1 There was a certain man in the land of Ausis, whose name was Job; and than man was true, blameless, righteous, and godly, abstaining from everything evil. 2 And he had seven sons and three daughters. 3 And his cattle consisted of seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen, five hundred she-asses in the pastures, and a very great household, and he had a great husbandry on the earth; and that man was most noble of the men of the east. 4 And his sons visiting one another prepared a banquet every day, taking with them also their three sisters to eat and drink with them. 5 And when the days of the banquet were completed, Job sent and purified them, having risen up in the morning, and offered sacrifices for them, according to their number, and one calf for a sin-offering for their souls: for Job said, Lest peradventure my sons have thought evil in their minds against God. Thus, then Job did continually. 6 And it came to pass on a day, that behold, the angels of God came to stand before the Lord, and the devil came with them. 7 And the Lord said to the devil, Whence art thou come? And the devil answered the Lord, and said, I am come from compassing the earth, and walking up and down in the world. 8 And the Lord said to him, Hast thou diligently considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a man blameless, true, godly, abstaining from everything evil? 9 Then the devil answered, and said before the Lord, Does Job worship the Lord for nothing? 10 Hast thou not made a hedge about him, and about his household, and all his possessions round about? and hast thou not blessed the works of his hands, and multiplied his cattle upon the land? 11 But put forth thine hand, and touch all that he has: verily he will bless thee to thy face. 12 Then the Lord said to the devil, Behold, I give into thine hand all that he has, but touch not himself. So the devil went out from the presence of the Lord. 13 And it came to pass on a certain day, that Job's sons and his daughters were drinking wine in the house of their elder brother. 14 And, behold, there came a messenger to job, and said to him, The yokes of oxen were ploughing, and the she-asses were feeding near them; 15 and the spoilers came and took them for a prey, and slew the servants with the sword; and I having escaped alone am come to tell thee. 16 While he was yet speaking, there came another messenger, and said to Job, Fire has fallen from heaven, and burnt up the sheep, and devoured the shepherds like wise; and I having escaped alone am come to tell thee. 17 While he was yet speaking, there came another messenger, and said to Job, The horsemen formed three companies against us, and surrounded the camels, and took them for a prey, and slew the servants with the sword; and I only escaped, and am come to tell thee. 18 While he is yet speaking, another messenger comes, saying to Job, While thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking with their elder brother, 19 suddenly a great wind came on from the desert, and caught the four corners of the house, and the house fell upon thy children, and they are dead; and I have escaped alone, and am come to tell thee. 20 So Job arose, and rent his garments, and shaved the hair of his head, and fell on the earth, and worshipped, 21 and said, I myself came forth naked from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither; the Lord gave, the Lord has taken away: as it seemed good to the Lord, so has it come to pass; blessed be the name of the Lord. 22 In all these events that befell him Job sinned not at all before the Lord, and did not impute folly to God.
Bible verses about "morning prayer" | Brenton
1 For the end, a Psalm of David, concerning her that inherits. Hearken to my words, O Lord, attend to my cry. 2 Attend to the voice of my supplication, my King, and my God: for to thee, O Lord, will I pray. 3 In the morning thou shalt hear my voice: in the morning will I wait upon thee, and will look up. 4 For thou art not a god that desires iniquity; neither shall the worker of wickedness dwell with thee. 5 Neither shall the transgressors continue in thy sight: thou hatest, O Lord, all them that work iniquity. 6 Thou wilt destroy all that speak falsehood: the Lord abhors the bloody and deceitful man. 7 But I will enter into thine house in the multitude of thy mercy: I will worship in thy fear toward thy holy temple. 8 Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make my way plain before thy face. 9 For there is no truth in their mouth; their heart is vain; their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit. 10 Judge them, O God; let them fail of their counsels: cast them out according to the abundance of their ungodliness; for they have provoked thee, O Lord. 11 But let all that trust on thee be glad in thee: they shall exult for ever, and thou shalt dwell among them; and all that love thy name shall rejoice in thee. 12 For thou, Lord, shalt bless the righteous: thou hast compassed us as with a shield of favour.
7 But I will enter into thine house in the multitude of thy mercy: I will worship in thy fear toward thy holy temple.
1 (50:1) For the end, a Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came to him, when he had gone to Bersabee. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy great mercy; and according to the multitude of thy compassions blot out my transgression. 2 (50:2) Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. 3 (50:3) For I am conscious of mine iniquity; and my sin is continually before me. 4 (50:4) Against thee only have I sinned, and done evil before thee: that thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. 5 (50:5) For, behold, I was conceived in iniquities, and in sins did my mother conceive me. 6 (50:6) For, behold, thou lovest truth: thou hast manifested to me the secret and hidden things of thy wisdom. 7 (50:7) Thou shalt sprinkle me with hyssop, and I shall be purified: thou shalt wash me, and I shall be made whiter than snow. 8 (50:8) Thou shalt cause me to hear gladness and joy: the afflicted bones shall rejoice. 9 (50:9) Turn away thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. 10 (50:10) Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit in my inward parts. 11 (50:11) Cast me not away from thy presence; and remove not thy holy Spirit from me. 12 (50:12) Restore to me the joy of thy salvation: establish me with thy directing Spirit. 13 (50:13) Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and ungodly men shall turn to thee. 14 (50:14) Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation: and my tongue shall joyfully declare thy righteousness. 15 (50:15) O Lord, thou shalt open my lips; and my mouth shall declare thy praise. 16 (50:16) For if thou desiredst sacrifice, I would have given it: thou wilt not take pleasure in whole-burnt-offerings. 17 (50:17) Sacrifice to God is a broken spirit: a broken and humbled heart God will not despise. 18 (50:18) Do good, O Lord, to Sion in thy good pleasure; and let the walls of Jerusalem be built. 19 (50:19) Then shalt thou be pleased with a sacrifice of righteousness, offering, and whole-burnt-sacrifices: then shall they offer calves upon thine altar.
