Bible in a year: 1 John 3, 4
4 Where were you when I established the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding.
5 Who fixed its dimensions? Certainly you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it?
6 What supports its foundations? Or who laid its cornerstone
7 while the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
8 Who enclosed the sea behind doors when it burst from the womb,
9 when I made the clouds its garment and thick darkness its blanket,
10 when I determined its boundaries and put its bars and doors in place,
11 when I declared: “You may come this far, but no farther; your proud waves stop here”?
12 Have you ever in your life commanded the morning or assigned the dawn its place,
13 so it may seize the edges of the earth and shake the wicked out of it?
14 The earth is changed as clay is by a seal; its hills stand out like the folds of a garment.
15 Light is withheld from the wicked, and the arm raised in violence is broken.
16 Have you traveled to the sources of the sea or walked in the depths of the oceans?
17 Have the gates of death been revealed to you? Have you seen the gates of deep darkness?
18 Have you comprehended the extent of the earth? Tell Me, if you know all this.
19 Where is the road to the home of light? Do you know where darkness lives,
20 so you can lead it back to its border? Are you familiar with the paths to its home?
21 Don’t you know? You were already born; you have lived so long!
The Holy Bible: Holman Christian Standard Version. (Nashville: Holman Bible Publishers, 2009), Job 38:4–21.
1 Every wise woman bbuildeth her house: But the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.
2 He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the LORD: But he that is perverse in his ways despiseth him.
3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: But the lips of the wise shall preserve them.
4 Where no oxen are, the crib is clean: But much increase is by the strength of the ox.
5 A faithful witness will not lie: But a false witness will utter lies.
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.
10 The heart knoweth his own bitterness; and a stranger doth not intermeddle with his joy.
11 The house of the wicked shall be overthrown: But the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish.
12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
13 Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth is heaviness.
14 The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: And a good man shall be satisfied from himself.
15 The simple believeth every word: But the prudent man looketh well to his going.
16 A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: But the fool rageth, and is confident.
17 He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly: And a man of wicked devices is hated.
18 The simple inherit folly: But the prudent are crowned with knowledge.
19 The evil bow before the good; and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.
20 The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: But the rich hath many friends.
21 He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth: But he that hath mercy on the poor, happy is he.
22 Do they not err that devise evil? But mercy and truth shall be to them that devise good.
23 In all labour there is profit: But the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.
24 The crown of the wise is their riches: But the foolishness of fools is folly.
25 A true witness delivereth souls: But a deceitful witness speaketh lies.
26 In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: And his children shall have a place of refuge.
27 The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
28 In the multitude of people is the king’s honour: But in the want of people is the destruction of the prince.
29 He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: But he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly.
30 A sound heart is the life of the flesh: But envy the rottenness of the bones.
31 He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: But he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.
32 The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: But the righteous hath hope in his death.
33 Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding: But that which is in the midst of fools is made known.
34 Righteousness exalteth a nation: But sin is a reproach to any people.
35 The king’s favour is toward a wise servant: But his wrath is against him that causeth shame.

18 There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not:
19 The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid.

32 And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.
33 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.
34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
35 And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God.
36 And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar,
37 And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.
38 And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
