« Proverbs 20 | Proverbs 21 | Proverbs 22 »
On Life and Conduct21:1 The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it wherever He wishes.
2 Every man’s way is right in his own eyes, But the LORD weighs the hearts.
3 To do righteousness and justice Is desired by the LORD more than sacrifice.
4 Haughty eyes and a proud heart, The lamp of the wicked, is sin.
5 The plans of the diligent lead surely to advantage, But everyone who is hasty comes surely to poverty.
6 The acquisition of treasures by a lying tongue Is a fleeting vapor, the pursuit of death.
7 The violence of the wicked will drag them away, Because they refuse to act with justice.
8 The way of a guilty man is crooked, But as for the pure, his conduct is upright.
9 It is better to live in a corner of a roof Than in a house shared with a contentious woman.
10 The soul of the wicked desires evil; His neighbor finds no favor in his eyes.
11 When the scoffer is punished, the naive becomes wise; But when the wise is instructed, he receives knowledge.
12 The righteous one considers the house of the wicked, Turning the wicked to ruin.
13 He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor Will also cry himself and not be answered.
14 A gift in secret subdues anger, And a bribe in the bosom, strong wrath.
15 The exercise of justice is joy for the righteous, But is terror to the workers of iniquity.
16 A man who wanders from the way of understanding Will rest in the assembly of the dead.
17 He who loves pleasure will become a poor man; He who loves wine and oil will not become rich.
18 The wicked is a ransom for the righteous, And the treacherous is in the place of the upright.
19 It is better to live in a desert land Than with a contentious and vexing woman.
20 There is precious treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise, But a foolish man swallows it up.
21 He who pursues righteousness and loyalty Finds life, righteousness and honor.
22 A wise man scales the city of the mighty And brings down the stronghold in which they trust.
23 He who guards his mouth and his tongue, Guards his soul from troubles.
24 “Proud,” “Haughty,” “Scoffer,” are his names, Who acts with insolent pride.
25 The desire of the sluggard puts him to death, For his hands refuse to work;
26 All day long he is craving, While the righteous gives and does not hold back.
27 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination, How much more when he brings it with evil intent!
28 A false witness will perish, But the man who listens to the truth will speak forever.
29 A wicked man displays a bold face, But as for the upright, he makes his way sure.
30 There is no wisdom and no understanding And no counsel against the LORD.
31 The horse is prepared for the day of battle, But victory belongs to the LORD.
« Ephesians 1 | Ephesians 2 | Ephesians 3 »
Made Alive in Christ 2:1 And you were dead in your trespasses and sins,
2 in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.
3 Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.
4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
5 even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
6 and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
7 so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.
10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
11 Therefore remember that formerly you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called “Uncircumcision” by the so-called “Circumcision,” which is performed in the flesh by human hands--
12 remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
13 But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
14 For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall,
15 by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace,
16 and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity.
17 AND HE CAME AND PREACHED PEACE TO YOU WHO WERE FAR AWAY, AND PEACE TO THOSE WHO WERE NEAR;
18 for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.
19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household,
20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone,
21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord,
22 in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit.
