NLTNew Living Translation
9Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. 10Love each other with genuine affection,#12:10 Greek with brotherly love. and take delight in honoring each other. 11Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically.#12:11 Or but serve the Lord with a zealous spirit; or but let the Spirit excite you as you serve the Lord. 12Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. 13When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.
