LOVE.

Walk in love. The Lord make you to in.. crease and abound in love one towards another, and towards all men, even as we do towards

you.

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was inanifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfecter in us. He that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

If a man sav. I love God, and hatheth his bruther, he is a liar: for he that loveth not liis Brother, whoin lie hath seen, how can he love Gor!, sen be hath not seen ?

This is one tiat we valk after his comma:dSpinnfis,

By love serve one another. Let love be without dissimulation. Love covereth all sins.

MARRIAGE. The Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life: and man became a living soul. And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone : I will make him an help meet for him. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fail upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof. And the rib, which the Lord God liad taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman ; because she was taken out of man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave urto his wife; and they shall be one flesh.

Jesus said unto them: What did Moses command you ? And they said, Moses suffered to write a bili of divorceinent, and to put her away. And Jesus answered and said unto them. For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept: but from the beginning of the creation God inade them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and cleave to lis wife: and they twain shall be one flesh : so then they are no more twain, but one lesh. What therefore God hath joined ta. gether', let no man put asunder.

The nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum, saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die. Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word thať"Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way. And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.
