deliver my soul-JESUSbible3

Psalms

120,1 A Song of Ascents. {N}
In my distress I called unto the LORD, and He answered me.

120,2 O LORD, deliver my soul from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.

120,3 What shall be given unto thee, and what shall be done more unto thee, thou deceitful tongue?

120,4 Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of broom.

120,5 Woe is me, that I sojourn with Meshech, that I dwell beside the tents of Kedar!

120,6 My soul hath* full long had her dwelling with him* that hateth peace.

120,7 I am all peace; but when I speak, they are for war. {P}

*v 6 – ‘him that hates peace’

Who is he that hates peace?

In distress my tongue will cry to the LORD and He will save me (v.1). Like, Peter sinking into the Sea of Galilee.

Before confessing Christ as our Eternal [jehovah] LORD, our tongue spoke of hate – hate for peace.
He that hates peace who used to dwell in me was the tongue of unbelief.

Watch the tongue. If it is not praise, don’t speak it.

The March 1 Bible

Part I. Leviticus
2,4 And when thou bringest a meal-offering baked in the oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, or unleavened wafers spread with oil. {S}

2,5 And if thy offering be a meal-offering baked on a griddle, it shall be of fine flour unleavened, mingled with oil.

2,6 Thou shalt break it in pieces, and pour oil thereon; it is a meal-offering. {S}

2,7 And if thy offering be a meal-offering of the stewing-pan, it shall be made of fine flour with oil.

2,8 And thou shalt bring the meal-offering that is made of these things unto the LORD; and it shall be presented unto the priest, and he shall bring it unto the altar.

2,9 And the priest shall take off from the meal-offering the memorial-part thereof, and shall make it smoke upon the altar–
an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

2,10 But that which is left of the meal-offering shall be Aaron’s and his sons’;
it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the LORD made by fire.

2,11 No meal-offering, which ye shall bring unto the LORD, shall be made with leaven; for ye shall make no leaven, nor any honey, smoke as an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

2,12 As an offering of first-fruits ye may bring them unto the LORD; but they shall not come up for a sweet savour on the altar.

2,13 And every meal-offering of thine shalt thou season with salt; neither shalt thou suffer the salt of the covenant of thy God to be lacking from thy meal-offering; with all thy offerings thou shalt offer salt. {S}

2,14 And if thou bring a meal-offering of first-fruits unto the LORD, thou shalt bring for the meal-offering of thy first-fruits corn in the ear parched with fire, even groats of the fresh ear.

2,15 And thou shalt put oil upon it, and lay frankincense thereon; it is a meal-offering.

2,16 And the priest shall make the memorial-part of it smoke, even of the groats thereof, and of the oil thereof, with all the frankincense thereof; it is an offering made by fire unto the LORD. {P}

3,1 And if his offering be a sacrifice of peace-offerings:
if he offer of the herd, whether male or female, he shall offer it without blemish before the LORD.

3,2 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of his offering, and kill it at the door of the tent of meeting; and Aaron’s sons the priests shall dash the blood against the altar round about.

3,3 And he shall present of the sacrifice of peace-offerings an offering made by fire unto the LORD:
the fat that covereth the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards,

Part II. Samuel

1 9,26 And they arose early; and it came to pass about the break of day, that Samuel called to Saul on the housetop, saying:
‘Up, that I may send thee away.’
And Saul arose, and they went out both of them, he and Samuel, abroad.

1 9,27 As they were going down at the end of the city, Samuel said to Saul:
‘Bid the servant pass on before us–
and he passed on–
but stand thou still at this time, that I may cause thee to hear the word of God.’ {P}

1 10,1 Then Samuel took the vial of oil, and poured it upon his head, and kissed him, and said:
‘Is it not that the LORD hath anointed thee to be prince over His inheritance?

1 10,2 When thou art departed from me to-day, then thou shalt find two men by the tomb of Rachel, in the border of Benjamin at Zelzah; and they will say unto thee:
The asses which thou wentest to seek are found; and, lo, thy father hath left off caring for the asses, and is anxious concerning you, saying:
What shall I do for my son?

1 10,3 Then shalt thou go on forward from thence, and thou shalt come to the terebinth of Tabor, and there shall meet thee there three men going up to God to Beth-el, one carrying three kids, and another carrying three loaves of bread, and another carrying a bottle of wine.

1 10,4 And they will salute thee, and give thee two cakes of bread; which thou shalt receive of their hand.

1 10,5 After that thou shalt come to the hill of God, where is the garrison of the Philistines; and it shall come to pass, when thou art come thither to the city, that thou shalt meet a band of prophets coming down from the high place with a psaltery, and a timbrel, and a pipe, and a harp, before them; and they will be prophesying.

1 10,6 And the spirit of the LORD will come mightily upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man.

1 10,7 And let it be, when these signs are come unto thee, that thou do as thy hand shall find; for God is with thee.

