“He meatanga na te Atua, kia whakaaturia ki a ratou te taonga nui o te kororia o tenei mea ngaro ki roto ki nga Tauiwi, ara a te Karaiti i roto i a koutou, e tumanako atu ai ki te kororia: E kauwhautia nei e matou, me te whakatupato i nga tangata katoa, me te whakaako i nga tangata katoa i runga i nga whakaaro mohio katoa, kia tapaea atu ai e matou nga tangata katoa, he mea tino tika i roto i a Karaiti Ihu:” (Colossians 1:27-28)
