2 Chronicles 7:1-10

1 And when Salomon had made an ende of praying, fire came downe from heauen, and consumed the burnt offring and the sacrifices: and the glory of the Lord filled the house, 2 So that the Priestes could not euter into the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord had filled the Lordes house. 3 And when all the children of Israel saw the fire, and the glory of the Lord come downe vpon the house, they bowed themselues with their faces to the earth vpon the pauement, and worshipped and praysed the Lord, saying, For he is good, because his mercy lasteth for euer. 4 Then the King and all the people offred sacrifices before the Lord. 5 And King Salomon offered a sacrifice of two and twentie thousand bullockes, and an hundreth and twentie thousand sheepe. so the King and all the people dedicated the house of God. 6 And the Priests waited on their offices, and the Leuites with the instruments of musicke of the Lord, which King Dauid had made to praise the Lord, Because his mercy lasteth for euer: whe Dauid praysed God by them, the Priestes also blewe trumpets ouer against them: and all they of Israel stoode by. 7 Moreouer Salomon halowed the middle of the court that was before the house of the Lord: for there hee had prepared burnt offerings, and the fatte of the peace offerings, because the brasen altar which Salomon had made, was not able to receiue the burnt offering, and the meate offring, and the fat. 8 And Salomon made a feast at that time of seuen dayes, and all Israel with him, a very great Congregation, from the entring in of Hamath, vnto the riuer of Egypt. 9 And in the eight day they made a solemne assemblie: for they had made the dedication of the altar seuen daies, and the feast seuen dayes. 10 And the three and twentieth day of the seuenth moneth, he sent the people away into their tentes, ioyous and with glad heart, because of the goodnesse that the Lord had done for Dauid and for Salomon, and for Israel his people.

Psalms 149:5

5 Let ye Saints be ioyfull with glorie: let them sing loud vpon their beddes.

Matthew 22:1-46

1 Then Iesus answered, and spake vnto them againe in parables, saying, 2 The kingdome of heauen is like vnto a certaine King which maried his sonne, 3 And sent foorth his seruants, to call them that were bidde to the wedding, but they woulde not come. 4 Againe hee sent foorth other seruants, saying. Tell them which are bidden, Beholde, I haue prepared my dinner: mine oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all thinges are readie: come vnto the mariage. 5 But they made light of it, and went their wayes, one to his farme, and another about his marchandise. 6 And the remnant tooke his seruants, and intreated them sharpely, and slewe them. 7 But when the King heard it, he was wroth, and sent foorth his warriers, and destroyed those murtherers, and burnt vp their citie. 8 Then saide hee to his seruants, Truely the wedding is prepared: but they which were bidden, were not worthy. 9 Go ye therefore out into the high wayes, and as many as ye finde, bid them to the mariage. 10 So those seruantes went out into the hie wayes, and gathered together all that euer they found, both good and bad: so the wedding was furnished with ghestes. 11 Then the King came in, to see the ghestes, and sawe there a man which had not on a wedding garment. 12 And he sayd vnto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither, and hast not on a wedding garment? And he was speachlesse. 13 Then sayd the King to the seruants, Binde him hand and foote: take him away, and cast him into vtter darkenes: there shalbe weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14 For many are called, but fewe chosen. 15 Then went the Pharises and tooke counsell how they might tangle him in talke. 16 And they sent vnto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we knowe that thou art true, and teachest the way of God truely, neither carest for any man: for thou considerest not the person of men. 17 Tell vs therefore, how thinkest thou? Is it lawfull to giue tribute vnto Cesar, or not? 18 But Iesus perceiued their wickednes, and sayd, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? 19 Shewe me the tribute money. And they brought him a peny. 20 And he sayde vnto them, Whose is this image and superscription? 21 They sayd vnto him, Cesars. Then sayd he vnto them, Giue therefore to Cesar, the things which are Cesars, and giue vnto God, those things which are Gods. 22 And when they heard it, they marueiled, and left him, and went their way. 23 The same day the Sadduces came to him (which say that there is no resurrection) and asked him, 24 Saying, Master, Moses sayd, If a man die, hauing no children, his brother shall marie his wife by the right of alliance, and raise vp seede vnto his brother. 25 Nowe there were with vs seuen brethren, and the first maried a wife, and deceased: and hauing none yssue, left his wife vnto his brother. 26 Likewise also the second, and the third, vnto the seuenth. 27 And last of all the woman died also. 28 Therefore in the resurrection, whose wife shall she be of the seuen? for all had her. 29 Then Iesus answered, and sayd vnto them, Ye are deceiued, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God. 30 For in the resurrection they neither marie wiues, nor wiues are bestowed in mariage, but are as the Angels of God in heauen. 31 And concerning the resurrection of the dead, haue ye not read what is spoken vuto you of God, saying, 32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Iacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the liuing. 33 And when the multitude heard it, they were astonied at his doctrine. 34 But when the Pharises had heard, that he had put the Sadduces to silence, they assembled together. 35 And one of them, which was an expounder of the Lawe, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, 36 Master, which is ye great commandement in the Lawe? 37 Iesus sayd to him, Thou shalt loue the Lord thy God with all thine heart, with all thy soule, and with all thy minde. 38 This is the first and the great commandement. 39 And the second is like vnto this, Thou shalt loue thy neighbour as thy selfe. 40 On these two commandements hangeth the whole Lawe, and the Prophets. 41 While the Pharises were gathered together, Iesus asked them, 42 Saying, What thinke ye of Christ? whose sonne is he? They sayd vnto him, Dauids. 43 He sayd vnto them, How then doeth Dauid in spirit call him Lord, saying, 44 The Lord sayd to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footestoole? 45 If then Dauid call him Lord, howe is he his sonne? 46 And none could answere him a worde, neither durst any from that day foorth aske him any moe questions.

