Bible verses in King James Version

John 14
     1   Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
     2   In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would
     have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
     3   And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive
     you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
     4   And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
     5   Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and
     how can we know the way?
     6   Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man
     cometh unto the Father, but by me.
     7   If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from
     henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
     8   Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
     9   Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast
     thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father;
     and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?
     10   Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the
     words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that
     dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
     11   Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else
     believe me for the very works' sake.
     12   Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that
     I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I
     go unto my Father.
     13   And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the
     Father may be glorified in the Son.
     14   If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
     15   If ye love me, keep my commandments.
     16   And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter,
     that he may abide with you for ever;
     17   Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it
     seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with
     you, and shall be in you.
     18   I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
     19   Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me:
     because I live, ye shall live also.
     20   At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I
     in you.
     21   He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that
     loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will
     love him, and will manifest myself to him.
     22   Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt
     manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
     23   Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my
     words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make
     our abode with him.
     24   He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which
     ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
     25   These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
     26   But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send
     in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your
     remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
     27   Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world
     giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be
     28   Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto
     you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the
     Father: for my Father is greater than I.
     29   And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come
     to pass, ye might believe.
     30   Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world
     cometh, and hath nothing in me.
     31   But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the
     Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

 Psalm 27
     1   The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is
     the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
     2   When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to
     eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
     3   Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear:
     though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
     4   One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may
     dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty
     of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
     5   For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret
     of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
     6   And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about
     me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea,
     I will sing praises unto the LORD.
     7   Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me,
     and answer me.
     8   When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy
     face, LORD, will I seek.
     9   Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou
     hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my
     10   When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take
     me up.
     11   Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of
     mine enemies.
     12   Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses
     are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
     13   I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD
     in the land of the living.
     14   Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine
     heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

 Psalm 51
     1   Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness:
     according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my
     2   Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
     3   For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
     4   Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight:
     that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when
     thou judgest.
     5   Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
     6   Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part
     thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
     7   Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be
     whiter than snow.
     8   Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast
     broken may rejoice.
     9   Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
     10   Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
     11   Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit
     from me.
     12   Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free
     13   Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be
     converted unto thee.
     14   Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and
     my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
     15   O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
     16   For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest
     not in burnt offering.
     17   The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite
     heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
     18   Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of
     19   Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with
     burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon
     thine altar.

Matt. 6:19-34
     19   Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust
     doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
     20   But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor
     rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
     21   For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
     22   The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy
     whole body shall be full of light.
     23   But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If
     therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
     24   No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and
     love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye
     cannot serve God and mammon.
     25   Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall
     eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is
     not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
     26   Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap,
     nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not
     much better than they?
     27   Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
     28   And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field,
     how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
     29   And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not
     arrayed like one of these.
     30   Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and
     to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye
     of little faith?
     31   Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall
     we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
     32   (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly
     Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
     33   But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all
     these things shall be added unto you.
     34   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 thereof.

Psalm 91
     1   He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under
     the shadow of the Almighty.
     2   I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him
     will I trust.
     3   Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the
     noisome pestilence.
     4   He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou
     trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
     5   Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that
     flieth by day;
     6   Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction
     that wasteth at noonday.
     7   A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand;
     but it shall not come nigh thee.
     8   Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the
     9   Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most
     High, thy habitation;
     10   There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy
     11   For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy
     12   They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against
     a stone.
     13   Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the
     dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
     14   Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I
     will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
     15   He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in
     trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
     16   With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Psalm 139
     1   O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.
     2   Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest
     my thought afar off.
     3   Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with
     all my ways.
     4   For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it
     5   Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
     6   Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto
     7   Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy
     8   If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell,
     behold, thou art there.
     9   If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of
     the sea;
     10   Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
     11   If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be
     light about me.
     12   Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the
     day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.
     13   For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my
     mother's womb.
     14   I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous
     are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
     15   My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and
     curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
     16   Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy
     book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned,
     when as yet there was none of them.
     17   How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the
     sum of them!
     18   If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when
     I awake, I am still with thee.
     19   Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye
     bloody men.
     20   For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy
     name in vain.
     21   Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved
     with those that rise up against thee?
     22   I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
     23   Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my
     24   And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way

