Then said the princes of the Philistines, What [do] these Hebrews [here]?
If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy [are ye]; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or [as] a thief, . . . or as a busybody in other men’s matters.
Let not . . . your good be evil spoken of.–Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles.
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? . . . Ye are the temple of the living God. . . . wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing].
Ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.
