Psalms 91:1-16

1 Who so dwelleth in the secrete of the most High, shall abide in the shadowe of the Almightie. 2 I will say vnto the Lord, O mine hope, and my fortresse: he is my God, in him will I trust. 3 Surely he will deliuer thee from the snare of the hunter, and from the noysome pestilence. 4 Hee will couer thee vnder his winges, and thou shalt be sure vnder his feathers: his trueth shall be thy shielde and buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraide of the feare of the night, nor of the arrowe that flyeth by day: 6 Nor of the pestilence that walketh in the darkenesse: nor of the plague that destroyeth at noone day. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and tenne thousand at thy right hand, but it shall not come neere thee. 8 Doubtlesse with thine eyes shalt thou beholde and see the reward of the wicked. 9 For thou hast said, The Lord is mine hope: thou hast set the most High for thy refuge. 10 There shall none euill come vnto thee, neither shall any plague come neere thy tabernacle. 11 For hee shall giue his Angels charge ouer thee to keepe thee in all thy wayes. 12 They shall beare thee in their handes, that thou hurt not thy foote against a stone. 13 Thou shalt walke vpon the lyon and aspe: the yong lyon and the dragon shalt thou treade vnder feete. 14 Because he hath loued me, therefore will I deliuer him: I will exalt him because hee hath knowen my Name. 15 He shall call vpon me, and I wil heare him: I will be with him in trouble: I will deliuer him, and glorifie him. 16 With long life wil I satisfie him, and shew him my saluation.

Proverbs 16:18

18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an high minde before the fall.

Proverbs 29:1-27

1 A man that hardeneth his necke when he is rebuked, shall suddenly be destroyed and can not be cured. 2 When the righteous are in authoritie, the people reioyce: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people sigh. 3 A man that loueth wisdome, reioyceth his father: but he that feedeth harlots, wasteth his substance. 4 A King by iudgement mainteineth ye countrey: but a man receiuing giftes, destroyeth it. 5 A man that flattereth his neighbour, spreadeth a net for his steps. 6 In the transgression of an euill man is his snare: but the righteous doeth sing and reioyce. 7 The righteous knoweth the cause of the poore: but the wicked regardeth not knowledge. 8 Scornefull men bring a citie into a snare: but wise men turne away wrath. 9 If a wise man contend with a foolish man, whether he be angry or laugh, there is no rest. 10 Bloodie men hate him that is vpright: but the iust haue care of his soule. 11 A foole powreth out all his minde: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterward. 12 Of a prince that hearkeneth to lyes, all his seruants are wicked. 13 The poore and the vsurer meete together, and the Lord lighteneth both their eyes. 14 A King that iudgeth the poore in trueth, his throne shalbe established for euer. 15 The rodde and correction giue wisdome: but a childe set a libertie, maketh his mother ashamed. 16 When the wicked are increased, transgression increaseth: but ye righteous shall see their fall. 17 Correct thy sonne and he will giue thee rest, and will giue pleasures to thy soule. 18 Where there is no vision, the people decay: but he that keepeth the Lawe, is blessed. 19 A seruant will not be chastised with words: though he vnderstand, yet he will not answere. 20 Seest thou a man hastie in his matters? there is more hope of a foole, then of him. 21 He that delicately bringeth vp his seruant from youth, at length he will be euen as his sone. 22 An angrie man stirreth vp strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression. 23 The pride of a man shall bring him lowe: but the humble in spirit shall enioy glory. 24 He that is partner with a thiefe, hateth his owne soule: he heareth cursing, and declareth it not. 25 The feare of man bringeth a snare: but he that trusteth in the Lord, shalbe exalted. 26 Many doe seeke the face of the ruler: but euery mans iudgement commeth from the Lord. 27 A wicked man is abomination to the iust, and he that is vpright in his way, is abomination to the wicked.