 Psalm 23
     1   The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
     2   He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the
     still waters.
     3   He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for
     his name's sake.
     4   Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will
     fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
     5   Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
     thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
     6   Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I
     will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

I. Cor. 13
     1   Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not
     charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
     2   And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries,
     and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove
     mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
     3   And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give
     my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
     4   Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity
     vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
     5   Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily
     provoked, thinketh no evil;
     6   Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
     7   Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all
     8   Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail;
     whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge,
     it shall vanish away.
     9   For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
     10   But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part
     shall be done away.
     11   When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I
     thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
     12   For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I
     know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
     13   And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of
     these is charity.

 Rom. 8:31
      31   What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be
     against us?

Matt. 11:25-30
     25   At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of
     heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and
     prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
     26   Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.
     27   All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth
     the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the
     Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
     28   Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give
     you rest.
     29   Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in
     heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
     30   For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Psalm 90
     1   Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
     2   Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed
     the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art
     3   Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of
     4   For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past,
     and as a watch in the night.
     5   Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the
     morning they are like grass which groweth up.
     6   In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut
     down, and withereth.
     7   For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we
     8   Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of
     thy countenance.
     9   For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a
     tale that is told.
     10   The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason
     of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and
     sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
     11   Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear,
     so is thy wrath.
     12   So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto
     13   Return, O LORD, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy
     14   O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all
     our days.
     15   Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us,
     and the years wherein we have seen evil.
     16   Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their
     17   And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish
     thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish
     thou it.

Rom. 8:1-30
     1   There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ
     Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
     2   For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from
     the law of sin and death.
     3   For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh,
     God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin,
     condemned sin in the flesh:
     4   That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not
     after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
     5   For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but
     they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
     6   For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life
     and peace.
     7   Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to
     the law of God, neither indeed can be.
     8   So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
     9   But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of
     God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none
     of his.
     10   And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit
     is life because of righteousness.
     11   But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you,
     he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies
     by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
     12   Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the
     13   For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit
     do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
     14   For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
     15   For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye
     have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
     16   The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the
     children of God:
     17   And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if
     so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
     18   For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to
     be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
     19   For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the
     manifestation of the sons of God.
     20   For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by
     reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
     21   Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of
     corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
     22   For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain
     together until now.
     23   And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the
     Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption,
     to wit, the redemption of our body.
     24   For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for
     what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
     25   But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for
     26   Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what
     we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession
     for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
     27   And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the
     Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will
     of God.
     28   And we know that all things work together for good to them that love
     God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
     29   For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed
     to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many
     30   Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom
     he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also

Psalm 121
     1   I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
     2   My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
     3   He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not
     4   Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
     5   The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
     6   The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
     7   The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
     8   The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time
     forth, and even for evermore.

Psalm 67
     1   God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon
     us; Selah.
     2   That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all
     3   Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
     4   O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the
     people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.
     5   Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
     6   Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God,
     shall bless us.
     7   God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.

Joshua 1
    1   Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass,
     that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying,
     2   Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan,
     thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to
     the children of Israel.
     3   Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I
     given unto you, as I said unto Moses.
     4   From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the
     river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward
     the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.
     5   There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of
     thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor
     forsake thee.
     6   Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide
     for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
     7   Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to
     do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee:
     turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper
     withersoever thou goest.
     8   This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt
     meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according
     to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous,
     and then thou shalt have good success.
     9   Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not
     afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee
     whithersoever thou goest.
     10   Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying,
     11   Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare you
     victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this Jordan, to go in to
     possess the land, which the LORD your God giveth you to possess it.
     12   And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of
     Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying,
     13   Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded
     you, saying, The LORD your God hath given you rest, and hath given you
     this land.
     14   Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle, shall remain in the land
     which Moses gave you on this side Jordan; but ye shall pass before your
     brethren armed, all the mighty men of valour, and help them;
     15   Until the LORD have given your brethren rest, as he hath given you,
     and they also have possessed the land which the LORD your God giveth
     them: then ye shall return unto the land of your possession, and enjoy it,
     which Moses the LORD's servant gave you on this side Jordan toward the
     16   And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us we
     will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go.
     17   According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we
     hearken unto thee: only the LORD thy God be with thee, as he was with
     18   Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will
     not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be
     put to death: only be strong and of a good courage.

