 12Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ’s gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord,  
 13I had no rest in my spirit, because I found not Titus my brother: but taking my leave of them, I went from thence into Macedonia. Titus from Corinth

Not heard from Corinth

 14Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. God gives victory

Salt and Light

 15For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:  
 16To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?  
 17For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak wein Christ. We speak in Christ
 1Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you?  
 2Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Fruit, witness
 3Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart. 1. with the Spirit

2. in the heart

3. by God

 4And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward: faith
 5Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;  
 6Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.  
   
   
   

Matthew 5

 
 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.  
 13Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.  
 14Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.  
 15Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.  
 16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.  
 17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.  
 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.  
 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  
 20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.  
 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.  
 23Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;  
 24Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.  
 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.  
 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.  
 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.  
 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.  
 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.  
 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.  
 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;  
 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.  

 
 1Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. 1. giving to others
 2Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.  
 3But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:  
 4That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.  
 5And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 2. pray – ask
 6But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.  
 7But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.  
 8Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.  
 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: Ask forgiveness

deny oneself

surrender his own right

 15But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.  
 16Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 3. fast – surrender
 17But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;  
 18That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.  
 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. Ask discernment

Ask good things

 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.  

Matthew 7

 
 1Judge not, that ye be not judged. Deny oneself
 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. Ask holy things and heavenly treasure

discerment and good deeds

 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.  
 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.  
   

Forgive

   
Forgive  
   
   
   
 23Moreover I call God for a record upon my soul, that to spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth.  
 24Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.  
 1But I determined this with myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness.  
 2For if I make you sorry, who is he then that maketh me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me?  
 3And I wrote this same unto you, lest, when I came, I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice; having confidence in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all.  
 4For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.  
 5But if any have caused grief, he hath not grieved me, but in part: that I may not overcharge you all.  
 6Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many.  
 7So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow.  
 8Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirmyourlove toward him.  
 9For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things.  
 10To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ;  
 11Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

 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.  
   

United in Love

   
United in Love  
   
   
   
24Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body‘s sake, which is the church: Jesus sanctified Himself for us
 25Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God; Witness
 26Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: Makes His name known to us
 27To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Christ abiding in you
 28Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:  
 29Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily. The Father abiding in me works
 1For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh; Tribulation and persecution
 2That their hearts might be comforted,

being knit together in love,

and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;

Comforter abiding in us

Keep His commandments → Abiding in His love → Manifests His name, guides into all the truth

 3In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.  
 4And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.  
 5For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ.  
   
   

John 14

 
 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.  
 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; Helper
 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.  
 19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.  
 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.  
 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.  
 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. Comforter
 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.  
 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.  

John 15

 
 1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.  
 2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.  
 3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.  
 4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.  
 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.  
 6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.  
 7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.  
 8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.  
 9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.  
 10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.  
 11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.  
 12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.  
 13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.  
 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.  
 15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.  
 16Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.  
 17These things I command you, that ye love one another.  
 18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.  
 19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.  
 20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.  
 21But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.  
 22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.  
 23He that hateth me hateth my Father also.  
 24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.  
 25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.  
 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.  

John 16

 
 1These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.  
 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.  
 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.  
 17Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?  
 18They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.  
 19Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?  
 20Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.  
 21A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.  
 22And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.  
 23And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.  
 24Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.  
 25These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.  
 26At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:  
 27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.  
 28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.  
 29His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.  
 30Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.  
 31Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?  
 32Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.  
 33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. Comforter

 

John 17

 
 1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:  
 2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.  
 3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.  
 4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.  
 5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.  
 6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.  
 7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.  
 8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.  
 9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.  
 10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.  
 11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.  
 12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.  
 13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.  
 14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  
 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.  
 18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.  
 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.  
 20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;  
 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  
 22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:  
 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.  
 24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.  
 25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.  
 26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

1Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth‘s sake.  
2Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?  
3But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.  
4Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.  
5They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:  
6They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:  
7They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.  
8They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.  
9O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.  
10O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.  
11Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their shield. Abide in His love
12The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron. Whatever we ask in His name, it will be given to us.
13He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great. Love
14The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children.  
15Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.  
16The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.  
17The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.  
18But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the LORD. Eternal life
   
   
   

John 14

 
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.  
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.  
19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.  
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.  
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.  
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. Help → maninfest
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.  
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.  
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.  

John 15

 
1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.  
2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.  
3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.  
4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.  
5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. Fear the Lord
6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.  
7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.  
8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.  
9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.  
10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.  
11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.  
12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.  
13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.  
14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.  
15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.  
16Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. Fear the Lord → keep His commandments → abide in His love
17These things I command you, that ye love one another.  
18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.  
19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.  
20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.  
21But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.  
22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.  
23He that hateth me hateth my Father also.  
24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.  
25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.  
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.  

