1 There was a man in the country of Ausitis whose name was Job. He was a man of truth and integrity, just, pious, and who abstained from every thing that was evil. 2 He had seven sons and three daughters; and his cattle were seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen, five hundred breeding asses. 3 His attendants were numerous, and his works great in the country. He was also a man of illustrious birth, among the people of the east. 4 Now his sons had a custom of meeting at each others houses, and making an entertainment, each on his day, taking along with them their three sisters to eat and drink with them. 5 And soon as the days of the entertainment were over, Job sent for, and purified them early the next morning, and offered sacrifices for them according to their numbers; a young bull for a sin offering for each of them; for Job said, Perhaps my children have in their mind conceived evil before God. In this manner therefore Job acted after every of those days. 6 And it came to pass that on the same day, when lo! the angels of God came to present themselves before the Lord, Satan also came with them; 7 and the Lord said to Satan, Whence comest thou? And Satan in reply said to the Lord, Having gone round the earth, and roved the whole of it under heaven, I am come here. 8 And the Lord said to him, Hast thou harboured in thy mind any thing against my servant Job? For there is not like him on the earth, a man unblameable, true, pious, abstaining from every thing evil. 9 And Satan in reply said before the Lord, Doth Job worship the Lord for nothing? 10 Hast thou not made a hedge about all that he hath, abroad and at home, and about all that belong to him round about, and blessed the works of his hands, and multiplied his cattle on the earth? 11 But put forth thine hand and touch all that he hath, he will indeed openly renounce thee. 12 Then the Lord said to Satan, Behold all that he hath I deliver into thine hand; but himself thou must not touch. So Satan went out from the Lord, 13 and after that, on the same day, when the sons and daughters of Job were drinking wine at their elder brother's house, 14 lo! a messenger came to Job, and said to him, The oxen were ploughing and the asses feeding near them, 15 and the plunderers came and carried them off. Thy servants also they slew with the sword, and I alone having escaped, am come to tell thee. 16 While he was yet speaking, another messenger came, and said to Job; Fire hath fallen from heaven and burned up the sheep, and devoured the shepherds likewise; and I, alone having escaped, am come to tell thee. 17 While this one was still speaking, another messenger came and said to Job, The horsemen, having formed three bands against us, surrounded the camels and have carried them off, and slain thy servants with the sword; and I, alone having escaped, am come to tell thee. 18 While he was still speaking, another messenger came, and said to Job, While thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking at their eldest brother's, 19 a great blast of wind came up suddenly from the wilderness, and took the four corners of the house, so that the house fell upon thy children, and they are dead, and I, alone having escaped, am come to tell thee. 20 Upon this Job rising up rent his clothes, and shaved his head, and falling on the ground he worshipped 21 and said, Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked I shall depart hence. The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away. As it pleased the Lord so hath it come to pass. Blessed be the name of the Lord. 22 In all these things which befel him, Job transgressed not against the Lord, nor imputed indiscretion to his God.
Bible verses about "morning prayer" | Thomson
1 For the conclusion, concerning her who obtaineth the inheritance. A Psalm by David. Lord, hear my words; attend to my cry. 2 Listen to the sound of my prayer, my king and my God! For to thee, Lord, I will pray. 3 In the morning thou shalt hear my voice: in the morning I will wait on thee and look up. 4 Because thou art not a God pleased with iniquity; therefore he who is wicked cannot dwell near thee: 5 nor shall transgressors continue in thy presence. Thou Lord, hatest all the workers of iniquity: 6 thou wilt destroy all them who speak lies; a bloody and deceitful man the Lord abhorreth. 7 As for me, I through thine abundant mercy, will go to thy house: I will worship before thy holy temple, in thy fear. 8 Lead me, Lord, in thy saving goodness: direct my way before thee, because of mine enemies; because there is no truth in their mouth. 9 Their heart is false; their throat, an open sepulchre: with their tongue they practised deceit. 10 Judge them, God; let them fall for their devices: according to the multitude of their crimes cast them out; because they have provoked thee, Lord. 11 But let all, whose hope is in thee, rejoice. They shall exult forever, and thou wilt dwell among them: and all who love thy name will glory in thee; 12 because thou wilt bless the righteous. Thou, Lord, hast covered us as with armour of favour.
7 As for me, I through thine abundant mercy, will go to thy house: I will worship before thy holy temple, in thy fear.
1 For the conclusion. A Psalm by David, when Nathan the prophet came to him after he had gone to Bersabe. Have mercy upon me, God, according to thy great compassion: and according to the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out this my crime, 2 wash me thoroughly from this iniquity of mine; and purify me from this my sin. 3 For I acknowledge my transgression; and my sin is continually before me. 4 Against thee especially I have sinned; and in thy sight done this evil. So that thou must be justified in thine acts, and must overcome, when thou art judged. 5 For behold I was born in iniquity; in sins my mother conceived me: 6 for behold thou lovedst truth; to me thou hadst manifested the obscure and hidden things of thy wisdom. 7 Sprinkle me with hyssop and I shall be purified; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 8 Cause me to hear joy and gladness; let the bones, which have been humbled, rejoice. 9 Turn away thy face from my sins; and blot out all mine iniquities. 10 Create in me, God, a pure heart; and renew a right spirit within me. 11 Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy holy spirit from me. 12 Restore to me the joy of thy salvation; and support me with a becoming spirit, 13 that I may teach transgressors thy ways, and sinners may turn to thee. 14 Deliver me from blood guiltiness, God, the God of my salvation! That my tongue may with joy proclaim thy forgiving mercy. 15 Lord, open my lips, that my mouth may proclaim thy praise. 16 Hadst thou desired sacrifice, I would have given it. In whole burnt offerings thou wilt not take delight. 17 The sacrifice for God is a contrite spirit. A broken and an humble heart, thou, God, wilt not despise. 18 Deal favourably, O Lord, in thy good pleasure, with Sion. And let the walls of Jerusalem be builded. 19 Then wilt thou be pleased with a sacrifice of righteousness as an offering, and on thine altar young bulls shall then be offered up as whole burnt offerings.