Mark 10
1   And he arose from thence, and cometh into the coasts of Judaea by
     the farther side of Jordan: and the people resort unto him again; and, as
     he was wont, he taught them again.
     2   And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to
     put away his wife? tempting him.
     3   And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?
     4   And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put
     her away.
     5   And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your
     heart he wrote you this precept.
     6   But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
     7   For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to
     his wife;
     8   And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but
     one flesh.
     9   What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
     10   And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.
     11   And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry
     another, committeth adultery against her.
     12   And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to
     another, she committeth adultery.
     13   And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them:
     and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
     14   But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them,
     Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such
     is the kingdom of God.
     15   Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God
     as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
     16   And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and
     blessed them.
     17   And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running,
     and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I
     may inherit eternal life?
     18   And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none
     good but one, that is, God.
     19   Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill,
     Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father
     and mother.
     20   And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed
     from my youth.
     21   Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou
     lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and
     thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and
     follow me.
     22   And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had
     great possessions.
     23   And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly
     shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
     24   And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth
     again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in
     riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
     25   It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a
     rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
     26   And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves,
     Who then can be saved?
     27   And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not
     with God: for with God all things are possible.
     28   Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have
     followed thee.
     29   And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man
     that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife,
     or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,
     30   But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and
     brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with
     persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
     31   But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.
     32   And they were in the way going up to Jerusalem; and Jesus went
     before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were
     afraid. And he took again the twelve, and began to tell them what things
     should happen unto him,
     33   Saying, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be
     delivered unto the chief priests, and unto the scribes; and they shall
     condemn him to death, and shall deliver him to the Gentiles:
     34   And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon
     him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again.
     35   And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying,
     Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall
     36   And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?
     37   They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right
     hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.
     38   But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of
     the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am
     baptized with?
     39   And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye shall
     indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am
     baptized withal shall ye be baptized:
     40   But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give;
     but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.
     41   And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with
     James and John.
     42   But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they
     which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them;
     and their great ones exercise authority upon them.
     43   But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among
     you, shall be your minister:
     44   And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
     45   For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to
     minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
     46   And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his
     disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of
     Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.
     47   And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry
     out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.
     48   And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the
     more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.
     49   And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call
     the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.
     50   And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
     51   And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should
     do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my
     52   And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole.
     And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

Psalm 27
    1   The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is
     the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
     2   When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to
     eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
     3   Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear:
     though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
     4   One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may
     dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty
     of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
     5   For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret
     of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
     6   And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about
     me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea,
     I will sing praises unto the LORD.
     7   Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me,
     and answer me.
     8   When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy
     face, LORD, will I seek.
     9   Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou
     hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my
     10   When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take
     me up.
     11   Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of
     mine enemies.
     12   Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses
     are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
     13   I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD
     in the land of the living.
     14   Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine
     heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

