"Trust in the LORD
with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all
thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy
path." Proverbs 3:5-6
I John 2:9-11
He that saith he is in the
light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loveth
his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling
in him. But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness,
and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his
I John 4:20
If a man say, I love God, and
hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom
he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
If the world hate you, ye know
that it hated me before [it hated] you. 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.
He that hateth me hateth my
Father also. 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. But [this cometh to pass], that the word might be fulfilled
that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
Thou shalt not hate thy brother
in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer
sin upon him.
Ye have heard that it hath
been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say
unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them
that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute
you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven:
for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth
rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you,
what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute
your brethren only, what do ye more [than others]? do not even the publicans
so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is
And ye shall be hated of all
[men] for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Hatred stirreth up strifes:
but love covereth all sins.
But if any man hate his neighbour,
and lie in wait for him, and rise up against him, and smite him mortally
that he die, and fleeth into one of these cities: Then the elders of his
city shall send and fetch him thence, and deliver him into the hand of
the avenger of blood, that he may die. Thine eye shall not pity him, but
thou shalt put away [the guilt of] innocent blood from Israel, that it
may go well with thee.
He that smiteth a man, so that
he die, shall be surely put to death. And if a man lie not in wait, but
God deliver [him] into his hand; then I will appoint thee a place whither
he shall flee. But if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbour, to
slay him with guile; thou shalt take him from mine altar, that he may die.
And he that killeth any man
shall surely be put to death.
And if he smite him with an
instrument of iron, so that he die, he [is] a murderer: the murderer shall
surely be put to death. And if he smite him with throwing a stone, wherewith
he may die, and he die, he [is] a murderer: the murderer shall surely be
put to death. Or [if] he smite him with an hand weapon of wood, wherewith
he may die, and he die, he [is] a murderer: the murderer shall surely be
put to death. The revenger of blood himself shall slay the murderer: when
he meeteth him, he shall slay him. But if he thrust him of hatred, or hurl
at him by laying of wait, that he die; Or in enmity smite him with
his hand, that he die: he that smote [him] shall surely be put to death;
[for] he [is] a murderer: the revenger of blood shall slay the murderer,
when he meeteth him.
Whoso killeth any person, the
murderer shall be put to death by the mouth of witnesses: but one witness
shall not testify against any person [to cause him] to die. Moreover ye
shall take no satisfaction for the life of a murderer, which [is] guilty
of death: but he shall be surely put to death. And ye shall take no satisfaction
for him that is fled to the city of his refuge, that he should come again
to dwell in the land, until the death of the priest. So ye shall not pollute
the land wherein ye [are]: for blood it defileth the land: and the land
cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood
of him that shed it.
But the fearful, and unbelieving,
and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and
idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth
with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Honour thy father and thy mother,
as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged,
and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth
Children, obey your parents
in the Lord: for this is right.
Honour thy father and thy mother:
that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
He that loveth father or mother
more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more
than me is not worthy of me.
For God commanded, saying,
Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let
him die the death.
My son, hear the instruction
of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they [shall be]
an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
The proverbs of Solomon. A
wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son [is] the heaviness of
He that wasteth [his] father,
[and] chaseth away [his] mother, [is] a son that causeth shame, and bringeth
Whoso curseth his father or
his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.
Hearken unto thy father that
begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.
I Corinthians 13:13
And now abideth faith, hope,
charity, these three; but the greatest of these [is] charity.
The eyes of your understanding
being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and
what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
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.
I Peter 1:13
Wherefore gird up the loins
of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be
brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
The hope of the righteous [shall
be] gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
Be of good courage, and he
shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.
But I will hope continually,
and will yet praise thee more and more.
Let Israel hope in the LORD:
for with the LORD [there is] mercy, and with him [is] plenteous redemption.
Therefore being justified by
faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also
we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in
hope of the glory of God. And not only [so], but we glory in tribulations
also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience;
and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of
God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto
Rejoicing in hope; patient
in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer.
For whatsoever things were
written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience
and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through
the power of the Holy Ghost.
For thus saith the high and
lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name [is] Holy; I dwell in the
high and holy [place], with him also [that is] of a contrite and humble
spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of
the contrite ones.
For all those [things] hath
mine hand made, and all those [things] have been, saith the LORD: but to
this [man] will I look, [even] to [him that is] poor and of a contrite
spirit, and trembleth at my word.
And he spoke this parable unto
certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised
others: 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. I fast twice in the week, I give
tithes of all that I possess. 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: for every one that exalteth
himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
And Jesus called a little child
unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto
you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not
enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself
as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
[Let] nothing [be done] through
strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better
than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also
on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ
Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal
with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form
of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion
as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the
death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given
him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee
should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things]
under the earth; And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus
Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
[When] pride cometh, then cometh
shame: but with the lowly [is] wisdom.
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 faith.
