Psalms 22:1-31

1 To the overseer upon the first place of the dawn; chanting of David. My God, my God, wherefore forsookest thou me? far off from my salvation the words of my groaning. 2 My God, I will call in the day, and thou wilt not answer; and in the night no silence to me. 3 And thou inhabiting the holy place, the praises of Israel. 4 In thee our fathers trusted: they trusted, and thou wilt deliver them. 5 To thee they cried and were delivered: in thee they trusted and were not ashamed. 6 And I a worm and not a man; a reproach of man, and the people despised me. 7 All seeing me will deride me: they will gape with the lip, they will shake the head. 8 He rolled upon Jehovah, he will deliver him: he will deliver him for he delighted in him. 9 Thou causing me to break forth from the womb: causing me to trust upon my mother's breasts. 10 Upon thee was I cast from the womb: from my mother's belly thou my God. 11 Thou wilt not remove far from me, for straits draw near; for none helping. 12 Many bulls surrounded me: the strong of Bashan surrounded me. 13 They opened their mouth upon me, a lion rending and roaring. 14 I was poured out as water, and all my bones were sundered; my heart was as wax being melted in the midst of my bowels. 15 My strength was dried up as the potsherd, and my tongue cleaving to my jaws; and thou wilt set me for the dust of death. 16 For dogs surrounded me: the assembly of those being evil moved round about me: they digged my hands and my feet 17 I shall number all my bones: they will behold and look upon me. 18 They will divide my garments to them, and upon my clothing they will cast the lot 19 And thou, O Jehovah, wilt not be far off: O my strength, hasten to help me. 20 Deliver my soul from the sword, my only one from the band of the dog. 21 Save me from the mouth of the lion: and thou didst answer me from the horns of the high. 22 I will recount thy name to my brethren: in the midst of the convocation I will praise thee. 23 Ye fearing Jehovah, praise him; all the seed of Jacob honor him; and be afraid of him all ye seed of Israel. 24 For he despised not and he abhorred not the afflictions of the bumble; and he hid not his face from him, and in his crying to him he heard. 25 Of thee my praise in the great convocation: I will complete my vows before them fearing him. 26 The humble shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise Jehovah they seeking him: your heart shall live forever. 27 All the ends of the earth shall remember and shall turn back to Jehovah: and all the families of the nations shall worship before thee. 28 For to Jehovah the kingdom, and he rules among the nations. 29 All the fat ones of the earth shall eat and worship before him, and all they going down to dust shall bow down, and he preserved not alive his soul. 30 A seed shall serve him; it shall be numbered to Jehovah for a generation. 31 They shall come and announce his justice to a people being born, for he made.

Matthew 4:7

7 Jesus said to him, Again has it been written, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

Proverbs 29:22

22 A man of anger will excite strife, and the possessor of wrath increased transgression.

Matthew 6:25

25 For this I say to you, Be not anxious about your soul, what ye eat, and what ye drink; nor about your body, what ye put on. Is not the soul more than food, and the body than dress?

