Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, writes:
'For thus says the Lord of hosts:'
"Just as it determined to punish you when your fathers provoked me to wrath,"
'Says the Lord of hosts.'
"And I would not relent, so in these days I am determined to do good
to Jerusalem and to the house of Judah.
These are the things you shall do: Speak every man the truth to his neighbor;
Give judgment in your gates for truth, justice, and peace;
Let none of you think evil in your heart against your neighbor;
And do not love a false oath.
For all these are things that I hate,"
'Says the Lord.'
Love is the language of the church iff* those in the church are in Christ.
*In mathematics, the notation "iff" is understood to mean, "if and only if."