1 10,8 And thou shalt go down before me to Gilgal; and, behold, I will come down unto thee, to offer burnt-offerings, and to sacrifice sacrifices of peace-offerings; seven days shalt thou tarry, till I come unto thee, and tell thee what thou shalt do.’

1 10,9 And it was so, that when he had turned his back to go from Samuel, God gave him another heart; and all those signs came to pass that day. {S}

1 10,10 And when they came thither to the hill, behold, a band of prophets met him; and the spirit of God came mightily upon him, and he prophesied among them.

1 10,11 And it came to pass, when all that knew him beforetime saw that, behold, he prophesied with the prophets, {S} then the people said one to another:
‘What is this that is come unto the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?’

1 10,12 And one of the same place answered and said:
‘And who is their father?’
Therefore it became a proverb:
‘Is Saul also among the prophets?’

1 10,13 And when he had made an end of prophesying, he came to the high place.

1 10,14 And Saul’s uncle said unto him and to his servant:
‘Whither went ye?’
And he said:
‘To seek the asses; and when we saw that they were not found, we came to Samuel.’

1 10,15 And Saul’s uncle said:
‘Tell me, I pray thee, what Samuel said unto you.’

1 10,16 And Saul said unto his uncle:
‘He told us plainly that the asses were found.’
But concerning the matter of the kingdom, whereof Samuel spoke, he told him not. {P}

1 10,17 And Samuel called the people together unto the LORD to Mizpah.

1 10,18 And he said unto the children of Israel: {P}
‘Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel:
I brought up Israel out of Egypt, and I delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of all the kingdoms that oppressed you.

1 10,19 But ye have this day rejected your God, who Himself saveth you out of all your calamities and your distresses; and ye have said unto Him:
Nay, but set a king over us. Now therefore present yourselves before the LORD by your tribes, and by your thousands.’

1 10,20 So Samuel brought all the tribes of Israel near, and the tribe of Benjamin was taken.

1 10,21 And he brought the tribe of Benjamin near by their families, and the family of the Matrites was taken; and Saul the son of Kish was taken; but when they sought him, he could not be found.

1 10,22 Therefore they asked of the LORD further:
‘Is there yet a man come hither?’ {S} And the LORD answered:
‘Behold, he hath hid himself among the baggage.’

1 10,23 And they ran and fetched him thence; and when he stood among the people, he was higher than any of the people from his shoulders and upward.

Part III. Psalms

72,12 For he will deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.

72,13 He will have pity on the poor and needy, and the souls of the needy he will save.

72,14 He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence, and precious will their blood be in his sight;

72,15 That they may live, and that he may give them of the gold of Sheba, {N}
that they may pray for him continually, yea, bless him all the day.

72,16 May he be as a rich cornfield in the land upon the top of the mountains; {N}
may his fruit rustle like Lebanon; and may they blossom out of the city like grass of the earth.

72,17 May his name endure for ever; may his name be continued as long as the sun; {N}
may men also bless themselves by him; may all nations call him happy.

72,18 Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things;

72,19 And blessed be His glorious name for ever; {N}
and let the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen, and Amen.

72,20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended. {P}

73,1 A Psalm of Asaph. {N}
Surely God is good to Israel, even to such as are pure in heart.

73,2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.

73,3 For I was envious at the arrogant, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

73,4 For there are no pangs at their death, and their body is sound.

73,5 In the trouble of man they are not; neither are they plagued like men.

73,6 Therefore pride is as a chain about their neck; violence covereth them as a garment.

73,7 Their eyes stand forth from fatness; they are gone beyond the imaginations of their heart.

73,8 They scoff, and in wickedness utter oppression; they speak as if there were none on high.

73,9 They have set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.

73,10 Therefore His people return hither; and waters of fullness are drained out by them.

Part IV. Mark 5

26 and who had suffered much from many physicians, and had expended all she possessed, and was not profited, but was even the more afflicted;

27 when she heard of Jesus, came behind him in the press of the crowd, and touched his garment

28 For she said:
If I but touch his garment, I shall live.

29 And immediately the fountain of her blood dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her plague.

30 And Jesus at once knew in himself, that virtue had issued from him: and he turned to the throng, and said:
Who touched my clothes ?

31 And his disciples said to him:
Thou seest the throngs that press upon thee; and sayest thou, Who touched me ?

32 And he looked around, to see who had done this.

33 And the woman, fearing and trembling, for she knew what had taken place in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.

34 And he said to her: My daughter, thy faith hath made thee live: go in peace; and be thou healed of thy plague.

35 And while he was speaking, some domestics of the ruler of the synagogue came, and said:
Thy daughter is dead:
why therefore troublest thou the teacher ?

36 But Jesus heard the word they spoke, and said to the ruler of the synagogue:
Fear not; only believe.

37 And he suffered no one to go with him, except Simon Cephas, and James, and John the brother of James.

38 And they came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue; and he saw, that they were in a tumult, and weeping, and howling.