Matthew 5:1-7:29

1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain; and he having sat down, his disciples came to him. 2 And having opened his mouth, he taught them, saying, 3 Happy the poor in spirit: for their's is the kingdom of the heavens. 4 Happy they suffering: for they shall be comforted. 5 Happy the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. 6 Happy they hungering and thirsting for Justice: for they shall be filled. 7 Happy the compasaionate: for they shall be commiserated. 8 Happy the pure in heart: tor they shall see God. 9 Happy they making peace: for they shall be called sons of God. 10 Happy they driven out for justice: for their's is the kingdom of the heavens. 11 Happy are ye, when they shall upbraid you, and drive you out, and say every evil word against you, lying, for my sake. 12 Rejoice and be transported with joy; for much your reward in the heavens for so they drove out the prophets which before you. 13 Ye are the salt of the earth: and if the salt be rendered insipid, with what shall it be salted? it is yet strong for nothing, except to be cast without, and to be trodden under foot of men. 14 Ye are the light of the world. A city cannot be hid, set on a mountain. 15 Neither do they burn a light, and set it under a basket, but upon a chandelier: and it shines to all in the house. 16 So let your light shine before men, that they see your good works, and praise your Father, him in the heavens. 17 Think not that I have come to abolish the law, or the prophets: for I have come not abolish, but to complete. 18 For verily I say to you, Till heaven pass away, and earth, one iota, or one mark, should not pass away from the law, till all should be 19 Whoever therefore, should loose one of the least of these commands, and so teach men, he shall be called least in the kingdom of the heavens: but whoever should do and teach, he shall be called great in the kingdom of the heavens. 20 For I say to you, That except your justice abound more than the scribes and Pharisees, ye should not come into the kingdom of the heavens. 21 Ye have heard that it was said to the ancients, Thou shalt not kill: and whoever should kill shall be subject to judgment: 22 But I say to you, That every one becoming angry with his brother, shall be subject to judgment: and whoever should say to his brother, Raca, should be, subject to the council: and whoever should say, O foolish, shall be subject to a hell of fire. 23 If therefore, thou bring thy gift upon the altar, and there thou remember that thy brother has anything against thee, 24 Let go there thy gift, before the altar, and retire; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then, having come, bring thy gift. 25 Be kindly disposed to thy opponent quickly, while thou art in the way with him, lest thy opponent should deliver thee to the judge, and the judge should deliver thee to the assistant, and thou be cast into prison. 26 Verily I say to thee, Thou shouldst not come out thence, even till, thou shouldst give back the last fourth. 27 Ye have heard that it was said to the ancients, Thou shalt not commit adultery: 28 But I say to you, That every one seeing a woman, to eagerly desire her, has already committed adultery with her, in his heart. 29 And if thine eye give thee cause of offence, take it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members be destroyed, and not thy whole body be cast into hell. 30 And if thy right hand give thee cause of offence, cut it off, and cast from thee; for it is profitable to thee, that one of thy members should be destroyed; and not thy whole body should be cast into hell. 31 And it was said, That whosoever should loose his wife, let him give her a repudiation. 32 But I say to you, That whosoever shall let go his wife except for the reason of adultery, makes her to commit adultery; and whosoever should marry her having been loosed, commits adultery. 33 Again, ye have heard, that it was said to the ancients, Thou shalt not swear a false oath, and thou shalt. return to the Lord thine oaths. 34 But I say to you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven, it is the throne of God: 35 Neither by the earth; for it is the footstool of his feet: neither by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great kings 36 Neither shouldst thou swear by thy head, for thou cant not make one hair white or black. 37 But let your word be Yea, yea, and No, no: but that above this is of evil. 38 Ye have heard, that it has been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 39 But I say to you not to resist evil: but whosoever shall smite thee with a rod upon thy right cheek, turn to him also the other. 40 And to him wishing to be judged with thee, and to take thy coat, let go to him also thy garment. 41 And whoever shall compel thee to carry dispatches one mile, go forward with him two. 42 To him asking thee, give thou, and him wishing to borrow from thee, thou shouldst not turn away. 43 Ye have heard that it has been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies, praise them cursing you, do well to them hating you, and pray for them threatening you, and driving you out. 45 So that ye might be sons of your Father, which in the heavens: for he makes his sun rise upon evil and good, and rains on the just and unjust. 46 For if ye love them loving you, what reward. have you? do not also the tax collectors the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye above ordinary? and do not the tax collectors the same? 48 Therefore, be ye perfected, as your Father which is in the heavens is perfected.

Matthew 6:1-7:29

1 Attend ye not to do your justice before men, to be seen to them; and if otherwise ye have no reward from your Father which in the heavens. 2 When therefore thou doest alms, thou shouldst not sound the trumpet before thee, as hypocrites do in the assemblies, and in the streets, that they might be praised by men. Verily I say to you, They have their reward. 3 But thou doing alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right does: 4 That thine alms might be in secret; and thy Father, who seeing in secret, shall give back to thee openly. 5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites; for they love in the assemblies, and in the corners of the broad ways to stand praying, so that they might appear to men. Verily I say to you, that they have their reward. 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy store-house, and having shut thy door, pray to thy Father which in secret; and thy Father who seeing in secret shall give back to thee openly. 7 And praying, talk ye not vainly as the nations; for they think that by their profaneness of speech they shall be listened to. 8 Therefore make not yourselves like them: for your Father knows of what things ye have need before ye ask him. 9 Therefore so do ye pray: Our Father which in the heavens, Let thy name be declared holy. 10 Let thy kingdom come. Let thy will be as in heaven also upon the earth. 11 Give us this day our bread sufficient for sustenance. 12 And let go to us our debts, as we let go to our debtors. 13 And thou shouldst not lead us into temptation, but deliver thou us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen. 14 For if ye let go to men their faults, your Father which in the heavens will also let go to you. 15 But if ye should not let go to men their faults, neither will your Father let go your faults. 16 And when ye fast, be not, as hypocrites, of gloomy aspect: for they conceal their faces that they might appear to men fasting. Verily I say to you, That they have their reward. 17 And thou fasting, anoint thy head, and wash thy face; 18 That thou mightest not appear to men fasting, but to thy Father which in secret; and thy Father which in secret, will give back to thee openly. 19 Treasure not up to you treasures upon earth, where moth and gnawing destroy, and thieves dig through and steal: 20 But treasure to you treasures in heaven, where neither moth, nor gnawing destroy; and where thieves dig not 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 light. 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be dark. If therefore the light which in thee is darkness, how much the darkness 24 None can serve two lords: for either he will hate one and love the other; or hold firmly to one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. 25 For this I say to you, Be not anxious about your soul, what ye eat, and what ye drink; nor about your body, what ye put on. Is not the soul more than food, and the body than dress? 26 Look ye upon the fowls of heaven; for they neither sow, nor reap, nor collect into stores; and your heavenly Father nourishes them. Do ye not rather differ from them 27 Which of you, being anxious, can add one cubit to his size? 28 And about dress, why are ye anxious? Consider the white lilies of the field, how they grow; they are not wearied, neither do they spin: 29 And I say to you that neither Solomon in all his glory was surrounded as one of these. 30 And if the grass of the field, being this day, and to morrow cast into the furnace, God so clothes much rather you, ye of little faith! 31 Therefore be ye not anxious, saying: What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, What shall we put round us? 32 For all these the nations seek for; for your heavenly Father knows that ye have need of all these. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his justice, and all these shall be added to you. 34 Therefore should ye not be anxious about the morrow: for the morrow shall be anxious about the things of itself. Sufficient for the day its evil.