Luke 1:45

45 And blessed is shee that beleeued: for those things shall be perfourmed, which were tolde her from the Lord.

John 15:11

11 These things haue I spoken vnto you, that my ioy might remaine in you, and that your ioy might be full.

Romans 14:1-23

1 Him that is weake in the faith, receiue vnto you, but not for controuersies of disputations. 2 One beleeueth that he may eate of all things: and another, which is weake, eateth herbes. 3 Let not him that eateth, despise him that eateth not: and let not him which eateth not, condemne him that eateth: for God hath receiued him. 4 Who art thou that condemnest another mans seruant? hee standeth or falleth to his owne master: yea, he shalbe established: for God is able to make him stand. 5 This man esteemeth one day aboue another day, and another man counteth euery day alike: let euery man be fully perswaded in his minde. 6 He that obserueth the day, obserueth it to the Lord: and he that obserueth not the day, obserueth it not to the Lord. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord: for he giueth God thankes: and he that eateth not, eateth not to the Lord, and giueth God thankes. 7 For none of vs liueth to himselfe, neither doeth any die to himselfe. 8 For whether wee liue, we liue vnto the Lord: or whether we die, we die vnto the Lord: whether we liue therefore, or die, we are the Lords. 9 For Christ therefore died and rose againe, and reuiued, that he might be Lord both of the dead and the quicke. 10 But why doest thou condemne thy brother? or why doest thou despise thy brother? for we shall all appeare before the iudgement seate of Christ. 11 For it is written, I liue, sayth the Lord, and euery knee shall bowe to me, and all tongues shall confesse vnto God. 12 So then euery one of vs shall giue accounts of himselfe to God. 13 Let vs not therefore iudge one another any more: but vse your iudgement rather in this, that no man put an occasion to fall, or a stumbling blocke before his brother. 14 I know, and am perswaded through the Lord Iesus, that there is nothing vncleane of it selfe: but vnto him that iudgeth any thing to be vncleane, to him it is vncleane. 15 But if thy brother be grieued for the meate, nowe walkest thou not charitably: destroy not him with thy meate, for whome Christ dyed. 16 Cause not your commoditie to be euill spoken of. 17 For the kingdome of God, is not meate nor drinke, but righteousnes, and peace, and ioye in the holy Ghost. 18 For whosoeuer in these things serueth Christ, is acceptable vnto God, and is approoued of men. 19 Let vs then follow those things which concerne peace, and wherewith one may edifie another. 20 Destroy not the worke of God for meates sake: all things in deede are pure: but it is euill for the man which eateth with offence. 21 It is good neither to eate flesh, nor to drinke wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or made weake. 22 Hast thou faith? haue it with thy selfe before God: blessed is hee that condemneth not himselfe in that thing which he aloweth. 23 For he that doubteth, is condemned if he eate, because he eateth not of faith: and whatsoeuer is not of faith, is sinne.

