My Strength

   
My Strength  
   
   
   
 16When I heard, my belly trembled; my lips quivered at the voice: rottenness entered into my bones, and I trembled in myself, that I might rest in the day of trouble: when he cometh up unto the people, he will invade them with his troops.  
 17Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:  
 18Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.  
 19The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.  
   
 9And Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that taught the people, said unto all the people, This day is holy unto the LORD your God; mourn not, nor weep. For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law.  
 10Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our LORD: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.  
 11So the Levites stilled all the people, saying, Hold your peace, for the day is holy; neither be ye grieved.  
   
   
7Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.  
 8It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.  
 9Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:  
   
   
13The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.  
 14Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.  
 15By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.  
   
 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. To overcome the world
   
   
   
 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. To be kept 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. To be sanctified
 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. To be made perfect in one
 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. To be where Jesus is
 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. To have the love

 1Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. Peace I leave with you
 2He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.  
 3A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.  
 4He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.  
 5Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: Peace I leave with you
 6I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; 1. Call

2. Hold

3. Keep

 7To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. 4. Ministry
 8I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. My peace
 9Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them. My peace
 10Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.  
 11Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains.  
 12Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands.  
 13The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.  
 14I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once.  
 15I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.  
 16And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them. Not as the world giveth
 17They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods. Not as the world giveth
 18Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see. Peace I leave with you
 19Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD’s servant?  
 20Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not.  
 21The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable.  
 22But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore.  
 23Who among you will give ear to this? who will hearken and hear for the time to come?  
 24Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the LORD, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law.  
 25Therefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle: and it hath set him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart.

 3The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.  
 4Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:  
 5And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.  
   
   
   
 1Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.  
 2He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.  
 3A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.  
 4He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.  
 5Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:  
 6I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;  
 7To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.  
 8I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.  
 9Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.  
   
   
 3According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:  
 4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.  
 5And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;  
 6And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;  
 7And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.  
 8For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  
 9But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.  
 10Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and electionsure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:  
 11For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

 1Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment.  
 2Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow. Not as the world giveth
 3He pursued them, and passed safely; even by the way that he had not gone with his feet.  
 4Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he. Not as the world giveth
 5The isles saw it, and feared; the ends of the earth were afraid, drew near, and came.  
 6They helped every one his neighbour; and every one said to his brother, Be of good courage. Not as the world giveth
 7So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith, and he that smootheth with the hammer him that smote the anvil, saying, It is ready for the sodering: and he fastened it with nails, that it should not be moved.  
 8But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.  
 9Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.  
 10Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. My peace
 11Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.  
 12Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.  
 13For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. My peace
 14Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. My peace
 15Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff.  
 16Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the LORD, and shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel.  
 17When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.  
 18I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.  
 19I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together:  
 20That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it. My peace
 21Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob.  
 22Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come. Not as the world giveth
 23Shew the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods: yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together.  
 24Behold, ye are of nothing, and your work of nought: an abomination is he that chooseth you.  
 25I have raised up one from the north, and he shall come: from the rising of the sun shall he call upon my name: and he shall come upon princes as upon morter, and as the potter treadeth clay.  
 26Who hath declared from the beginning, that we may know? and beforetime, that we may say, He is righteous? yea, there is none that sheweth, yea, there is none that declareth, yea, there is none that heareth your words. Not as the world giveth
 27The first shall say to Zion, Behold, behold them: and I will give to Jerusalem one that bringeth good tidings.  
 28For I beheld, and there was no man; even among them, and there was no counsellor, that, when I asked of them, could answer a word.  
 29Behold, they are all vanity; their works are nothing: their molten images are wind and confusion.

 1Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Peace I leave with you
 2Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD’s hand double for all her sins.  
 3The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.  
 4Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:  
 5And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. My peace
 6The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: Not as the world giveth
 7The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass.  
 8The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.  
 9O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!  
 10Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. Leave with you

My peace

 11He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. Not as the world giveth
 12Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?  
 13Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him?  
 14With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?  
 15Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.  
 16And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering.  
 17All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.  
 18To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?  
 19The workman melteth a graven image, and the goldsmith spreadeth it over with gold, and casteth silver chains.  
 20He that is so impoverished that he hath no oblation chooseth a tree that will not rot; he seeketh unto him a cunning workman to prepare a graven image, that shall not be moved.  
 21Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?  
22It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:  
 23That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.  
 24Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.  
 25To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.  
 26Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.  
 27Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?  
 28Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.  
 29He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.  
 30Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:  
 31But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

 13And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.  
 14And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not? Fear of men

Fear of God

 15Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.  
 16And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar’s.  
 17And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.  
   
   
 47And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people.  
 48Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.  
 49And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.  
 50And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus and took him.  
 51And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest’s, and smote off his ear.  
 52Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.  
 53Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?  
 54But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? The will of God
 55In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.  
 56But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.  
   
   
1Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,  
 2Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.  
 3For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