Matthew 7:1-29

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged; and with what measure ye measure, it shall be repaid to you. 3 And why seest thou the mote which is in thy brother's eye, and the beam in thine eye thou observest not? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let go I will cast out the mote from thine eye: and behold a beam in thine eye. 5 Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam from thine eye, and thou shalt see clearly to cast out the mote from thy brother's eye. 6 Ye should not give the holy thing to dogs neither should ye cast your pearls before swine, lest they tread them down with their feet, and having turned, should rend yon. 7 Ask, and it shall be given you. Seek, and ye shall find. Knock, and it shall be opened to you. 8 For everyone asking, receives and he seeking, finds; and to him knocking shall be opened. 9 Or what man is of you, which, if his son ask bread, he will not give him a stone? 10 And if he ask a fish, he will not give him a serpent? 11 If ye, therefore, being evil, know to give good gifts to your children how much more will your Father which is in the heavens give good things to those asking him? 12 Therefore all whatever ye would that men should do to you, so also do ye to them; for this is the law and the prophets. 13 Enter ye in through the strait gate, for broad the gate and spacious the way leading to destruction, and many are they coming in through it. 14 For strait the gate and afflicted the way leading into life, and few are they finding it. 15 And hold from false prophets which come in to you in sheep's dresses, but within they are rapacious wolves. 16 By their fruits shall ye know them. Far from it, do they gather grapes from thorns, or figs from caltrops 17 So every good tree makes good fruits; but the rotten tree makes evil fruits. 18 A good tree cannot make evil fruits, nor a rotten tree make good fruits. 19 Every tree not making good fruit is cut off, and cast into fire. 20 Wherefore from their fruits shall ye know them. 21 Not every one saying to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of the heavens; but he doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name, and in thy name have we cast out evil spirits, and in thy name done many powers? 23 And then shall I confess to them that I never knew you. Go away from me, ye working iniqnity. 24 Therefore, every one which hears these my words and does them, I will liken him to a discerning man which built his house upon the rock. 25 And the rain descended, and rivers came, and winds blew, and fell upon that house, and it fell not, for it was founded upon the rock. 26 And every one hearing these my words and doing them not, shall be likened to a foolish man, which built his house upon sand. 27 And the rain descended, and rivers came, and winds blew and struck upon that house, and it fell, and great was its fall. 28 And it was when Jesus finished these words, the crowds were struck with amazement at his teaching: 29 For he was teaching them as having power, and not as the scribes.

Luke 10:30-37

30 And Jesus having replied said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers : and having stripped him, and laid on blows, they departed, leaving him half dead. 31 And by accident a certain priest went down in that way : and having seen him, went on the opposite side. 32 And likewise also a Levite, having been in the place, having come and seen him, went on the opposite side. 33 And a certain Samaritan, travelling, came to him : and having seen him, felt compassion. 34 And having come near, he bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and having mounted him upon his own animal, he brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 And upon the morrow, he having come forth, taking out two drachmas, he gave to the inn-keeper, and said to him, Take care, of him; and whatever thou spendest besides, I, in my coming back, will repay thee. 36 Which then of these three seems to thee to have been neighbor to him fallen among rubbers.? 37 And he said, He having done mercy with him. Then said Jesus to him, Go thou, and do likewise.

