3 it seemed good also to me, having traced out all things accurately from the first, to write in order to you, most excellent Theophilus,
Bible verses about "orderliness" | LITV
16 For all things were created in Him, the things in the heavens, and the things on the earth, the visible and the invisible; whether thrones, or lordships, or rulers, or authorities, all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and all things consist in Him.
7 Remember your leaders who spoke the Word of God to you, considering the issue of their conduct, imitate their faith:
1 To all there is an appointed time, even a time for every purpose under the heavens: 2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pull up what is planted; 3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to tear down, and a time to build up; 4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5 a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 a time to seek, and a time to give up as lost; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; 7 a time to tear, and a time to sew together; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8 a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. 9 What advantage has he who works in that in which he labors? 10 I have seen the task which God has given to the sons of men, to be humbled by it. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, He has set eternity in their heart, without which man cannot find out the work that God makes from the beginning and to the end. 12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice to do good in his life. 13 And also every man that eats and drinks, and sees good in his labor, it is the gift of God. 14 I know that whatever God does, it shall be forever; nothing is to be added to it, and nothing is to diminish from it. And God does it so that they fear before Him. 15 That which has been, it already is; and that which is to be, it already has been. And God seeks what has gone by. 16 And again I saw under the sun the place of justice: wickedness is there; and the place of righteousness, wickedness is there. 17 I said in my heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked; for there is a time there for every matter and for every work. 18 I said in my heart concerning the issue of the sons of men, that God may test them and see that they by themselves are beasts. 19 For that which happens to the sons of men, and that which happens to beasts, even one event is to them. As this one dies, so that one dies; yea, one breath is to all; so that there is to the man no advantage over the beast; for all is vanity. 20 All go to one place; all are of the dust, and all return to the dust. 21 Who knows the spirit of the sons of man, whether it goes upward; and the spirit of the beast, whether it goes downward to the earth? 22 And I have seen that nothing is better than that the man should rejoice in his works; for that is his portion; for who can bring him to see what shall be after him?
2 And be not conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, in order to prove by you what is the good and pleasing and perfect will of God.
3 aged women likewise in reverent behavior, not slanderers, not having been enslaved by much wine, teachers of good, 4 that they might train the young women to be lovers of husbands, lovers of children, 5 discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God may not be blasphemed,
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth; 2 and the earth being without form and empty, and darkness on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moving gently on the face of the waters, 3 then God said, Let light be! And there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good, and God separated between the light and darkness. 5 And God called the light, Day. And He called the darkness, Night. And there was evening, and there was morning the first day. 6 And God said, Let an expanse be in the midst of the waters, and let it divide between the waters and the waters. 7 And God made the expanse, and He separated between the waters which were under the expanse and the waters which were above the expanse. And it was so. 8 And God called the expanse, Heavens. And there was evening, and there was morning the second day. 9 And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be collected to one place, and let the dry land appear. And it was so. 10 And God called the dry land, Earth. And He called the collection of the waters, Seas. And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth sprout tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed, the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it on the earth. And it was so. 12 And the earth bore tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed according to its kind, and the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning the third day. 14 And God said, Let luminaries be in the expanse of the heavens, to divide between the day and the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years. 15 And let them be for luminaries in the expanse of the heavens, to give light on the earth. And it was so. 16 And God made the two great luminaries: the great luminary to rule the day, and the small luminary and the stars to rule the night. 17 And God set them in the expanse of the heavens, to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the 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 swarm with swarmers having a soul of life; and let the birds fly over the earth, on the face of the expanse of the heavens. 21 And God created the great sea animals, and all that creeps, having a living soul, which swarmed the waters, according to its kind; and every bird with wing according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas; and let the birds multiply in the earth. 23 And there was evening, and there was morning the fifth day. 24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the soul of life according to its kind: cattle, and creepers, and its beasts of the earth, according to its kind. And it was so. 25 And God made the beasts of the earth according to its kind, and cattle according to its kind, and all creepers of the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 26 And God said, let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth. 27 And God created the man in His own image; in the image of God He created him. He created them male and female. 28 And God blessed them; and God said to them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the sea, and over birds of the heavens, and over all beasts creeping on the earth. 29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every plant seeding seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree in which is the fruit of a tree seeding seed; it shall be food for you. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to all birds of the heavens, and to every creeper on the earth which has in it a living soul, every green plant is for food. And it was so. 31 And God saw everything that He had made and behold, it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning the sixth day.
40 And let all things be done decently and in order.
