THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Genesis (Author Moses)

1:29And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

1:30And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

2:16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

8:22While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

9:1And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

9:2And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.

9:3Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.

22:14And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.

22:17That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

26:4And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;

26:5Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

28:20And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on,

28:21So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God:

49:11Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:

49:12His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.

49:20Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.

49:24But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)

49:25Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:

Exodus (Author Moses)

15:26And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

23:22But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.

23:25And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

23:26There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.

34:24For I will cast out the nations before thee, and enlarge thy borders: neither shall any man desire thy land, when thou shalt go up to appear before the LORD thy God thrice in the year.

Leviticus (Author Moses)

25:18Wherefore ye shall do my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; and ye shall dwell in the land in safety.

25:19And the land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your fill, and dwell therein in safety.

25:20And if ye shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our increase:

25:21Then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for three years.

25:22And ye shall sow the eighth year, and eat yet of old fruit until the ninth year; until her fruits come in ye shall eat of the old store.

26:4Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.

26:5And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely.

26:6And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.

26:10And ye shall eat old store, and bring forth the old because of the new.

Numbers (Author Moses)

10:29And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel the Midianite, Moses' father in law, We are journeying unto the place of which the LORD said, I will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good: for the LORD hath spoken good concerning Israel.

Deuteronomy (Author Moses)

1:10The LORD your God hath multiplied you, and, behold, ye are this day as the stars of heaven for multitude.

2:7For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty years the LORD thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing.

4:4But ye that did cleave unto the LORD your God are alive every one of you this day.

4:40Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.

5:29O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!

5:33Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.

6:2That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.

6:3Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.

6:4Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:

6:5And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

6:6And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

6:7And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

6:8And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

6:9And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

6:10And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not,

6:11And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full;

6:12Then beware lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

6:13Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.

6:14Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;

6:15(For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.

6:16Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted him in Massah.

6:17Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee.

6:18And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the LORD: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers,

6:19To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the LORD hath spoken.

6:20And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD our God hath commanded you?

6:21Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh's bondmen in Egypt; and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:

6:22And the LORD shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:

6:23And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers.

6:24And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.

6:25And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.

7:13And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee.

7:14Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle.

7:15And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.

7:16And thou shalt consume all the people which the LORD thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that will be a snare unto thee.

7:17If thou shalt say in thine heart, These nations are more than I; how can I dispossess them?

7:18Thou shalt not be afraid of them: but shalt well remember what the LORD thy God did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt;

7:19The great temptations which thine eyes saw, and the signs, and the wonders, and the mighty hand, and the stretched out arm, whereby the LORD thy God brought thee out: so shall the LORD thy God do unto all the people of whom thou art afraid.

7:20Moreover the LORD thy God will send the hornet among them, until they that are left, and hide themselves from thee, be destroyed.

7:21Thou shalt not be affrighted at them: for the LORD thy God is among you, a mighty God and terrible.

7:22And the LORD thy God will put out those nations before thee by little and little: thou mayest not consume them at once, lest the beasts of the field increase upon thee.

7:23But the LORD thy God shall deliver them unto thee, and shall destroy them with a mighty destruction, until they be destroyed.

7:24And he shall deliver their kings into thine hand, and thou shalt destroy their name from under heaven: there shall no man be able to stand before thee, until thou have destroyed them.

8:3And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.

8:4Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years.

8:18But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

10:18He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment.

11:7But your eyes have seen all the great acts of the LORD which he did.

11:8Therefore shall ye keep all the commandments which I command you this day, that ye may be strong, and go in and possess the land, whither ye go to possess it;

11:12A land which the LORD thy God careth for: the eyes of the LORD thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.

11:13And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,

11:14That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.

11:15And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full.

12:7And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee.

12:28Observe and hear all these words which I command thee, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee for ever, when thou doest that which is good and right in the sight of the LORD thy God.

13:17And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine hand: that the LORD may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers;

13:18When thou shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of the LORD thy God.

