joy to heaviness;
||be made low before the Lord, and He shall exalt you.
||Speak not one against another, brethren; he who is speaking against a brother, and is judging his brother, doth speak against law, and doth judge law, and if law thou dost judge, thou art not a doer of law but a judge;
||one is the lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy; thou -- who art thou that dost judge the other?
