passage: Ephes 5:9-5:19
For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness
and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no
fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove
them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done
of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest
by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Wherefore he
saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ
shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as
fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the
Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled
with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual
songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
passage: Luke 12:16-12:21
And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich
man brought forth plentifully: And he thought within himself, saying,
What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build
greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. And I
will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years;
take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him,
Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose
shall those things be, which thou hast provided? So is he that layeth
up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
passage: 1Tim 5:1-5:10
Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men
as brethren; The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with
all purity. Honour widows that are widows indeed. But if any widow
have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home,
and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before
God. Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God,
and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day. But she
that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth. And these things
give in charge, that they may be blameless. But if any provide not
for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied
the faith, and is worse than an infidel. Let not a widow be taken into
the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man.
Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she
have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have
relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.
passage: Luke 17:20-17:25
And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should
come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with
observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold,
the kingdom of God is within you. And he said unto the disciples, The
days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of
man, and ye shall not see it. And they shall say to you, See here; or,
see there: go not after them, nor follow them. For as the lightning,
that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the
other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.
But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.
passage: Heb 9:1-9:7
Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service,
and a worldly sanctuary. For there was a tabernacle made; the first,
wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is
called the sanctuary. And after the second veil, the tabernacle which
is called the Holiest of all; Which had the golden censer, and the ark
of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden
pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the
covenant; And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat;
of which we cannot now speak particularly. Now when these things
were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle,
accomplishing the service of God. But into the second went the high
priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for
himself, and for the errors of the people:
passage: Luke 10:38-10:42
Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain
village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.
And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and
heard his word. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came
to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me
to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. And Jesus answered
and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about
many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good
part, which shall not be taken away from her.
passage: Luke 11:27-11:28
And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the
company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb
that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. But he said,
Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
passage: 1Tim 5:22-6:11
Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins:
keep thyself pure. Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy
stomach's sake and thine often infirmities. Some men's sins are open
beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after.
Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand; and they
that are otherwise cannot be hid.
Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy
of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed.
And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because
they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they are faithful
and beloved, partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort.
If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words,
even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which
is according to godliness; He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting
about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife,
railings, evil surmisings, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds,
and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from
such withdraw thyself. But godliness with contentment is great gain.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry
nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and
into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction
and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which
while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced
themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee
these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love,
passage: Luke 18:15-18:17
And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but
when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them
unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid
them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you,
Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall
in no wise enter therein.
passage: Luke 18:26-18:30
And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved? And he said, The
things which are impossible with men are possible with God. Then Peter
said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee. And he said unto them,
Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents,
or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake, Who
shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world
to come life everlasting.
passage: 1Tim 6:17-6:21
Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded,
nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us
richly all things to enjoy; That they do good, that they be rich in
good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; Laying up
in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come,
that they may lay hold on eternal life. O Timothy, keep that which
is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and
oppositions of science falsely so called:
passage: Luke 18:31-18:34
Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up
to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning
the Son of man shall be accomplished. For he shall be delivered unto the
Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on:
And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third day he
shall rise again. And they understood none of these things: and this
saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.
passage: 2Tim 1:1-1:1
Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the
promise of life which is in Christ Jesus,
passage: 2Tim 1:2-1:2
To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God
the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
passage: 2Tim 1:8-1:18
Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me
his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel
according to the power of God; Who hath saved us, and called us with
an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own
purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world
began, But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus
Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality
to light through the gospel: Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and
an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. For the which cause I also
suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom
I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which
I have committed unto him against that day. Hold fast the form of
sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is
in Christ Jesus. That good thing which was committed unto thee keep
by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us. This thou knowest, that all
they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus
and Hermogenes. The Lord give mercy unto the house of Onesiphorus;
for he oft refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain: But, when he
was in Rome, he sought me out very diligently, and found me. The Lord
grant unto him that he may find mercy of the Lord in that day: and in
how many things he ministered unto me at Ephesus, thou knowest very well.
passage: Luke 19:12-19:28
He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive
for himself a kingdom, and to return. And he called his ten servants,
and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.
