Matthew 7:1-29

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged;— 2 For, with what judgment ye judge, shall ye be judged,—and, with what measure ye mete, shall it be measured unto you. 3 Why, moreover, beholdest thou the mote, in the eye of thy brother,—while, the beam in thine own eye, thou dost not consider? 4 Or how wilt thou say unto thy brother, Let me cast the mote out of thine eye,—when 1o! a beam, is in thine own eye? 5 Hypocrite! cast first, out of thine own eye, the beam,—and, then, shalt thou see clearly to cast the mote, out of the eye of thy brother. 6 Do not give what is holy unto dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine,—lest once they trample, them, down with their feet, and, turning, tear, you. 7 Be asking, and it shall be given you, Be seeking, and ye shall find,—Be knocking, and it shall be opened unto you. 8 For, whosoever asketh, receiveth, and, he that seeketh, findeth,—and, to him that knocketh, shall it be opened. 9 Or what man, from among yourselves, whom his son shall ask for a loaf,—a stone, will give him? 10 Or, a fish also, shall ask,—a serpent, will give him? 11 If then, ye, being, evil, know how, good gifts, to be giving unto your children, how much more, will, your Father who is in the heavens, give good things to them that ask, him? 12 Whatsoever things, therefore, ye would, that men be doing unto you, so, be, ye also, doing, unto them,—for, this, is the law and the prophets. 13 Enter ye in at, the narrow gate; because broad and roomy is the way that leadeth unto destruction,—and, many, are they who enter thereby: 14 Because, narrow, is the gate, and, confined, the way, that leadeth unto life,—and, few, are they who find, it. 15 Beware of false prophets, who come unto you in clothing of sheep,—while, within, they are ravening wolves. 16 By their fruits, shall ye find, them, out,—unless perhaps men gather—from thorns, grapes! or, from thistles, figs! 17 So, every good tree, fine fruit, produceth,—whereas, the worthless tree, evil fruit, produceth: 18 It is, impossible, for a, good tree, to be bearing, evil fruit, neither doth, a worthless tree, produce, fine fruit. 19 Every tree that beareth not fine fruit, is hewn down, and, into fire, is cast. 20 After all then, by their fruits, shall ye find, them, out. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord! Lord! shall enter into the kingdom of the heavens,—but he that doeth the will of my Father who is in the heavens. 22 Many, will say unto me, in, that, day, Lord! Lord! did we not, in thy name, prophesy, and, in thy name, cast, demons, out,—and, in thy name, many works of power, perform? 23 And, then, will I confess unto them, Never, have I acknowledged you,—Depart from me, ye workers of lawlessness! 24 Every one, therefore, who heareth [these] my words, and doeth them, shall be likened to a prudent man, who built his house upon the rock; 25 And the rain descended, and the streams came, and the winds blew, and rushed against that house, and it fell not; for it had been founded upon the rock. 26 And every one who heareth these my words, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand; 27 And the rain descended, and the streams came, and the winds blew, and dashed against that house, and it fell; and, the fall thereof, was, great. 28 And it came to pass, when Jesus ended these words, with astonishment were the multitudes being struck at his teaching; 29 for he was teaching them as one having, authority, and not as their Scribes.

