Verses of the day
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of Jehovah is risen upon thee.2For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but Jehovah will arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee
He that believeth on him is not judged: he that believeth not hath been judged already, because he hath not believed on the name of the only begotten Son of God.
17but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.18And Jehovah God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.
And the man said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
1But there arose false prophets also among the people, as among you also there shall be false teachers, who shall privily bring in destructive heresies, denying even the Master that bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.2And many shall follow their lascivious doings; by reason of whom the way of the truth shall be evil spoken of.3And in covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose sentence now from of old lingereth not, and their destruction slumbereth not.4For if God spared not angels when they sinned, but cast them down to hell, and committed them to pits of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;5and spared not the ancient world, but preserved Noah with seven others, a preacher of righteousness, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly;6and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, having made them an example unto those that should live ungodly;7and delivered righteous Lot, sore distressed by the lascivious life of the wicked8(for that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed [his] righteous soul from day to day with [their] lawless deeds):9the Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment unto the day of judgment;10but chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of defilement, and despise dominion. Daring, self-willed, they tremble not to rail at dignities:11whereas angels, though greater in might and power, bring not a railing judgment against them before the Lord.12But these, as creatures without reason, born mere animals to be taken and destroyed, railing in matters whereof they are ignorant, shall in their destroying surely be destroyed,13suffering wrong as the hire of wrong-doing; [men] that count it pleasure to revel in the day-time, spots and blemishes, revelling in their deceivings while they feast with you;14having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; enticing unstedfast souls; having a heart exercised in covetousness; children of cursing;15forsaking the right way, they went astray, having followed the way of Balaam the [son] of Beor, who loved the hire of wrong-doing;16but he was rebuked for his own transgression: a dumb ass spake with man`s voice and stayed the madness of the prophet.17These are springs without water, and mists driven by a storm; for whom the blackness of darkness hath been reserved.
Remember them that had the rule over you, men that spake unto you the word of God; and considering the issue of their life, imitate their faith.
For we have not here an abiding city, but we seek after [the city] which is to come.
Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit [to them]: for they watch in behalf of your souls, as they that shall give account; that they may do this with joy, and not with grief: for this [were] unprofitable for you.
22Behold, God doeth loftily in his power: Who is a teacher like unto him?
For the Son of man came to seek and to save that which was lost.
And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.
17And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as one dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying, Fear not; I am the first and the last,18and the Living one; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive for evermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.
1The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart; and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil [to come].2He entereth into peace; they rest in their beds, each one that walketh in his uprightness
If a man die, shall he live [again]? All the days of my warfare would I wait, Till my release should come.
I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth are passed away; and the sea is no more.2And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven of God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.3And I heard a great voice out of the throne saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he shall dwell with them, and they shall be his peoples, and God himself shall be with them, [and be] their God:4and he shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more; neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more: the first things are passed away.5And he that sitteth on the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he saith, Write: for these words are faithful and true
And I heard the voice from heaven saying, Write, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from henceforth: yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; for their works follow with them.
1For everything there is a season, and a time for very purpose under heaven:2a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;3a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;4a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;5a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing
For when a few years are come, I shall go the way whence I shall not return.
Marvel not at this: for the hour cometh, in which all that are in the tombs shall hear his voice,
and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of judgment.
