7 The law of Jehovah is perfect, converting the soul. The testimony of Jehovah is sure, making the simple wise. 8 The precepts of Jehovah are right, rejoicing the heart; the commands of Jehovah are pure, giving light to the eyes. 9 The fear of Jehovah is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of Jehovah are true, they are righteous altogether. 10 They are more precious than gold, even much fine gold, and sweeter than honey and drops from the honeycomb. 11 Also Your servant is warned by them; in keeping of them is great reward.
Bible verses about "reading gods word" | LITV
8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says Jehovah.
29 And answering, Jesus said to them, You err, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God.
26 that He might sanctify it, cleansing it by the washing of the water in the Word,
1 The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. 2 Hear, O heavens, and listen, O earth! For Jehovah has spoken: I have nursed and brought up sons, but they have rebelled against Me. 3 The ox knows his owner, and the ass his master's manger, but Israel does not know; My people have not understood. 4 Woe, sinful nation, a people heavy with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, sons who corrupt! They have forsaken Jehovah; they have scorned the Holy One of Israel. They are estranged backward. 5 Why will you be stricken any more? Will you continue the revolt? The whole head is sick, and the whole heart is faint. 6 From the sole of the foot even to the head, no soundness is in it; only a wound and a stripe and a fresh blow; they have not been closed, nor bound up; nor was it softened with oil. 7 Your land is a desolation; your cities burned with fire. Foreigners devour your land before you; and behold, ruin, as overthrown by foreigners. 8 And the daughter of Zion is left a booth in a vineyard, like a hut in a cucumber field, like a besieged city. 9 Except Jehovah of hosts had left a remnant for us, a few, we would be as Sodom; we would be as Gomorrah. 10 Hear the word of Jehovah, rulers of Sodom. Listen to the law of our God, people of Gomorrah. 11 What good to Me are your many sacrifices, says Jehovah? I am full of burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fattened cattle, and the blood of bulls; nor do I delight in the blood of lambs and he goats. 12 When you come to see My face, who has required this at your hand, to trample My courts? 13 Do not add to bringing vain sacrifice; its incense is an abomination to Me. I cannot endure the new moon and sabbath, the going to meeting, and the evil assembly. 14 My soul hates your new moons and your appointed feasts. They are a burden to Me. I am weary of bearing them . 15 And when you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you. Yea, when you multiply prayer, I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood. 16 Wash yourselves, purify yourselves. Put away the evil of your doings from My sight; stop doing evil. 17 Learn to do good, seek justice, reprove the oppressor, judge the orphan, strive for the widow. 18 Come now and let us reason together, says Jehovah: Though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red as the crimson, they shall be like wool. 19 If you are willing and hear, you shall eat the good of the land. 20 But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword; for the mouth of Jehovah has spoken. 21 Oh how the faithful city has become a harlot! She was full of justice; righteousness lodged in it. But now, murderers! 22 Your silver has become dross; your wine is diluted with water. 23 Your princes are rebellious and companions of thieves. Everyone loves a bribe, and is pursuing rewards. They do not judge the orphan, nor does the cause of the widow come to them, 24 and says the Lord, Jehovah of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Alas! I will be eased of My foes, and avenge Myself of My enemies. 25 And I will return My hand on you, and refine your dross, as with lye, and take away all your alloy. 26 And I will return your judges as at the first; and your advisors, as at the beginning; then you shall be called the city of righteousness, a faithful town. 27 Zion shall be redeemed with justice, and her returning ones with righteousness. 28 And the ruin of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together. And those who forsake Jehovah shall be consumed. 29 For they shall be ashamed of the trees which you lusted after; and you shall be ashamed of the gardens that you have chosen. 30 For you shall be like a tree whose leaf fades, and like a garden that has no water in it. 31 And the strong shall be for tow, and his work for a spark; and they shall burn both together; and no one shall quench them .
