And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
And above all these things [put on] charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also [do] ye.

2 Corinthians 7:11
For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, [what] clearing of yourselves, yea, [what] indignation, yea, [what] fear, yea, [what] vehement desire, yea, [what] zeal, yea, [what] revenge! In all [things] ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.
That ye may with one mind [and] one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:

That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not [in] the oldness of the letter.
For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, [even] to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.
