In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
The Holy Bible: King James Version, Electronic Edition of the 1900 Authorized Version. (Bellingham, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc., 2009), Genesis 1:1.
3 Never let loyalty and faithfulness leave you. Tie them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 Then you will find favor and high regard in the sight of God and man.
The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Version. (Nashville: Holman Bible Publishers, 2009), Proverbs 3:3–4.
1 Better a dry crust with peace than a house full of feasting with strife.
2 A wise servant will rule over a disgraceful son and share an inheritance among brothers.
3 A crucible for silver, and a smelter for gold, and the LORD is the tester of hearts.
4 A wicked person listens to malicious talk; a liar pays attention to a destructive tongue.
5 The one who mocks the poor insults his Maker, and one who rejoices over calamity will not go unpunished.
6 Grandchildren are the crown of the elderly, and the pride of sons is their fathers.
7 Eloquent words are not appropriate on a fool’s lips; how much worse are lies for a ruler.
8 A bribe seems like a magic stone to its owner; wherever he turns, he succeeds.
9 Whoever conceals an offense promotes love, but whoever gossips about it separates friends.
10 A rebuke cuts into a perceptive person more than a hundred lashes into a fool.
11 An evil man seeks only rebellion; a cruel messenger will be sent against him.
12 Better for a man to meet a bear robbed of her cubs than a fool in his foolishness.
13 If anyone returns evil for good, evil will never depart from his house.
14 To start a conflict is to release a flood; stop the dispute before it breaks out.
15 Acquitting the guilty and condemning the just — both are detestable to the LORD.
16 Why does a fool have money in his hand with no intention of buying wisdom?
17 A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a difficult time.
18 One without sense enters an agreement and puts up security for his friend.
19 One who loves to offend loves strife; one who builds a high threshold invites injury.
20 One with a twisted mind will not succeed, and one with deceitful speech will fall into ruin.
21 A man fathers a fool to his own sorrow; the father of a fool has no joy.
22 A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.
23 A wicked man secretly takes a bribe to subvert the course of justice.
24 Wisdom is the focus of the perceptive, but a fool’s eyes roam to the ends of the earth.
25 A foolish son is grief to his father and bitterness to the one who bore him.
26 It is certainly not good to fine an innocent person or to beat a noble for his honesty.
27 The intelligent person restrains his words, and one who keeps a cool head is a man of understanding.
28 Even a fool is considered wise when he keeps silent, discerning when he seals his lips.
The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Version. (Nashville: Holman Bible Publishers, 2009), Proverbs 17:1–28.
17 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.
18 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off:
19 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.
20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house. 21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.
23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.
The Holy Bible: King James Version, Electronic Edition of the 1900 Authorized Version. (Bellingham, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc., 2009), John 11:17–27.
2 For I am jealous over you with a godly jealousy, because I have promised you in marriage to one husband—to present a pure virgin to Christ.
3 But I fear that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your minds may be seduced from a complete and pure devotion to Christ.
The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Version. (Nashville: Holman Bible Publishers, 2009), 2 Corinthians 11:2–3.
16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The urgent request of a righteous person is very powerful in its effect.
The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Version. (Nashville: Holman Bible Publishers, 2009), James 5:16.
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
The Holy Bible: King James Version, Electronic Edition of the 1900 Authorized Version. (Bellingham, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc., 2009), Revelation 22:19.