1 And He said to me, Son of man, eat what you find. Eat this roll, and go speak to the house of Israel. 2 So I opened my mouth, and He made me eat that roll. 3 And He said to me, Son of man, make your belly eat, and fill your bowels with the roll, this that I give to you. And I ate, and it was in my mouth like honey for sweetness. 4 And He said to me, Son of man, Go! Come to the house of Israel and speak with My words to them. 5 For you are not sent to a people of deep lip and hardness of tongue, but to the house of Israel; 6 not to many peoples of deep lip and of a hard tongue, whose words you cannot hear. If rather I had sent you to them, they would have listened to you. 7 But the house of Israel is not willing to listen to you, for they are not willing to listen to Me, for all the house of Israel are strong of forehead and hard of heart. 8 Behold, I have made your face strong over against their faces, and your forehead strong over against their foreheads. 9 I have made your forehead as an adamant harder than flint. Do not fear them, and do not be frightened by their faces, though they are a house of rebellion. 10 And He said to me, Son of man, all My words which I speak to you, receive into your heart, and hear with your ears. 11 And go! Come to the exiles, to the sons of your people, and speak to them, and say to them, So says the Lord Jehovah, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear. 12 And the Spirit lifted me up, and I heard behind me a sound of a great tumult, saying, Blessed be the glory of Jehovah from His place! 13 And there was the sound of the wings of the living creatures touching each one to the other, and the sound of the wheels along with them, and the sound of a great tumult. 14 So the Spirit lifted me up and took me, and I went bitterly in the heat of my spirit, but the hand of Jehovah was strong upon me. 15 Then I came to the exiles at Tel-abib, those dwelling by the river Chebar. And I sat there where they were sitting. I also dwelt there seven days, being benumbed among them. 16 And it happened at the end of the seven days, even it happened that the word of Jehovah came to me, saying, 17 Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. And hear the word of My mouth, and warn them from Me. 18 In My saying to the wicked, Surely you shall die; and you do not warn him, and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, he, the wicked, shall die in his iniquity. But I will require his blood at your hand. 19 And you, because you have warned the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his way, he, the wicked, shall die in his iniquity. But you have delivered your soul. 20 And when the righteous turns from his righteousness and does injustice, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die. Since you have not warned him, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered. But I will require his blood at your hand. 21 But you, because you warned him, the righteous, so that the righteous should not sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he is warned. And you have delivered your soul. 22 And the hand of Jehovah was on me there. And He said to me, Rise up, go forth into the plain, and I will speak with you there. 23 And I rose up and went forth into the plain. And, behold, there the glory of Jehovah was standing, like the glory which I saw by the river Chebar. And I fell on my face. 24 And the Spirit entered into me and stood me on my feet and spoke with me. And He said to me, Come, shut yourself within your house. 25 But you, son of man, behold, they shall put on you cords and shall bind you with them, and you shall not go out among them. 26 And I will make your tongue cling to your palate, and you shall be dumb. And there shall not be to them a reproving man. For they are a rebellious house. 27 But in My speaking with you, I will open your mouth, and you shall say to them, So says the Lord Jehovah. He who hears, let him hear; and he who stops, let him stop. For they are a rebellious house.
32 And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
1 To the chief musician. For the sons of Korah; A song. For the Virgins. God is our refuge and strength, very much found to be a help in distresses.
11 And these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, for they received the Word with all readiness, daily examining the Scriptures if these things are so .
10 For the rest, my brothers, be made powerful in the Lord and in the might of His strength. 11 Put on all the armor of God, for you to be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil, 12 because we are not wrestling against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world's rulers, of the darkness of this age, against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenlies. 13 Because of this, take up all of the armor of God that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having worked out all things, to stand. 14 Then stand firm, "having girded your loins about with truth" and having put "on the breastplate of righteousness," Isa. 11:5; 59:17 15 and having shod the feet with the preparation of the "gospel of peace." Isa. 52:7 16 Above all, taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the darts of the evil one, having been made fiery. 17 Also, take "the helmet of salvation," and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God; Isa. 59:17 LXX-Isa. 11:4; MT-Isa. 49:2; LXX and MT-Hos. 6:5
10 For as the rain and the snow comes down from the heavens and do not return there, except it waters the earth and make it bring forth and bud, and give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, 11 so shall My word be, which goes out of My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in what I sent it to do!
