32 So they gave a negative report to the Israelites about the land they had scouted: “The land we passed through to explore is one that devours its inhabitants, and all the people we saw in it are men of great size.
The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Version. (Nashville: Holman Bible Publishers, 2009), Numbers 13:32.
1 A false balance is abomination to the LORD: But a just weight is his delight.
2 When pride cometh, then cometh shame: But with the lowly is wisdom.
3 The integrity of the upright shall guide them: But the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.
4 Riches profit not in the day of wrath: But righteousness delivereth from death.
5 The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: But the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.
6 The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: But transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness.
7 When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: And the hope of unjust men perisheth.
8 The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.
9 An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: But through knowledge shall the just be delivered.
10 When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: And when the wicked perish, there is shouting.
11 By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: But it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
12 He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: But a man of understanding holdeth his peace.
13 A talebearer revealeth secrets: But he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
14 Where no counsel is, the people fall: But in the multitude of counsellers there is safety.
15 He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it: And he that hateth suretiship is sure.
16 A gracious woman retaineth honour: And strong men retain riches.
17 The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: But he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.
18 The wicked worketh a deceitful work: But to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.
19 As righteousness tendeth to life: So he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death.
20 They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the LORD: But such as are upright in their way are his delight.
21 Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: But the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
22 As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.
23 The desire of the righteous is only good: But the expectation of the wicked is wrath.
24 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.
25 The liberal soul shall be made fat: And he that watereth shall be watered also himself.
26 He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: But blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.
27 He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: But he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.
28 He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: But the righteous shall flourish as a branch.
29 He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: And the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.
30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
31 Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: Much more the wicked and the sinner.

6 A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: But knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth.
7 Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.
8 The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way: But the folly of fools is deceit.
9 Fools make a mock at sin: But among the righteous there is favour.

6 Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness are blessed, for they will be filled.
The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Version. (Nashville: Holman Bible Publishers, 2009), Matthew 5:6.
13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
15 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.
16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
17 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.
19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?
20 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
21 But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
22 These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.
24 Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner.
25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
26 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?
27 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?
28 Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples.
29 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.
30 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.
31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.
33 If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.
34 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?
36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?
37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
The Holy Bible: King James Version, Electronic Edition of the 1900 Authorized Version. (Bellingham, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc., 2009), 2 Timothy 3:16–17.
1 I solemnly charge you before God and Christ Jesus, who is going to judge the living and the dead, and because of His appearing and His kingdom:
2 Proclaim the message; persist in it whether convenient or not; rebuke, correct, and encourage with great patience and teaching.
3 For the time will come when they will not tolerate sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, will multiply teachers for themselves because they have an itch to hear something new.
4 They will turn away from hearing the truth and will turn aside to myths.
5 But as for you, be serious about everything, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