15:4Save when there shall be no poor among you; for the LORD shall greatly bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it:

15:5Only if thou carefully hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all these commandments which I command thee this day.

15:6For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee.

26:19And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto the LORD thy God, as he hath spoken.

28:2And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.

28:3Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.

28:4Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.

28:5Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.

28:6Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

28:7The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.

28:8The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

28:9The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.

28:10And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee.

28:11And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers to give thee.

28:12The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.

28:13And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:

29:5And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon thy foot.

29:9Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do.

30:15See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

30:16In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

30:17But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;

30:18I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.

30:19I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

30:20That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

32:11As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:

32:12So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.

32:13He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;

32:14Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape.

32:47For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.

20:6And said, O LORD God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee?

20:26And on the fourth day they assembled themselves in the valley of Berachah; for there they blessed the LORD: therefore the name of the same place was called, The valley of Berachah, unto this day.

5:9Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number:

5:10Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the fields:

5:11To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety.

8:21Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing.

11:17And thine age shall be clearer than the noonday; thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning.

11:18And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety.

11:19Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; yea, many shall make suit unto thee.

12:23He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them again.

22:18Yet he filled their houses with good things: but the counsel of the wicked is far from me.

22:24Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.

22:25Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver.

22:28Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.

29:5When the Almighty was yet with me, when my children were about me;

29:19My root was spread out by the waters, and the dew lay all night upon my branch.

29:20My glory was fresh in me, and my bow was renewed in my hand.

33:14For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.

33:15In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;

33:16Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,

33:17That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.

33:18He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.

33:19He is chastened also with pain upon his bed, and the multitude of his bones with strong pain:

33:20So that his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty meat.

33:21His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out.

33:22Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers.

33:23If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man his uprightness:

33:24Then he is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.

33:25His flesh shall be fresher than a child's: he shall return to the days of his youth:

33:26He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness.

33:27He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not;

33:28He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.

33:29Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,

33:30To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.

36:11If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.

37:6For he saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of his strength.

37:7He sealeth up the hand of every man; that all men may know his work.

37:8Then the beasts go into dens, and remain in their places.

37:9Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.

37:10By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.

37:11Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud:

37:12And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth.

37:13He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy.

37:14Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.

37:15Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine?

37:16Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?

37:17How thy garments are warm, when he quieteth the earth by the south wind?

37:18Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?

37:19Teach us what we shall say unto him; for we cannot order our speech by reason of darkness.

37:20Shall it be told him that I speak? if a man speak, surely he shall be swallowed up.

37:21And now men see not the bright light which is in the clouds: but the wind passeth, and cleanseth them.

37:22Fair weather cometh out of the north: with God is terrible majesty.

37:23Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.

37:24Men do therefore fear him: he respecteth not any that are wise of heart.

38:25Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;

38:26To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man;

38:27To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?

38:41Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.

39:5Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?

39:6Whose house I have made the wilderness, and the barren land his dwellings.

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

21:3For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head.

21:4He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.

21:5His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him.

23:1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

23:2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

23:3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

23:4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

23:5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

23:6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

33:12Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

33:15He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.

34:7The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

34:9O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.

34:10The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.

36:6Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.

36:7How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.

37:3Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

37:19They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.

37:22For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.

37:25I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

37:34Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.

40:5Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

44:1We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.

44:2How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out.

44:3For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.

65:9Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.

65:10Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.

65:11Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.

65:12They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.

65:13The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.

67:6Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.

68:6God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

68:9Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary.

68:10Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor.

69:35For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.

69:36The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein.

71:6By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee.

71:7I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.

71:15My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.

72:16There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.

78:52But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.

78:53And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.

78:54And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to this mountain, which his right hand had purchased.

78:55He cast out the heathen also before them, and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents.

81:13Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways!

81:14I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.

81:15The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever.

81:16He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.

85:12Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.

87:5And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.

100:3Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

103:3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

103:4Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

103:5Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

104:10He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.

104:11They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.

