Proverbs chapter 1

1
The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;
2
To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;
3
To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;
4
To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.
5
A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
6
To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.
7
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
8
My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:
9
For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
10
My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
11
If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:
12
Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:
13
We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:
14
Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:
15
My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:
16
For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.
17
Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.
18
And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.
19
So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.
20
Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:
21
She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,
22
How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
23
Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
24
Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
25
But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
26
I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
27
When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
28
Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
29
For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
30
They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
31
Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
32
For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
33
But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

Proverbs chapter 2

1
My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;
2
So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;
3
Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
4
If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
5
Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
6
For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
7
He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
8
He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.
9
Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.
10
When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;
11
Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:
12
To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;
13
Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;
14
Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked;
15
Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:
16
To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;
17
Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.
18
For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.
19
None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.
20
That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.
21
For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.
22
But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.

Proverbs chapter 3

1
My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:
2
For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
3
Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
4
So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
5
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
8
It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
9
Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
10
So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
11
My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:
12
For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
13
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
14
For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.
15
She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.
16
Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
17
Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
18
She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.
19
The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.
20
By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.
21
My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:
22
So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.
23
Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.
24
When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
25
Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.
26
For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.
27
Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.
28
Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.
29
Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.
30
Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.
31
Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.
32
For the froward is abomination to the LORD: but his secret is with the righteous.
33
The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.
34
Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.
35
The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

Luke chapter 24

1
Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
2
And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
3
And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.
4
And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
5
And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?
6
He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,
7
Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
8
And they remembered his words,
9
And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.
10
It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles.
11
And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.
12
Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.
13
And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs.
14
And they talked together of all these things which had happened.
15
And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.
16
But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.
17
And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?
18
And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?
19
And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:
20
And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.
21
But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.
22
Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;
23
And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.
24
And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.
25
Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
26
Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
27
And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
28
And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.
29
But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.
30
And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.
31
And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
32
And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?
33
And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,
34
Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.
35
And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.
36
And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
37
But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
38
And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
39
Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
40
And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.
41
And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?
42
And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.
43
And he took it, and did eat before them.
44
And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
45
Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
46
And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
47
And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
48
And ye are witnesses of these things.
49
And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
50
And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
51
And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
52
And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:
53
And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
