“12 Therefore, as ‘God’s’ [ha-‘Elohiyms’: the-Magistrates’, the-Angels’ (ha-malik: the-messengers of ‘elohiym), etc..] chosen ones, ‘holy’ [kadosh: consecrated, dedicated, etc..] and ‘loved’ [chemda: precious, goodly, etc..], clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness,[a] and patience”
