1Worthily then should you live — a life worthy so exalted a calling as this. In my bonds I call on you to remember it, and whilst your calling is so exalted, 2for that very reason to be humble and gentle, to be patient, not hard on one another, but to love. 3Peace is that bond which unites us in the unity of the one Spirit — 4see that this oneness is retained, one body, one spirit, and only one hope whereby we all were called — 5one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6one God and Father of all, the same being over all, through all and in all. 7That is our condition in the Christ, this absolute oneness, nevertheless severally to each individual is his own special grace allotted, and that grace is given to each one according to his individual measure of the Christ's gift . . . .