39 And he entered in and said to them:
Why are ye in a tumult, and weep? The maid is not dead, but is asleep.

40 And they laughed at him. But Jesus put them all out. And he took the maids father, and her mother, and those that accompanied him, and entered into where the maid lay.

41 And he took the maid’s hand, and said to her:
Maiden, arise.

42 And immediately the maid arose, and walked; for she was twelve years old. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.

43 And he enjoined it upon them much, that no one should know of it. And he directed, that they should give her to eat.

The Annunciation of Mark – Chapter 6

1 And Jesus departed from there and came to his own city, and his disciples attended him.

2 And when the sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue. And many who heard [him] were astonished, and said:
Whence hath he obtained these things ? And, what wisdom is this, which is given to him! and that such mighty works are done by his hands!

3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, and the brother of James and of Joses and of Judas and of Simon ? And are not his sisters here with us? And they were stumbled in him.

Part I. Leviticus

1,5 And he shall kill the bullock before the LORD; and Aaron’s sons, the priests, shall present the blood, and dash the blood round about against the altar that is at the door of the tent of meeting.

1,6 And he shall flay the burnt-offering, and cut it into its pieces.

1,7 And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and lay wood in order upon the fire.

1,8 And Aaron’s sons, the priests, shall lay the pieces, and the head, and the suet, in order upon the wood that is on the fire which is upon the altar;

1,9 but its inwards and its legs shall he wash with water; and the priest shall make the whole smoke on the altar, for a burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD. {S}

1,10 And if his offering be of the flock, whether of the sheep, or of the goats, for a burnt-offering, he shall offer it a male without blemish.

1,11 And he shall kill it on the side of the altar northward before the LORD; and Aaron’s sons, the priests, shall dash its blood against the altar round about.

1,12 And he shall cut it into its pieces; and the priest shall lay them, with its head and its suet, in order on the wood that is on the fire which is upon the altar.

1,13 But the inwards and the legs shall he wash with water; and the priest shall offer the whole, and make it smoke upon the altar; it is a burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD. {P}

1,14 And if his offering to the LORD be a burnt-offering of fowls, then he shall bring his offering of turtle-doves, or of young pigeons.

1,15 And the priest shall bring it unto the altar, and pinch off its head, and make it smoke on the altar; and the blood thereof shall be drained out on the side of the altar.

1,16 And he shall take away its crop with the feathers thereof, and cast it beside the altar on the east part, in the place of the ashes.

1,17 And he shall rend it by the wings thereof, but shall not divide it asunder; and the priest shall make it smoke upon the altar, upon the wood that is upon the fire; it is a burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD. {S}

2,1 And when any one bringeth a meal-offering unto the LORD, his offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil upon it, and put frankincense thereon.

2,2 And he shall bring it to Aaron’s sons the priests; and he shall take thereout his handful of the fine flour thereof, and of the oil thereof, together with all the frankincense thereof; and the priest shall make the memorial-part thereof smoke upon the altar, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

2,3 But that which is left of the meal-offering shall be Aaron’s and his sons’; it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the LORD made by fire. {S}


Part II. Samuel

1 9,1 Now there was a man of Benjamin, whose name was Kish, the son of Abiel, the son of Zeror, the son of Becorath, the son of Aphiah, the son of a Benjamite, a mighty man of valour.

1 9,2 And he had a son, whose name was Saul, young and goodly, and there was not among the children of Israel a goodlier person than he: from his shoulders and upward he was higher than any of the people.

1 9,3 Now the asses of Kish Saul’s father were lost. And Kish said to Saul his son:

‘Take now one of the servants with thee, and arise, go seek the asses.’

1 9,4 And he passed through the hill-country of Ephraim, and passed through the land of Shalishah, but they found them not; then they passed through the land of Shaalim, and there they were not; and he passed through the land of the Benjamites, but they found them not.

1 9,5 When they were come to the land of Zuph, Saul said to his servant that was with him:

‘Come and let us return; lest my father leave caring for the asses, and become anxious concerning us.’

1 9,6 And he said unto him:

‘Behold now, there is in this city a man of God, and he is a man that is held in honour; all that he saith cometh surely to pass; now let us go thither; peradventure he can tell us concerning our journey whereon we go.’

1 9,7 Then said Saul to his servant:

‘But, behold, if we go, what shall we bring the man? for the bread is spent in our vessels, and there is not a present to bring to the man of God; what have we?’

1 9,8 And the servant answered Saul again, and said:

‘Behold, I have in my hand the fourth part of a shekel of silver, that will I give to the man of God, to tell us our way.’–

1 9,9 Beforetime in Israel, when a man went to inquire of God, thus he said:

‘Come and let us go to the seer’;

for he that is now called a prophet was beforetime called a seer.–

1 9,10 Then said Saul to his servant:

‘Well said; come, let us go.’

So they went unto the city where the man of God was.

1 9,11 As they went up the ascent to the city, they found young maidens going out to draw water, and said unto them:

‘Is the seer here?’

