THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Exodus (Author Moses)

24:3And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which the LORD hath said will we do.

24:4And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.

24:5And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the LORD.

1 Kings (Author Compiled by Isaiah and Jeremiah from records of Nathan, Gad, Iddo, Ahijah, Jehu and others.)

12:6And king Rehoboam consulted with the old men, that stood before Solomon his father while he yet lived, and said, How do ye advise that I may answer this people?

12:7And they spake unto him, saying, If thou wilt be a servant unto this people this day, and wilt serve them, and answer them, and speak good words to them, then they will be thy servants for ever.

12:8But he forsook the counsel of the old men, which they had given him, and consulted with the young men that were grown up with him, and which stood before him:

12:9And he said unto them, What counsel give ye that we may answer this people, who have spoken to me, saying, Make the yoke which thy father did put upon us lighter?

12:10And the young men that were grown up with him spake unto him, saying, Thus shalt thou speak unto this people that spake unto thee, saying, Thy father made our yoke heavy, but make thou it lighter unto us; thus shalt thou say unto them, My little finger shall be thicker than my father's loins.

12:11And now whereas my father did lade you with a heavy yoke, I will add to your yoke: my father hath chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.

12:12So Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam the third day, as the king had appointed, saying, Come to me again the third day.

12:13And the king answered the people roughly, and forsook the old men's counsel that they gave him;

12:14And spake to them after the counsel of the young men, saying, My father made your yoke heavy, and I will add to your yoke: my father also chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.

12:15Wherefore the king hearkened not unto the people; for the cause was from the LORD, that he might perform his saying, which the LORD spake by Ahijah the Shilonite unto Jeroboam the son of Nebat.

2 Chronicles (Author Compiled by Isaiah and Ezra from records of Nathan, Gad, Iddo, Ahijah, Jehu and others.)

10:8But he forsook the counsel which the old men gave him, and took counsel with the young men that were brought up with him, that stood before him.

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


119:9Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

148:12Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:

148:13Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

1:1The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;

1:2To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;

1:3To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;

1:4To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.

1:5A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:

1:6To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.

1:7The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

1:8My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

1:9For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.

1:10My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.

1:11If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:

1:12Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:

1:13We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:

1:14Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:

1:15My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:

1:16For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.

1:17Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.

1:18And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.

1:19So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.

1:20Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:

1:21She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,

1:22How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

1:23Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

1:24Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

1:25But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

1:26I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

1:27When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

1:28Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

1:29For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:

1:30They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

1:31Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

1:32For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.

1:33But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

2:1My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

2:2So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;

2:3Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;

2:4If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

2:5Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

2:6For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

2:7He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.

2:8He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.

2:9Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.

2:10When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;

2:11Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:

2:12To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;

2:13Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;

2:14Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked;

2:15Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:

2:16To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;

2:17Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.

2:18For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.

2:19None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.

2:20That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.

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

2:22But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of 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.

3:3Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:

3:4So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

3:5Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

3:6In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

3:7Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

3:8It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

3:9Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:

3:10So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

3:11My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:

3:12For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

3:13Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

3:14For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.

3:15She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.

3:16Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.

3:17Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.

3:18She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

3:19The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

3:20By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.

3:21My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:

3:22So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.

3:23Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.

3:24When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

3:25Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.

3:26For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.

3:27Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.

3:28Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.

3:29Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.

3:30Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.

3:31Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.

3:32For the froward is abomination to the LORD: but his secret is with the righteous.

3:33The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.

3:34Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.

3:35The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

4:1Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.

4:2For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.

4:3For I was my father's son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.

4:4He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.

4:5Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

4:6Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.

4:7Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

4:8Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.

4:9She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.

4:10Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.

4:11I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.

4:12When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.

4:13Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.

4:14Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.

4:15Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.

4:16For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.

4:17For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.

4:18But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

4:19The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.

4:20My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.

4:21Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.

4:22For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

4:23Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

4:24Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.

4:25Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.

4:26Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.

4:27Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

5:1My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:

5:2That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.

5:3For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:

5:4But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword.

5:5Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.

5:6Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.

5:7Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.

5:8Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:

5:9Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:

5:10Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;

5:11And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,

5:12And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;

5:13And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!

5:14I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.

5:15Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.

5:16Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets.

5:17Let them be only thine own, and not strangers' with thee.

5:18Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.

5:19Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.

5:20And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?

5:21For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.

5:22His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.

5:23He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.

6:1My son, if thou be surety for thy friend, if thou hast stricken thy hand with a stranger,

6:2Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth.

6:3Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.

6:4Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids.

6:5Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.

6:6Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:

6:7Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,

6:8Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

6:9How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?

6:10Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:

6:11So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.

6:12A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.

6:13He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;

6:14Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.

6:15Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.

