Exodus 20:1-26

1 ¶ And God spoke all these words, saying, 2 I am the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt out of the house of slavery. 3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above or that is in the earth beneath nor that is in the water under the earth. 5 Thou shalt not bow down to them nor serve them; for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons unto the third and fourth generation of those that hate me 6 and showing mercy unto thousands of generations of those that love me and keep my commandments. 7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain for the LORD will not hold guiltless anyone that takes his name in vain. 8 Thou shalt remember the sabbath day, to sanctify it. 9 Six days shalt thou labour and do all thy work; 10 but the seventh day shall be the sabbath of the LORD thy God; in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manslave, nor thy maidslave, nor thy beast, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; 11 for in six days the LORD made the heavens and earth, the sea, and all that is in them and rested the seventh day; therefore, the LORD blessed the sabbath day and sanctified it. 12 ¶ Honour thy father and thy mother that thy days may be lengthened upon the land which the LORD thy God gives thee. 13 Thou shalt not murder. 14 Thou shalt not commit adultery. 15 Thou shalt not steal. 16 Thou shalt not give false testimony against thy neighbour. 17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manslave, nor his maidslave, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s. 18 ¶ And all the people saw the thunderings and the lightnings and the noise of the trumpet and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood afar off. 19 And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us lest we die. 20 Then Moses said unto the people, Fear not, for God is come to prove you and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not. 21 Then the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the thick darkness where God was. 22 ¶ And the LORD said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the sons of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven. 23 Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye make unto you gods of gold. 24 An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me and shalt sacrifice thereon thy burnt offerings and thy peace offerings, thy sheep and thine oxen; in whatever place where I cause my name to be remembered, I will come unto thee, and I will bless thee. 25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone; for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it. 26 Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto my altar that thy nakedness not be discovered thereon.

Psalms 127:3-5

3 Behold, sons are a heritage of the LORD, and the fruit of the womb is to be desired. 4 As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the young men. 5 Happy is the man that has filled his quiver with them: he shall not be ashamed when he speaks with the enemies in the gate.

Jeremiah 1:5

5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the Gentiles.

Matthew 5:1-48

1 ¶ And seeing the multitudes, he went up into the mountain; and when he had sat down, his disciples came unto him; 2 and he opened his mouth and taught them, saying, 3 ¶ Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of the heavens. 4 Blessed are those that mourn, for they shall be comforted. 5 Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. 6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. 7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. 8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. 9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God. 10 Blessed are those who suffer persecution for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of the heavens. 11 Blessed are ye when men shall revile you and persecute you and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for my sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in the heavens; for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. 13 ¶ Ye are the salt of the earth, but if the salt has lost its savour, with what shall it be salted? From then on it is good for nothing, but to be cast out and to be trodden under foot of men. 14 Ye are the light of the world. A city set upon a mountain cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on the lampstand, and it gives light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in the heavens. 17 ¶ Think not that I am come to undo the law or the prophets; I am not come to undo, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Until heaven and earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall pass from the law until all is fulfilled. 19 Whosoever therefore shall undo one of these least commandments and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of the heavens; but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of the heavens. 20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of the heavens. 21 ¶ Ye have heard that it was said to the ancients, Thou shalt not commit murder, and whosoever shall commit murder shall be guilty of the judgment; 22 but I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother out of control shall be in danger of the judgment, and whosoever shall insult his brother shall be in danger of the council, but whosoever shall say, Thou art impious, shall be in danger of hell. 23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there remember that thy brother has something against thee; 24 leave thy gift there before the altar, and go; first restore friendship with thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. 25 Conciliate with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. 26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out of there, until thou hast paid the uttermost farthing. 27 ¶ Ye have heard that it was said to the ancients, Thou shalt not commit adultery; 28 but I say unto you, That whosoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart. 29 Therefore if thy right eye should bring thee occasion to stumble, pluck it out and cast it from thee; for it is better for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. 30 And if thy right hand should bring thee occasion to stumble, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is better for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. 31 It was also said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a bill of divorce; 32 but I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, except for the cause of fornication, causes her to commit adultery; and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced commits adultery. 33 ¶ Again, ye have heard that it was said to the ancients, Thou shalt not perjure thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths; 34 but I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by the heaven, for it is God’s throne, 35 nor by the earth, for it is his footstool, neither by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head because thou canst not make one hair white or black. 37 But let your communication be, Yes, yes; No, no; for whatsoever is more than this comes of evil. 38 ¶ Ye have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth; 39 but I say unto you, That ye resist not with evil, but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if anyone desires to sue thee at the law, and take away thy clothing, let him have thy cloak also. 41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him two. 42 Give to him that asks of thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. 43 ¶ Ye have heard that it was said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless those that curse you, do good to those that hate you, and pray for those who speak evil about you, and persecute you; 45 that ye may be sons of your Father who is in the heavens, for he makes his sun to rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love those who love you, what reward shall ye have? Do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye embrace your brethren only, what do ye more than others? Do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father who is in the heavens is perfect.

