Psalms 83:1-18

1 A Song or Psalm of Asaph. ¶ Do not keep silence, O God; do not hold thy peace, and do not be still, O God. 2 For, behold, thine enemies make a tumult, and those that hate thee have lifted up their head. 3 They have taken prudent counsel in secret against thy people and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4 They have said, Come and let us cut them off from being a people that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5 Therefore they have consulted together with one consent; they are confederate against thee: 6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; of Moab and the Hagarenes; 7 Gebal and Ammon and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; 8 Assur also is joined with them: they are an arm unto the sons of Lot. Selah. 9 ¶ Do unto them as unto the Midianites, as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison, 10 who perished at Endor; they became as dung for the earth. 11 Make them and their captains like Oreb and like Zeeb; all their princes as Zebah and as Zalmunna: 12 Who have said, Let us inherit for ourselves the habitations of God. 13 O my God, make them like a whirlwind, as the stubble before the wind. 14 As the fire burns a wood and as the flame sets the mountains on fire 15 so persecute them with thy tempest and make them afraid with thy whirlwind. 16 Fill their faces with shame that they may seek thy name, O LORD. 17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; let them be put to shame and perish 18 That they may know that thou, whose name alone is LORD, art the most high over all the earth.

Daniel 9:1-27

1 ¶ In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes, who was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans; 2 in the first year of his reign, I Daniel saw diligently in the books the number of the years, of which the LORD spoke unto Jeremiah the prophet, which would conclude the desolation of Jerusalem in seventy years. 3 And I turned my face unto the Lord God, seeking him in prayer and supplication, in fasting and sackcloth, and ashes: 4 ¶ and I prayed unto the LORD my God and made my confession and said, Now O Lord, thou great God who is worthy to be feared, who keeps the covenant and the mercy with those that love thee and keep thy commandments; 5 we have sinned, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly, and we have been rebels, and we have departed from thy commandments and from thy judgments. 6 We have not hearkened unto thy slaves the prophets, who spoke in thy name to our kings and to our princes, to our fathers, and to all the people of the land. 7 O Lord, the righteousness belongs unto thee, but unto us the confusion of face, as at this day; to the men of Judah and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near and that are far off through all the lands where thou hast driven them because of their rebellion with which they have rebelled against thee. 8 O Lord, to us belongs confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee. 9 Of the Lord our God is the ability to have mercy and to forgive, even though we have rebelled against him 10 and have not listened to the voice of the LORD our God to walk by his laws, which he set before us by the hand of his slaves the prophets. 11 And all Israel transposed thy law, departing by not hearing thy voice; by which the curse has fallen upon us and the oath that is written in the law of Moses, the slave of God, because we have sinned against him. 12 And he has confirmed his words, which he spoke over us and over our judges that governed us, by bringing upon us such a great evil: that such has never been done under the whole heaven as has been done upon Jerusalem. 13 As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us, and we never sought the face of the LORD our God, that we might be converted from our iniquities, and understand thy truth. 14 And the LORD hastened upon the chastisement and brought it upon us: for the LORD our God is just in all his works which he has done, for we did not listen to his voice. 15 And now, O Lord our God, who hast brought thy people forth out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand and hast won for thyself a very clear name as appears unto this day; we have sinned, we have done wickedly. 16 O Lord, according to all thy righteousness, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy mountain: because for our sins and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and all thy people is given in reproach to all that are about us. 17 Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy slave and his supplications and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is made desolate, by the Lord. 18 O my God, incline thine ear and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee confiding in our righteousnesses, but in thy many mercies. 19 O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name. 20 ¶ And whiles I was speaking and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel and presenting my supplication before the LORD my God for the holy mountain of my God; 21 I was even yet speaking in prayer, and that man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, flying swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening sacrifice. 22 And he caused me to understand and spoke with me and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to cause thee to understand the interpretation. 23 At the beginning of thy supplications, the word went forth, and I have come to teach it unto thee; for thou art a man greatly beloved: therefore understand the word, and understand the vision. 24 Seventy weeks are determined {Heb. Cut} upon thy people and upon thy holy city to finish the prevarication and to conclude the sin and to make reconciliation for iniquity and to bring in everlasting righteousness and seal the vision and the prophecy, and to anoint the Holy of Holies. 25 Know therefore and understand that from the going forth of the word to cause the people to return and to build Jerusalem unto the Anointed {Heb. Messiah} Prince, there shall be seven weeks, and sixty-two weeks, while the street shall be built again and the wall, even in troublous times. 26 And after the sixty-two weeks the Anointed One {Heb. Messiah} shall be killed and shall have nothing: (and the ruling people that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; whose end shall be as a flood, until at the end of the war it shall be cut off with desolation). 27 In one week (they are now seventy) he shall confirm the covenant by many: and at the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and because of the many abominations, desolation shall come, even until complete destruction shall be poured out upon the abominable people.