But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We
will not have this man to reign over us. And it came to pass, that
when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded
these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money,
that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. Then came
the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. And he said
unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a
very little, have thou authority over ten cities. And the second came,
saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds. And he said likewise
to him, Be thou also over five cities. And another came, saying, Lord,
behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin: For
I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that
thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow. And he
saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked
servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid
not down, and reaping that I did not sow: Wherefore then gavest not
thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required
mine own with usury? And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him
the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds. And they said unto
him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.) For I say unto you, That unto every one
which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath
shall be taken away from him. But those mine enemies, which would not
that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.
And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.
passage: Gal 5:22-6:2
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there
is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with
the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk
in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one
another, envying one another.
Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual,
restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself,
lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil
the law of Christ.
passage: Luke 10:19-10:21
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions,
and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means
hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are
subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written
in heaven. In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank
thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these
things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes:
even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.
passage: Ephes 6:10-6:17
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his
might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh
and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the
rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness
in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all,
to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth,
and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with
the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield
of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of
the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the
Spirit, which is the word of God:
passage: Luke 13:10-13:17
And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. And,
behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen
years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.
And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman,
thou art loosed from thine infirmity. And he laid his hands on her:
and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. And the
ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus
had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six
days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed,
and not on the sabbath day. The Lord then answered him, and said,
Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox
or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering? And ought
not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound,
lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?
And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed:
and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done
passage: 2Tim 2:20-2:26
But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver,
but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto
honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto
every good work. Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness,
faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure
heart. But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they
do gender strifes. And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be
gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those
that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance
to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves
out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
passage: Luke 19:37-19:44
And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of
Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and
praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had
seen; Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord:
peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. And some of the Pharisees
from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.
And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should
hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out. And when he
was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, Saying, If thou
hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which
belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. For the
days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench
about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee;
and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou
knewest not the time of thy visitation.
passage: 2Tim 3:16-4:4
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for
doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all
I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who
shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke,
exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when
they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall
they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall
turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
passage: Luke 19:45-19:48
And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold
therein, and them that bought; Saying unto them, It is written, My
house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.
And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes
and the chief of the people sought to destroy him, And could not find
what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.
passage: 2Tim 4:9-4:22
Do thy diligence to come shortly unto me: For Demas hath forsaken me,
having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica;
Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia. Only Luke is with me. Take
Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the
ministry. And Tychicus have I sent to Ephesus. The cloke that I left
at Troas with Carpus, when thou comest, bring with thee, and the books,
but especially the parchments. Alexander the coppersmith did me much
evil: the Lord reward him according to his works: Of whom be thou ware
also; for he hath greatly withstood our words. At my first answer
no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may
not be laid to their charge. Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me,
and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and
that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth
of the lion. And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and
will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and
ever. Amen. Salute Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus.
Erastus abode at Corinth: but Trophimus have I left at Miletum sick.
Do thy diligence to come before winter. Eubulus greeteth thee, and
Pudens, and Linus, and Claudia, and all the brethren.
passage: Luke 20:1-20:8
And it came to pass, that on one of those days, as he taught the
people in the temple, and preached the gospel, the chief priests
and the scribes came upon him with the elders, And spake unto him,
saying, Tell us, by what authority doest thou these things? or who is
he that gave thee this authority? And he answered and said unto them,
I will also ask you one thing; and answer me: The baptism of John,
was it from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves,
saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then believed
ye him not? But and if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us:
for they be persuaded that John was a prophet. And they answered,
that they could not tell whence it was. And Jesus said unto them,
Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.
passage: Titus 1:5-2:1
For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order
the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had
appointed thee: If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having
faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. For a bishop must
be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry,
not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; But a lover
of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;
Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be
able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they
of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole
houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.
One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, the Cretians are
alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore
rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed
to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and
unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is
defiled. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him,
being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
passage: Luke 20:9-20:18
Then began he to speak to the people this parable; A certain man
planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and went into a
far country for a long time. And at the season he sent a servant to
the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard:
but the husbandmen beat him, and sent him away empty. And again he sent
another servant: and they beat him also, and entreated him shamefully,
and sent him away empty. And again he sent a third: and they wounded
him also, and cast him out. Then said the lord of the vineyard, What
shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence
him when they see him. But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned
among themselves, saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill him, that
the inheritance may be ours. So they cast him out of the vineyard, and
killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?
