1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your a a living b, holy, c unto God, which is your reasonable d.
2 And be not conformed to this a: but be ye b by the c of your d, that ye may e what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, f of God.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to a of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think b, according as c hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same a:
5 So we, being many, are a b in Christ, and every one members one of another.
6 Having then gifts differing according to the a that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of b;
7 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with a.
9 Let love be a. Abhor that which is b; cleave to that which is good.
10 Be kindly a one to another with b c; in honour preferring one another;
11 Not slothful in a; b in spirit; serving the Lord;
12 Rejoicing in hope; a in b; c prayer;
13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to a.
14 Bless them which a you: bless, and b not.
15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and a with them that weep.
16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but a to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own b.
17 a to no man b for evil. Provide things c in the d of all men.
18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live a with all men.
19 Dearly beloved, a not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
20 Therefore if thine a hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
21 Be not overcome of evil, but a evil with good.
