When ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
They … called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us.
Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. … And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other.
My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: for whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. – Even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. – He maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole. – Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. – I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.
He doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men. – He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins. – I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. – Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. – I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. – Thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
Thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption: for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back. – Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity? … he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. – Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, … to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
This is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life. – Whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
My yoke is easy, and my burden is light. – If ye love me, keep my commandments. – 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.
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. … Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. – Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them. – I delight in the law of God after the inward man.
This is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another. – Love worketh no ill to his neighbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
Take heed therefore how ye hear. – Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom. – Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them. … How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. – I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.
Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. – But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
If, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. – 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.
Because I live, ye shall live also. – If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
The Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord. – We have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace. – Ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Let him take hold of my strength, that he may make peace with me; and he shall make peace with me. – Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace.
Being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. – A man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ. – By the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight.
By him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap.
I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands. … These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. … They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. – Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free.
The Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
He … kneeled down, and prayed, … And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
It was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: … they took Jesus, and led him away; … into a place called … Golgotha: where they crucified him.
Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: therefore let us keep the feast.
The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. – When he giveth quietness, who then can make trouble? and when he hideth his face, who then can behold him?
Salvation belongeth unto the Lord: thy blessing is upon thy people. – How great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men! – I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
Ask, and it shall be given you; 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. – The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
