Blameless

   
Blameless  
   
   
So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:  
Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. Keep in His name

Sanctified

God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.  
   
   
11 And 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.  
12 While 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.  
13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.  
14 I 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.  
15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.  
16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  
17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.  
18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.  
19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.  
20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;  
21 That 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.  
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:  
23 I 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.  
24 Father, 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.  
25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.  
26 And 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.

God’s Faithfulness

   
God’s Faithfulness  
   
   
12 And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.  
13 He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever.  
14 I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men:  
15 But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.  
16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.  
   
   
26 Hast thou not heard long ago, how I have done it; and of ancient times, that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste defenced cities into ruinous heaps.  
27 Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded: they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the housetops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.  
28 But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy coming in, and thy rage against me.  
29 Because thy rage against me, and thy tumult, is come up into mine ears, therefore will I put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.  
   
25 O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.  
2 For thou hast made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.  
3 Therefore shall the strong people glorify thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear thee.  
4 For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.  
5 Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.  
   
   
29 Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt! add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices.  
2 Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow: and it shall be unto me as Ariel.  
3 And I will camp against thee round about, and will lay siege against thee with a mount, and I will raise forts against thee.  
4 And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.  
5 Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passeth away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.  
6 Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.  
7 And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.  
8 It shall even be as when an hungry man dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh; but he awaketh, and, behold, he is faint, and his soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion.  
   
   
31 And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward:  
32 For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the Lord of hosts shall do this.  
   

Love

   
Love  
   
   
14 Because he hath set his love upon me,

therefore will I deliver him:

If a man love me,
I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. he will keep my words:
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: my Father will love him
I will be with him in trouble;

I will deliver him, and honour him.

we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.  
   
   
23 Jesus 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.  
24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

14 And Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up unto the house of the Lord, and spread it before the Lord.  
15 And Hezekiah prayed unto the Lord, saying,  
16 O Lord of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou hast made heaven and earth.  
17 Incline thine ear, O Lord, and hear; open thine eyes, O Lord, and see: and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent to reproach the living God.  
18 Of a truth, Lord, the kings of Assyria have laid waste all the nations, and their countries,  
19 And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.  
20 Now therefore, O Lord our God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the Lord, even thou only.  
   
   
32 Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.  
2 And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.  
3 And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken.  
4 The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly.  
5 The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful.  
6 For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the Lord, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.  
7 The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.  
8 But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.  
   

Good Things

   
Good Things  
Mercy, Grace, LovingKindness, The Spirit  
   
10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger:  
but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.  
   
25 Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever.  
26 O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever.  
   

Inheritance

   
Inheritance  
   
   
4 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;  
2 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.  
3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:  
4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,  
To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.  
6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.  
7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.  
   
   
21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;  
22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.  
   
5 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.  
2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:  
3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.  
4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.  
5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.  
6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:  
7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight🙂  
8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.  
9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.  
10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.  
   
   
   
13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,  
14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.  
   
   
13 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.  
14 That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.

 A false witness shall perish: but the man that heareth speaketh constantly.  
   
15 For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.  
16 But ye said, No; for we will flee upon horses; therefore shall ye flee: and, We will ride upon the swift; therefore shall they that pursue you be swift.  
17 One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on an hill.  
18 And therefore will the Lordwait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the Lord is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.  
19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.  
20 And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers:  
21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.  
22 Ye shall defile also the covering of thy graven images of silver, and the ornament of thy molten images of gold: thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; thou shalt say unto it, Get thee hence.  
23 Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures.  
24 The oxen likewise and the young asses that ear the ground shall eat clean provender, which hath been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan.  
25 And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.  
26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.  
27 Behold, the name of the Lord cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire:  
28 And his breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.  
29 Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the Lord, to the mighty One of Israel.  
30 And the Lord shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones.  
31 For through the voice of the Lord shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod.  
32 And in every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which the Lord shall lay upon him, it shall be with tabrets and harps: and in battles of shaking will he fight with it.  
33 For Tophet is ordained of old; yea, for the king it is prepared; he hath made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of the Lord, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it.  
   
   
   
37 And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the Lord.  
2 And he sent Eliakim, who was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests covered with sackcloth, unto Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.  
3 And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and of blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.  
4 It may be the Lord thy God will hear the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God, and will reprove the words which the Lord thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that is left.  
5 So the servants of king Hezekiah came to Isaiah.  
6 And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say unto your master, Thus saith the Lord, Be not afraid of the words that thou hast heard, wherewith the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me. Repentance, Rest,

Quietness, Confidence

7 Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.  
8 So Rabshakeh returned, and found the king of Assyria warring against Libnah: for he had heard that he was departed from Lachish.  
9 And he heard say concerning Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, He is come forth to make war with thee. And when he heard it, he sent messengers to Hezekiah, saying,  
10 Thus shall ye speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy God, in whom thou trustest, deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.  
11 Behold, thou hast heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands by destroying them utterly; and shalt thou be delivered?  
12 Have the gods of the nations delivered them which my fathers have destroyed, as Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph, and the children of Eden which were in Telassar?  
13 Where is the king of Hamath, and the king of Arphad, and the king of the city of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivah?  
14 And Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up unto the house of the Lord, and spread it before the Lord.  
15 And Hezekiah prayed unto the Lord, saying,  
16 O Lord of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou hast made heaven and earth.  
17 Incline thine ear, O Lord, and hear; open thine eyes, O Lord, and see: and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent to reproach the living God.  
18 Of a truth, Lord, the kings of Assyria have laid waste all the nations, and their countries,  
19 And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.  
20 Now therefore, O Lord our God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the Lord, even thou only.  
21 Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent unto Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Whereas thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria:  
22 This is the word which the Lord hath spoken concerning him; The virgin, the daughter of Zion, hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee.  
23 Whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed? and against whom hast thou exalted thy voice, and lifted up thine eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel.  
24 By thy servants hast thou reproached the Lord, and hast said, By the multitude of my chariots am I come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon; and I will cut down the tall cedars thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and I will enter into the height of his border, and the forest of his Carmel.  
25 I have digged, and drunk water; and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the rivers of the besieged places.  
26 Hast thou not heard long ago, how I have done it; and of ancient times, that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste defenced cities into ruinous heaps.  
27 Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded: they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the housetops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.  
28 But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy coming in, and thy rage against me.  
29 Because thy rage against me, and thy tumult, is come up into mine ears, therefore will I put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.  
30 And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such as groweth of itself; and the second year that which springeth of the same: and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit thereof.  
31 And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward:  
32 For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the Lord of hosts shall do this.  
33 Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shields, nor cast a bank against it.  
34 By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the Lord.  
35 For I will defend this city to save it for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.  
36 Then the angel of the Lord went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.  
37 So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.  
38 And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Armenia: and Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead.