Luke 10:27

27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul and with all thy strength and with all thy understanding, and thy neighbour as thyself.

Luke 10:30-37

30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment and wounded him and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 And it so happened that a certain priest came down that way; and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 And likewise a Levite, when he came near the place and looked on him, he passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was; and when he saw him, he was moved with compassion 34 and went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast and brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two denarius and gave them to the host and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? 37 And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go and do thou likewise.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

2 Chronicles 17:1-19

1 ¶ And Jehoshaphat, his son, reigned in his stead and prevailed against Israel. 2 And he placed forces in all the fenced cities of Judah and set garrisons in the land of Judah and likewise in the cities of Ephraim, which Asa, his father had taken. 3 And the LORD was with Jehoshaphat because he walked in the first ways of his father David and sought not unto the Baalim 4 but sought the LORD God of his father and walked in his commandments, and not after the doings of Israel. 5 Therefore, the LORD confirmed the kingdom in his hand; and all Judah brought Jehoshaphat presents, and he had riches and glory in abundance. 6 And his heart was lifted up in the ways of the LORD, and he took away the high places and groves out of Judah. 7 Also in the third year of his reign he sent his princes, Benhail, Obadiah, Zechariah, Nethaneel, and Michaiah, to teach in the cities of Judah. 8 And with them he sent the Levites, Shemaiah, Nethaniah, Zebadiah, Asahel, Shemiramoth, Jehonathan, Adonijah, Tobijah, and Tobadonijah, Levites, and with them Elishama and Jehoram, priests. 9 And they taught in Judah and had the book of the law of the LORD with them and went about throughout all the cities of Judah and taught the people. 10 ¶ And the fear of the LORD fell upon all the kingdoms of the lands that were round about Judah, so that they did not dare to make war against Jehoshaphat. 11 And the Philistines brought Jehoshaphat presents and tribute of silver; and the Arabians brought him flocks, seven thousand seven hundred rams and seven thousand seven hundred he goats. 12 And Jehoshaphat waxed great exceedingly; and he built in Judah castles and cities of store. 13 And he had many works in the cities of Judah and men of war, mighty men of valour, in Jerusalem. 14 And these are the numbers of them according to the houses of their fathers: In Judah, princes of thousands; the prince Adnah and with him three hundred thousand mighty men of valour; 15 and after him, Prince Jehohanan and with him two hundred and eighty thousand; 16 after him, Amasiah the son of Zichri, who willingly offered himself unto the LORD and with him two hundred thousand mighty men of valour; 17 of Benjamin, Eliada, a mighty man of valour, and with him two hundred thousand armed with bow and shield; 18 after him, Jehozabad and with him one hundred and eighty thousand ready and prepared for the war. 19 These were servants of the king, besides those whom the king had put in the fenced cities throughout all Judah.

Psalms 119:111

111 ¶ I have taken thy testimonies as a heritage for ever; for they are the rejoicing of my heart.

1 Timothy 5:8

8 But if any provide not for his own and specially for those of his own house, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

