Bible in a year: Revelation 19
1 The wicked flee when no man pursueth: But the righteous are bold as a lion.
2 For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: But by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.
3 A poor man that oppresseth the poor is like a sweeping rain which leaveth no food.
4 They that forsake the law praise the wicked: But such as keep the law contend with them.
5 Evil men understand not judgment: But they that seek the LORD understand all things.
6 Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
7 Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: But he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.
8 He that by usury and unjust gain increaseth his substance, he shall gather it for him that will pity the poor.
9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.
10 Whoso causeth the righteous to go astray in an evil way, he shall fall himself into his own pit: But the upright shall have good things in possession.
11 The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out.
12 When righteous men do rejoice, there is great glory: But when the wicked rise, a man is hidden.
13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: But whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
14 Happy is the man that feareth alway: But he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief.
15 As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.
16 The prince that wanteth understanding is also a great oppressor: But he that hateth covetousness shall prolong his days.
17 A man that doeth violence to the blood of any person shall flee to the pit; let no man stay him.
18 Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: But he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.
19 He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: But he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.
20 A faithful man shall abound with blessings: But he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.
21 To have respect of persons is not good: For for a piece of bread that man will transgress.
22 He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.
23 He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.
24 Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer.
25 He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: But he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat.
26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: But whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.
27 He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: But he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.
28 When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: But when they perish, the righteous increase.

31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. 34 hWho is he that condemneth? It is Christ that idied, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

12 For this is our confidence: The testimony of our conscience is that we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you, with God-given sincerity and purity, not by fleshly wisdom but by God’s grace.
13 Now we are writing nothing to you other than what you can read and also understand. I hope you will understand completely
14 as you have partially understood us — that we are your reason for pride, as you are ours, in the day of our Lord Jesus.

15 I planned with this confidence to come to you first, so you could have a double benefit,
16 and to go on to Macedonia with your help, then come to you again from Macedonia and be given a start by you on my journey to Judea.
