    The last verse says give thanks at the remembrance of His Holiness. Unless we know holiness,we can’t give thanks for it. The Word says be ye Holy as He is Holy. It’s not something we do but what He does in us by His Spirit. He makes us Holy after the purging of the carnal nature we were born with, by the Holy Ghost.
