And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. A Psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Now therefore take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and offer up a burnt offering for yourselves.
And my servant Job shall pray for you, for I will accept his prayer not to deal with you according to your folly. For you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has. Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready;.
And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer, and he was given much incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar before the throne, and the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose before God from the hand of the angel. And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.
And whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him. Beloved, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become accountable for all of it. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.
Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,.
Flee from sexual immorality. Q Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. S Honor one another above yourselves. Y Practice hospitality. AC Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. AE Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head. AL The authorities that exist have been established by God. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority?
Then do what is right and you will be commended. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. BK To their own master, servants stand or fall.
And they will stand, for the Lord is able to make them stand. Each of them should be fully convinced in their own mind. Whoever eats meat does so to the Lord, for they give thanks to God; BM and whoever abstains does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are not consumed by one another. Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. I myself am satisfied about you, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able to instruct one another. See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.
The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.
See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone. Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. Believe in God; believe also in me.
In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going. How can we know the way? Remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,. Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you, I give men in return for you, peoples in exchange for your life.
Fear not, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and from the west I will gather you. I will say to the north, Give up, and to the south, Do not withhold; bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the earth, everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made. Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations,.
The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband. We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of every one of you for one another is increasing.
That there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him.
