Take no thought

 

 

Take no thought

 

 

 

 

 

14 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:

Take no thought

15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

 

16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.

 

17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.

 

18 But there shall not an hair of your head perish.

Peace, No fear

19 In your patience possess ye your souls.

Patience

 

 

 

 

16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

 

17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;

 

18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.

 

19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.

Take no thought

20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

 

21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.

 

22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Patience

23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.

 

24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.

 

25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?

 

26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.

 

27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

 

28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

 

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.

 

30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Peace, assurance

31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

 

32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

 

33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

 

34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

 

35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

 

36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

 

37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

 

38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

 

39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

 

20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

 

21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

 

22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

 

23 But 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!

 

24 No 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.

 

25 Therefore 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?

Take no thought

26 Behold 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?

 

27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

 

28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

 

29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

 

30 Wherefore, 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?

 

31 Therefore 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.

 

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

 

34 Take 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.

The Heart and the Mouth

 

 

The Heart and the Mouth

 

 

 

 

 

8 The wise in heart will receive commandments: but a prating fool shall fall.

 

 

 

20 The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth.

 

 

 

 

 

34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

 

35 A good man out of the goodtreasure of the heart bringeth forth goodthings: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

 

36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

 

37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom.

 

22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

 

34 Take 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.

 

Quicken and Heal

 

 

Quicken and Heal

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

 

 

 

 

 

20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.

 

21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.

 

 

 

63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

 

 

 

 

 

16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

 

17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

 

18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.

 

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.

3 The Lord will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked.

 

 

 

6 Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.

 

7 The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

21 If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink:

 

22 For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the Lord shall reward thee.

 

 

 

 

 

18 For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.

 

19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

 

20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

 

 

 

 

 

10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.

26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

 

 

 

 

 

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

 

25 And 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.

 

26 And 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:

 

27 And 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.

 

 

 

A Wise Servant

 

 

A Wise Servant

 

 

 

 

 

29 He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.

 

 

 

2 A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.

 

 

 

10 Accuse not a servant unto his master, lest he curse thee, and thou be found guilty.

 

Pray, Forgive, Heal

 

 

Pray, Forgive, Heal

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

13 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.

 

14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

 

15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

 

16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

 

17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

 

18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

 

19 Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;

 

20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

 

8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

 

 

 

16 Ye 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.

 

 

 

 

 

23 And 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.

 

24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

 

25 These 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.

 

26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:

 

27 For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

 

 

 

 

 

16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:

 

17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