1 9,12 And they answered them, and said:

‘He is; behold, he is before thee; make haste now, for he is come to-day into the city; for the people have a sacrifice to-day in the high place.

1 9,13 As soon as ye are come into the city, ye shall straightway find him, before he go up to the high place to eat; for the people will not eat until he come, because he doth bless the sacrifice; and afterwards they eat that are bidden. Now therefore get you up; for at this time ye shall find him.’

1 9,14 And they went up to the city; and as they came within the city, behold, Samuel came out toward them, to go up to the high place. {S}

1 9,15 Now the LORD had revealed unto Samuel a day before Saul came, saying:

1 9,16 ‘To-morrow about this time I will send thee a man out of the land of Benjamin, and thou shalt anoint him to be prince over My people Israel, and he shall save My people out of the hand of the Philistines; for I have looked upon My people, because their cry is come unto Me.’

1 9,17 And when Samuel saw Saul, the LORD spoke unto him:

‘Behold the man of whom I said unto thee:

This same shall have authority over My people.’

1 9,18 Then Saul drew near to Samuel in the gate, and said:

‘Tell me, I pray thee, where the seer’s house is.’

1 9,19 And Samuel answered Saul, and said:

‘I am the seer; go up before me unto the high place, for ye shall eat with me to-day; and in the morning I will let thee go, and will tell thee all that is in thy heart.

1 9,20 And as for thine asses that were lost three days ago, set not thy mind on them; for they are found. And on whom is all the desire of Israel? Is it not on thee, and on all thy father’s house?’ {S}

1 9,21 And Saul answered and said:

‘Am not I a Benjamite, of the smallest of the tribes of Israel? and my family the least of all the families of the tribe of Benjamin? wherefore then speakest thou to me after this manner?’ {S}

1 9,22 And Samuel took Saul and his servant, and brought them into the chamber, and made them sit in the chiefest place among them that were bidden, who were about thirty persons.

1 9,23 And Samuel said unto the cook:

‘Bring the portion which I gave thee, of which I said unto thee: Set it by thee.’

1 9,24 And the cook took up the thigh, and that which was upon it, and set it before Saul. And [Samuel] said:

‘Behold that which hath been reserved! set it before thee and eat; because unto the appointed time hath it been kept for thee, for I said:

I have invited the people.’

So Saul did eat with Samuel that day.

1 9,25 And when they were come down from the high place into the city, he spoke with Saul upon the housetop.


Part III. Psalms

71,17 O God, Thou hast taught me from my youth; and until now do I declare Thy wondrous works.

71,18 And even unto old age and hoary hairs, O God, forsake me not; {N}

until I have declared Thy strength unto the next generation, Thy might to every one that is to come.

71,19 Thy righteousness also, O God, which reacheth unto high heaven; {N}

Thou who hast done great things, O God, who is like unto Thee?

71,20 Thou, who hast made me to see many and sore troubles, {N}

wilt quicken me again, and bring me up again from the depths of the earth.

71,21 Thou wilt increase my greatness, and turn and comfort me.

71,22 I also will give thanks unto Thee with the psaltery, even unto Thy truth, O my God; {N}

I will sing praises unto Thee with the harp, O Thou Holy One of Israel.

71,23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing praises unto Thee; and my soul, which Thou hast redeemed.

71,24 My tongue also shall tell of Thy righteousness all the day; {N}

for they are ashamed, for they are abashed, that seek my hurt. {P}

72,1 [A Psalm] of Solomon.

Give the king Thy judgments, O God, and Thy righteousness unto the king’s son;

72,2 That he may judge Thy people with righteousness, and Thy poor with justice.

72,3 Let the mountains bear peace to the people, and the hills, through righteousness.

72,4 May he judge the poor of the people, and save the children of the needy, and crush the oppressor.

72,5 They shall fear Thee while the sun endureth, and so long as the moon, throughout all generations.

72,6 May he come down like rain upon the mown grass, as showers that water the earth.

72,7 In his days let the righteous flourish, and abundance of peace, till the moon be no more.

72,8 May he have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the River unto the ends of the earth.

72,9 Let them that dwell in the wilderness bow before him; and his enemies lick the dust.

72,10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall render tribute; {N}

the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.

72,11 Yea, all kings shall prostrate themselves before him; all nations shall serve him.


Part IV. Mark 5

5 And continually, by night and by day, he was in the place of sepulchres, and cried and wounded himself with stones.

6 And when he saw Jesus at a distance, he ran and worshipped him;

7 and cried with a loud voice, and said:

What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the High God ? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.

8 For he had said to him:

Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.

9 And he demanded of him:

What is thy name? And he replied to him:

Our name is Legion; for we are many.

10 And he besought him much, that he would not send him out of the country.

11 And there was there by the mountain, a great herd of swine grazing.

12 And the demons besought him, and said:

Send us upon those swine, that we may enter them.

