20 Teaching them to observe all things
whatsoever I have commanded you:
and, lo, I am with you always,
even unto the end of the world. Amen.


John 3:5-8 (NIV)

5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you,
no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they
are born of water and the Spirit.
6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit [Or but spirit]
gives birth to spirit. 7 You should not be surprised at my
saying, ‘You [The Greek is plural.] must be born again.’
8 The wind blows wherever it pleases.
You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where
it comes from or where it is going.
So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
[The Greek for Spirit is the same as that for wind.]

5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit,
he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth,
and thou hearest the sound thereof,
but canst not tell whence it cometh,
and whither it goeth:
so is every one that is born of the Spirit.


John 3:16 (NIV)

16 For God so loved the world that he gave
his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him
shall not perish but have eternal life.
17 For God did not send his Son into the world to
condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned,
but whoever does not believe stands condemned
already because they have not believed in the name
of God’s one and only Son.


John 3:16 (KJV)

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave
his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to
condemn the world; but that the world
through him might be saved.

believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

for the good of those who love him, who[i] have been
called according to his purpose.

to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be
the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
30 And those he predestined, he also called;
those he called, he also justified;
those he justified, he also glorified.


Romans 8:28 (KJV)

28 And we know that all things work together
for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose.
29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate
to be conformed to the image of his Son,
that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called:
and whom he called, them he also justified:
and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

who is over all and through all and in all.


Ephesians 4:4-6 (KJV)

who is above all, and through all, and in you all.


1 John 1:1-3 (NIV)

1 That which was from the beginning,
which we have heard,
which we have seen with our eyes,
which we have looked at and our hands have touched—
this we proclaim concerning the Word of life.
2 The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it,
and we proclaim to you the eternal life,
which was with the Father and has appeared to us.
3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard,
so that you also may have fellowship with us.
And our fellowship is with the Father
and with his Son, Jesus Christ.


1 John 1:1-3 (KJV)

1 That which was from the beginning,
which we have heard,
which we have seen with our eyes,
which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled,
of the Word of life;
2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it,
and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life,
which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)
3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you,
that ye also may have fellowship with us:
and truly our fellowship is with the Father,
and with his Son Jesus Christ.


1 John 5:1-12 (NIV)

5 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ
is born of God, and everyone who loves the father
loves his child as well. 2 This is how we know that
we love the children of God: by loving God and
carrying out his commands. 3 In fact, this is love for
God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not
burdensome, 4 for everyone born of God
overcomes the world. This is the victory that has
overcome the world, even our faith.
5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who
believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
6 This is the one who came by water and blood—
Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only,
but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies,
because the Spirit is the truth. 7 For there are three
that testify: 8 the[a] Spirit, the water and the blood;
and the three are in agreement. 9 We accept human
testimony, but God’s testimony is greater because
it is the testimony of God, which he has given
about his Son. 10 Whoever believes in the Son of God
accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God
has made him out to be a liar, because they have not
believed the testimony God has given about his Son.
11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life,
and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life;
whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.


1 John 5:1-12 (KJV)

5 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ
is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him
also that is begotten of him. 2 By this we know that we love the
children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments:
and his commandments are not grievous.
4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world:
and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth
that Jesus is the Son of God?
6 This is he that came by water and blood,
even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and
blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness,
because the Spirit is truth. 7 For there are three that bear
record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost:
and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear
witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood:
and these three agree in one.
9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater:
for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.
10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness
in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar;
because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life,
and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life;
and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.


Proverbs 30:5-6 (NIV)

5 “Every word of God is flawless;
he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.
6 Do not add to his words, or he will
rebuke you and prove you a liar.

5 Every word of God is pure:
he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he
reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.


Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)

10 For we are God’s handiwork,
created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do.


Ephesians 2:10 (KJV)

10 For we are his workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus unto good works,
which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.


1 Thessalonians 2:13 (NIV)

13 And we also thank God continually because,
when you received the word of God,
which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a
human word, but as it actually is, the word of God,
which is indeed at work in you who believe.


1 Thessalonians 2:13 (KJV)

13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing,
because, when ye received the word of God
which ye heard of us, ye received it not as
the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God,
which effectually worketh also in you that believe.


2 Timothy 3:15-17 (NIV)

15 and how from infancy you have known the
Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise
for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,

equipped for every good work


2 Timothy 3:15-17 (KJV)

15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures,
which are able to make thee wise unto salvation
through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may
be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to
obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”


Matthew 28:18-20 (KJV)

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying,
All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever
I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always,
even unto the end of the world. Amen.


