Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
I myself am convinced, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, complete in knowledge and competent to instruct one another.
Stop trusting in man, who has but a breath in his nostrils. Of what account is he?
Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.
Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters.
Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body.
We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for your Name is near; men tell of your wonderful deeds.
Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed.
He who despises his neighbor sins, but blessed is he who is kind to the needy.
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Anyone who receives instruction in the word must share all good things with his instructor.
Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage to you.
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.
Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.
Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God-through Jesus Christ our Lord!
I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me.
Seek good, not evil, that you may live. Then the LORD God Almighty will be with you, just as you say he is.
Haughty eyes and a proud heart, the lamp of the wicked, are sin!
Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love.
God looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
O Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man.