35 The heaven and the earth will pass away, but My words will never ever pass away.
1 A Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to Him to show to His slaves things which must occur quickly. And He signified by sending through His angel to His slave, John, 2 who testified of the Word of God and the witness of Jesus Christ, even as many things as he saw. 3 Blessed is the one reading, and those hearing the words of this prophecy, and keeping the things having been written; for the time is near. 4 John to the seven churches in Asia: Grace to you, and peace, from the One who is, and who was, and who is coming, and from the seven spirits which are before His throne; 5 even from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the First-born out of the dead, and the Ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him loving us and washing us from our sins by His blood, 6 and made us kings and priests to God, even His Father. To Him is the glory and the might forever and ever. Amen. 7 "Behold, He comes with the clouds," and "every eye will see Him, and the ones who pierced" Him, and all the tribes of the earth "will wail on account of Him." Yes, Amen. Dan. 7:13; Zech. 12:10 8 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, says the Lord, the One who is, and who was, and who is coming, the Almighty. 9 I, even your brother John, and co-sharer in the affliction, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, came to be in the island being called Patmos because of the Word of God, and because of the witness of Jesus Christ. 10 I came to be in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 saying, I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last; also, What you see, write in a scroll, and send to the seven churches of Asia: to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamos, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea. 12 And I turned to see the voice which spoke with me. 13 And having turned, I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of man, having been clothed to the feet, and having been girded with a golden girdle at the breasts. 14 And the hairs of His head were white as white wool, as snow, and His eyes as a flame of fire; 15 and His feet like burnished brass having been fired in a furnace; and His voice as a sound of many waters; 16 and having in His right hand seven stars; and a sharp, two-edged sword proceeding out of His mouth, and His face shining as the sun in its power. 17 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet, as dead. And He put His right hand on me, saying to me, Do not fear. I am the First and the Last, 18 and the Living One; and I became dead; and, behold, I am living forever and ever. Amen. And I have the keys to Hades, and of death. 19 Write what things you saw, and what things are, and what things are about to occur after these things. 20 The mystery of the seven stars which you saw on My right, and the seven golden lampstands: the seven stars are angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands you saw are seven churches.
5 But also in this very thing, bringing in all diligence, filling in your faith with virtue; and virtue with knowledge;
9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and brave. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for Jehovah your God is with you in all places where you go.
4 In God I will praise His word; in God I have trusted; I will not fear; what will flesh do to me?
7 If you remain in Me, and My words remain in you, whatever you desire you will ask, and it shall happen to you.
12 nor have I departed from the command of His lips; I treasured the words of His mouth more than my portion.
1 Aleph Blessed are the upright in the way, who walk in the law of Jehovah. 2 Blessed are those keeping His testimonies, who seek Him with the whole heart. 3 They also do not work evil; they walk in His way. 4 You have commanded to carefully keep Your precepts. 5 O that my ways were fixed to keep Your statutes! 6 Then I shall not be ashamed, when I look to all Your commands. 7 I will thank You with integrity of heart, in my learning the judgments of Your righteousness. 8 I will keep Your statutes; do not forsake me utterly. 9 Beth By what shall a young man purify his way, to keep it according to Your word? 10 I have sought You with my whole heart; do not let me wander from Your commands. 11 I have hidden Your word in my heart, that I might not sin against You. 12 Blessed are you, O Jehovah; teach me Your statutes. 13 I have declared all the judgments of Your mouth with my lips; 14 I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies as over all riches. 15 I will meditate in Your precepts and I will regard Your ways. 16 I will delight myself in Your statutes. I will not forget Your word. 17 Gimel. Deal bountifully with Your servant that I may live, and I will keep Your word. 18 Open my eyes and I will see wonderful things from Your law. 19 I am an alien in the earth; hide not Your commandments from me. 20 My soul is breaking for the longing to Your judgments in every season. 21 You have rebuked the proud, the cursed ones who go astray from Your commands. 22 Roll from me reproach and scorn; for I have kept Your testimonies. 23 Princes also sat, speaking against me; but Your servant meditates on Your laws. 24 Your testimonies also are my delight and my counselors. 25 Daleth. My soul clings to the dust; give me life according to Your word. 26 I have declared my ways, and You answered me; teach me Your statutes. 27 Make me understand the way of Your precepts, and I will meditate on Your wonders. 28 My soul drops with grief; Lift me up according to Your word. 29 Remove from me the way of lying, and favor me with Your law. 30 I have chosen the way of truth; I have held Your judgments level; 31 I have clung to Your testimonies; O Jehovah, do not shame me. 32 I will run the way of Your commands, for You shall enlarge my heart. 