13 And he permitted them. And those unclean spirits went out, and entered the swine:

and the herd, of about two thousand, ran to a precipice, and fell into the sea, and were strangled in the waters.

14 And they who tended them, fled and told [it] in the city and in the villages:

and they came out to see what had occurred.

15 And:

they came to Jesus, and saw him in whom the demons had been, him in whom had been the legion, clothed, and sober, and sitting; and they were afraid.

16 And those who had seen [it] told them how it occurred to him who had the demons, and also concerning the swine.

17 And they began to request him, that he would go from their border.

18 And as he ascended the ship, the late demoniac requested that he might continue with him.

19 And he suffered him not, but said to him:

Go home to thy people, and tell them what the Lord hath done for thee, and hath compassionated thee.

20 And he went, and began to publish in Decapolis, what Jesus had done for him. And they were all amazed.

21 And when Jesus had passed by ship to the other side, great multitudes again assembled about him as he was on the shore of the sea.

22 And one of the rulers of the synagogue, whose name was Jairus, came, and, on seeing him, fell at his feet,

23 and besought him much, and said to him:

My daughter is very sick; but come and lay thy hand on her, and she will be cured, and will live.

24 And Jesus went with him; and a great company attended him, and pressed upon him.

25 And a woman who had had a defluxion of blood twelve years,

119,28 My soul melteth away for heaviness; sustain me according unto Thy word.
119,29 Remove from me the way of falsehood; and grant me Thy law graciously.
119,30 I have chosen the way of faithfulness; Thine ordinances have I set [before me].
119,31 I cleave unto Thy testimonies; O LORD, put me not to shame.
119,32 I will run the way of Thy commandments, for Thou dost enlarge my heart. {P}

119,33 HE.
Teach me, O LORD, the way of Thy statutes; and I will keep it at every step.

119,34 Give me understanding, that I keep Thy law and observe it with my whole heart.

119,35 Make me to tread in the path of Thy commandments; for therein do I delight.
119,36 Incline my heart unto Thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.
119,37 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity, and quicken me in Thy ways.
119,38 Confirm Thy word unto Thy servant, which pertaineth unto the fear of Thee.
119,39 Turn away my reproach which I dread; for Thine ordinances are good.
119,40 Behold, I have longed after Thy precepts; quicken me in Thy righteousness. {P}

119,41 VAU.
Let Thy mercies also come unto me, O LORD, even Thy salvation, according to Thy word;
119,42 That I may have an answer for him that taunteth me; for I trust in Thy word.

119,43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I hope in Thine ordinances;
119,44 So shall I observe Thy law continually for ever and ever;
119,45 And I will walk at ease, for I have sought Thy precepts;
119,46 I will also speak of Thy testimonies before kings, and will not be ashamed.
119,47 And I will delight myself in Thy commandments, which I have loved.
119,48 I will lift up my hands also unto Thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in Thy statutes. {P}

119,49 ZAIN.
Remember the word unto Thy servant, because Thou hast made me to hope.
119,50 This is my comfort in my affliction, that Thy word hath quickened me.

119,51 The proud have had me greatly in derision; yet have I not turned aside from Thy law.
119,52 I have remembered Thine ordinances which are of old, O LORD, and have comforted myself.
119,53 Burning indignation hath taken hold upon me, because of the wicked that forsake Thy law.
119,54 Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
119,55 I have remembered Thy name, O LORD, in the night, and have observed Thy law.
119,56 This I have had, that I have kept Thy precepts. {P}

119,57 HETH.
My portion is the LORD, I have said that I would observe Thy words.

119,58 I have entreated Thy favour with my whole heart; be gracious unto me according to Thy word.
119,59 I considered my ways, and turned my feet unto Thy testimonies.
119,60 I made haste, and delayed not, to observe Thy commandments.
119,61 The bands of the wicked have enclosed me; but I have not forgotten Thy law.
119,62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto Thee because of Thy righteous ordinances.
119,63 I am a companion of all them that fear Thee, and of them that observe Thy precepts.
119,64 The earth, O LORD, is full of Thy mercy; teach me Thy statutes. {P}

119,65 TETH.
Thou hast dealt well with Thy servant, O LORD, according unto Thy word.

119,66 Teach me good discernment and knowledge; for I have believed in Thy commandments.
119,67 Before I was afflicted, I did err; but now I observe Thy word.
119,68 Thou art good, and doest good; teach me Thy statutes.
119,69 The proud have forged a lie against me; but I with my whole heart will keep Thy precepts.
119,70 Their heart is gross like fat; but I delight in Thy law.
119,71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted, in order that I might learn Thy statutes.
119,72 The law of Thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver. {P}

119,73 IOD.
Thy hands have made me and fashioned me; give me understanding, that I may learn Thy commandments.