Psalm 37
    1   Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against
     the workers of iniquity.
     2   For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green
     3   Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and
     verily thou shalt be fed.
     4   Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of
     thine heart.
     5   Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it
     to pass.
     6   And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy
     judgment as the noonday.
     7   Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because
     of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked
     devices to pass.
     8   Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do
     9   For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they
     shall inherit the earth.
     10   For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt
     diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
     11   But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in
     the abundance of peace.
     12   The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his
     13   The LORD shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
     14   The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to
     cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright
     15   Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be
     16   A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many
     17   For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth
     the righteous.
     18   The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall
     be for ever.
     19   They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine
     they shall be satisfied.
     20   But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as
     the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
     21   The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous
     sheweth mercy, and giveth.
     22   For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be
     cursed of him shall be cut off.
     23   The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth
     in his way.
     24   Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD
     upholdeth him with his hand.
     25   I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the
     righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
     26   He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
     27   Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
     28   For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are
     preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
     29   The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
     30   The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh
     of judgment.
     31   The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
     32   The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
     33   The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is
     34   Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit
     the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
     35   I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a
     green bay tree.
     36   Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he
     could not be found.
     37   Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man
     is peace.
     38   But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the
     wicked shall be cut off.
     39   But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength
     in the time of trouble.
     40   And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them
     from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

1 Cor. 13 (see above)

John 15
     1   I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
     2   Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every
     branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
     3   Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
     4   Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself,
     except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
     5   I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him,
     the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
     6   If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered;
     and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
     7   If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will,
     and it shall be done unto you.
     8   Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my
     9   As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my
     10   If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I
     have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
     11   These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in
     you, and that your joy might be full.
     12   This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved
     13   Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for
     his friends.
     14   Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
     15   Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what
     his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have
     heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
     16   Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you,
     that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain:
     that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
     17   These things I command you, that ye love one another.
     18   If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
     19   If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye
     are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the
     world hateth you.
     20   Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater
     than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if
     they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
     21   But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because
     they know not him that sent me.
     22   If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but
     now they have no cloak for their sin.
     23   He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
     24   If I had not done among them the works which none other man did,
     they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me
     and my Father.
     25   But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is
     written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
     26   But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the
     Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he
     shall testify of me:
     27   And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from
     the beginning.

Psalm 126
    1   When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them
     that dream.
     2   Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing:
     then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for
     3   The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.
     4   Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south.
     5   They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
     6   He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall
     doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

Psalm 19
    1   The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his
     2   Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth
     3   There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
     4   Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end
     of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
     5   Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a
     strong man to run a race.
     6   His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the
     ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
     7   The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of
     the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
     8   The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the
     commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
     9   The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the
     LORD are true and righteous altogether.
     10   More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold:
     sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
     11   Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there
     is great reward.
     12   Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
     13   Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have
     dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the
     great transgression.
     14   Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be
     acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

John 15 (see above)

2. Cor. 5:15-19
     15   And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth
     live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
     16   Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though
     we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no
     17   Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are
     passed away; behold, all things are become new.
     18   And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus
     Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
     19   To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not
     imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word
     of reconciliation.

Isaiah 55
    1   Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath
     no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without
     money and without price.
     2   Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your
     labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye
     that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
     3   Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and
     I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of
     4   Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and
     commander to the people.
     5   Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations
     that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the LORD thy God, and
     for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.
     6   Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is
     7   Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts:
     and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to
     our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
     8   For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my
     ways, saith the LORD.
     9   For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher
     than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
     10   For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and
     returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth
     and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
     11   So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not
     return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall
     prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
     12   For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the
     mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the
     trees of the field shall clap their hands.
     13   Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the
     brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name,
     for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

Rom. 12
    1   I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye
     present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is
     your reasonable service.
     2   And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the
     renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and
     acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
     3   For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is
     among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but
     to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of
     4   For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not
     the same office:
     5   So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one
     of another.
     6   Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us,
     whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
     7   Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on
     8   Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with
     simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with
     9   Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to
     that which is good.
     10   Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour
     preferring one another;
     11   Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
     12   Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
     13   Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
     14   Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
     15   Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
     16   Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but
     condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
     17   Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight
     of all men.
     18   If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
     19   Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto
     wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
     20   Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink:
     for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
     21   Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Col. 3:12-17
12   Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of
     mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
     13   Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a