Galatians 3:28

28 Here there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Deuteronomy 28:1-68

1 ¶ And it shall come to pass if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God to keep and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all the Gentiles of the earth; 2 and all these blessings shall come upon thee and overtake thee when thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God. 3 Blessed shalt thou be in the city and blessed shalt thou be in the field. 4 Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body and the fruit of thy ground and the fruit of thy beasts, the increase of thy cows, and the flocks of thy sheep. 5 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. 6 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. 7 The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face; they shall come out against thee one way and flee before thee seven ways. 8 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God gives thee. 9 The LORD shall confirm thee as his holy people, as he has sworn unto thee, when thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God and walk in his ways. 10 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD, and they shall be afraid of thee. 11 And the LORD shall cause thee to have good in abundance in the fruit of thy body and in the fruit of thy beasts and in the fruit of thy ground, upon the land which the LORD swore unto thy fathers to give thee. 12 The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven, to give the rain unto thy land in its season and to bless all the work of thine hand. And thou shalt lend unto many Gentiles, and thou shalt not borrow. 13 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail, and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath, when thou shalt hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to keep them and to fulfill them. 14 And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day to the right hand or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them. 15 ¶ And it shall come to pass if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep, to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee today, that all these curses shall come upon thee and overtake thee. 16 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field. 17 Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store. 18 Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy cows and the flocks of thy sheep. 19 Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out. 20 The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, destruction and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand to do, until thou art destroyed and perish quickly because of the wickedness of thy doings, by which thou hast forsaken me. 21 The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee until he has consumed thee from off the land into which thou dost enter to inherit it. 22 The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption and with a fever and with an inflammation and with an extreme burning and with the sword and with blight and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish. 23 And thy heavens which are over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron. 24 The LORD shall make the rain of thy land dust and ashes; from the heavens it shall come down upon thee, until thou art destroyed. 25 The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies; thou shalt go out one way against them and flee seven ways before them and shalt be an object of trembling unto all the kingdoms of the earth. 26 And thy carcase shall be food unto all fowls of the air and unto the beasts of the earth, and there shall be no one to frighten them away. 27 The LORD will smite thee with the boil of Egypt and with the hemorrhoids and with the scab and with the itch, of which thou canst not be healed. 28 The LORD shall smite thee with madness and blindness and astonishment of heart. 29 And thou shalt grope at noonday as the blind grope in the darkness, and thou shalt not be prospered in thy ways; and thou shalt only be oppressed and spoiled all the days, and there shall be no one to save thee. 30 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her; thou shalt build a house, and thou shalt not dwell therein; thou shalt plant a vineyard and shalt not gather the grapes thereof. 31 Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof; thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face and shall not be restored to thee; thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have no one to rescue them. 32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look and fail with longing for them all the day long; and there shall be no strength in thine hand. 33 The fruit of thy land and all thy labours shall a people which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt only be oppressed and crushed all the days. 34 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see. 35 The LORD shall smite thee in the knees and in the legs with an evil boil that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head. 36 The LORD shall bring thee and thy king which thou shalt set over thee unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, and there shalt thou serve other gods, even wood and stone. 37 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword among all nations where the LORD shall carry thee away. 38 Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field and shalt gather but little in, for the locust shall consume it. 39 Thou shalt plant vineyards and dress them, but shalt neither drink of the wine nor gather the grapes, for the worms shall eat them. 40 Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy borders, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive shall fall. 41 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity. 42 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume. 43 The stranger that is in the midst of thee shall get up above thee very high, and thou shalt come down very low. 44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him; he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail. 45 ¶ Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee and shall pursue thee and overtake thee until thou art destroyed because thou shalt not have attended unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee; 46 and they shall be in thee for a sign and for a wonder, and in thy seed for ever. 47 Because thou didst not serve the LORD thy God with joyfulness and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things; 48 therefore, thou shalt serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger and in thirst and in nakedness and in lack of all things; and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck until he has destroyed thee. 49 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from afar, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies, a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand, 50 a nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old nor show favour to the young; 51 and he shall eat the fruit of thy beast and the fruit of thy land until thou art destroyed, which also shall not leave thee either grain, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy cows or flocks of thy sheep until he has destroyed thee. 52 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates until thy high and fenced walls come down, in which thou dost trust, throughout all thy land; and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God has given thee. 53 And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God has given thee, in the siege and in the straitness with which thine enemies shall distress thee. 54 The man that is tender among you and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother and toward the wife of his bosom and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave, 55 so that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat, because he shall have nothing left him in the siege and in the straitness with which thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates. 56 The tender and delicate woman among you who would not venture to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom and toward her son and toward her daughter 57 and toward her young one that comes out from between her feet and toward her children which she shall bear, for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness with which thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates, 58 if thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book that thou may fear this glorious and fearful name; I AM thy God. 59 Then the LORD will augment thy plagues wonderfully, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues and of long continuance, and evil sicknesses and of long continuance. 60 Moreover, he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of, and they shall cleave unto thee. 61 Also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, the LORD will bring upon thee until thou art destroyed. 62 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude, because thou would not hear the voice of the LORD thy God. 63 And it shall come to pass that as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to cause you to perish and to destroy you; and ye shall be plucked from off the land into which thou dost enter in to inherit it. 64 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all the peoples from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone. 65 Neither shalt thou find rest among these Gentiles, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest; but there the LORD shall give thee a trembling heart and failing of eyes and sorrow of soul; 66 and thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night and shalt have no assurance of thy life. 67 In the morning thou shalt say, I wish it were evening, and in the evening thou shalt say, I wish it were morning! For the fear of thine heart with which thou shalt fear and for that which thine eyes shall see. 68 And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again in ships by the way of which I spoke unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again; and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for menslaves and womenslaves, and there shall be no one to buy you.

Psalms 127:3

3 Behold, sons are a heritage of the LORD, and the fruit of the womb is to be desired.

Deuteronomy 28:47-48

47 Because thou didst not serve the LORD thy God with joyfulness and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things; 48 therefore, thou shalt serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger and in thirst and in nakedness and in lack of all things; and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck until he has destroyed thee.

Psalms 61:5

5 ¶ For thou, O God, hast heard my vows; thou hast given an inheritance to those that fear thy name.