119,74 They that fear Thee shall see me and be glad, because I have hope in Thy word.
119,75 I know, O LORD, that Thy judgments are righteous, and that in faithfulness Thou hast afflicted me.
119,76 Let, I pray Thee, Thy lovingkindness be ready to comfort me, according to Thy promise unto Thy servant.
119,77 Let Thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live; for Thy law is my delight.
119,78 Let the proud be put to shame, for they have distorted my cause with falsehood; but I will meditate in Thy precepts.
119,79 Let those that fear Thee return unto me, and they that know Thy testimonies.
119,80 Let my heart be undivided in Thy statutes, in order that I may not be put to shame. {P}

119,81 CAPH.
My soul pineth for Thy salvation; in Thy word do I hope.

119,82 Mine eyes fail for Thy word, saying:
‘When wilt Thou comfort me?’
119,83 For I am become like a wine-skin in the smoke; yet do I not forget Thy statutes.
119,84 How many are the days of Thy servant? When wilt Thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?
119,85 The proud have digged pits for me, which is not according to Thy law.
119,86 All Thy commandments are faithful; they persecute me for nought; help Thou me.
119,87 They had almost consumed me upon earth; but as for me, I forsook not Thy precepts.
119,88 Quicken me after Thy lovingkindness, and I will observe the testimony of Thy mouth. {P}

119,89 LAMED.
For ever, O LORD, Thy word standeth fast in heaven.

119,90 Thy faithfulness is unto all generations; Thou hast established the earth, and it standeth.
119,91 They stand this day according to Thine ordinances; for all things are Thy servants.
119,92 Unless Thy law had been my delight, I should then have perished in mine affliction.
119,93 I will never forget Thy precepts; for with them Thou hast quickened me.
119,94 I am Thine, save me; for I have sought Thy precepts.
119,95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me; but I will consider Thy testimonies.
119,96 I have seen an end to every purpose; but Thy commandment is exceeding broad. {P}

119,116 Uphold me according unto Thy word, that I may live; and put me not to shame in my hope.
119,117 Support Thou me, and I shall be saved; and I will occupy myself with Thy statutes continually.
119,118 Thou hast made light of all them that err from Thy statutes; for their deceit is vain.
119,119 Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth like dross; therefore I love Thy testimonies.
119,120 My flesh shuddereth for fear of Thee; and I am afraid of Thy judgments. {P}

119,121 AIN.
I have done justice and righteousness; leave me not to mine oppressors.

119,122 Be surety for Thy servant for good; let not the proud oppress me.

119,124 Deal with Thy servant according unto Thy mercy, and teach me Thy statutes.
119,125 I am Thy servant, give me understanding, that I may know Thy testimonies.
119,126 It is time for the LORD to work; they have made void Thy law.

119,136 Mine eyes run down with rivers of water, because they observe not Thy law. {P}

119,137 TZADE.
Righteous art Thou, O LORD, and upright are Thy judgments.

119,138 Thou hast commanded Thy testimonies in righteousness and exceeding faithfulness.
119,139 My zeal hath undone me, because mine adversaries have forgotten Thy words.
119,140 Thy word is tried to the uttermost, and Thy servant loveth it.

I will not fear-JESUSbible3

Weekend Psalms2/26/2016

117,1 O praise the LORD, all ye nations; laud Him, all ye peoples.

117,2 For His mercy is great toward us; and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. {N}
Hallelujah.

Happy Sabbath 2/27/2016

118,1 ‘O give thanks unto the LORD, for He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever.’

118,2 So let Israel now say, for His mercy endureth for ever,

118,3 So let the house of Aaron now say, for His mercy endureth for ever.

118,4 So let them now that fear the LORD say, for His mercy endureth for ever.

118,5 Out of my straits I called upon the LORD; He answered me with great enlargement.

118,6 The LORD is for me; I will not fear; what can man do unto me?

118,7 The LORD is for me as my helper; and I shall gaze upon them* that hate me.

118,8 It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.

118,9 It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes.

118,10 All nations compass me about; verily, in the name of the LORD I will cut them off.

118,11 They compass me about, yea, they compass me about; verily, in the name of the LORD I will cut them off.

118,12 They compass me about like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns; {N}
verily, in the name of the LORD I will cut them off.

118,13 Thou didst thrust sore at me that I might fall; but the LORD helped me.

118,14 The LORD is my strength and song; and He is become my salvation.

118,15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous; the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.

118,16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted; the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.

118,17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.

118,18 The LORD hath chastened me sore; but He hath not given me over unto death.

118,19 Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will enter into them, I will give thanks unto the LORD.

118,20 This is the gate of the LORD; the righteous shall enter into it.

118,21 I will give thanks unto Thee, for Thou hast answered me, and art become my salvation.

118,22 The stone which the builders rejected is become the chief corner-stone.

118,23 This is the LORD’S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.

118,24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

118,25 We beseech Thee, O LORD, save now! We beseech Thee, O LORD, make us now to prosper!

118,26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD; we bless you out of the house of the LORD.

118,27 The LORD is God, and hath given us light; order the festival procession with boughs, even unto the horns of the altar.

