12:1  Obsecro [itaque] vos fratres per misericordiam Dei ut exhibeatis corpora vestra
hostiam viventis sanctam Deo placentem rationabile obsequium vestrum.
12:2  Et nolite conformari huic saeculo sed reformamini in novitate sensus vestry,
ut probetis quae sit voluntas Dei bona et bene placens et perfecta.

12:1  I beseech you [therefore], brethren, by the mercy of God, that you present your bodies
a living sacrifice, holy, pleasing unto God, your reasonable service.
12:2  And be not conformed to this world: but be reformed in the newness of your mind,
that you may prove what is the good and well pleasing and perfect will of God.