Romans 16:1-27

1 I Commende vnto you Phebe our sister, which is a seruaunt of the Church of Cenchrea: 2 That ye receiue her in the Lord, as it becommeth Saintes, and that ye assist her in whatsoeuer businesse she needeth of your ayde: for she hath giuen hospitalitie vnto many, and to me also. 3 Greete Priscilla, and Aquila my fellowe helpers in Christ Iesus, 4 (Which haue for my life laide downe their owne necke. Vnto whom not I onely giue thankes, but also all the Churches of the Gentiles.) 5 Likewise greete the Church that is in their house. Salute my beloued Epenetus, which is the first fruites of Achaia in Christ. 6 Greete Marie which bestowed much labour on vs. 7 Salute Andronicus and Iunia my cousins and fellowe prisoners, which are notable among the Apostles, and were in Christ before me. 8 Greete Amplias my beloued in the Lord. 9 Salute Vrbanus our fellow helper in Christ, and Stachys my beloued. 10 Salute Apelles approoued in Christ. Salute them which are of Aristobulus friendes. 11 Salute Herodion my kinsman. Greete them which are of the friendes of Narcissus which are in the Lord. 12 Salute Tryphena and Tryphosa, which women labour in the Lord. Salute the beloued Persis, which woman hath laboured much in the Lord. 13 Salute Rufus chosen in the Lord, and his mother and mine. 14 Greete Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermas, Patrobas, Mercurius, and the brethren which are with them. 15 Salute Philologus and Iulias, Nereas, and his sister, and Olympas, and all the Saintes which are with them. 16 Salute one another with an holy kisse. The Churches of Christ salute you. 17 Now I beseech you brethren, marke them diligently which cause diuision and offences, contrary to the doctrine which ye haue learned, and auoide them. 18 For they that are such, serue not the Lord Iesus Christ, but their owne bellies, and with faire speach and flattering deceiue the heartes of the simple. 19 For your obedience is come abroade among all: I am glad therefore of you: but yet I woulde haue you wise vnto that which is good, and simple concerning euill. 20 The God of peace shall treade Satan vnder your feete shortly. The grace of our Lord Iesus Christ be with you. 21 Timotheus my helper, and Lucius, and Iason, and Sosipater my kinsemen, salute you. 22 I Tertius, which wrote out this Epistle, salute you in the Lord. 23 Gains mine hoste, and of the whole Church saluteth you. Erastus the steward of the citie saluteth you, and Quartus a brother. 24 The grace of our Lord Iesus Christ be with you all. Amen. 25 To him nowe that is of power to establish you according to my Gospel, and preaching of Iesus Christ, by the reuelation of the mysterie, which was kept secrete since the worlde began: 26 (But nowe is opened, and published among all nations by the Scriptures of the Prophetes, at the commandement of the euerlasting God for the obedience of faith) 27 To God, I say, only wise, be praise through Iesus Christ for euer. Amen.

Matthew 2:11

11 And went into the house, and founde the babe with Mary his mother, and fell downe, and worshipped him, and opened their treasures, and presented vnto him giftes, euen golde, and frankincense, and myrrhe.

Luke 15:3-10

3 Then spake hee this parable to them, saying, 4 What man of you hauing an hundreth sheepe, if hee lose one of them, doeth not leaue ninetie and nine in the wildernesse, and goe after that which is lost, vntill he finde it? 5 And when he hath found it, he laieth it on his shoulders with ioye. 6 And when he commeth home, he calleth together his friendes and neighbours, saying vnto them, Reioyce with mee: for I haue founde my sheepe which was lost. 7 I say vnto you, that likewise ioy shall be in heauen for one sinner that conuerteth, more then for ninetie and nine iust men, which neede none amendment of life. 8 Either what woman hauing ten groates, if she lose one groate, doth not light a candle, and sweepe the house, and seeke diligently till shee finde it? 9 And when shee hath found it, shee calleth her friendes, and neighbours, saying, Reioyce with me: for I haue found the groate which I had lost. 10 Likewise I say vnto you, there is ioy in the presence of the Angels of God, for one sinner that conuerteth.

Romans 14:5-6

5 This man esteemeth one day aboue another day, and another man counteth euery day alike: let euery man be fully perswaded in his minde. 6 He that obserueth the day, obserueth it to the Lord: and he that obserueth not the day, obserueth it not to the Lord. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord: for he giueth God thankes: and he that eateth not, eateth not to the Lord, and giueth God thankes.

Ecclesiastes 3:13

13 And also that euery man eateth and drinketh, and seeth the commoditie of all his labour. this is the gift of God.

1 Corinthians 10:31

31 Whether therefore ye eate, or drinke, or whatsoeuer ye doe, doe all to the glory of God.

Psalms 150:1-6

1 Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye God in his Sanctuarie: prayse ye him in the firmament of his power. 2 Prayse ye him in his mightie Actes: prayse ye him according to his excellent greatnesse. 3 Prayse ye him in the sounde of the trumpet: prayse yee him vpon the viole and the harpe. 4 Prayse ye him with timbrell and flute: praise ye him with virginales and organs. 5 Prayse ye him with sounding cymbales: prayse ye him with high sounding cymbales. 6 Let euery thing that hath breath prayse the Lord. Prayse ye the Lord.