Matthew 15:1-39

1 Then, there come unto Jesus from Jerusalem Pharisees and Scribes, saying— 2 Wherefore do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands, when they eat bread! 3 But, he, answering, said unto them—Wherefore do, ye also, transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition? 4 For, God, said—Honour thy father and thy mother, and—He that revileth father or mother, let him, surely die! 5 But, ye, say—Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother—A gift! Whatsoever, out of me, thou mightest be profited, 6 in nowise, shall honour his father or his mother—and so ye have cancelled, the word of God, for the sake of your, tradition. 7 Hypocrites! well prophesied concerning you, Isaiah, saying— 8 This people, with the lips, do, honour, me, while, their heart, far off, holdeth from me; 9 But, in vain, do they pay devotions unto me, teaching, for teachings, the commandments of men. 10 And, calling near the multitude, he said to them—Hear and understand! 11 Not that which entereth into the mouth, defileth the man, but, that which proceedeth out of the mouth, the same, defileth the man, 12 Then, coming near, his disciples say unto him—Knowest thou, that the Pharisees, hearing the word, were caused to stumble? 13 And, he, answering, said—Every plant which my heavenly Father hath not planted, will be uprooted: 14 Let them alone! they are, blind leaders; and, if the, blind, lead the, blind, both, into a ditch, will fall. 15 And Peter, answering, said unto him, Declare to us the parable. 16 And, he, said, To this moment, are, ye also, without discernment? 17 Perceive ye not that, every thing which entereth into the mouth, into the stomach, findeth way, and, into the draught, is passed; 18 while, the things which proceed out of the mouth, out of the heart, come forth, and, they, defile the man. 19 For, out of the heart, come forth wicked designs,—murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false testimonies, profane speakings: 20 these, are the things which defile the man, but, the eating with unwashed hands, doth not defile the man. 21 And, going forth from thence, Jesus retired into the parts of Tyre and Zidon. 22 And lo! a Canaanite woman, from those bounds, coming forth, began crying out, saying, Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David! My daughter, is miserably demonized. 23 But, he, answered her no a word. And his disciples, coming forward began requesting him, saying—Dismiss her, because she is crying out after us. 24 But, he, answering, said, I was not sent forth, save unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 25 And, she, coming, began bowing down to him, saying, Lord! help me. 26 But, he, answering, said, It is, not seemly, to take the loaf of, the children, and cast, to the little dogs. 27 And, she, said, True, Lord! [for], even the little dogs, eat of the crumbs which are falling from the table of, their masters. 28 Then, answering, Jesus said to her—O woman! great, is, thy faith! Be it, done, for thee, as thou desirest. And her daughter was healed, from that hour. 29 And, passing on from thence, Jesus came near the sea of Galilee, and, going up into the mountain, was sitting there. 30 And there came unto him large multitudes, having with themselves the lame, the maimed, the blind, the dumb, and many others,—and they cast them near his feet, and he cured them; 31 so that the multitude marvelled, seeing the dumb speaking, the lame walking, and the blind seeing,—and they glorified the God of Israel. 32 But, Jesus, calling near his disciples, said—My compassions are moved towards the multitude, because [even now], three days, abide they with me, and they have nothing to eat,—and, to dismiss them fasting, I am not willing, lest by any means they faint in the way. 33 And his disciples say unto him—Whence, to us, in a wilderness, loaves in such numbers as to fill a multitude, so great? 34 And Jesus saith unto them—How many, loaves have ye? And, they, said,—Seven, and a few small fishes. 35 And, sending word to the multitude to recline upon the ground, 36 he took the seven loaves, and the fishes, and, giving thanks, brake,—and began giving to his disciples, and, the disciples, to the multitudes. 37 And they all did eat and were filled,—and, the remainder of the broken pieces, took they up, seven hampers, full. 38 And, they who did eat, were four thousand men, besides women and children. 39 And, dismissing the multitudes, he went up into the boat,—and came into the bounds of Magadan.

1 Corinthians 10:23

23 All things are allowable—but, not all things, are profitable,—all things are allowable—but, not all things, upbuild.

Luke 6:37

37 And do not judge, and in nowise shall ye be judged; and do not condemn, and in nowise shall ye be condemned; release, and ye shall be released;

John 4:23-24

23 But there cometh an hour, and, now, is,—when, the real worshippers, shall worship the Father in spirit and truth; for, even the Father, is seeking, such as these, as his worshippers. 24 God is, spirit; and, they that worship him, in spirit and truth, must needs worship.

