30. I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 2 COR. 6:18.
Praise to the goodness of the Lord,
Who rules his people by his Word;
And there, as strong as his decreed,
He sets his kindest promises.
Dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2 COR. 7:1.