Acts 1:8 (NIV)

8 But you will receive power and ability when the
Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be My witnesses
[to tell people about Me] both in Jerusalem and in all Judea,
and Samaria, and even to the ends of the earth.”


Acts 1:8 (KJV)

is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me
both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea,
and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.


Acts 11:23 (NIV)

23 When he arrived and saw what the grace of God
had done, he was glad and encouraged them all to remain
true to the Lord with all their hearts.

and a great number of people were brought to the Lord.


Acts 11:23 (KJV)

23 Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God,
was glad, and exhorted them all,
that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.

and much people was added unto the Lord.


Romans 10:9-15 (NIV)

8 But what does it say? “The word is near you;
it is in your mouth and in your heart,”[Deuteronomy 30:14]
that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim:
9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,”
and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you
believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you
profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says,
“Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”
[Isaiah 28:16; Septuagint] 12 For there is no difference
between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all
and richly blesses all who call on him,
13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord
will be saved.” [Joel 2:32] 14 How, then, can they call
on the one they have not believed in?
And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?
And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent?
As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those
who bring good news!” [Isaiah 52:7]


Romans 10:9-15 (KJV)

8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee,
even in thy mouth, and in thy heart:
that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the
dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth
unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made
unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever
believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew
and the Greek: for the same Lord over all
is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord
shall be saved. 14 How then shall they call on him
in whom they have not believed?
and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard?
and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent?
as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that
preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!


Romans 1:11-12 (NIV)

encouraged by each other’s faith.

to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the

give you the same attitude of mind toward each other
that Christ Jesus had, 6 so that with one mind and one voice
you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Romans 15:4-5 (KJV)

one toward another according to
Christ Jesus: 6 That ye may with one mind and one
mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.


1 Corinthians 12:12 (NIV)

12 For as the body is one, and hath many members,

who belong to the family of believers.

who are of the household of faith.

good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.

ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

as he went up, behold, two men stood by them
in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee,
why stand ye gazing up into heaven?
this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven,
shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.


Acts 2:22-24 (NIV)

22 “Fellow Israelites, listen to this:
Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God
to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which
God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.
23 This man was handed over to you by God’s
deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you,
with the help of wicked men, [Or of those not having
the law (that is, Gentiles)] put him to death by nailing
him to the cross. 24 But God raised him from the dead,
freeing him from the agony of death, because it was
impossible for death to keep its hold on him.


Acts 2:22-24 (KJV)

22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words;
Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God
among you by miracles and wonders and signs,
which God did by him in the midst of you,
as ye yourselves also know:
23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel
and foreknowledge of God,
ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified
and slain: 24 Whom God hath raised up,
having loosed the pains of death: because it was
not possible that he should be holden of it.


Romans 3:19-31 (NIV)

19 Now we know that whatever the law says,
it says to those who are under the law,
so that every mouth may be silenced and
the whole world held accountable to God.
20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous
in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather,
through the law we become conscious of our sin.
21 But now apart from the law the righteousness
of God has been made known, to which the Law
and the Prophets testify. 22 This righteousness is given
through faith in [Or, through the faithfulness of] Jesus Christ
to all who believe. There is no difference between
Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short
of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely
by his grace through the redemption that came by
Christ Jesus. 25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice
of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—
to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate
his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had
left the sins committed beforehand unpunished—
26 he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at
the present time, so as to be just and the one who
justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
27 Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded.
Because of what law? The law that requires works?
No, because of the law that requires faith.
28 For we maintain that a person is justified by faith
apart from the works of the law. 29 Or is God the God
of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles too?
Yes, of Gentiles too, 30 since there is only one God,
who will justify the circumcised by faith and
the uncircumcised through that same faith.
31 Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith?
Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law.


Romans 3:19-31 (KJV)

19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith,
it saith to them who are under the law:
that every mouth may be stopped, and
all the world may become guilty before God.
20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no
flesh be justified in his sight:
for by the laws is the knowledge of sin.
21 But now the righteousness of God without the law
is manifested, being witnessed by the law
and the prophets; 22 Even the righteousness of
God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and
upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
23 For all have sinned, and come short of
the glory of God; 24 Being justified freely by
his grace through the redemption that is in
Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set forth
to be a propitiation through faith in his blood,
to declare his righteousness for the
remission of sins that are past,
through the forbearance of God;
26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness:
that he might be just, and the justifier
of him which believeth in Jesus.
27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded.
By what law? of works?
Nay: but by the law of faith.
28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith
without the deeds of the law. 29 Is he the God of
the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles?
Yes, of the Gentiles also: 30 Seeing it is one God,
which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and
uncircumcision through faith.
31 Do we then make void the law through faith?
God forbid: yea, we establish the law.