30 send forth thy breath and they are created: thou indeed canst renew the face of the earth.
35 Let your loins be girded, and your lamps burning;
29 Whereupon Jesus answered, This is the chief of all the commandments: "Hear, O Israel, The Lord is our God:
79 to give light to them who are sitting in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet to the way of peace."
1 In the beginning God made the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was invisible and unfurnished and there was darkness over this abyss; and a breath of God was brought on above the water. 3 And God said, "Let there be Light;" and there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good. And God made a separation between the light and the darkness. 5 And God called the light day; and the darkness he called night. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The first day. 6 Then God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the water; and let it make a separation between water and water." And it was so. God made the firmament; and God made a separation between the water which was below the firmament
8 and the water which was above the firmament. And God called the firmament, heaven. And God saw that it was good. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The second day. 9 Then God said, "Let the water which is below the heaven be gathered into one receptacle and let the dry land appear." 10 And it was so. The waters which were below the heaven were gathered into their several collections, and the dry land appeared. And God called the dry land, earth; and the collections of the waters he called, seas. And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, "Let the earth produce the grassy plant with sowing seed according to kind and according to likeness, and the fruit bearing tree together with the fruit, the seed of which is in it according to kind, upon the earth." And it was so. 12 The earth indeed produced the grassy plant with sowing seed according to kind and according to likeness, and the fruit tree together with fruit, the seed of which is in it, according to kind, in the earth. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The third day. 14 Then God said, "Let there be luminaries in the firmament of heaven, to give light on the earth; to make a separation between the day and the night: and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and for years; 15 and let them be for an illumination in the firmament of heaven so as to shine on the earth." And it was so. 16 God indeed made the two great luminaries, the greater luminary for the regulations of the day, and the lesser luminary, with the stars, for the regulations of the night. 17 And God placed them in the firmament of heaven so as to shine on the earth, 18 and to regulate the day and the night, and to make a division between the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The fourth day. 20 Then God said, "Let the waters produce moving creatures having life; and winged creatures flying above the earth in the open firmament of heaven." And it was so. 21 God indeed made the great sea monsters and every species of moving animals which the waters produced according to their kinds, and every winged flying creature according to kind. And God saw that they were good. 22 And God blessed them saying, "Increase and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let flying creatures be multiplied on the earth." 23 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The fifth day. 24 Then God said, "Let the earth produce animal life according to kind; four footed beasts and reptiles and wild beasts of the earth according to kind." And it was so. 25 God indeed made the wild beasts of the earth according to their kind, and the cattle according to their kind, and all the reptiles of the earth according to kind. And God saw that they were good. 26 Then God said, "Let us make man after our image and after a likeness; and let them have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the cattle, and the whole earth, and all the reptiles which creep on the earth." 27 So God made man. After an image of God he made him. A male and a female he made them. 28 And God blessed them saying, "Increase and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all the cattle, and all the earth, and all the reptiles which creep on the earth." 29 Moreover God said, "Behold I have given you every seed bearing plant, the sowing seed which is on the whole earth, and every tree which hath in itself the fruit of seminal seed, you shall have for food: 30 And to all the beasts of the earth, and to all the birds of the air, and to every reptile on the earth, which hath in it animal life, I have also given every green herb for food." And it was so. 31 And God saw all the things which he had made, and behold they were very good. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The sixth day.
12 Was it in concert with thee that I ordered the morning light; and that the day spring knew its appointed time
14 And the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart, will be continually acceptable in thy sight: Lord, my helper and my redeemer.
8 Awake my glory; awake psaltery and kithara: I myself will awake early.
17 Them who love me, I love: and they who seek me shall find me.
105 NUN. Thy law is a lamp to my feet; and a light to my paths.
1 A Psalm by David, when he was in the wilderness of Idumea. O GOD, my God! to approach thee, I rise early. My soul thirsted for thee. For thee [I thirst] with all the vehement desire with which my flesh pines in a land, desert, trackless and without water. 2 Thus have I appeared to thee in the sanctuary; that I might see thy power and thy glory. 3 Because thy kindness is better than life; my lips shall continually praise thee. 4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: and in thy name I will lift up my hands. 5 Let my soul be filled as with marrow and fatness: that my joyful lips may praise thy name. 6 If I recollected thee on my bed: in the morning watches I meditated on thee. 7 Because thou hast been my helper: therefore in the shadow of thy wings I will rejoice. 8 My soul hath kept close to thee: thy right hand hath supported me. 9 But as for these who sought my life in vain; they shall go to the lowest parts of the earth. 10 They shall be delivered up to the edge of the sword: they shall be portions for jackals. 11 But the joy of the king will be in God. Every one who sweareth by him shall glory; because the mouth of them who speak lies is stopped.
35 And in the morning, when the night was far advanced, he arose and went out, and retired to a solitary place, and there prayed;
14 In the morning we were filled with thy mercy. We indeed rejoiced and were made glad.
3 In the morning thou shalt hear my voice: in the morning I will wait on thee and look up.
