passage: Rom 2:28-3:18
For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that
circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which
is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit,
and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of
circumcision? Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were
committed the oracles of God. For what if some did not believe? shall
their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea,
let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou
mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou
art judged. But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of
God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I
speak as a man) God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world?
For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his
glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner? And not rather, (as we
be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do
evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just. What then? are we
better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews
and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is
none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is
none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they
are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no,
not one. Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they
have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: Whose mouth
is full of cursing and bitterness: Their feet are swift to shed blood:
Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace have
they not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes.
passage: Matt 6:31-6:34
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall
we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? For after all these
things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye
have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God,
and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take
thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil
passage: Matt 7:9-7:11
Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give
him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye
then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how
much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them
that ask him?
