||I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,
||That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.
||For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:
||Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;
||Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.
