Proverbs 3:21-24

21 My son, let them not depart from thine eyes, guard thou counsel, and purpose: 22 So shall they become life to thy soul, and an adorning to thy neck; 23 Then, shalt thou walk securely in thy way, and, thy foot, shall not stumble; 24 When thou sittest down, thou shalt have no dread, yea thou shalt lie down, and sweet shall be thy sleep.

Proverbs 3:24-26

24 When thou sittest down, thou shalt have no dread, yea thou shalt lie down, and sweet shall be thy sleep. 25 Be not thou afraid of sudden dread, nor of the desolation of the lawless, when it cometh. 26 For, Yahweh, will be in all thy ways, and will keep thy foot from the snare.

Psalms 77:1-20

1 To the Chief Musician. On "Jeduthun." Asaph’s, a Melody. 2 In the day of my distress—unto My Lord, will I seek, My hand, by night, hath been outstretched and never once became slack, My soul, hath refused to be consoled; 3 I remember God and I murmur, I muse, and my spirit swooneth. [Selah.] 4 Thou hast held, watching, mine eyes, I was driven to and fro, and could not speak; 5 I reasoned, Of the days of aforetime, Of the years of by-gone ages; 6 I remember my song in the night,—With my own heart, I commune, And my spirit, maketh search:— 7 For ages, will My Lord reject? And, not again, grant acceptance any more? 8 Hath his lovingkindness, come to a perpetual end? Hath his word failed to generation after generation? 9 Hath GOD, forgotten to show favour? Or hath he shut up, in anger, his compassions? [Selah.] 10 Then said I—An affliction to me, it is, The changing of the right hand of the Most High. 11 I will remember the doings of Yah, Surely I will remember, out of aforetime, thy wonderful way; 12 And will talk to myself of all thy work, And, of thy doings, will I muse:— 13 O God, in the sanctuary, is thy way,—Who is a great GOD like Elohim? 14 Thou, art GOD, doing wonderfully,—Thou hast made known, among the peoples, thy might; 15 Thou didst redeem, with thine arm—Thy people, Thy sons of Jacob and Joseph. [Selah.] 16 The waters saw thee, O God, The waters saw thee, They were in birth-throes, Yea the resounding deeps were stirred; 17 The clouds, poured down waters, The skies uttered, a voice, Yea, thine arrows, flew hither and thither; 18 The, voice of thy thunder, was in the whirlwind, Thy lightnings illumined the world, The earth, trembled and quaked; 19 In the sea, was thy way, And, thy path, in the mighty waters, And, thy footprints, could not be known: 20 Thou didst lead, like a flock, thy people, By the hand of Moses and Aaron.

Luke 5:16

16 howbeit, he, was retiring in the deserts, and engaging in prayer.