33 He. O Jehovah, teach me the way of Your statutes, and I will keep it to the end. 34 Make me understand and I will keep Your law, and observe it with the whole heart. 35 Make me walk in the way of Your commands, for in it I delight. 36 Bow my heart to Your testimonies, and not to unjust gain. 37 Turn my eyes from seeing vanity; in Your way give me life. 38 Make Your word sure to Your servant, who is devoted to Your fear. 39 Turn away my shame which I fear; for Your judgments are good. 40 Behold, I have longed for Your precepts; grant to me life in Your righteousness. 41 Vau. By Your word, according to Your salvation, let Your mercies come to me, O Jehovah. 42 And I will answer my reprover a word; for I trust in Your word. 43 And do not take the word of truth completely out of my mouth; for I have hoped in Your judgments. 44 And I shall keep Your law continually, forever and ever. 45 And I will walk in a wide space, for I seek Your commands. 46 And I will speak of Your testimonies before kings, and will not be ashamed. 47 And I will delight myself in Your commandments, which I have loved. 48 And I will lift up my hands to Your commandments that I love; and I will meditate on Your statutes. 49 Zayin. Remember the word to Your servant, on which You made me hope. 50 This is my comfort in my affliction; for Your word has given me life. 51 The proud have scorned me utterly; I have not veered from Your law. 52 I remembered Your judgments from of old, O Jehovah, and I take comfort. 53 Hot zeal has seized me because of the wicked forsaking Your law. 54 Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimages. 55 O Jehovah, I have remembered Your name in the night and have kept Your law. 56 This was done to me, because I kept Your commandments. 57 Cheth. Jehovah is my portion; I have said to keep Your words. 58 I entreated Your face with all my heart; favor me according to Your word. 59 I mused on my ways and turned my feet to Your testimonies. 60 I hurried and delayed not to keep Your commands. 61 The cords of the wicked encircle me; I have not forgotten Your law. 62 At halves of the night I will rise to give thanks to You because of Your righteous judgments. 63 I am a companion of all who fear You; yea, of those who keep Your precepts. 64 O Jehovah, the earth is full of Your mercy; teach me Your statutes. 65 Teth. You have done good with Your servant, O Jehovah, by Your word. 66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge, for I have believed Your commands. 67 Before I was afflicted I went astray; but now I have kept Your word. 68 You are good and do good; teach me Your statutes. 69 The proud have forged a lie against me; I will keep Your precepts with all my heart. 70 Their heart is like fat, without feeling; I delight in Your law. 71 For my good for me that I was afflicted, to learn Your statutes. 72 The law of Your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver. 73 Jod. Your hands made me and fixed me; give me discernment that I may learn Your commands. 74 The ones fearing You will see me and rejoice; for I hoped in Your word. 75 I know, O Jehovah, Your judgments are right; and in fidelity You afflicted me. 76 Please let Your mercy be for my comfort, by Your word to Your servant. 77 Let Your mercies come to me that I may live; for Your law is my delight. 78 Let the proud be ashamed, for with lies they perverted me; I will muse on Your precepts. 79 Let fearers of You turn to me, and knowers of Your testimonies. 80 Let my heart be blameless in Your statutes, that I may not be ashamed. 81 Kaph. My soul is being consumed for Your salvation; I hope in Your word. 82 My eyes fail for Your word, saying, When will You comfort me? 83 For I am like a wineskin in the smoke; I do not forget Your statutes. 84 As what are the days of Your servant? When will You execute judgment on my persecutors? 85 The proud have dug pits for me which are not according to Your law. 86 All Your commands are faithful; they persecute me with lying; help me! 87 In a little they had finished me on earth; but I did not forsake Your precepts. 88 Give me life according to Your mercy, and I will keep the testimonies of Your mouth. 89 Lamed. Your Word is settled in Heaven forever, O Jehovah. 90 Your fidelity is to generation and generation; You founded the earth, and it stands. 91 They stand by Your judgments to this day, for all are Your servants. 92 If Your law had not been my delight, then I had perished in my grief. 93 I will never forget Your precepts; for with them You gave me life. 94 I am Yours save me; for I have sought Your precepts. 95 The wicked waited for me, to destroy me; I will muse on Your testimonies. 96 I have seen an end to all perfection; Your command is exceedingly broad. 97 Mem. Oh how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day. 98 You make me wiser than my enemies by Your commands; for they are forever mine. 99 I have more wisdom than all my teachers; for Your testimonies are a meditation to me. 100 I understand more than the aged, for I keep Your precepts. 101 I have kept my feet from every evil way, to keep Your word. 102 I turned not from Your judgments; for You have taught me. 103 How sweet are Your words to my palate! More than honey to my mouth! 104 By Your precepts I know; so then I hate every false way. 105 Nun. Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. 106 I have sworn and I rise to it, to keep Your righteous judgments. 107 I am greatly afflicted; O Jehovah, give me life according to Your word. 108 Please, O Jehovah, accept the free offering of my mouth, and teach me Your judgments. 109 My life is in my hand continually, yet I do not forget Your law. 110 The wicked have laid a snare for me; yet I do not wander from Your precepts. 111 I have inherited Your testimonies forever; for they are the rejoicing of my heart. 112 I have bowed my heart to do Your statutes always to the end. 113 Samech. I hate the halfhearted; but I love Your law. 114 You are my covert and my shield; I hope in Your word. 115 Depart from me, O evildoers, for I will keep my God's commands. 