THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

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

1:1Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

1:2But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

1:3And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

1:4The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

1:5Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

1:6For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

11:5The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.

17:14From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.

17:15As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

32:10Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.

37:17For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.

37:18The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.

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

37:20But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.

37:21The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.

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

37:37Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.

37:38But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.

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

73:1Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.

73:2But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.

73:3For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

73:4For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.

73:5They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.

73:6Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment.

73:7Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.

73:8They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily.

73:9They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.

73:10Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.

73:11And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?

73:12Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.

73:13Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.

73:14For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.

73:15If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children.

73:16When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;

73:17Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.

73:18Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.

73:19How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.

73:20As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.

73:21Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.

73:22So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.

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.

73:27For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.

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.

75:10All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.

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.

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.

125:5As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: but peace shall be upon Israel.

11:5The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.

11:6The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: but transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness.

11:8The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.

11:10When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.

11:11By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

11:18The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.

11:19As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death.

11:20They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the LORD: but such as are upright in their way are his delight.

11:21Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.

11:23The desire of the righteous is only good: but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.

11:31Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.

12:3A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved.

12:5The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.

12:7The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.

12:13The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.

12:21There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief.

12:26The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.

13:6Righteousness keepeth him that is upright in the way: but wickedness overthroweth the sinner.

13:13Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.

13:17A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health.

13:21Evil pursueth sinners: but to the righteous good shall be repayed.

14:19The evil bow before the good; and the wicked at the gates of the righteous.

14:22Do they not err that devise evil? but mercy and truth shall be to them that devise good.

14:32The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death.

15:6In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.

21:18The wicked shall be a ransom for the righteous, and the transgressor for the upright.

21:26He coveteth greedily all the day long: but the righteous giveth and spareth not.

22:5Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.

28:1The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

32:1Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.

32:2And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.

32:3And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken.

32:4The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly.

32:5The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful.

32:6For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

32:7The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.

32:8But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.

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:

65:14Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit.

Malachi (Author Malachi)

3:18Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

Romans (Author Paul)

2:7To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

2:8But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,

2:9Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;

Ephesians (Author Paul)

2:12That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

2:13But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

2:14For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

Philippians (Author Paul)

2:15That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

1 Thessalonians (Author Paul)

5:5Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

5:6Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

5:7For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

5:8But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

Titus (Author Paul)

1:15Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

1 John (Author John)

1:6If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

1:7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

3:3And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

3:4Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

3:5And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

3:6Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.

3:7Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.

3:8He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

3:9Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

3:10In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

3:11For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.

3:12Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.

3:13Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.

3:14We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.

3:15Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.

3:16Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

3:17But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