Romans 14:16

16 Therefore, suffer not to be defamed, your own good thing;

1 Timothy 2:1-15

1 I exhort, therefore, first of all, that there be made—supplications, prayers, intercessions, thankgivings, in behalf of all men, 2 In behalf of kings, and all them who are, in eminent station; in order that, an undisturbed, and quiet life, we may lead, in all godliness and gravity: 3 This, is comely and acceptable before our Saviour God, 4 Who willeth, all men, to be saved, and, unto a personal knowledge of truth, to come; 5 For there is, one, God, one, mediator also, between God and men,—a man—Christ Jesus: 6 Who gave himself a ransom in behalf of all,—the testimony, in its own fit times: 7 Unto which, I, have been appointed proclaimer and apostle—Truth I speak, I utter no falsehood—a teacher of nations, in faith and truth. 8 I am minded, therefore, that—the men in every place be offering prayer, uplifting hands of lovingkindness, apart from anger and disputings; 9 In the same way, that, the women, in seemly attire, with modesty and sober-mindedness, be adorning themselves,—not with plaitings and ornamentation of gold, or with pearls, or with costly apparel,— 10 But, which becometh women promising godliness, through means of good works. 11 Let, a woman, in quietness, be learning in all submission; 12 But, teaching—unto a woman, I do not permit, nor yet to have authority over a man,—but to be in quietness; 13 For, Adam, first was formed, then Eve, 14 And, Adam, was not deceived, whereas, the woman, having been wholly deceived, hath come to be, in transgression; 15 She shall be saved, however, through means of the child-bearing,—if they abide in faith, and love, and holiness, with sobermindedness. Faithful, the saying.

Proverbs 1:1-33

1 The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, King of Israel: 2 For the knowledge of wisdom and correction, for discerning the sayings of intelligence; 3 For receiving the correction of prudence, righteousness and justice, and equity; 4 For giving To the simple shrewdness, To the young man, knowledge and discretion. 5 A wise man, will hear, and will increase learning, and a, discreet man, wise counsels, will acquire, 6 By gaining discernment of proverb, and satire, the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. 7 The reverence of Yahweh, is the beginning of knowledge, Wisdom and correction, the foolish have despised. 8 Hear, my son, the correction of thy father, and do not reject the instruction of thy mother; 9 For, a wreath of beauty, shall they be to thy head, and chains of ornament, to thy neck. 10 My son, if sinners entice thee, do not consent. 11 If they say—Come with us,—Let us lie in wait for blood, Let us watch in secret for him who is needlessly innocent; 12 Let us engulf them, like hades, alive, While in health, like them who are going down to the pit; 13 All costly substance, shall we find, We shall fill our houses with spoil; 14 Thy lot, shalt thou cast into our midst, One purse, shall there be, for us all. 15 My son, do not walk in the way with them, Withhold thy foot from their path. 16 For, their feet, to mischief, do run, and haste to the shedding of blood. 17 Surely, in vain, is spread the net, in the sight of aught that hath wings! 18 Yet, they, for their own blood, lie in wait, They watch in secret for their own life. 19 Such are the ways of every one that graspeth with greed, The life of the owners thereof, it taketh away! 20 Wisdom, in the open place, soundeth forth, in the broadways, she raiseth her voice; 21 At the head of bustling streets, she crieth aloud,—at the openings of the gates in the city—her sayings, she doth utter:— 22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and, scoffers, in scoffing, delight them? and, dullards, hate knowledge? 23 Will ye turn, at my reproof? Lo! I will pour out to you my spirit, I will make known my words to you. 24 Because I called, and ye refused, I stretched out my hand, and no one regarded; 25 But ye dismissed all my counsel, and, to my rebuke, would not yield, 26 I also, at your calamity, will laugh, I will mock, when cometh your dread; 27 When cometh as a crashing your dread, and, your calamity, as a storm-wind, overtaketh, when there come upon you, distress and anguish. 28 Then, will they call me, but I will not answer, they will seek me diligently, but shall not find me. 29 Because they hated knowledge, and, the reverence of Yahweh, did not choose; 30 Consented not to my counsel, disdained all my rebuke, 31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and, with their own counsels, be filled. 32 For, the turning away of the simple, will slay them,—and, the carelessness of dullards, will destroy them. 33 Whereas, he that hearkeneth unto me, shall dwell safely, and be at rest, without dread of misfortune.

Leviticus 19:32

32 Before a hoary head, shalt thou rise up, And shalt honour the presence of an elder,—So shalt thou stand in awe of thy God—I, am Yahweh.

Colossians 3:12

12 Put on, therefore, as men chosen of God, holy and beloved, tender affections of compassion, graciousness, lowliness of mind, meekness, long-suffering,

Philippians 4:5

5 Let, your considerateness, be known unto all men. The Lord, is near:—

1 Corinthians 14:40

40 But let, all things, with comeliness, and by arrangement, be done.

Colossians 4:5-6

5 In wisdom, be walking towards them who are without,—the opportunity, buying out for yourselves, 6 Your discourse being always with benefit, with salt, seasoned,—that ye may know how it behoveth you, unto each one, to be making answer.