Daniel 8:1-27

1 ¶ In the third year of the reign of King Belshazzar a vision appeared unto me, Daniel, after that vision which had appeared unto me before. 2 And I saw in the vision; (and it came to pass, when I saw it, that I was at Shushan, which is the head of the kingdom in the province of Persia); so that I saw in that vision, being by the river of Ulai, 3 and I lifted up my eyes and saw, and, behold, a ram was standing before the river, which had two horns; and even though they were high, the one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last. 4 I saw that the ram smote with the horns to the west, to the north, and to the south and that no beast could stand before him, nor could anyone escape from his hand; but he did according to his will and made himself great. 5 And as I was considering, behold, a he goat came from the west upon the face of the whole earth and did not touch the earth: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes. 6 And he came to the ram that had the two horns, which I had seen standing before the river and ran against him in the fury of his power. 7 And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he rose up against him and smote him, and broke his two horns: because the ram did not have the strength to stand before him; therefore he cast him down to the ground and trod him under; and there was no one to deliver the ram out of his hand. 8 And the he goat made himself very great, and when he was at his greatest strength, that great horn was broken; and in its place came up another four marvellous ones toward the four winds of heaven. 9 And out of the first of them came forth a little horn, which grew much toward the south and toward the east and toward the desirable land. 10 And it magnified itself unto the host of heaven, and it cast down part of the host and of the stars to the ground and trod them under. 11 Even against the prince of the host did he magnify himself, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast to the earth. 12 And the host was given over by reason of the prevarication upon the daily sacrifice; and he cast the truth to the ground; and he did whatever he would and prospered. 13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto the one which spoke, How long shall the vision of the daily sacrifice last and the prevarication of desolation that places both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? 14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days of evening and morning; then shall the sanctuary be justified. 15 ¶ And it came to pass, as I, Daniel, was considering the vision and seeking to understand it, behold, there stood before me the likeness of a man. 16 And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of the Ulai, which called and said, Gabriel, teach this man the vision. 17 So he came near where I stood, and with his coming, I was afraid and fell upon my face; and he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time appointed by God the vision shall be fulfilled. 18 Now as he was speaking with me, I fell into a deep sleep on the ground upon my face; and he touched me and changed my state. 19 And he said, Behold, I will show thee that which is to come in the last end of the wrath; for at the time appointed this shall be fulfilled. 20 The ram which thou didst see having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia. 21 And the he goat is the king of Grecia, and the great horn that he had between his eyes is the first king. 22 Now that being broken, whereas four stood up in its place, means that four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his strength. 23 And at the end of their empire, when the prevaricators are come to the full, a king of arrogant countenance and expert in enigmas shall raise himself up. 24 And his power shall be strengthened, but not by his own power; and he shall destroy marvellously and shall prosper and do according to his will and shall destroy the mighty and the people of the saints. 25 And with his understanding he shall cause the deceit in his hand to prosper, and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace he shall destroy many; he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes, and without hand he shall be broken. 26 And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true; therefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days. 27 And I Daniel was broken and was sick certain days; and after I rose up, I did the king’s business; but I was astonished at the vision, and there was no one who could understand it.

1 Corinthians 12:1-31

1 ¶ Now regarding spiritual things, brothers, I would not have you ignore them. 2 Ye know that when ye were Gentiles, ye went, even as ye were led, unto the dumb idols. 3 Therefore I give you to understand, that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus anathema and that no one can call Jesus Lord but by the Holy Spirit. 4 Now there is dispersal of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there is dispersal of ministries, but the same Lord. 6 And there is dispersal of operations, but it is the same God who works all in each one. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one to profit with. 8 For to one is given by the Spirit a word of wisdom; to another, a word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; 9 to another, faith by the same Spirit; to another, gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 to another, the operation of miracles; to another, prophecy; to another, discerning of spirits; to another, different kinds of tongues; to another, the interpretation of tongues: 11 one and the same Spirit operates all these things, dispersing to each one his own gift as he wills. 12 ¶ For as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also the Christ. 13 For by one Spirit we are all baptized into one body, whether we are Jews or Greeks, whether we are slaves or free, and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 14 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body, is it therefore not of the body? 16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body, is it therefore not of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole were hearing, where would the smelling be? 18 But now God has set the members each one of them in the body, as it has pleased him. 19 And if they were all one member, where would the body be? 20 But now they are indeed many members, yet but one body. 21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee; nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. 22 For those members of the body, which seem to be weaker, are much more necessary; 23 and those members of the body which we think to be more vile, these we dress with more abundant honour; and those in us who are more indecent have more honesty. 24 For those in us who are more honest need nothing, but God has ordered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that one which lacked, 25 that there should be no contradiction in the body, but that the members should have the same care one for another. 26 And if one member suffers, all the members suffer together; or if one member is honoured, all the members rejoice together. 27 ¶ Now ye are the body of Christ and members in particular. 28 And God did set certain ones in the congregation {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones}: first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that faculties, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? do all have faculties? 30 Do all have gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? 31 But earnestly pursue the best gifts, and yet I show unto you a more excellent way.

Daniel 2:43

43 Concerning that which thou didst see, the iron mixed with baked clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men, but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron does not mix with clay.

