But concerning love of the brethren ye have no need that one write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another;
for indeed ye do it toward all the brethren that are in all Macedonia. But we exhort you, brethren, that ye abound more and more;
and in (your) godliness brotherly kindness; and in (your) brotherly kindness love.

No man hath beheld God at any time: if we love one another, God abideth in us, and his love is perfected in us:
