How God Wants Us To Treat One Another

As promised, here’s the info from last night’s meeting:

The English phrase one another is expressed as a single word in Greek: the reflexive pronoun allelous. By finding each place that allelous is used in the New Testament, we can quickly survey passages that teach us how we should relate to one another. The following list is representative but not exhaustive.

Greet One Another: 2 Corinthians 13:12
Show Hospitality To One Another: 1 Peter 4:9
Honor One Another: Romans 12:10
Live In Harmony With One Another: Romans 12:16
Serve One Another: Galatians 5:13–14
Comfort One Another: 2 Corinthians 1:3–4
Encourage One Another: Hebrews 3:12–13
Motivate One Another: Hebrews 10:24–25
Teach And Admonish One Another: Colossians 3:16
Be Forbearing With One Another: Ephesians 4:1–3
Forgive One Another: Colossians 3:13
Confess Sin To One Another: James 5:16
Bear One Anothers Burdens: Galatians 6:2
Love One Another: 1 John 4:7–21

and here are some additional resources we didn’t cover last night

Do a search for every ‘one another’ verse in the NIV New Testament

Do a search for every ‘each other’ verse in the NIV New Testament

Also see the article: “One Another” Commands of Scripture, which is dull yet informative.

  1. I have a question concerning the “one another” and “each other” passages on this site.
    Which Bible version is being used?

    Thank you


  2. Those are not actually the translations of the passages; they are descriptive titles inspired by the content. Heb 10:24–25, for example, is a bit long to include in a list like this, so I summarized the concept as “motivate one another”.

    I may have gotten this list from somewhere else and slightly adapted it. I can’t remember.
