The Gospel

 

   
The Gospel of Kingdom of God  
   
The Kingdom of God and The Spirit  
 1The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;  
 2As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.  
 3The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.  
 4John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.  
 5And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.  
 6And John was clothed with camel’s hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey;  
 7And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.  
 8I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost. Water – flesh

Spirit

 9And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.  
 10And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: Kingdom of heaven – the Spirit
 11And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.  
 12And immediately the spirit driveth him into the wilderness.  
 13And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him. Forty Days
 14Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,  
 15And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.  
   
Be Strong in the grace  
 1Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.  
 2And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.  
 3Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.  
 4No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.  
 5And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.  
 6The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.  
 7Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.  
 8Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:  
 9Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.  
 10Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.  
 11It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:  
 12If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:  
 13If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

Temptation

 

   
Temptation  
   
 1Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.  
 2And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

 3And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

 4But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

 
 5Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,

 6And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

 7Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

 
 8Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

 9And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

 10Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

 
 11Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.  
   
   
Man shall not live by bread alone, by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God one’s own treasure
 19Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:  
 20But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:  
 21For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.  
 22The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.  
 23But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!  
 24No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.  
 25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?  
 26Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?  
 27Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?  
 28And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:  
 29And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  
 30Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?  
 31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?  
 32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.  
 33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  
 34Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.  
   
   
Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God One’s own righteousness
 1Judge not, that ye be not judged.  
 2For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.  
 3And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?  
 4Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?  
 5Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.  
 6Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.  
 7Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:  
 8For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.  
 9Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?  
 10Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?  
 11If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?  
 12Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.  
   
   
Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve One’s own glory
 13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:  
 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.  
 15Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.  
 16Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?  
 17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.  
 18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.  
 19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.  
 20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.  
 21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.  
 22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  
 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.  
 24Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:  
 25And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.  
 26And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:  
 27And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.  
 28And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:  
 29For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

 15And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.  
   
   
   
Cannot be saved by our works  
 31Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.  
 32If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him.  
 33Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you. After Their Forty Days
 34A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.  
 35By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.  
 36Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.

The Helper,

The Spirit

 37Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.  
 38Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice.  
   
Saved by the sanctifying works of the Spirit  
 1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.  
 2In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.  
 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. Come again
 4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.  
 5Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?  
 6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  
 7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.  
 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.  
 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?  
 10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.  
 11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.  
 12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.  
 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  
 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.  
 15If ye love me, keep my commandments.  
 16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;  
 17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.  
 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. come
 19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. See Jesus

See God

 20At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.  
 21He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. Show Jesus Himself
 22Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?  
 23Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. Come
 24He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.  
 25These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.  
 26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.  
 27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. He goes,

He will do

Not by our works

 28Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. Come again
 29And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.  
 30Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.  
 31But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence. Jesus loves us
   
   
   
   
Born Again  
 35But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?  
 36Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:  
 37And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:  
 38But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.  
 39All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.  
 40There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.  
 41There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.  
 42So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:  
 43It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:  
 44It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.  
 45And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.  
 46Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.  
 47The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven.  
 48As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.  
 49And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.  
 50Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.  
 51Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,  
 52In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.  
 53For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.  
 54So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.  
 55O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?  
 56The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.  
 57But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  
 58Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

 4John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.  
 5And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.

 8I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost. Water – flesh

 9And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.  
 10And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: Kingdom of heaven – the Spirit
 11And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.  
 12And immediately the spirit driveth him into the wilderness.  
 13And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him. Forty Days
 14Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,  
 15And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.  
   
   
   
 4But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.  
 7Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.  
 10Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.  
   
 23And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.  
 24And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.  
 25And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.  
 1And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:  
 2And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,  
 3Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  
 4Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.  
 5Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.  
 6Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.  
 7Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.  
 8Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.  
 9Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.  
 10Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  
 11Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.  
 12Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.  
   
 9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.  
 10Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.  
 11Give us this day our daily bread.  
 12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.  
 13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.  
 14For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:  
 15But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.  
   
 33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  
 34Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.  
   
   
 7Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:  
 8For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.  
 9Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?  
 10Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?  
 11If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?  
 12Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.  
 13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:  
 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.  
   
   

Fear God

 

   
Fear God  
   
Obedience is better than sacrifices  
 1Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil. The altar

Quick to listen

Obedience

 2Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few. Slow to speak

Slow to anger

 3For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words. Empty words

Vain deeds

   
Our work in Him is not in vain  
 4When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.  
 5Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.  
 6Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?  
 7For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also divers vanities: but fear thou God.  
   
Trust in God, Be Holy  
 8If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they.  
   
   
   
Against those who give offense to your heart  
 21Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:  
 22But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. Slow to speak

Slow to anger

 23Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Quick to listen
 24Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Peace

love your neighbor

 25Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.  
 26Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.  
   
Against those who give delights to you eyes  
 27Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:  
 28But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.  
 29And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.  
 30And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.  
   
Asunder Not What God hath joined together  
 31It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:  
 32But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.  
   
We can do nothing apart from Him  
 33Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:  
 34But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:  
 35Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.  
 36Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.  
 37But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.  
Against those who oppress you.  
 38Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:  
 39But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. Resist not evil person
 40And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.  
 41And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.  
 42Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.  
   
Against those who do injustice  
 43Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.  
 44But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; Love your enemies
 45That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.  
 46For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?  
 47And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?  
 48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

 11The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.

 13That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked. peace

 16Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?  
 17Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.

 20Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?  
 21They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.  
 22But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.  
 23And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off. Die in their sins
   
   
   
The Spirit of the Truth  
 26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:  
 27And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.  
 1These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. temptation
 2They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.  
 3And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.  
 4But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.  
 5But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?  
 6But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.  
 7Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.  
 8And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:  
 9Of sin, because they believe not on me;  
 10Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;  
 11Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.  
 12I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.  
 13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. spiritual tongue
 14He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  
 15All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.  
 16A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.

The Word, The Truth, The Spirit  
 31Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;  
 32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. The truth makes us free
 33They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?  
 34Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.  
 35And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.  
 36If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. The Son makes us free
 37I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. The Spirit
 38I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.  
 39They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.  
 40But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.  
 41Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.  
 42Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.  
 43Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Spiritual tongue
 44Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.  
 45And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.  
 46Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?  
 47He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.  
   
For the glory of God who sent Him  
 48Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?  
 49Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.  
 50And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.  
 51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. The abiding Spirit,

eternal life

 52Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.  
 53Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?  
 54Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:  
 55Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.  
 56Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.  
 57Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?  
 58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.  
 59Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.  
   
Go and Make Disciples of All Nations  
 1Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.  
 2For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.  
 3But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.  
 4He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.  
 5I would that ye all spake with tongues but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.  
 6Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine?  
 7And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped?  
 8For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?  
 9So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air.  
 10There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.  
 11Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto me.  
 12Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.  
 13Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret.  
 14For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.  
 15What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.  
 16Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest?  
 17For thou verily givest thanks well, but the other is not edified.  
 18I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:  
 19Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.  
 20Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.  
 21In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord.  
 22Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.  
 23If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?  
 24But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all:  
 25And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.  
 26How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.  
 27If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.  
 28But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.  
 29Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.  
 30If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace.  
 31For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.  
 32And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.  
 33For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.  
 34Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law.  
 35And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.  
 36What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?  
 37If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.  
 38But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.  
 39Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.  
 40Let all things be done decently and in order.
