I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. – The same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. – The gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent. – It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
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. – Fear not; I am the first and the last.
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. – Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light.
Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. … 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.
What is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. – The world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. … And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last.
Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
To him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. – If our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.
All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence. … Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
God … hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 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. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
The grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. … The free gift is of many offences unto justification.
God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) and hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: that in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. – I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Because I live, ye shall live also. – I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. … For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, … and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. – An everlasting covenant, ordered in all things, and sure. – That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us.
We declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers, God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again.
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my reins and my heart. – Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. – I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies. I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments. – Let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. – We have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: and he is the propitiation for our sins. – Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; and having an high priest over the house of God; let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God.
Ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. – Seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. – Now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. … For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth.
Lo, I am with you alway. – I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. – I will pray the Father and he shall give you another Comforter … he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him. – Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
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. – And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. – Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. – Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. – This is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. – Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