Romans 8:1-25 (NIV)

1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who
are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law
of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law
of sin and death. 3 For what the law was powerless to do
because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending
his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a
sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh,
4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might
be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh
but according to the Spirit. 5 Those who live according to
the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires;
but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have
their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
6 The mind governed by the flesh is death,
but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.
7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile
to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so.
8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot
please God. 9 You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh
but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God
lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ,
they do not belong to Christ. 10 But if Christ is in you,
then even though your body is subject to death because of sin,
the Spirit gives life because of righteousness.
11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the
dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead
will also give life to your mortal bodies because
of his Spirit who lives in you. 12 Therefore, brothers and
sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh,
to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the
flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death
the misdeeds of the body, you will live.
14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the
children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not
make you slaves, so that you live in fear again;
rather, the Spirit you received brought about your
adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, [for father]
Father.” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit
that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children,
then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ,
if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may
also share in his glory. 18 I consider that our present sufferings
are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children
of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to
frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one
who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be
liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the
freedom and glory of the children of God.
22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as
in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.
23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits
of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our
adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.
24 For in this hope we were saved.
But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes
for what they already have? 25 But if we hope for what we do
not yet have, we wait for it patiently.


Romans 8:1-25 (KJV)

1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which
are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh,
but after the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in
Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and
death. 3 For what the law could not do, in that it was
weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the
likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 That the righteousness of the law might be
fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh,
but after the Spirit. 5 For they that are after the
flesh do mind the things of the flesh;
but they that are after the Spirit
the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is death;
but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God:
for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot
please God. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in
the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God
dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ,
he is none of his. 10 And if Christ be in you,
the body is dead because of sin; but
the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the
dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead
shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his
Spirit that dwelleth in you. 12 Therefore, brethren,
we are debtors, not to the flesh, to
live after the flesh. 13 For if ye live after the flesh,
ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify
the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God,
they are the sons of God. 15 For ye have not received
the spirit of bondage again to fear;
but ye have received the Spirit of adoption,
whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit,
that we are the children of God: 17 And if children,
then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ;
if so be that we suffer with him, that we may
be also glorified together. 18 For I reckon that the sufferings
of this present time are not worthy to be compared
with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the
manifestation of the sons of God. 20 For the creature
was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of
him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the
creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage
of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth
and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they,
but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit,
even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the
adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope:
for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 25 But if we
hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.


Romans 8:34 (NIV)

34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one.
Christ Jesus who died—more than that,
who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God
and is also interceding for us.


Romans 8:34 (KJV)

34 Who is he that condemneth?
It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again,
who is even at the right hand of God,
who also maketh intercession for us.


Romans 10:8-13 (NIV)

8 But what does it say? “The word is near you;
it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the message
concerning faith that we proclaim:
9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,”
and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you
believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth
that you profess your faith and are saved.
11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will
never be put to shame.” 12 For there is no difference
between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord
of all and richly blesses all who call on him,
13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord
will be saved.”


Romans 10:8-13 (KJV)

8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee,
even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word
of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him
from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart
man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth
confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him
shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between
the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all
is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord
shall be saved.


1 Corinthians14:26 (NIV)

26 What then shall we say, brothers and sisters?
When you come together, each of you has a hymn,
or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue
or an interpretation. Everything must be done
so that the church may be built up.


1 Corinthians14:26 (KJV)

26 How is it then, brethren?
when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm,
hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation,
hath an interpretation. Let all things
be done unto edifying.


1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (NIV)

3 For what I received I passed on to you
as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins
according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried,
that he was raised on the third day according
to the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Cephas,
and then to the Twelve.


