Page 26 - Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.
Page 8 - God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked ; that there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it ; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
Page 12 - Now I beseech you, brethren-, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

Page 7 - But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace...
Page 8 - For He is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; 16 having abolished in His flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in Himself of twain one new man, so making peace; ™ and that He might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby; 17 and came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
