A cup of cold water

   
A cup of cold water  
   
   
36 And Abigail came to Nabal; and, behold, he held a feast in his house, like the feast of a king; and Nabal’s heart was merry within him, for he was very drunken: wherefore she told him nothing, less or more, until the morning light.  
37 But it came to pass in the morning, when the wine was gone out of Nabal, and his wife had told him these things, that his heart died within him, and he became as a stone.  
38 And it came to pass about ten days after, that the Lord smote Nabal, that he died.  
39 And when David heard that Nabal was dead, he said, Blessed be the Lord, that hath pleaded the cause of my reproach from the hand of Nabal, and hath kept his servant from evil: for the Lord hath returned the wickedness of Nabal upon his own head. And David sent and communed with Abigail, to take her to him to wife. Nabal blasphemed the God’s anointed

Did not receive the sent one

40 And when the servants of David were come to Abigail to Carmel, they spake unto her, saying, David sent us unto thee, to take thee to him to wife.  
41 And she arose, and bowed herself on her face to the earth, and said, Behold, let thine handmaid be a servant to wash the feet of the servants of my lord.  
42 And Abigail hasted, and arose and rode upon an ass, with five damsels of hers that went after her; and she went after the messengers of David, and became his wife.  
   
   
   
31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. for the peace with the rich and the rulers to save our own lives
32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. for His name to be proclaimed
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.  
40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.  
41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. take heed not to blaspheme the Holy Spirit
42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.  
   
   
   
4 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.  
5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.  
6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?  
7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.  
8 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:  
9 But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.  
10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.  
11 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say:  
12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.  
13 And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.  
14 And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?  
15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.  
16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:  
17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?  
18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.  
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.  
20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?  
21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.  
   
   
7 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?  
2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.  
3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.  
4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.  
5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.  
6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.