James 5:1-20

1 Come on now, ye rich, weep, uttering loud cries of grief for the misfortunes coming upon you. 2 Your riches have become corrupted, and your garments have been moth eaten; 3 Your gold and silver is become rusty; and their rust shall be for a witness to you, and shall eat your flesh as fire. Ye have gathered up treasures in the last days. 4 Behold, the hire of laborers having reaped your farms, withheld by you, cries out, and the cries of the reapers have entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. 5 Ye have led a luxurious life upon the earth, and have rioted in luxury; ye have nourished your hearts, as in the day of slaughter. 6 Ye have condemned, ye have killed the just one; and he resists you not. 7 Therefore be longsuffering, brethren, even to the arrival of the Lord. Behold, the farmer awaits the precious fruit of the earth, being longsuffering for it, even till he should receive the early and late rain. 8 Be longsuffering, ye also; make your hearts firm: for the arrival of the Lord has drawn near. 9 Groan not against one another, brethren, that ye be not condemned: behold, the judge stands before the door. 10 Take a pattern of affliction, my brethren, and of longsuffering, the prophets, who spake in the name of the Lord. 11 Behold, we esteem those enduring happy. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and ye see the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful. 12 And before all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, nor by earth, nor any other oath: and let your yea be yea; and nay, nay; that ye fall not under. judgment. 13 Does any suffer among you? let him pray. Is any cheerful? let him play on the harp. 14 Is any sick among you let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, having anointed him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15 And the prayer of faith shall save him being sick, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he should have wrought sins, it shall be remitted to him. 16 Acknowledge your faults to one another, and pray for one another, that ye might be healed. The prayer of the just, being energetic, is very powerful. 17 Elias was a man having similar feelings with us, and in prayer he prayed for it not to rain: and it rained not upon the earth for three years and six months. 18 And again he prayed, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth shot forth her fruit. 19 Brethren, if any among you be led astray from the truth, and any should turn him back; 20 Let him know, that he having turned the sinful from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall cover a multitude of sins.

Deuteronomy 4:2

2 Ye shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, and ye shall not take away from it., to watch the commands of Jehovah your God which I am commanding you.

Romans 12:17

17 Giving hack evil for evil to none. Providing good things before all men.

James 3:9-12

9 With it we praise the God and Father; and with it we curse men, those made according to the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same month comes forth blessing and cursing. There is no need, my brethren, for these things so to be. 11 Much less from the same aperture does a fountain bubble out sweet and bitter? 12 The fig tree, my brethren, cannot make olives, or the vine, figs: so no fountain can make salt and sweet water.

John 18:36

36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, my servants had contended, that I be not delivered to the Jews; and now my kingdom is not hence.

Galatians 5:22-23

22 And the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such is no law.

Proverbs 3:30

30 Thou shalt not contend with man to no purpose, if he did thee no evil

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I have been the brass of echoes, and the shouting cymbal. 2 And if I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries, and all knowledge; and if I have all faith to remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing. 3 And if I feed out all my goods, and if I deliver my body that I be burned, and have not love, I am profited nothing. 4 Love is slow to anger, possesses kindness; love envies not; love vaunts not itself, is not puffed up, 5 It demeans itself not unbecomingly, seeks not the things of itself, is not irritated, reckons no evil; 6 Rejoices not at injustice, and rejoices with the truth; 7 Covers all things, believes all, hopes all things, endures all. ' 8 Love never falters: but whether gifts of prophecies, they shall be left unemployed; whether tongues, they shall cease; whether knowledge, it shall be left unemployed. 9 For we know by parts, and we prophesy by parts. 10 And when the perfected come, then shall that by parts be left unemployed. 11 When I was a child, as a child I spake, as a child I thought, as a child I reckoned: and when I had become a man, I left unemployed the things of a child. 12 For now we see by a mirror in an enigma; then face to face: now I know by parts; and then shall I know as I was known. 13 And now remains faith, hope, love, these three; and the greater of these, love.

Romans 14:19

19 So therefore, let us pursue the things of peace, and the things for the building up for one another.

19 Avenging not yourselves, beloved, but give ye place to anger: for it has been written, Vengeance to me; I will repay, says the Lord.

14 Do ye all things without murmurings and discussions:

23 And silly and ignorant questions refuse, knowing that they produce strifes. 24 And the servant of the Lord must not contend; but be gentle to all, giving instruction, enduring evil,