John 16

 
1These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.  
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?

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. Help → manifest
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.  
17Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?  
18They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.  
19Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?  
20Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.  
21A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.  
22And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.  
23And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.  
24Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.  
25These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.  
26At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:  
27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.  
28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.  
29His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.  
30Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.  
31Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?  
32Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.  
33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.  

John 17

 
1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:  
2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.  
3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.  
4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.  
5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.  
6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. help
7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.  
8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.  
9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.  
10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.  
11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. shield
12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.  
13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.  
14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  
16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.  
18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.  
19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.  
20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;  
21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  
22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:  
23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.  
24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.  
25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.  
26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

 11Ye also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf.  
 12For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward. Salt

Light

 

13For we write none other things unto you, that what ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end; The light of the world … A city … cannot be hid …
 14As also ye have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye also are our’s in the day of the Lord Jesus. See your good works
 15And in this confidence I was minded to come unto you before, that ye might have a second benefit;  
 16And to pass by you into Macedonia, and to come again out of Macedonia unto you, and of you to be brought on my way toward Judaea.  
 17When I therefore was thus minded, did I use lightness? or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be yea yea, and nay nay?  
 18But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea and nay.  
 19For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea. All will be fulfilled
 20For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.  
 21Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; The salt on the earth

chosen, ordained

chosen out of the world

 22Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. The light of the world

appointed to go and bear fruit

 23Moreover I call God for a record upon my soul, that to spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth.  
 24Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.  
   
   
   

Matthew 5

 
 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.  
 13Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Established in Christ

Annointed

 14Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Sealed

The Spirit led life

 15Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.  
 16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.  
 17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. Destroy – No

Fulfill – Yes

 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.  
 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  
 20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. By faith
 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.  
 23Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;  
 24Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.  
 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.  
 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.  
 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.  
 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.  
 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.  
 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.  
 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;  
 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.  

Matthew 6

 
 1Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.  
 2Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.  
 3But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:  
 4That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.  
 5And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.  
 6But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.  
 7But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.  
 8Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.  
 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.  
 16Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.  
 17But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;  
 18That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.  
 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.  

Matthew 7

 
 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.  
 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.

 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.  

Matthew 7

 
 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.  
 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.

 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.  
   
   

John 14

 
 1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 1.A The poor in spirit
 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.  
 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. 2.C the pure in heart
 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. 2.B hunger and thirst for righteousness
 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. 2.C the pure in heart
 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
 19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
 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.  
 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.  
 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. 1.A The poor in spirit
 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.  
 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.  

John 15

 
 1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.  
 2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. 1.C the meek

prune – dicipline

 3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.  
 4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.  
 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.  
 6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.  
 7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 2.B hunger and thirst for righteousness
 8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.  
 9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.  
 10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.  
 11These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.  
 12This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. 2.B The merciful
 13Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
 14Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.  
 15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.  
 16Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. 2.B hunger and thirst for righteousness
 17These things I command you, that ye love one another.  
 18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 3.A Persecuted for righteousness’ sake

for my name’s sake → for righteousness’ sake

 

 19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
 20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
 21But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.
 22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.  
 23He that hateth me hateth my Father also.  
 24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.  
 25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.  
 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.  

John 16

 
 1These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. 3.C persecuted for my sake

for my sake → knowledge of God and His Son

 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.  
 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.  
 17Then said some of his disciples among themselves, What is this that he saith unto us, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me: and, Because I go to the Father?  
 18They said therefore, What is this that he saith, A little while? we cannot tell what he saith.  
 19Now Jesus knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said unto them, Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me?  
 20Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. 1.B That mourn
 21A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.  
 22And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.  
 23And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. 2.B hunger and thirst for righteousness
 24Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
 25These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.
 26At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:
 27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.  
 28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.  
 29His disciples said unto him, Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.  
 30Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.  
 31Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?  
 32Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.  
 33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.  

John 17

 
 1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:  
 2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.  
 3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.  
 4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.  
 5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.  
 6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.  
 7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.  
 8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.  
 9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.  
 10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.  
 11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.  
 12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.  
 13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.  
 14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Persecuted for righteousness’ sake
 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  
 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 3.A Peacemakers

Reconciler, Sanctified

reconciliation between God and men

sanctified – sacrificial love

lay down one’s life for the Friend Jesus Christ

 18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
 20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
 22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.  
 24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.  
 25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.  
 26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