118,28 Thou art my God, and I will give thanks unto Thee; Thou art my God, I will exalt Thee.

118,29 O give thanks unto the LORD, for He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever. {P}

*Comment:
118,7 – This one, i do hate.

Do you have enemies?

You have one enemy.

Do you love your enemy? If your friend leaves you, he is not your enemy. He is just an an awol friend. Love him anyway.

The enemy, on the other hand, was never your friend. Will never be your friend. Will always be the enemy. This enemy is the enemy of life and of your soul. He hates you and your soul.

This ‘enemy’ cannot beloved. He will be destroyed. And you will see it. This is also Good News.

That is the Gospel: restoration and vindication. Justice and peace.
Christ restored you, and will destroy your enemy.

The February 26 Bible

Part I. Exodus

40,11 And thou shalt anoint the laver and its base, and sanctify it.

40,12 And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the tent of meeting, and shalt wash them with water.

40,13 And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments; and thou shalt anoint him, and sanctify him, that he may minister unto Me in the priest’s office.

40,14 And thou shalt bring his sons, and put tunics upon them.

40,15 And thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that they may minister unto Me in the priest’s office; and their anointing shall be to them for an everlasting priesthood throughout their generations.’

40,16 Thus did Moses; according to all that the LORD commanded him, so did he. {S}

40,17 And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.

40,18 And Moses reared up the tabernacle, and laid its sockets, and set up the boards thereof, and put in the bars thereof, and reared up its pillars.

40,19 And he spread the tent over the tabernacle, and put the covering of the tent above upon it; as the LORD commanded Moses. {S}

40,20 And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the staves on the ark, and put the ark-cover above upon the ark.

40,21 And he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the veil of the screen, and screened the ark of the testimony; as the LORD commanded Moses. {S}

40,22 And he put the table in the tent of meeting, upon the side of the tabernacle northward, without the veil.

40,23 And he set a row of bread in order upon it before the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses. {S}

40,24 And he put the candlestick in the tent of meeting, over against the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward.

40,25 And he lighted the lamps before the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses. {S}

40,26 And he put the golden altar in the tent of meeting before the veil;

Part II. Samuel

1 6,11 And they put the ark of the LORD upon the cart, and the coffer with the mice of gold and the images of their emerods.

1 6,12 And the kine took the straight way by the way to Beth-shemesh; they went along the highway, lowing as they went, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left; and the lords of the Philistines went after them unto the border of Beth-shemesh.

1 6,13 And they of Beth-shemesh were reaping their wheat harvest in the valley; and they lifted up their eyes, and saw the ark, and rejoiced to see it.

1 6,14 And the cart came into the field of Joshua the Beth-shemite, and stood there, where there was a great stone; and they cleaved the wood of the cart, and offered up the kine for a burnt-offering unto the LORD. {S}

1 6,15 And the Levites took down the ark of the LORD, and the coffer that was with it, wherein the jewels of gold were, and put them on the great stone; and the men of Beth-shemesh offered burnt-offerings and sacrificed sacrifices the same day unto the LORD.

1 6,16 And when the five lords of the Philistines had seen it, they returned to Ekron the same day. {S}

1 6,17 And these are the golden emerods which the Philistines returned for a guilt-offering unto the LORD: for Ashdod one, for Gaza one, for Ashkelon one, for Gath one, for Ekron one;

1 6,18 and the golden mice, according to the number of all the cities of the Philistines belonging to the five lords, both of fortified cities and of country villages, even unto Abel by the great stone, whereon they set down the ark of the LORD, which stone remaineth unto this day in the field of Joshua the Beth-shemite.

1 6,19 And He smote of the men of Beth-shemesh, because they had gazed upon the ark of the LORD, even He smote of the people seventy men, and fifty thousand men; and the people mourned, because the LORD had smitten the people with a great slaughter.

1 6,20 And the men of Beth-shemesh said:
‘Who is able to stand before the LORD, this holy God? and to whom shall it go up from us?’

1 6,21 And they sent messengers to the inhabitants of Kiriath-jearim, saying:
‘The Philistines have brought back the ark of the LORD; come ye down, and fetch it up to you.’

1 7,1 And the men of Kiriath-jearim came, and fetched up the ark of the LORD, and brought it into the house of Abinadab in the hill, and sanctified Eleazar his son to keep the ark of the LORD. {P}

1 7,2 And it came to pass, from the day that the ark abode in Kiriath-jearim, that the time was long; for it was twenty years; and all the house of Israel yearned after the LORD. {S}

1 7,3 And Samuel spoke unto all the house of Israel, saying:
‘If ye do return unto the LORD with all your heart, then put away the foreign gods and the Ashtaroth from among you, and direct your hearts unto the LORD, and serve Him only; and He will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines.’

1 7,4 Then the children of Israel did put away the Baalim and the Ashtaroth, and served the LORD only. {P}

1 7,5 And Samuel said:
‘Gather all Israel to Mizpah, and I will pray for you unto the LORD.’

