Reward

 

 

Reward

 

 

 

 

 

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

 

11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

 

12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

 

13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

 

14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

 

15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

 

16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

 

17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

 

18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

 

19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

 

20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

 

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

 

22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

 

23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

 

24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

 

25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

 

26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

 

27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

 

28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

 

29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

 

30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

 

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.

 

7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.

 

8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.

 

9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.

 

10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

 

 

 

 

 

19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.

 

20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.

 

21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

 

22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.

 

23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

 

24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:

 

25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

 

26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:

 

27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

 

28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

 

29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

 

30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

 

Walk after the Spirit

 

 

Walk after the Spirit

 

 

 

 

 

3 Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.

 

4 It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink:

 

 

 

8 Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.

 

9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.

 

 

 

 

 

8 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

 

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

 

3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

 

4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

 

5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

 

6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

 

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

 

8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

 

9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

 

10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

 

11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

 

12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

 

13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

 

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

 

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

 

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

 

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

3 Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.

 

4 It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink:

 

 

 

8 Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.

 

9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.

 

 

 

3 Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance.

 

 

 

23 Much food is in the tillage of the poor: but there is that is destroyed for want of judgment.

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

 

 

 

47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

 

48 I am that bread of life.

 

49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

 

50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.

 

51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

 

52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?

 

53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

 

54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

 

55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

 

56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

 

57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

 

58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

 

 

 

 

 

7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.

 

 

 

23 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

 

10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

 

11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?

 

12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?

 

13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

 

14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,

 

16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;

 

17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

Give : Fill

18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

 

19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

 

20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

 

21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

 

22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

 

23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

Christ in us

 

 

 

 

 

 

16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

 

17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

 

18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

 

19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

Christ in us

20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

 

21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled

 

22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

 

23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

 

24 Who 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:

 

25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;

Dispense : Fill

26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:

 

27 To 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:

 

28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

 

29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.

 

His Inheritance

 

 

His Inheritance

 

 

 

 

 

15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,

 

16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;

 

17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

We in Christ

18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

 

19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

 

20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

 

21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

 

22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

 

23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

Christ in us

 

 

 

 

12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

 

13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

 

23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

 

24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

 

Knowledge

 

 

Knowledge

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,

 

16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;

 

17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

We in Christ

18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

 

19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

 

20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

 

21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

 

22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

 

23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

Christ in us

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

 

2 In 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.

 

3 And 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.

 

4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

 

5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

 

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

 

7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

 

8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

 

9 Jesus 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?

 

10 Believest 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.

Fullness of Him

11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.

 

12 Verily, 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.

 

13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

 

14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do 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.

 

25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.

 

26 But 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.

 

27 Peace 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.

 

28 Ye 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.

 

29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.

 

30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

 

31 But 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.

 

Fullness

 

 

Fullness

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

 

44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

 

45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

 

 

 

 

 

7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

 

 

 

3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

 

4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.

 

5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;

 

6 And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.

 

7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,

 

8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

 

9 Butin vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

 

10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:

 

11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

 

12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?

 

13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.

 

14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

 

15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.

 

16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?

 

17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?

 

18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.

 

19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders,adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

 

20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,

 

16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;

 

17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

Give : Fill

18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,

 

19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

 

20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

 

21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

 

22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

 

23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

Christ in us

 

 

 

 

 

 

16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

 

17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

 

18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

 

19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

 

21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled

29 Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.