Daniel 12:1-13

1 ¶ And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince who is for the sons of thy people, and it shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there were people until now, but in that time thy people shall escape, all those that are found written in the book. 2 And many of those that sleep in the dust of the earth shall be awakened, some for eternal life, and some for shame and everlasting confusion. 3 And those that understand shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and those that teach righteousness to the multitude as the stars in perpetual eternity. 4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end: many shall pass by, and knowledge shall be multiplied. 5 ¶ Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, another two who stood, one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river. 6 And one said to the Man clothed in linens, who was upon the waters of the river, When shall be the end of these wonders? 7 And I heard the Man clothed in linens, who was upon the waters of the river, who raised his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swore by the living one in the ages that it shall be for a time, times, and a half; and when the scattering of the power of the holy people shall be finished, all these things shall be fulfilled. 8 And I heard, but I did not understand; then I said, O my Lord, what is the fulfillment of these things? 9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel, for these words are closed up and sealed until the time of the fulfillment. 10 Many shall be purified and made white and purged, but the wicked shall get worse; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand. 11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away until the abomination of desolation, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. 12 Blessed is he that waits and comes unto one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days. 13 And thou shall go to the end and shalt rest, and thou shalt raise up in thy lot {or in thine inheritance} at the end of the days.

Daniel 8:13-17

13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto the one which spoke, How long shall the vision of the daily sacrifice last and the prevarication of desolation that places both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? 14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days of evening and morning; then shall the sanctuary be justified. 15 ¶ And it came to pass, as I, Daniel, was considering the vision and seeking to understand it, behold, there stood before me the likeness of a man. 16 And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of the Ulai, which called and said, Gabriel, teach this man the vision. 17 So he came near where I stood, and with his coming, I was afraid and fell upon my face; and he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for at the time appointed by God the vision shall be fulfilled.

Daniel 10:13-21

13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days: and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia. 14 Now I am come to make thee know what shall befall thy people in the latter days, for there shall still be vision for several days. 15 And as he was speaking such words unto me, I looked toward the ground and became dumb. 16 And, behold, one like the similitude of the son of man touched my lips; then I opened my mouth and spoke and said unto him that stood before me, O my Lord, by the vision my sorrows are turned upon me, and I have retained no strength. 17 For how can the slave of my Lord talk with my Lord? for as for me, for in that instant I had no more strength in me, neither was there any breath left in me. 18 Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance of a man, and he comforted me, 19 and said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be of good cheer, and be well. And as he spoke unto me, I was strengthened and said, Let my Lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me. 20 Then said he, Knowest thou why I have come unto thee? Because now I must return to fight with the prince of the Persians; and when I am gone forth, next the prince of Grecia shall come. 21 But I will interpret unto thee that which is written in the scripture of truth: and there is no one that holds with me in these things, but Michael your prince.

James 3:16-18

16 For where there is envy and contention, there is confusion and every perverse work. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, modest, benevolent, full of mercy and of good fruits, not judgmental, unfeigned. 18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace unto those that make peace.

Genesis 6:1-22

1 ¶ And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born unto them, 2 that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were fair, and they took for themselves wives of all whom they chose. 3 ¶ And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for certainly he is flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years. 4 ¶ There were giants in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore sons to them, the same became mighty men who were of old, men of renown. 5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 ¶ And the LORD repented of having made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast and the animals and the fowls of the air; for I repent of having made them. 8 ¶ But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. 9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11 ¶ The earth corrupted itself before God, and the earth filled itself with violence. 12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its way upon the earth. 13 ¶ And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make thee an ark of cedar trees; rooms shalt thou make in the ark and shalt reconcile it within and without covering it over with pitch. {Heb. ransom or atonement} 15 And this is the fashion of which thou shalt make it: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it. 17 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, in which is the spirit of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die. 18 But with thee I will establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou and thy sons and thy wife and thy sons’ wives with thee. 19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. 20 Of fowls after their kind and of beasts after their kind, of every animal of the earth after its kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive. 21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee and for them. 22 ¶ Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.

Matthew 24:37

37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Hebrews 13:2

2 Do not forget to show hospitality; for thereby some, having entertained angels, were kept.

Ephesians 6:12

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the lords of this age, rulers of this darkness, against spiritual wickedness in the heavens.

Genesis 6:1-4

1 ¶ And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born unto them, 2 that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were fair, and they took for themselves wives of all whom they chose. 3 ¶ And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for certainly he is flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years. 4 ¶ There were giants in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore sons to them, the same became mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

Daniel 4:17

17 By sentence of the watchmen is the matter resolved, and the case by the word of the holy ones to the intent that the living may know that the most High takes rule over the kingdom of men and gives it to whoever he will and sets up over it the man who is the lowest.

Daniel 4:23

23 And regarding that which the king saw, one who was a watchman and holy who came down from heaven and said, Hew the tree down and destroy it; yet leave the stump of its roots in the earth, and with a band of iron and of brass let it remain bound in the green grass of the field, and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts of the field until seven times pass over him:

Daniel 4:13

13 I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, one who was a watchman and holy descended from heaven;
