Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing their babies in those days!
Those who linger over wine, those who go looking for mixed wine.
Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.
For those who sleep, sleep at night and those who get drunk are drunk at night.
For we are a sweet aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing –
Do good, O Lord, to those who are good, to the morally upright!
Deliver those being taken away to death, and hold back those slipping to the slaughter.
Those who stray morally will gain understanding;
bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat
then those in Judea must flee
Then those who are in Judea must flee
those with tears like those not weeping, those who rejoice like those not rejoicing, those who buy like those without possessions,
Look, the Lord takes notice of his loyal followers,
O Lord, do I not hate those who hate you, and despise those who oppose you?
The Lord takes delight in his faithful followers,
But we are not among those who shrink back and thus perish, but are among those who have faith and preserve their souls.
