2 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: But righteousness delivereth from death.
3 The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: But he casteth away the substance of the wicked.
The Holy Bible: King James Version, Electronic Edition of the 1900 Authorized Version. (Bellingham, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc., 2009), Proverbs 10:2–3.
1 Don’t boast about tomorrow, for you don’t know what a day might bring.
2 Let another praise you, and not your own mouth — a stranger, and not your own lips.
3 A stone is heavy and sand, a burden, but aggravation from a fool outweighs them both.
4 Fury is cruel, and anger a flood, but who can withstand jealousy?
5 Better an open reprimand than concealed love.
6 The wounds of a friend are trustworthy, but the kisses of an enemy are excessive.
7 A person who is full tramples on a honeycomb, but to a hungry person, any bitter thing is sweet.
8 A man wandering from his home is like a bird wandering from its nest.
9 Oil and incense bring joy to the heart, and the sweetness of a friend is better than self-counsel.
10 Don’t abandon your friend or your father’s friend, and don’t go to your brother’s house in your time of calamity; better a neighbor nearby than a brother far away.
11 Be wise, my son, and bring my heart joy, so that I can answer anyone who taunts me.
12 A sensible person sees danger and takes cover; the inexperienced keep going and are punished.
13 Take his garment, for he has put up security for a stranger; get collateral if it is for foreigners.
14 If one blesses his neighbor with a loud voice early in the morning, it will be counted as a curse to him.
15 An endless dripping on a rainy day and a nagging wife are alike.
16 The one who controls her controls the wind and grasps oil with his right hand.
17 Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.
18 Whoever tends a fig tree will eat its fruit, and whoever looks after his master will be honored.
19 As water reflects the face, so the heart reflects the person.
20 Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied, and people’s eyes are never satisfied.
21 A crucible for silver, and a smelter for gold, and a man for the words of his praise.
22 Though you grind a fool in a mortar with a pestle along with grain, you will not separate his foolishness from him.
23 Know well the condition of your flock, and pay attention to your herds,
24 for wealth is not forever; not even a crown lasts for all time.
25 When hay is removed and new growth appears and the grain from the hills is gathered in,
26 lambs will provide your clothing, and goats, the price of a field;
27 there will be enough goat’s milk for your food — food for your household and nourishment for your female servants.
The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Version. (Nashville: Holman Bible Publishers, 2009), Proverbs 27:1–27.
31 but those who trust in the LORD will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not faint.
The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Version. (Nashville: Holman Bible Publishers, 2009), Isaiah 40:31.
36 In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha, which is translated Dorcas. She was always doing good works and acts of charity.
37 In those days she became sick and died. After washing her, they placed her in a room upstairs.
38 Since Lydda was near Joppa, the disciples heard that Peter was there and sent two men to him who begged him, “Don’t delay in coming with us.”
39 So Peter got up and went with them. When he arrived, they led him to the room upstairs. And all the widows approached him, weeping and showing him the robes and clothes that Dorcas had made while she was with them. 40 Then Peter sent them all out of the room. He knelt down, prayed, and turning toward the body said, “Tabitha, get up!” She opened her eyes, saw Peter, and sat up.
41 He gave her his hand and helped her stand up. Then he called the saints and widows and presented her alive. 42 This became known throughout Joppa, and many believed in the Lord.

28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