Luke 4:1-13

1 And Iesus full of the holy Ghost returned from Iordan, and was led by that Spirit into the wildernes, 2 And was there fourtie dayes tempted of the deuil, and in those dayes he did eate nothing: but when they were ended, he afterward was hungry. 3 Then the deuil saide vnto him, If thou be the Sonne of God, commaund this stone that it be made bread. 4 But Iesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not liue by bread only, but by euery word of God. 5 Then the deuill tooke him vp into an high mountaine, and shewed him all the kingdomes of the world, in the twinkeling of an eye. 6 And the deuill saide vnto him, All this power will I giue thee, and the glory of those kingdomes: for that is deliuered to mee: and to whomsoeuer I will, I giue it. 7 If thou therefore wilt worship mee, they shalbe all thine. 8 But Iesus answered him, and saide, Hence from mee, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him alone thou shalt serue. 9 Then hee brought him to Hierusalem, and set him on a pinacle of the Temple, and said vnto him, If thou be the Sonne of God, cast thy selfe downe from hence, 10 For it is written, That hee will giue his Angels charge ouer thee to keepe thee: 11 And with their handes they shall lift thee vp, least at any time thou shouldest dash thy foote against a stone. 12 And Iesus answered, and said vnto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 13 And when the deuil had ended all the tentation, he departed from him for a litle season.

Mark 4:24

24 And he said vnto them, Take heede what ye heare. With what measure ye mete, it shall be measured vnto you: and vnto you that heare, shall more be giuen.

John 8:32

32 And shall know the trueth, and the trueth shall make you free.

Colossians 1:13

13 Who hath deliuered vs from the power of darkenesse, and hath translated vs into the kingdome of his deare Sonne,

Romans 8:13

13 For if ye liue after the flesh, ye shall die: but if yee mortifie the deedes of the body by the Spirit, ye shall liue.

Romans 8:37

37 Neuerthelesse, in all these thinges we are more then coquerours through him that loued vs.

Romans 8:1-39

1 Now then there is no condemnation to them that are in Christ Iesus, which walke not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 2 For the Lawe of the Spirite of life, which is in Christ Iesus, hath freed mee from the lawe of sinne and of death. 3 For (that that was impossible to ye Lawe, in as much as it was weake, because of ye flesh) God sending his owne Sonne, in ye similitude of sinful flesh, and for sinne, condened sinne in the flesh, 4 That that righteousnes of the Law might be fulfilled in vs, which walke not after ye flesh, but after the Spirit. 5 For they that are after the flesh, sauour the things of the flesh: but they that are after the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6 For the wisedome of the flesh is death: but the wisedome of the Spirit is life and peace, 7 Because the wisedome of the flesh is enimitie against God: for it is not subiect to the Lawe of God, neither in deede can be. 8 So then they that are in the flesh, can not please God. 9 Now ye are not in the flesh, but in ye Spirit, because ye spirit of God dwelleth in you: but if any man hath not ye Spirit of Christ, ye same is not his. 10 And if Christ bee in you, the body is dead, because of sinne: but the Spirite is life for righteousnesse sake. 11 But if the Spirit of him that raised vp Iesus from the dead, dwell in you, he that raised vp Christ from the dead, shall also quicken your mortall bodies, by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. 12 Therefore brethren, wee are detters not to the flesh, to liue after the flesh: 13 For if ye liue after the flesh, ye shall die: but if yee mortifie the deedes of the body by the Spirit, ye shall liue. 14 For as many as are ledde by the Spirit of God, they are the sonnes of God. 15 For ye haue not receiued the Spirit of bodage, to feare againe: but ye haue receiued the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry Abba, Father. 16 The same Spirit beareth witnesse with our spirit, that we are the children of God. 17 If we be children, we are also heires, euen the heires of God, and heires annexed with Christ: if so be that we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified with him. 18 For I count that the afflictions of this present time are not worthy of the glory, which shalbe shewed vnto vs. 19 For the feruent desire of the creature waiteth when the sonnes of God shalbe reueiled, 20 Because the creature is subiect to vanitie, not of it owne will, but by reason of him, which hath subdued it vnder hope, 21 Because the creature also shall be deliuered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious libertie of the sonnes of God. 22 For we knowe that euery creature groneth with vs also, and trauaileth in paine together vnto this present. 23 And not onely the creature, but we also which haue the first fruites of the Spirit, euen we doe sigh in our selues, waiting for the adoption, euen the redemption of our body. 24 For we are saued by hope: but hope that is seene, is not hope: for how can a man hope for that which he seeth? 25 But if we hope for that we see not, we doe with patience abide for it. 26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we knowe not what to pray as wee ought: but the Spirit it selfe maketh request for vs with sighs, which cannot be expressed. 27 But he that searcheth the heartes, knoweth what is the meaning of the Spirit: for he maketh request for ye Saints, according to the wil of God. 28 Also we knowe that all thinges worke together for the best vnto them that loue God, euen to them that are called of his purpose. 29 For those which hee knewe before, he also predestinate to bee made like to the image of his Sonne, that hee might be the first borne among many brethren. 30 Moreouer whom he predestinate, them also he called, and whom he called, them also he iustified, and whom he iustified, them he also glorified. 31 What shall we then say to these thinges? If God be on our side, who can be against vs? 32 Who spared not his owne Sonne, but gaue him for vs all to death, how shall he not with him giue vs all things also? 33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of Gods chosen? it is God that iustifieth, 34 Who shall condemne? it is Christ which is dead, yea, or rather, which is risen againe, who is also at the right hand of God, and maketh request also for vs. 35 Who shall separate vs from the loue of Christ? shall tribulation or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakednesse, or perill, or sworde? 36 As it is written, For thy sake are we killed all day long: we are counted as sheepe for the slaughter. 37 Neuerthelesse, in all these thinges we are more then coquerours through him that loued vs. 38 For I am perswaded that neither death, nor life, nor Angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature shalbe able to separate vs from the loue of God, which is in Christ Iesus our Lord.