6:16These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

6:17A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

6:18An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

6:19A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

6:20My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother:

6:21Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.

6:22When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.

6:23For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

6:24To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.

6:25Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.

6:26For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.

6:27Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?

6:28Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?

6:29So he that goeth in to his neighbour's wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.

6:30Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;

6:31But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.

6:32But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.

6:33A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.

6:34For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.

6:35He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.

7:1My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.

7:2Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.

7:3Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.

7:4Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman:

7:5That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.

7:6For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,

7:7And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,

7:8Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,

7:9In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:

7:10And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.

7:11(She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:

7:12Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)

7:13So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,

7:14I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.

7:15Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.

7:16I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.

7:17I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.

7:18Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.

7:19For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:

7:20He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.

7:21With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.

7:22He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;

7:23Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.

7:24Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.

7:25Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.

7:26For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.

7:27Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.

10:1The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother.

13:1A wise son heareth his father's instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke.

15:5A fool despiseth his father's instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.

15:20A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish man despiseth his mother.

17:2A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.

17:25A foolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her that bare him.

19:13A foolish son is the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.

19:26He that wasteth his father, and chaseth away his mother, is a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach.

19:27Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.

20:29The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the gray head.

23:15My son, if thine heart be wise, my heart shall rejoice, even mine.

23:16Yea, my reins shall rejoice, when thy lips speak right things.

23:17Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the LORD all the day long.

23:18For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.

23:19Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.

23:20Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:

23:21For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.

23:22Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.

23:23Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.

23:24The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him.

23:25Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice.

23:26My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.

23:27For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.

23:28She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.

23:29Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes?

23:30They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.

23:31Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.

23:32At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.

23:33Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.

23:34Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.

23:35They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.

24:1Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them.

24:2For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.

24:3Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:

24:4And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

24:5A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.

24:6For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.

24:7Wisdom is too high for a fool: he openeth not his mouth in the gate.

24:8He that deviseth to do evil shall be called a mischievous person.

24:9The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.

24:10If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.

24:11If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;

24:12If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?

24:13My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste:

24:14So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.

24:15Lay not wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; spoil not his resting place:

24:16For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.

24:17Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth:

24:18Lest the LORD see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.

24:19Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked;

24:20For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out.

24:21My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change:

24:22For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?

24:23These things also belong to the wise. It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment.

24:24He that saith unto the wicked, Thou art righteous; him shall the people curse, nations shall abhor him:

24:25But to them that rebuke him shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them.

24:26Every man shall kiss his lips that giveth a right answer.

24:27Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house.

24:28Be not a witness against thy neighbour without cause; and deceive not with thy lips.

24:29Say not, I will do so to him as he hath done to me: I will render to the man according to his work.

24:30I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding;

24:31And, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down.

24:32Then I saw, and considered it well: I looked upon it, and received instruction.

24:33Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:

24:34So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.

27:11My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him that reproacheth me.

28:7Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.

29:3Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance.

31:1The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him.

31:2What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows?

31:3Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.

Jeremiah (Author Jeremiah)

22:18Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah; They shall not lament for him, saying, Ah my brother! or, Ah sister! they shall not lament for him, saying, Ah lord! or, Ah his glory!

22:19He shall be buried with the burial of an ass, drawn and cast forth beyond the gates of Jerusalem.

22:20Go up to Lebanon, and cry; and lift up thy voice in Bashan, and cry from the passages: for all thy lovers are destroyed.

22:21I spake unto thee in thy prosperity; but thou saidst, I will not hear. This hath been thy manner from thy youth, that thou obeyedst not my voice.

Matthew (Author Matthew)

19:16And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

19:17And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

19:18He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,

19:19Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

19:20The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

19:21Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

19:22But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

Mark (Author John Mark)

10:17And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?

10:18And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

10:19Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.

10:20And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.

10:21Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

10:22And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

Luke (Author Luke)

15:11And he said, A certain man had two sons:

15:12And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.

15:13And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.

15:14And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.

15:15And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

15:16And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.

15:17And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!

15:18I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,

15:19And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.

15:20And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

15:21And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.

15:22But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:

15:23And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:

15:24For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.

15:25Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.

15:26And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.

15:27And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.

15:28And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.

15:29And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:

15:30But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.

15:31And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.

15:32It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

18:18And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

18:19And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.

18:20Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.

18:21And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.

18:22Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

18:23And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.

1 Timothy (Author Paul)

4:12Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

2 Timothy (Author Paul)

2:22Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

2:23But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.

Titus (Author Paul)

2:6Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.

Hebrews (Author Paul)

11:24By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;

11:25Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

11:26Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

1 John (Author John)

2:13I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.

2:14I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

2:15Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

2:16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

2:17And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
