13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.

 

14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.

 

15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

 

 

 

 

 

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

 

21 Not 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.

 

 

 

 

 

50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

 

 

 

 

 

28 But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.

 

29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.

 

30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.

 

31 Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.

 

32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.

 

 

 

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

 

13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

 

 

 

 

 

34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finishhis work.

 

 

 

 

 

29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

 

30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

 

 

 

 

 

37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

 

38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

 

39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

 

19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.

 

8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:

 

9 Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:

 

10 Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;

 

11 And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,

 

12 And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;

 

13 And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!

 

14 I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6 Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:

 

7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,

 

8 Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

 

How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?

 

10 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:

 

11 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.

 

36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.

 

 

 

 

 

33 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.

 

34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.

 

35 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.

 

36 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

 

37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.

 

38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.

 

39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

 

 

 

 

 

9 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.

 

2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?

 

3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

 

4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

 

As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

 

6 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,

 

7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

 

33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

 

34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

 

35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

 

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

 

37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

 

38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

 

39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

 

40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

 

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

 

42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

 

43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

 

44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

 

45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

The will of the Lord

46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

 

47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

 

48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

 

49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

 

50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

 

51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

 

 

 

 

 

28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:

 

29 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.

 

30 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.

 

31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

 

32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

 

33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

 

34 For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.

 

35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:

 

36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.

 

37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

 

 

 

 

 

29 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;

 

30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.

 

31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

 

32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

 

33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

 

34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

Be filled with the Spirit

35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

 

36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

2 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

 

2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;

 

3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;

 

4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

 

 

 

5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.

 

6 For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

 

7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.

 

8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.

 

 

 

9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.

 

10 When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;

 

11 Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:

 

 

 

12 To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;

 

13 Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;

 

14 Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked;

 

15 Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:

 

 

 

16 To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;

 

17 Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.

 

18 For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.

 

19 None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.

 

 

 

20 That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.

 

21 For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.

 

22 But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

 

16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

 

17 Even 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.

 

18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

 

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

 

20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

 

 

 

21 He 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.

 

22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Building a House

 

 

 

 

 

10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.

 

11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:

 

12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:

 

13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:

 

14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:

 

15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:

 

16 For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.

 

17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.

 

18 And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.

 

19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.

 

 

 

 

 

Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:

 

2 She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table.

 

3 She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city,

 

4 Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,

 

5 Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled.

 

6 Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

 

 

 

 

 

24 Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them.

 

2 For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.

 

Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:

 

And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

 

A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.

 

6 For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.

 

7 Wisdom is too high for a fool: he openeth not his mouth in the gate.

 

8 He that deviseth to do evil shall be called a mischievous person.

 

9 The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.
