I put this in human terms because you are weak in your natural selves.
Just as you used to offer the parts of your body in slavery to impurity
and to ever-increasing wickedness,
so now offer them in slavery to righteousness leading to holiness.

Arise, cry out in the night,
as the watches of the night begin;

in the presence of the Lord.
Lift up your hands to him
for the lives of your children,
who faint from hunger
at the head of every street.

God did this so that men would seek him
and perhaps reach out for him and find him,
though he is not far from each one of us.
‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’
As some of your own poets have said,
‘We are his offspring.’
