love him, and we will come unto him, a Take heed therefore how ye hear: and make our abode with him. Heb for whosoever hath, to him shall be that loveth me not, keepeth not my given; and whosoever hath not, from him sayings: and the word which ye hear, shall be taken even that which he seem is not mine, but the Father's which eth to have. sent me, John xiv. 21-24. Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God, 1 Cor. vii. 19. But be ye doers of the word, and not hear ers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass; For he beholdeth himself and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed, Jam. i. 22-25.

d To them, who, by patient continuance in well doing, seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life, Rom. ii. 7.

and unto you that hear shall more be
given. For he that hath, to him shall
be given: and he that hath not, from
him shall be taken even that which
