THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Job (Author Job and/or Moses)

19:25For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

19:26And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:

19:27Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

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

16:5The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

16:6The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.

16:7I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.

16:8I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

16:9Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

18:2The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

18:3I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

18:35Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.

18:36Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.

22:22I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.

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.

26:12My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the LORD.

27:1The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

27:2When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

27:3Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.

27:4One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

27:5For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

27:6And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.

27:13I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

28:6Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.

28:7The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.

28:8The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed.

30:1I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.

30:2O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

30:3O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

30:4Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

30:5For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

30:6And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.

34:1I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

34:2My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

34:3O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.

34:4I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

34:8O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

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

35:28And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.

40:1I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

40:2He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

40:3And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

40:9I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.

54:7For he hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.

57:7My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.

57:8Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.

57:9I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations.

62:1Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.

62:2He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.

66:16Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.

66:17I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.

66:18If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

66:19But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.

66:20Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.

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

71:16I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.

71:17O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.

71:18Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.

71:24My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.

73:23Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.

73:24Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.

73:25Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.

73:26My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

73:28But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.

77:12I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.

89:1I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.

91:2I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

91:3Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

91:4He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

91:5Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

91:6Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

91:7A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

91:8Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

91:9Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

91:10There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

91:11For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

91:12They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

91:13Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

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.

ALEPH.

119:13With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.

119:26I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me thy statutes.

119:27Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.

119:46I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.

119:67Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.

119:71It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.

145:4One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.

145:5I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.

145:6And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness.

145:7They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.

145:10All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee.

145:11They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;

145:12To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.

Daniel (Author Daniel)

4:1Nebuchadnezzar the king, unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you.

4:2I thought it good to shew the signs and wonders that the high God hath wrought toward me.

4:3How great are his signs! and how mighty are his wonders! his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation.

4:4I Nebuchadnezzar was at rest in mine house, and flourishing in my palace:

4:5I saw a dream which made me afraid, and the thoughts upon my bed and the visions of my head troubled me.

4:6Therefore made I a decree to bring in all the wise men of Babylon before me, that they might make known unto me the interpretation of the dream.

4:7Then came in the magicians, the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers: and I told the dream before them; but they did not make known unto me the interpretation thereof.

4:8But at the last Daniel came in before me, whose name was Belteshazzar, according to the name of my god, and in whom is the spirit of the holy gods: and before him I told the dream, saying,

4:9O Belteshazzar, master of the magicians, because I know that the spirit of the holy gods is in thee, and no secret troubleth thee, tell me the visions of my dream that I have seen, and the interpretation thereof.

4:10Thus were the visions of mine head in my bed; I saw, and behold a tree in the midst of the earth, and the height thereof was great.

4:11The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached unto heaven, and the sight thereof to the end of all the earth:

4:12The leaves thereof were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was meat for all: the beasts of the field had shadow under it, and the fowls of the heaven dwelt in the boughs thereof, and all flesh was fed of it.

4:13I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a watcher and an holy one came down from heaven;

4:14He cried aloud, and said thus, Hew down the tree, and cut off his branches, shake off his leaves, and scatter his fruit: let the beasts get away from under it, and the fowls from his branches:

4:15Nevertheless leave the stump of his roots in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts in the grass of the earth:

4:16Let his heart be changed from man's, and let a beast's heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him.

4:17This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.

4:18This dream I king Nebuchadnezzar have seen. Now thou, O Belteshazzar, declare the interpretation thereof, forasmuch as all the wise men of my kingdom are not able to make known unto me the interpretation: but thou art able; for the spirit of the holy gods is in thee.

4:19Then Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, was astonied for one hour, and his thoughts troubled him. The king spake, and said, Belteshazzar, let not the dream, or the interpretation thereof, trouble thee. Belteshazzar answered and said, My lord, the dream be to them that hate thee, and the interpretation thereof to thine enemies.

4:20The tree that thou sawest, which grew, and was strong, whose height reached unto the heaven, and the sight thereof to all the earth;

4:21Whose leaves were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was meat for all; under which the beasts of the field dwelt, and upon whose branches the fowls of the heaven had their habitation:

4:22It is thou, O king, that art grown and become strong: for thy greatness is grown, and reacheth unto heaven, and thy dominion to the end of the earth.

4:23And whereas the king saw a watcher and an holy one coming down from heaven, and saying, Hew the tree down, and destroy it; yet leave the stump of the roots thereof in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts of the field, till seven times pass over him;

4:24This is the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree of the most High, which is come upon my lord the king:

4:25That they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and they shall wet thee with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over thee, till thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.

4:26And whereas they commanded to leave the stump of the tree roots; thy kingdom shall be sure unto thee, after that thou shalt have known that the heavens do rule.

4:27Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and break off thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquillity.

4:28All this came upon the king Nebuchadnezzar.

4:29At the end of twelve months he walked in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon.

4:30The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?

4:31While the word was in the king's mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee.

4:32And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.

4:33The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws.

4:34And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:

4:35And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?

4:36At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellors and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me.

4:37Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.

John (Author John)

9:17They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.

9:30The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes.

9:31Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.

9:32Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind.

9:33If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.

Acts (Author Luke)

2:4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

2:5And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

2:6Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

2:7And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?

2:8And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?

2:9Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,

2:10Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,

2:11Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.

3:15And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.

4:18And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.

4:19But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye.

4:20For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.

5:31Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

5:32And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

13:31And he was seen many days of them which came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses unto the people.