He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard
to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid. And he
beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone
which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner?
Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever
it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
passage: Titus 1:15-2:10
Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and
unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is
defiled. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him,
being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: That the aged
men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness,
not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands,
to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good,
obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded. In all things shewing
thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness,
gravity, sincerity, Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he
that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to
say of you. Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and
to please them well in all things; not answering again; Not purloining,
but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God
our Saviour in all things.
passage: Luke 20:19-20:26
And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay
hands on him; and they feared the people: for they perceived that he
had spoken this parable against them. And they watched him, and sent
forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that they might
take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power
and authority of the governor. And they asked him, saying, Master, we
know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the
person of any, but teachest the way of God truly: Is it lawful for us
to give tribute unto Caesar, or no? But he perceived their craftiness,
and said unto them, Why tempt ye me? Shew me a penny. Whose image and
superscription hath it? They answered and said, Caesar's. And he said
unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's,
and unto God the things which be God's. And they could not take hold
of his words before the people: and they marvelled at his answer,
and held their peace.
passage: Ephes 1:16-1:23
Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give
unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what
is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his
inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his
power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty
power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead,
and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all
principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that
is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head
over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him
that filleth all in all.
passage: Luke 12:32-12:40
Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give
you the kingdom. Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves
bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not,
where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. For where your
treasure is, there will your heart be also. Let your loins be girded
about, and your lights burning; And ye yourselves like unto men that
wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he
cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. Blessed are
those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching:
verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to
sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall
come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so,
blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the
house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched,
and not have suffered his house to be broken through. Be ye therefore
ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
passage: Col 1:12-1:18
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers
of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us
from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom
of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even
the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the
firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that
are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether
they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things
were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by
him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church:
who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things
he might have the preeminence.
passage: Luke 18:35-18:43
And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain
blind man sat by the way side begging: And hearing the multitude pass
by, he asked what it meant. And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth
passeth by. And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy
on me. And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his
peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou son of David, have mercy
on me. And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him:
and when he was come near, he asked him, Saying, What wilt thou that
I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight.
And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.
And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God:
and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.
passage: Heb 3:5-3:11
And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a
testimony of those things which were to be spoken after; But Christ
as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the
confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. Wherefore
(as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not
your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the
wilderness: When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works
forty years. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said,
They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.
So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)
passage: Luke 20:27-20:44
Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there is any
resurrection; and they asked him, Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If
any man's brother die, having a wife, and he die without children, that
his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and
died without children. And the second took her to wife, and he died
childless. And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also:
and they left no children, and died. Last of all the woman died also.
Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven
had her to wife. And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of
this world marry, and are given in marriage: But they which shall be
accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the
dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: Neither can they die any
more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God,
being the children of the resurrection. Now that the dead are raised,
even Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of
Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. For he is not a
God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him. Then certain
of the scribes answering said, Master, thou hast well said. And after
that they durst not ask him any question at all. And he said unto them,
How say they that Christ is David's son? And David himself saith in the
book of Psalms, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
Till I make thine enemies thy footstool. David therefore calleth him
Lord, how is he then his son?
passage: Heb 4:1-4:13
Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into
his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us
was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached
did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have
sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the
works were finished from the foundation of the world. For he spake in
a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the
seventh day from all his works. And in this place again, If they shall
enter into my rest. Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter
therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because
of unbelief: Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day,
after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice,
harden not your hearts. For if Jesus had given them rest, then would
he not afterward have spoken of another day. There remaineth therefore
a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest,
he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us
labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the
same example of unbelief. For the word of God is quick, and powerful,
and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing
asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a
discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there
any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are
naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
passage: Luke 21:12-21:19
But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute
you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought
before kings and rulers for my name's sake. And it shall turn to you
for a testimony. Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate
before what ye shall answer: For I will give you a mouth and wisdom,
which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks,
and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake. But there shall
not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye your souls.
