3 I determined also, as soon as I had searched out diligently all things from the beginning, that then I would write unto thee, good Theophilus,
Bible verses about "orderliness" | MSTC
16 for by him were all things created, things that are in heaven, and things that are in earth: things visible, and things invisible: whether they be majesty or lordship, either rule or power. 17 All things are created by him, and in him, and he is before all things, and in him all things have their being.
7 Remember them which have the oversight of you, which have declared unto you the word of God: consider the conversation of their living, the end of whose conversation see that ye look upon, and follow their faith.
1 Every thing hath a time; yea, all that is under the heaven, hath his convenient season. 2 There is a time to be born, and a time to die. There is a time to plant, and a time to pluck up the thing, that is planted; 3 A time to slay, and a time to make whole; A time to break 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 cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 A time to win, and a time to lose; A time to spare, and a time to spend; 7 A time to cut in pieces, 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 else hath a man that doth anything, but weariness and labour? 10 For as touching the travail and carefulness which God hath given unto men, I see that he hath given it them, to be exercised in it. 11 All this hath he ordained marvelous goodly, to every thing his due time. He hath planted ignorance also in the hearts of men, that they should not find out the ground of his works, which he doth from the beginning to the end. 12 So I perceived, that in these things there is nothing better for a man, then to be merry and to do well so long as he liveth. 13 For all that a man eateth and drinketh, yea whatsoever a man enjoyeth of all his labor, the same is a gift of God. 14 I considered also that whatsoever God doth, it continueth forever, and that nothing can be put unto it, nor taken from it: And that God doth it to the intent that men should fear him. 15 The thing that hath been, is now; and the thing that is for to come, hath been afore time: for God restoreth again the thing that was past. 16 Moreover, I saw under the sun ungodliness in the stead of judgment, and iniquity instead of righteousness. 17 Then thought I in my mind, "God shall separate the righteous from the ungodly, and then shall be the time and judgment of all counsels and works." 18 I communed with mine own heart also concerning the children of men: how God hath chosen them, and yet letteth them appear as though they were beasts. 19 For it happeneth unto men as it doth unto beasts, and as the one dieth, so dieth the other. Yea, they have both one manner of breath, so that - in this - a man hath no preeminence above a beast, but all are subdued unto vanity. 20 They go all unto one place, for as they be all of dust, so shall they all turn unto dust again. 21 Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the breath of the beast that goeth down into the earth? 22 Wherefore I perceive, that there is nothing better for a man, than to be joyful in his labour, for that is his portion. But who will bring him to see the thing that shall come after him?
2 And fashion not yourselves like unto this world: But be changed through the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what thing that good, that acceptable, and perfect will of God is.
3 And the elder women likewise that they be in such raiment as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much drinking, but teachers of honest things, 4 to make the young women soberminded, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 to be of discreet, chaste, housewifely, good, and obedient unto their own husbands, that the word of God be not evil spoken of.
1 In the beginning God created heaven and earth. 2 The Earth was void and empty and darkness was upon the deep, and the spirit of God moved upon the water. 3 Then God said, "Let there be light." And there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good: and divided the light from the darkness, 5 and called the light "day," and the darkness "night." And so of the evening and morning was made the first day. 6 And God said, "Let there be a firmament between the waters, and let it divide the waters asunder." 7 Then God made the firmament, and parted the waters which were under the firmament, from the waters that were above the firmament: And it was so. 8 And God called the firmament "heaven." And so of the evening and morning was made the second day. 9 And God said, "Let the waters that are under heaven gather themselves unto one place, that the dry land may appear." And it came so to pass. 10 And God called the dry land "the earth" and the gathering together of waters called he "the sea." And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth herb and grass that sow seed, and fruitful trees that bear fruit, every one in his kind, having their seed in themselves, upon the earth." And it came so to pass. 12 And the earth brought forth herb and grass sowing seed, every one in his kind, and trees bearing fruit and having their seed in themselves, every one in his kind. And God saw that it was good: 13 and then of the evening and morning was made the third day. 14 Then said God, "Let there be lights in the firmament of heaven, to divide the day from the night; that they may be unto signs, seasons, days and years. 15 And let them be lights in the firmament of heaven, to shine upon the earth." And so it was. 16 And God made two great lights: a greater light to rule the day, and a lesser light to rule the night; and he made stars also. 17 And God put them in the firmament of heaven to shine upon the earth, 18 and to rule the day and the night, and to divide the light from darkness. And God saw that it was good: 19 and so of the evening and morning was made the fourth day. 20 And God said, "Let the water bring forth creatures that move and have life, and fowls for to fly over the earth under the firmament of heaven." 21 And God created great whales and all manner of creatures that live and move, which the waters brought forth in their kinds, and all manner of feathered fowls in their kinds. And God saw that it was good: 22 and God blessed them, saying, "Grow and multiply, and fill the waters of the seas, and let the fowls multiply upon the earth." 23 And so of the evening and morning was made the fifth day. 24 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures in their kinds: cattle and worms and beasts of the earth in their kinds." And so it came to pass. 25 And God made the beasts of the earth in their kinds, and cattle in their kinds, and all manner worms of the earth in their kinds: and God saw that it was good. 26 And God said, "Let us make man in our similitude and after our likeness: that he may have rule over the fish of the sea, and over the fowls of the air, and over cattle, and over all the earth, and over all worms that creep on the earth." 27 And God created man after his likeness, after the likeness of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, "Grow and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and over the fowls of the air, and over all the beasts that move on the earth. 29 And God said, "See, I have given you all herbs that sow seed which are on all the earth, and all manner trees that have fruit in them and sow seed; to be meat for you, 30 and for all beasts of the earth, and unto all fowls of the air, and unto all that creepeth on the earth wherein is life, that they may have all manner herbs and grass for to eat." And even so it was. 31 And God beheld all that he had made, and lo they were exceeding good: and so of the evening and morning was made the sixth day.
40 And let all things be done honestly and in order.