116 Uphold me by Your word, that I may live; and let me not be ashamed of my hope. 117 Hold me up and I will be saved; and I will always look to Your statutes. 118 You have trampled all who go astray from Your statutes for their deceit is falsehood. 119 As dross You have made all the wicked of the earth to cease; so I love Your testimonies. 120 My flesh has shivered because of Your fear; and I have feared Your judgments. 121 Ayin. I have done the just and right thing; do not leave me to my oppressors. 122 Be surety for Your servant for good; let not the proud oppress me. 123 My eyes fail for Your salvation, and for the word of Your righteousness. 124 Deal with Your servant by Your mercy; and teach me Your statutes. 125 I am Your servant; make me consider and I will know Your testimonies. 126 It is time for Jehovah to work; they have broken Your law. 127 So I have loved Your commands, more than gold, even fine gold. 128 So I count wholly right all the precepts; I have hated every false way. 129 Pe. Your testimonies are wonderful; so my soul keeps them. 130 The entering of Your word gives light, instructing the simple ones. 131 I opened my mouth and panted; for I longed for Your commands. 132 Turn to me and favor me, as is the way to those who love Your name. 133 Fix my steps in Your word; and let no evil rule over me. 134 Redeem me from the oppression of man; and I will keep Your precepts. 135 Make Your face shine on Your servant, and teach me Your statutes. 136 Rivers of waters run down my eyes for they do not keep Your law. 137 Tzaddi. O Jehovah, You are righteous, and Your judgments right. 138 You have enjoined Your testimonies as righteous and very faithful. 139 My zeal has eaten me up, for my enemies have forgotten Your word 140 Your word is pure and Your servant loves it. 141 I am small and despised; I do not forget Your precepts. 142 Your righteousness is forever, and Your law is truth. 143 Distress and anguish have found me; Your commands are my delight. 144 The righteousness of Your testimonies is everlasting; make me know and I will live. 145 Qoph. I cried with my whole heart; O Jehovah, answer me; I will keep Your statutes. 146 I cried to You; save me and I will keep Your testimonies. 147 I go before the dawn of day and cry; I hope in Your word. 148 My eyes go before the night watches, to meditate on Your word. 149 Hear my voice by Your mercy, O Jehovah; give me life by Your judgment. 150 The pursuers of mischief draw near; they are far from Your law. 151 You are near, O Jehovah, and all Your commands are truth. 152 Of old I have known from Your testimonies, for You have founded them forever. 153 Resh. Look on my affliction and deliver me; for I do not forget Your law. 154 Contend for my cause and redeem me; give me life according to Your word. 155 Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek Your statutes. 156 O Jehovah, Your tender mercies are great; give me life according to Your judgments. 157 My persecutors and enemies are many; I do not turn from Your testimonies. 158 I saw the traitors and was grieved, because they did not keep Your word. 159 See how I love Your precepts, O Jehovah; give me life according to Your mercy. 160 The sum of Your word is true; every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever. 161 Shin. Princes have persecuted me without cause; but my heart has feared at Your word. 162 I rejoice at Your word, as one who finds great spoil. 163 I hate and despise lying; but I love Your law. 164 I praise You seven times a day because of Your righteous judgments. 165 Great peace is to those who love Your law, and there is no stumblingblock to them. 166 O Jehovah, I have hoped for Your salvation, and have done Your precepts. 167 My soul has kept Your testimonies, and I love them very much; 168 I have kept Your commands and Your testimonies, for all my ways are before You. 169 Tau. Let my cry come near You, O Jehovah; give me wisdom according to Your word. 170 Let my prayer come before You; deliver me according to Your word. 171 My lips shall pour forth praise when You have taught me Your statutes. 172 My tongue shall answer Your word, for all Your commands are righteousness. 173 Let Your hand help me; for I have chosen Your precepts 174 I have longed for Your salvation, O Jehovah; and Your law is my delight. 175 Let my soul live and it will praise You; and let Your judgments help me. 176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek Your servant; for I do not forget Your commandments.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
15 Earnestly study to present yourself approved to God, a workman unashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.
7 Consider what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in all things.
2 But his delight is only in the law of Jehovah, and he meditates in His law day and night.
2 as newborn babes desire the pure soul-nourishing milk, that you may grow by it;
13 Until I come, attend to reading, to exhortation, to teaching.
18 Open my eyes and I will see wonderful things from Your law.
12 For the word of God is living, and powerfully working, and sharper than every two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of both soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge of the thoughts and intentions of the heart;
4 For whatever things were written before were written for our instruction, that through patience and encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
8 This book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, and you shall meditate on it by day and by night, so that you shall be on guard to do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall prosper your way, and then you shall act wisely.
4 But answering, He said, It has been written: "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word going out of the mouth of God." Deut. 8:3
