1 How blessed is the man who does not walk
in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He will be like a tree firmly planted
by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.
Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,
But he who hates reproof is stupid.
15 "If your brother sins,
go and show him his fault in private;
if he listens to you, you have won your brother.
16 "But if he does not listen to you,
take one or two more with you,
so that BY THE MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE
WITNESSES EVERY FACT MAY BE CONFIRMED.
17 "If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church;
and if he refuses to listen even to the church,
let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.
1 Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass,
you who are spiritual,
restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness;
each one looking to yourself,
so that you too will not be tempted.
2 Bear one another's burdens,
and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.
3 For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing,
he deceives himself.
1 Thessalonians 5:14
We urge you, brethren, admonish the unruly,
encourage the fainthearted, help the weak,
be patient with everyone.
