1898 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)
1 God's mercies must move us to please God. 3 No man must think too well of himself, 6 but attend, every one, on that calling wherein he is placed. 9 Love, and many other duties, are required of us. 19 Revenge is specially forbidden.
12:1 ¶ I call upon you, therefore, brethren, through the compassions of God, to present your bodies a sacrificeliving, sanctified, acceptable to Godyour intelligent service;
12:2 and be not conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, for your proving what [is] the will of Godthe good, and acceptable, and perfect.
12:3 For I say, through the grace that was given to me, to every one who is among you, not to think above what it behoveth to think; but to think so as to think wisely, as to each God did deal a measure of faith,
12:4 for as in one body we have many members, and all the members have not the same office,
12:5 so we, the many, one body are in Christ, and members each one of one another.
12:6 And having gifts, different according to the grace that was given to us; whether prophecy'According to the proportion of faith!'
12:7 or ministration'In the ministration!' or he who is teaching'In the teaching!'
12:8 or he who is exhorting'In the exhortation!' he who is sharing'In simplicity!' he who is leading'In diligence?' he who is doing kindness'In cheerfulness.'
12:9 The love unfeigned: abhorring the evil; cleaving to the good;
12:10 in the love of brethren, to one another kindly affectioned: in the honour going before one another;
12:11 in the diligence not slothful; in the spirit fervent; the Lord serving;
12:12 in the hope rejoicing; in the tribulation enduring; in the prayer persevering;
12:13 to the necessities of the saints communicating; the hospitality pursuing.
12:14 Bless those persecuting you; bless, and curse not;
12:15 to rejoice with the rejoicing, and to weep with the weeping,
12:16 of the same mind one toward another, not minding the high things, but with the lowly going along; become not wise in your own conceit;
12:17 giving back to no one evil for evil; providing right things before all men.
12:18 If possibleso far as in youwith all men being in peace;
12:19 not avenging yourselves, beloved, but give place to the wrath, for it hath been written, 'Vengeance [is] Mine,
12:20 I will recompense again, saith the Lord;' if, then, thine enemy doth hunger, feed him; if he doth thirst, give him drink; for this doing, coals of fire thou shalt heap upon his head;
12:21 Be not overcome by the evil, but overcome, in the good, the evil.