John 3:1-36

1 There was however, a man from among the Pharisees, Nicodemus, his name,—ruler of the Jews. 2 The same, came unto him, by night, and said unto him—Rabbi! we know that, from God, thou hast come, a teacher; for, no one, can be doing, these signs, which, thou, art doing, except, God, be with him. 3 Jesus answered, and said unto him—Verily, verily, I say unto thee: Except one be born from above, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4 Nicodemus saith unto him—How, can a man be born, when he is, old? Can he, into the womb of his mother, a second time, enter, and be born? 5 Jesus answered—Verily, verily, I say unto thee: Except one be born of water and spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which hath been born of the flesh, is, flesh, and, that which hath been born of the spirit, is, spirit. 7 Do not marvel, that I said unto thee: Ye must needs be born from above. 8 The spirit, where it pleaseth, doth breathe, and, the sound thereof, thou hearest; but knowest not, whence it cometh and whither it goeth: Thus, is every one who hath been born of the spirit. 9 Nicodemus answered, and said unto him—How, can these things, come about? 10 Jesus answered, and said unto him—Art, thou, the teacher of Israel, and, these things, knowest not? 11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee: What we know, we speak, and, of what we have seen, we bear witness, and, our witness, ye receive not. 12 If, the earthly things, I told you, and ye believe not, How, if I should tell you the heavenly things, will ye believe? 13 And, no one, hath ascended into heaven, save he that, out of heaven, descended,—The Son of Man. 14 And, just as, Moses, lifted up the serpent in the desert, so, must, the Son of Man, be lifted up,— 15 That, whosoever believeth in him, may have life age-abiding. 16 For God, so loved, the world, that, his Only Begotten Son, he gave,—that, whosoever believeth on him, might not perish, but have life age-abiding. 17 For God, sent not, his Son into the world, that he might judge the world, but, that the world might be saved through him. 18 He that believeth on him, is not to be judged: he that believeth not, already, hath been judged,—because he hath not believed on the name of the Only Begotten Son of God. 19 And, this, is the judgment: That, the light, hath come into the world,—and men loved, rather the darkness than the light, for, wicked, were their, works. 20 For, whosoever doth practise corrupt things, hateth the light, and cometh not unto the light, lest his works should be reproved; 21 But, he that doeth the truth, cometh unto the light, that his works may be, made manifest, that, in God, have they been wrought. 22 After these things, came Jesus, and his disciples, into the Judaean land; and, there, was he tarrying with them, and immersing. 23 And John also was immersing in Aenon, near to him, because, many waters, were there; and they were coming, and being immersed;— 24 for, not yet, had John been cast into prison. 25 There arose, therefore, a questioning, from among the disciples of John, with a Jew,—concerning purification. 26 And they came unto John, and said unto him—Rabbi! he who was with thee beyond the Jordan, unto whom, thou, hast borne witness, see! the same, is immersing; and, all, are coming unto him. 27 John answered, and said—A man can receive, nothing, except it have been given him out of heaven. 28 Ye yourselves, unto me, bear witness, that, I, said—I, am not the Christ; but—I am sent before, That One. 29 He that hath the bride, is, bridegroom; but, the friend of the bridegroom, who standeth by and hearkeneth unto him, greatly, rejoiceth, by reason of the voice of the bridegroom. This, my joy, therefore, is fulfilled. 30 That One, it behoveth to increase,—but, me, to decrease. 31 He that, from above, doth come, over all, is: he that is of the earth, of the earth, is, and, of the earth, doth speak: he that, out of heaven, doth come, over all, is, 32 What he hath seen and heard, of, the same, he beareth witness,—and, his witness, no one, receiveth:— 33 He that hath received his witness, hath set seal—that, God, is, true. 34 For, he whom God hath sent, the sayings of God, doth speak; for, not by measure, giveth he the Spirit. 35 The Father, loveth the Son, and, all things, hath given into his hand. 36 He that believeth on the Son, hath life age-abiding: whereas, he that yieldeth not unto the Son, shall not see life,—but, the anger of God, awaiteth him.

