Bible in a year: Revelation 20
3 Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.
The Holy Bible: King James Version, Electronic Edition of the 1900 Authorized Version. (Bellingham, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc., 2009), Psalm 141:3.
1 One who becomes stiff-necked, after many reprimands will be shattered instantly — beyond recovery.
2 When the righteous flourish, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, people groan.
3 A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father, but one who consorts with prostitutes destroys his wealth.
4 By justice a king brings stability to a land, but a man who demands “contributions” demolishes it.
5 A man who flatters his neighbor spreads a net for his feet.
6 An evil man is caught by sin, but the righteous one sings and rejoices.
7 The righteous person knows the rights of the poor, but the wicked one does not understand these concerns.
8 Mockers inflame a city, but the wise turn away anger.
9 If a wise man goes to court with a fool, there will be ranting and raving but no resolution.
10 Bloodthirsty men hate an honest person, but the upright care about him.
11 A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man holds it in check.
12 If a ruler listens to lies, all his officials will be wicked.
13 The poor and the oppressor have this in common: the LORD gives light to the eyes of both.
14 A king who judges the poor with fairness — his throne will be established forever.
15 A rod of correction imparts wisdom, but a youth left to himself is a disgrace to his mother.
16 When the wicked increase, rebellion increases, but the righteous will see their downfall.
17 Discipline your son, and it will bring you peace of mind and give you delight.
18 Without revelation a people run wild, but one who listens to instruction will be happy.
19 A slave cannot be disciplined by words; though he understands, he doesn’t respond.
20 Do you see a man who speaks too soon? There is more hope for a fool than for him.
21 A slave pampered from his youth will become arrogant later on.
22 An angry man stirs up conflict, and a hot-tempered man increases rebellion.
23 A person’s pride will humble him, but a humble spirit will gain honor.
24 To be a thief’s partner is to hate oneself; he hears the curse but will not testify.
25 The fear of man is a snare, but the one who trusts in the LORD is protected.
26 Many seek a ruler’s favor, but a man receives justice from the LORD.
27 An unjust man is detestable to the righteous, and one whose way is upright is detestable to the wicked.
The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Version. (Nashville: Holman Bible Publishers, 2009), Proverbs 29:1–27.
25 Strength and honor are her clothing, and she can laugh at the time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom and loving instruction is on her tongue.
The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Version. (Nashville: Holman Bible Publishers, 2009), Proverbs 31:25–26.
1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;
3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;
4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.
5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,
10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.
12 And when ye come into an house, salute it.
13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
The Holy Bible: King James Version, Electronic Edition of the 1900 Authorized Version. (Bellingham, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc., 2009), Matthew 10:1–20.
12 But to all who did receive Him, He gave them the right to be children of God, to those who believe in His name,
13 who were born, not of blood, or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man, but of God.
14 The Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We observed His glory, the glory as the One and Only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Version. (Nashville: Holman Bible Publishers, 2009), John 1:12–14.
9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet sfor your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
The Holy Bible: King James Version, Electronic Edition of the 1900 Authorized Version. (Bellingham, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc., 2009), 2 Corinthians 8:9.
8 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift
9 not from works, so that no one can boast.
10 For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.
The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Version. (Nashville: Holman Bible Publishers, 2009), Ephesians 2:8–10.