104:12By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.

104:13He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.

104:14He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;

104:15And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.

104:16The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;

104:17Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.

104:18The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.

104:19He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.

104:24O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.

104:25So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.

104:26There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.

104:27These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.

104:28That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.

104:29Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.

104:30Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.

105:14He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes;

105:15Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

105:16Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff of bread.

105:17He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant:

105:18Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:

105:19Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him.

105:20The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free.

105:21He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance:

105:22To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.

105:23Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.

105:24And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies.

105:25He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtilly with his servants.

105:26He sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom he had chosen.

105:27They shewed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham.

105:28He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against his word.

105:29He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.

105:30Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their kings.

105:31He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice in all their coasts.

105:32He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land.

105:33He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the trees of their coasts.

105:34He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillers, and that without number,

105:35And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.

105:36He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength.

105:37He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.

105:38Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell upon them.

105:39He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night.

105:40The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.

105:41He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river.

105:42For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant.

105:43And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness:

105:44And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people;

105:45That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye the LORD.

107:1O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

107:2Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;

107:3And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.

107:4They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.

107:5Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.

107:6Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.

107:7And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.

107:8Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

107:9For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

107:10Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron;

107:11Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High:

107:12Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help.

107:13Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.

107:14He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder.

107:15Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

107:16For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.

107:17Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.

107:18Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.

107:19Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.

107:20He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

107:21Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

107:22And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.

107:23They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;

107:24These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.

107:25For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.

107:26They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.

107:27They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end.

107:28Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.

107:29He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.

107:30Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

107:31Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

107:32Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.

107:33He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;

107:34A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.

107:35He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.

107:36And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;

107:37And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.

107:38He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.

107:39Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.

107:40He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way.

107:41Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock.

107:42The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.

107:43Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.

111:5He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant.

113:6Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!

113:7He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;

113:8That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.

113:9He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.

115:16The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD'S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

116:1I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.

116:2Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.

116:3The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.

116:4Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.

116:5Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.

116:6The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.

116:7Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

116:8For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.

116:9I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.

116:10I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:

116:11I said in my haste, All men are liars.

116:12What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?

116:13I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.

116:14I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.

116:15Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.

118:5I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place.

118:6The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

118:13Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me.

118:14The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.

122:9Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.

127:1Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

127:2It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.

127:3Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

127:4As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.

127:5Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

128:2For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.

128:3Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.

128:4Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD.

128:5The LORD shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.

128:6Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon Israel.

135:6Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.

135:7He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries.

135:8Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast.

135:9Who sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants.

135:10Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings;

135:11Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan:

135:12And gave their land for an heritage, an heritage unto Israel his people.

136:5To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:6To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:7To him that made great lights: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:8The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:9The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:10To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:11And brought out Israel from among them: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:12With a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:13To him which divided the Red sea into parts: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:14And made Israel to pass through the midst of it: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:15But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:16To him which led his people through the wilderness: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:17To him which smote great kings: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:18And slew famous kings: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:19Sihon king of the Amorites: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:20And Og the king of Bashan: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:21And gave their land for an heritage: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:22Even an heritage unto Israel his servant: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:23Who remembered us in our low estate: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:24And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:25Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever.

144:12That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:

144:13That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:

144:14That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.

144:15Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.

145:15The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.

145:16Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

146:7Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners:

146:8The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:

146:9The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.

147:8Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.

147:9He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.

147:13For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee.

147:14He maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth thee with the finest of the wheat.

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

2:21For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.

3:1My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:

3:2For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.

Ecclesiastes (Author Solomon)

2:24There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.

2:26For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy: but to the sinner he giveth travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that is good before God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit.

3:13And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.

5:19Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.

33:16He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.

43:20The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen.

7:36He brought them out, after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

55:10For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

61:9And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the LORD hath blessed.

62:9But they that have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the LORD; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness.

65:13Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed:

31:35Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name:

33:11The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the LORD. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the LORD.

36:33Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded.

36:34And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by.

36:35And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.

36:36Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.
