Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, …

Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand. One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. …

To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