passage: Heb 5:11-6:8
Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye
are dull of hearing. For when for the time ye ought to be teachers,
ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles
of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and
not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the
word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to
them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their
senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go
on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from
dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and
of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal
judgment. And this will we do, if God permit. For it is impossible for
those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift,
and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word
of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away,
to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves
the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. For the earth
which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth
herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God:
But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto
cursing; whose end is to be burned.
passage: Luke 21:5-21:7
And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones
and gifts, he said, As for these things which ye behold, the days will
come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another,
that shall not be thrown down. And they asked him, saying, Master,
but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these
things shall come to pass?
passage: Luke 21:10-21:10
Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom
passage: Luke 21:11-21:11
And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and
pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from
passage: Luke 21:20-21:24
And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the
desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to
the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and
let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the
days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in
those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon
this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall
be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden
down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
passage: Heb 7:1-7:6
For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met
Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; To
whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation
King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is,
King of peace; Without father, without mother, without descent, having
neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son
of God; abideth a priest continually. Now consider how great this man
was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.
And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office
of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people
according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out
of the loins of Abraham: But he whose descent is not counted from them
received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.
passage: Luke 21:28-21:33
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up
your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. And he spake to them a
parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot
forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh
at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know
ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you,
This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and
earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
passage: Heb 7:18-7:25
For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for
the weakness and unprofitableness thereof. For the law made nothing
perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw
nigh unto God. And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest:
For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by
him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a
priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:) By so much was Jesus
made a surety of a better testament. And they truly were many priests,
because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death: But
this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto
God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
passage: Luke 21:37-22:8
And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night he
went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.
And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple,
for to hear him.
Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the
Passover. And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill
him; for they feared the people. Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed
Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve. And he went his way,
and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray
him unto them. And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money.
And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in
the absence of the multitude. Then came the day of unleavened bread,
when the passover must be killed. And he sent Peter and John, saying,
Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.
passage: Ephes 2:11-2:13
Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh,
who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision
in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ,
being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the
covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by
the blood of Christ.
passage: Luke 13:18-13:29
Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto
shall I resemble it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man
took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree;
and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it. And again he
said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God? It is like leaven,
which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole
was leavened. And he went through the cities and villages, teaching,
and journeying toward Jerusalem. Then said one unto him, Lord, are
there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in
at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in,
and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up,
and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock
at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and
say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say,
We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our
streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are;
depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and
gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and
all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north,
and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.
passage: Col 3:12-3:16
Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels
of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a
quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And
above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are
called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell
in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in
psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts
to the Lord.
passage: Luke 17:12-17:19
And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that
were lepers, which stood afar off: And they lifted up their voices, and
said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said
unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass,
that, as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw
that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,
And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a
Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but
where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory
to God, save this stranger. And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way:
thy faith hath made thee whole.
passage: Heb 8:7-8:13
For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place
have been sought for the second. For finding fault with them, he saith,
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant
with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Not according
to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took
them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they
continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after
those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and
write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall
be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour,
and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know
me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their
unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember
no more. In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first
old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
passage: Mark 8:11-8:21
And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking
of him a sign from heaven, tempting him. And he sighed deeply in his
spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I
say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation. And he
left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.
Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the
ship with them more than one loaf. And he charged them, saying, Take
heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.
And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have
no bread. And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye,
because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have
ye your heart yet hardened? Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears,
hear ye not? and do ye not remember? When I brake the five loaves among
five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say
unto him, Twelve. And when the seven among four thousand, how many
baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven. And he
said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?
passage: Heb 9:8-9:10
The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was
not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:
Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered
both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service
perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; Which stood only in meats
and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them
until the time of reformation.
passage: Heb 9:15-9:23
And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by
means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were
under the first testament, they which are called might receive the
promise of eternal inheritance. For where a testament is, there must
also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is
of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all
while the testator liveth. Whereupon neither the first testament was
dedicated without blood. For when Moses had spoken every precept to
all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and
of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled
both the book, and all the people, Saying, This is the blood of the
testament which God hath enjoined unto you. Moreover he sprinkled
with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.