John 14:1-31

1 Let not your heart be troubled: Believe on God, and, on me, believe. 2 In the house of my Father, are, many dwellings; or else I would have told you, I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And, if I go, and prepare a place for you, again, am I coming, and will take you home unto—myself, that, where, I, am, ye also, may be. 4 And, whither, I, go, ye know, the way. 5 Thomas saith unto him—Lord! we know not whither thou goest: How know we, the way? 6 Jesus saith unto him—I, am the way, and the truth, and the life: No one, cometh unto the Father, but through me. 7 If ye had been getting to know me, my Father also, had ye known: from henceforth, are ye getting to know him, and have seen him. 8 Philip saith unto him—Lord! show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9 Jesus saith unto him—So long a time as this, have I been, with you,—and thou hast not come to know me, Philip? He that hath seen me, hath seen the Father. How art, thou, saying, Show us the Father? 10 Believest thou not, that, I, am in the Father, and, the Father, is, in me? The things which I am saying unto you, from myself, I speak not; but, the Father, within me abiding, doeth his works. 11 Believe me, That, I, am in the Father, and, the Father, in me;—or else, on account of the works themselves, believe ye. 12 Verily, verily, I say unto you—He that believeth on me, the works which, I, am doing, he also, shall do; and, greater than these, shall he do, because, I, unto the Father, am going,— 13 And because, whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, the same, will I do, that, the Father, may be glorified, in the Son: 14 If anything ye shall ask [me] in my name, the same, will I do. 15 If ye be loving me, my commandments, ye will keep; 16 And, I, will request the Father, and, Another Advocate, will he give unto you, that he may be with you age-abidingly, 17 The Spirit of truth,—which, the world, cannot receive, because it beholdeth it not, nor getteth to know it. But, ye, are getting to know it; because, with you, it abideth, and, in you, it is. 18 I will not leave you bereft,—I am coming unto you. 19 Yet a little, and, the world, no longer beholdeth me; but, ye, behold me,—Because, I, live, ye also, shall live. 20 In that day, shall ye get to know, That, I, am in my Father, and, ye, in me, and, I, in you. 21 He that hath my commandments and keepeth them, he, it is that loveth me; and, he that loveth me, shall be loved by my Father, and, I, will love him, and will manifest, myself, unto him. 22 Judas, not the Iscariot, saith unto him—Lord! what hath happened, that, unto us, thou art about to manifest thyself, and, not unto the world? 23 Jesus answered, and said unto him—If any man be loving me, my word, he will keep, and, my Father, will love him,—and, unto him, will we come, and, an abode with him, will we make. 24 He that loveth me not, doth not keep, my word;—and, the word which ye hear, is not mine, but, the Father’s who sent me. 25 These things, have I spoken unto you, With you abiding; 26 But, the Advocate, The Holy Spirit, which the Father will send in my name, He, will teach you all things, and will put you in mind, of all things which, I, told you. 27 Peace, I leave with you, My own peace, give, I, unto you,—Not as, the world, giveth, give, I, unto you:—Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28 Ye heard that, I, said unto you—I go my way, and I come unto you,—Had ye loved me, ye would have rejoiced, that I am going unto the Father, for, the Father, is, greater than I. 29 But, now, have I told you, before it cometh to pass, that, whensoever it shall come to pass, ye may believe. 30 No longer, many things, will I speak with you; for, the world’s ruler, is coming, and, in me, hath, nothing,— 31 But, that the world may get to know that I love the Father, and just as the Father hath given me commandment, so, I do. Be rousing yourselves! let us be leading on from hence.

Romans 12:2

2 And be not configuring yourselves unto this age, but be transforming yourselves by the renewing of your mind, to the end ye may be proving what is the thing willed by God—the good and acceptable and perfect.

2 Corinthians 6:4-5

4 But, in everything, commending ourselves as God’s ministers,—in much endurance, in tribulations, in necessities, in straits, 5 in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in toilings, in watchings, in fastings,

James 1:5-7

5 But, if any of you is sinning short of wisdom, let him be asking of God, Who giveth unto all freely and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him; 6 But let him be asking in faith, nothing, doubting, for, he that doubteth, is like a wave of the sea, wind-driven and storm-tossed,— 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive anything from the Lord—

Hebrews 11:6

6 But, apart from faith, it is impossible to be well-pleasing; for he that approacheth unto God—must needs have faith, that he is, and that, to them who seek him out, a rewarder he becometh.

Proverbs 3:21-26

21 My son, let them not depart from thine eyes, guard thou counsel, and purpose: 22 So shall they become life to thy soul, and an adorning to thy neck; 23 Then, shalt thou walk securely in thy way, and, thy foot, shall not stumble; 24 When thou sittest down, thou shalt have no dread, yea thou shalt lie down, and sweet shall be thy sleep. 25 Be not thou afraid of sudden dread, nor of the desolation of the lawless, when it cometh. 26 For, Yahweh, will be in all thy ways, and will keep thy foot from the snare.

Proverbs 3:24

24 When thou sittest down, thou shalt have no dread, yea thou shalt lie down, and sweet shall be thy sleep.

Psalms 4:8

8 In peace, will I lay me down and at once sleep; for, thou, Yahweh alone, wilt cause me, in security, to dwell.