1 7,6 And they gathered together to Mizpah, and drew water, and poured it out before the LORD, and fasted on that day, and said there:
‘We have sinned against the LORD.’
And Samuel judged the children of Israel in Mizpah.

1 7,7 And when the Philistines heard that the children of Israel were gathered together to Mizpah, the lords of the Philistines went up against Israel. And when the children of Israel heard it, they were afraid of the Philistines.

1 7,8 And the children of Israel said to Samuel:
‘Cease not to cry unto the LORD our God for us, that He save us out of the hand of the Philistines.’

1 7,9 And Samuel took a sucking lamb, and offered it for a whole burnt-offering unto the LORD; and Samuel cried unto the LORD for Israel; and the LORD answered him.

1 7,10 And as Samuel was offering up the burnt-offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel; but the LORD thundered with a great thunder on that day upon the Philistines, and discomfited them; and they were smitten down before Israel.

1 7,11 And the men of Israel went out of Mizpah, and pursued the Philistines, and smote them, until they came under Beth-car.

1 7,12 Then Samuel took a stone, and set it between Mizpah and Shen, and called the name of it Eben-ezer, saying:
‘Hitherto hath the LORD helped us.’

1 7,13 So the Philistines were subdued, and they came no more within the border of Israel; and the hand of the LORD was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel.

1 7,14 And the cities which the Philistines had taken from Israel were restored to Israel, from Ekron even unto Gath; and the border thereof did Israel deliver out of the hand of the Philistines. And there was peace between Israel and the Amorites.

Part III. Psalms

69,22 Yea, they put poison into my food; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

69,23 Let their table before them become a snare; and when they are in peace, let it become a trap.

69,24 Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to totter.

69,25 Pour out Thine indignation upon them, and let the fierceness of Thine anger overtake them.

69,26 Let their encampment be desolate; let none dwell in their tents.

69,27 For they persecute him whom Thou hast smitten; and they tell of the pain of those whom Thou hast wounded.

69,28 Add iniquity unto their iniquity; and let them not come into Thy righteousness.

69,29 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.

69,30 But I am afflicted and in pain; let Thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.

69,31 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify Him with thanksgiving.

69,32 And it shall please the LORD better than a bullock that hath horns and hoofs.

69,33 The humble shall see it, and be glad; ye that seek after God, let your heart revive.

69,34 For the LORD hearkeneth unto the needy, and despiseth not His prisoners.

69,35 Let heaven and earth praise Him, the seas, and every thing that moveth therein.

69,36 For God will save Zion, and build the cities of Judah; and they shall abide there, and have it in possession.

69,37 The seed also of His servants shall inherit it; and they that love His name shall dwell therein. {P}

70,1 For the Leader. [A Psalm] of David; to make memorial.

70,2 O God, to deliver me, O LORD, to help me, make haste.

70,3 Let them be ashamed and abashed that seek after my soul; let them be turned backward and brought to confusion that delight in my hurt.

Part IV. Mark 4

4 And as he sowed, some [seed] fell on the side of the path; and a bird came, and devoured it.

5 And other [seed] fell on a rock, so that it had not much earth; and it soon shot up, because it had no depth of earth.

6 But when the sun was up, it wilted; and because it had no root, it dried up.

7 And other [seed] fell among thorns. And the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruits.

8 And other [seed] fell on good ground, and came up, and grew, and yielded fruits; some thirty, some sixty, and some a hundred.

9 And he said:
Whoever hath ears to hear, let him hear.

10) And when they were by themselves, those with him, together with the twelve, asked him [concerning] this similitude.

11 And Jesus said to them:
To you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to them without, all is in similitudes:

12 that when they see, they may see and not see, and when they hear, they may hear and not understand; lest they should be converted, and their sins be forgiven them.

13 And he said to them:
Do ye not understand this similitude ? And how will ye understand all similitudes ?

14 The sower that sowed, sowed the word.

15 And those by the side of the path, are they in whom the word is sown; and as soon as they have heard [it], Satan cometh, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.

16 And those sown on the rock, are they who, when they hear the word, immediately with joy receive it.

17 And they have no root in them, but are temporary; and when there is affliction or persecution on account of the word, they are quickly stumbled.

18 And those sown among thorns, are they that hear the word,

19 and the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the residue of other lusts enter in and choke the word, and it is without fruits.

20 And those sown on good ground are they that hear the word, and receive it, and bear fruits, by thirties, and by sixties, and by hundreds.

21 And he said to them: Is a lamp brought to be placed under a bushel, or under a bed ? Is it not to be placed on a light-stand ?

22 For there is nothing hid, which will not be exposed; and nothing concealed, which will not be made manifest.

23 If any one have ears to hear, let him hear.

24 And he said to them:
Take heed what ye hear:
with what measure ye measure, it shall be measured to you: and there shall more be given to you who hear.

Even the gods are honest enough to confess who is really LORD of all.