Hebrews 13:5

5 Let your conuersation be without couetousnesse, and be content with those things that ye haue, for he hath said,

1 John 3:9

9 Whosoeuer is borne of God, sinneth not: for his seede remaineth in him, neither can hee sinne, because he is borne of God.

Psalms 27:1-14

1 A Psalme of David. The Lord is my light and my saluation, whom shall I feare? the Lord is the strength of my life, of whome shall I be afraide? 2 When the wicked, euen mine enemies and my foes came vpon mee to eate vp my flesh; they stumbled and fell. 3 Though an hoste pitched against me, mine heart should not be afraide: though warre be raised against me, I will trust in this. 4 One thing haue I desired of the Lord, that I will require, euen that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the dayes of my life, to beholde the beautie of the Lord, and to visite his Temple. 5 For in the time of trouble hee shall hide mee in his Tabernacle: in the secrete place of his pauillion shall he hide me, and set me vp vpon a rocke. 6 And nowe shall hee lift vp mine head aboue mine enemies rounde about mee: therefore wil I offer in his Tabernacle sacrifices of ioy: I wil sing and praise the Lord. 7 Hearken vnto my voyce, O Lord, when I crie: haue mercie also vpon mee and heare mee. 8 When thou saidest, Seeke ye my face, mine heart answered vnto thee, O Lord, I will seeke thy face. 9 Hide not therefore thy face from mee, nor cast thy seruat away in displeasure: thou hast bene my succour: leaue me not, neither forsake mee, O God of my saluation. 10 Though my father and my mother shoulde forsake me, yet the Lord will gather me vp. 11 Teache mee thy way, O Lord, and leade me in a right path, because of mine enemies. 12 Giue me not vnto the lust of mine aduersaries: for there are false witnesses risen vp against me, and such as speake cruelly. 13 I should haue fainted, except I had beleeued to see the goodnes of the Lord in the land of the liuing. 14 Hope in the Lord: be strong, and he shall comfort thine heart, and trust in the Lord.