30 (103:30) Thou shalt send forth thy Spirit, and they shall be created; and thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
1 In the beginning God made the heaven and the earth. 2 But the earth was unsightly and unfurnished, and darkness was over the deep, and the Spirit of God moved over the water. 3 And God said, Let there be light, and there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good, and God divided between the light and the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night, and there was evening and there was morning, the first day. 6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the water, and let it be a division between water and water, and it was so. 7 And God made the firmament, and God divided between the water which was under the firmament and the water which was above the firmament. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven, and God saw that it was good, and there was evening and there was morning, the second day. 9 And God said, Let the water which is under the heaven be collected into one place, and let the dry land appear, and it was so. And the water which was under the heaven was collected into its places, and the dry land appeared. 10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gatherings of the waters he called Seas, and God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the herb of grass bearing seed according to its kind and according to its likeness, and the fruit-tree bearing fruit whose seed is in it, according to its kind on the earth, and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth the herb of grass bearing seed according to its kind and according to its likeness, and the fruit tree bearing fruit whose seed is in it, according to its kind on the earth, and God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, the third day. 14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, to divide between day and night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and for years. 15 And let them be for light in the firmament of the heaven, so as to shine upon the earth, and it was so. 16 And God made the two great lights, the greater light for regulating the day and the lesser light for regulating the night, the stars also. 17 And God placed them in the firmament of the heaven, so as to shine upon the earth, 18 and to regulate day and night, and to divide between the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day. 20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth reptiles having life, and winged creatures flying above the earth in the firmament of heaven, and it was so. 21 And God made great whales, and every living reptile, which the waters brought forth according to their kinds, and every creature that flies with wings according to its kind, and God saw that they were good. 22 And God blessed them saying, Increase and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let the creatures that fly be multiplied on the earth. 23 And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day. 24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind, quadrupeds and reptiles and wild beasts of the earth according to their kind, and it was so. 25 And God made the wild beasts of the earth according to their kind, and cattle according to their kind, and all the reptiles of the earth according to their kind, and God saw that they were good. 26 And God said, Let us make man according to our image and likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the flying creatures of heaven, and over the cattle and all the earth, and over all the reptiles that creep on the earth. 27 And God made man, according to the image of God he made him, male and female he made them. 28 And God blessed them, saying, Increase and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the seas and flying creatures of heaven, and all the cattle and all the earth, and all the reptiles that creep on the earth. 29 And God said, Behold I have given to you every seed-bearing herb sowing seed which is upon all the earth, and every tree which has in itself the fruit of seed that is sown, to you it shall be for food. 30 And to all the wild beasts of the earth, and to all the flying creatures of heaven, and to every reptile creeping on the earth, which has in itself the breath of life, even every green plant for food; and it was so. 31 And God saw all the things that he had made, and, behold, they were very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

5 (90:5) Thou shalt not be afraid of terror by night; nor of the arrow flying by day; 6 (90:6) nor of the evil thing that walks in darkness; nor of calamity, and the evil spirit at noon-day. 7 (90:7) A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
17 I love those that love me; and they that seek me shall find me.

1 (62:1) A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Idumea. O God, my God, I cry to thee early; my soul has thirsted for thee: how often has my flesh longed after thee, in a barren and trackless and dry land! 2 (62:2) Thus have I appeared before thee in the sanctuary, that I might see thy power and thy glory. 3 (62:3) For thy mercy is better than life: my lips shall praise thee. 4 (62:4) Thus will I bless thee during my life: I will lift up my hands in thy name. 5 (62:5) Let my soul be filled as with marrow and fatness; and my joyful lips shall praise thy name. 6 (62:6) Forasmuch as I have remembered thee on my bed: in the early seasons I have meditated on thee. 7 (62:7) For thou hast been my helper, and in the shelter of thy wings will I rejoice. 8 (62:8) My soul has kept very close behind thee: thy right hand has upheld me. 9 (62:9) But they vainly sought after my soul; they shall go into the lowest parts o the earth. 10 (62:10) They shall be delivered up to the power of the sword; they shall be portions for foxes. 11 (62:11) But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that swears by him shall be praised; for the mouth of them that speak unjust things has been stopped.
3 In the morning thou shalt hear my voice: in the morning will I wait upon thee, and will look up.