And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without
shedding of blood is no remission. It was therefore necessary that
the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these;
but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
passage: Mark 8:22-8:26
And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and
besought him to touch him. And he took the blind man by the hand,
and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put
his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought. And he looked up,
and said, I see men as trees, walking. After that he put his hands
again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and
saw every man clearly. And he sent him away to his house, saying,
Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.
passage: Heb 10:1-10:18
For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very
image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered
year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then
would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers
once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. But in those
sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.
For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should
take away sins. Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith,
Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared
me: In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,)
to do thy will, O God. Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and
burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst
pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; Then said he, Lo, I come
to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish
the second. By the which will we are sanctified through the offering
of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest standeth
daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can
never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice
for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth
expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering
he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Whereof the Holy
Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, This
is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the
Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will
I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.
passage: Mark 8:30-8:34
And he charged them that they should tell no man of him. And he began to
teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected
of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed,
and after three days rise again. And he spake that saying openly. And
Peter took him, and began to rebuke him. But when he had turned about
and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind
me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the
things that be of men. And when he had called the people unto him with
his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me,
let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
passage: Heb 10:35-11:7
Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence
of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the
will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while,
and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just
shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no
pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition;
but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things
not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith
we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so
that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain,
by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of
his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. By faith Enoch was
translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God
had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony,
that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please
him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he
is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. By faith Noah, being
warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an
ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world,
and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
passage: Mark 9:10-9:16
And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with another
what the rising from the dead should mean. And they asked him, saying,
Why say the scribes that Elias must first come? And he answered and
told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and
how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things,
and be set at nought. But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come,
and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written
of him. And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude
about them, and the scribes questioning with them. And straightway all
the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to
him saluted him. And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?
passage: Heb 11:8-11:8
By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which
he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out,
not knowing whither he went.
passage: Heb 11:11-11:16
Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed,
and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged
him faithful who had promised. Therefore sprang there even of one,
and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude,
and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable. These all died in
faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off,
and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they
were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things
declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been
mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had
opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country,
that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their
God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
passage: Mark 9:33-9:41
And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them, What
was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way? But they held
their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who
should be the greatest. And he sat down, and called the twelve, and
saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last
of all, and servant of all. And he took a child, and set him in the
midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,
Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me:
and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.
And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils
in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he
followeth not us. But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man
which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
For he that is not against us is on our part. For whosoever shall give
you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ,
verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
passage: Ephes 5:1-5:8
Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love,
as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering
and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. But fornication,
and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among
you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking,
nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous
man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ
and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of
these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness,
but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
passage: Luke 14:1-14:11
And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief
Pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched him.
And, behold, there was a certain man before him which had the dropsy.
And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it
lawful to heal on the sabbath day? And they held their peace. And he
took him, and healed him, and let him go; And answered them, saying,
Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will
not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day? And they could not
answer him again to these things. And he put forth a parable to those
which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms;
saying unto them. When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit
not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou
be bidden of him; And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee,
Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.
But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when
he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher:
then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat
with thee. For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that
humbleth himself shall be exalted.
passage: Col 3:4-3:11
When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also
appear with him in glory. Mortify therefore your members which
are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection,
evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which
things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. But now
ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy
communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another, seeing that ye
have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man,
which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision,
Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
passage: Luke 14:16-14:24
Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:
And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden,
Come; for all things are now ready. And they all with one consent began
to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground,
and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. And another
said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray
thee have me excused. And another said, I have married a wife, and
therefore I cannot come. So that servant came, and shewed his lord these
things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go
out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither
the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. And the servant
said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges,
and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. For I say unto
you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my supper.
passage: Heb 11:17-11:17
By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had
received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
passage: Heb 11:27-11:31
By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he
endured, as seeing him who is invisible. Through faith he kept the
passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the
firstborn should touch them. By faith they passed through the Red
sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.
By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed
about seven days. By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them
that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.
passage: Mark 9:42-10:1
And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me,
it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and
he were cast into the sea. And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off:
it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands
to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their
worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot offend
thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than
having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall
be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be
cast into hell fire: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not
quenched. For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice
shall be salted with salt. Salt is good: but if the salt have lost
his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves,
and have peace one with another.