2 Corinthians 10:4

4 (For the weapons of our warrefare are not carnall, but mightie through God, to cast downe holdes)

2 Timothy 1:7

7 For God hath not giuen to vs the Spirite of feare, but of power, and of loue, and of a sound minde.

James 4:7

7 Submit your selues to God: resist the deuill, and he will flee from you.

1 John 4:1-21

1 Dearely beloued, beleeue not euery spirit, but trie the spirits whether they are of God: for many false prophets are gone out into this worlde. 2 Hereby shall ye know the Spirit of God, Euery spirit which confesseth that Iesus Christ is come in the flesh, is of God. 3 And euery spirit that confesseth not that Iesus Christ is come in the flesh, is not of God: but this is the spirit of Antichrist, of whome ye haue heard, how that he should come, and nowe already he is in this world. 4 Litle children, ye are of God, and haue ouercome them: for greater is he that is in you, then he that is in this world. 5 They are of this worlde, therefore speake they of this world, and this world heareth them. 6 We are of God, he that knoweth God, heareth vs: he that is not of God, heareth vs not. Heereby knowe wee the spirit of trueth, and the spirit of errour. 7 Beloued, let vs loue one another: for loue commeth of God, and euery one that loueth, is borne of God, and knoweth God. 8 Hee that loueth not, knoweth not God: for God is loue. 9 Herein was that loue of God made manifest amongst vs, because God sent that his onely begotten sonne into this world, that we might liue through him. 10 Herein is that loue, not that we loued God, but that he loued vs, and sent his Sonne to be a reconciliation for our sinnes. 11 Beloued, if God so loued vs, we ought also to loue one another. 12 No man hath seene God at any time. If we loue one another, God dwelleth in vs, and his loue is perfect in vs. 13 Hereby know we, that we dwell in him, and he in vs: because he hath giuen vs of his Spirit. 14 And we haue seene, and doe testifie, that the Father sent that Sonne to be ye Sauiour of the world. 15 Whosoeuer confesseth that Iesus is the Sone of God, in him dwelleth God, and he in God. 16 And we haue knowen, and beleeued ye loue that God hath in vs. God is loue, and he that dwelleth in loue, dwelleth in God, and God in him. 17 Herein is that loue perfect in vs, that we should haue boldnes in the day of iudgement: for as he is, euen so are we in this world. 18 There is no feare in loue, but perfect loue casteth out feare: for feare hath painefulnesse: and he that feareth, is not perfect in loue. 19 We loue him, because he loued vs first. 20 If any man say, I loue God, and hate his brother, he is a liar: for how can he that loueth not his brother whom he hath seene, loue God whom he hath not seene? 21 And this commandement haue we of him, that he that loueth God, should loue his brother also.

Isaiah 26:3

3 By an assured purpose wilt thou preserue perfite peace, because they trusted in thee.

Ephesians 6:12

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, and against the worldly gouernours, the princes of the darkenesse of this worlde, against spirituall wickednesses, which are in ye hie places.

Philippians 4:6-8

6 Be nothing carefull, but in all thinges let your requestes be shewed vnto God in praier, and supplication with giuing of thankes. 7 And the peace of God which passeth all vnderstanding, shall preserue your heartes and mindes in Christ Iesus. 8 Furthermore, brethre, whatsoeuer things are true, whatsoeuer things are honest, whatsoeuer thinges are iust, whatsoeuer thinges are pure, whatsoeuer thinges are worthie loue, whatsoeuer things are of good report, if there be any vertue, or if there be any praise, thinke on these things,

2 Corinthians 10:5

5 Casting downe the imaginations, and euery high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captiuitie euery thought to the obedience of Christ,

2 Corinthians 10:3-5

3 Neuerthelesse, though wee walke in the flesh, yet we doe not warre after the flesh. 4 (For the weapons of our warrefare are not carnall, but mightie through God, to cast downe holdes) 5 Casting downe the imaginations, and euery high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captiuitie euery thought to the obedience of Christ,

Romans 12:2

2 And fashion not your selues like vnto this worlde, but bee yee changed by the renewing of your minde, that ye may prooue what that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God is.