1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (KJV)

3 For I delivered unto you first of all that
which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins
according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried,
and that he rose again the third day according
to the scriptures: 5 And that he was seen of Cephas,
then of the twelve:


Ephesians 1:7 (NIV)

3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord
Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly
realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
4 For he chose us in him before the creation
of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.
In love 5 he predestined us for adoption to sonship
through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure
and will— 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which
he has freely given us in the One he loves.
7 In him we have redemption through his blood,
the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the
riches of God’s grace
8 that he lavished on us. With all wisdom
and understanding, 9 he made known to us the
mystery of his will according to his good pleasure,
which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be put into effect
when the times reach their fulfillment—
to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth
under Christ. 11 In him we were also chosen,
having been predestined according to the plan of him
who works out everything in conformity with the
purpose of his will, 12 in order that we, who were the
first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise
of his glory. 13 And you also were included in Christ
when you heard the message of truth, the gospel
of your salvation. When you believed, you were
marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit,
14 who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance
until the redemption of those who are
God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.


Ephesians 1:7 (KJV)

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord
Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual
blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the
foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without
blame before him in love: 5 Having predestinated us unto
the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself,
according to the good pleasure of his will,
6 To the praise of the glory of his grace,
wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
7 In whom we have redemption through his blood,
the forgiveness of sins, according to the
riches of his grace; 8 Wherein he hath abounded
toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will,
according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed
in himself: 10 That in the dispensation of the fulness
of times he might gather together in one all things in
Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth;
even in him: 11 In whom also we have obtained an
inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose
of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first
trusted in Christ. 13 In whom ye also trusted, after that
ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation:
in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed
with that holy Spirit of promise,
14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the
redemption of the purchased possession,
unto the praise of his glory.


Ephesians 5:19 (NIV)

18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery.
Instead, be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one
another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit.
Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord,
20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything,
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.


Ephesians 5:19 (KJV)

18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess;
but be filled with the Spirit; 19 Speaking to yourselves
in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and
the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.


Philippians 2:5-11 (NIV)

5 In your relationships with one another,
have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in very nature of God,
did not consider equality with God something
to be used to his own advantage;
7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very
nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
8 And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death —
even death on a cross! 9 Therefore God exalted him
to the highest place and gave him the name
that is above every name, 10 that at the name of
Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth
and under the earth, 11 and every tongue acknowledge
that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.


Philippians 2:5-11 (KJV)

5 Let this mind be in you,
which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not
robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation,
and took upon him the form of a servant,
and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man,
he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death,
even the death of the cross. 9 Wherefore God also hath
highly exalted him, and given him a name
which is above every name: 10 That at the name of
Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things
in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue
should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.


Colossians 2:6-10 (NIV)

6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord,
continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and
built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were
taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
8 See to it that no one takes you captive through
hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends
on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces
of this world rather than on Christ. 9 For in Christ
all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form,
10 and in Christ you have been brought to fullness.
He is the head over every power and authority.


Colossians 2:6-10 (KJV)

6 As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the
Lord, so walk ye in him: 7 Rooted and built up
in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have
been taught, abounding therein with
thanksgiving. 8 Beware lest any man spoil you
through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition
of men, after the rudiments of the world,
and not after Christ. 9 For in him dwelleth
all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
10 And ye are complete in him, which is the
head of all principality and power:


Titus 3:3-8 (NIV)

3 At one time we too were foolish, disobedient,
deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures.
We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another.
4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared,
5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done,
but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing
of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured
out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior,
7 so that, having been justified by his grace,
we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
8 This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress
these things, so that those who have trusted in God
may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good.
These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.


Titus 3:3-8 (KJV)

3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish,
disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures,
living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour
toward man appeared, 5 Not by works of righteousness
which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us,
by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus
Christ our Saviour; 7 That being justified by his grace,
we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
8 This is a faithful saying, and these things I will
that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed
in God might be careful to maintain good works.
These things are good and profitable unto men.


1 Peter 3:13-15 (NIV)

13 Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good?
14 But even if you should suffer for what is right,
you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats;
do not be frightened.” 15 But in your hearts revere
Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer
to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the
hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and
respect, 16 keeping a clear conscience, so that those
who speak maliciously against your good behavior
in Christ may be ashamed of their slander


1 Peter 3:13-15 (KJV)

13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of
that which is good? 14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness'
sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither
be troubled; 15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and
be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh
you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil
of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that
falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.


Hebrews 4:15 (NIV)

15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable
to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one
who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—
yet he did not sin.


Hebrews 4:15 (KJV)

15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be
touched with the feeling of our infirmities;
but was in all points tempted like as we are,
yet without sin.


James 5:13 (NIV)

13 Is anyone among you in trouble?
Let them pray.
Is anyone happy?
Let them sing songs of praise.


James 5:13 (KJV)

13 Is any among you afflicted?
let him pray.
Is any merry?
let him sing psalms.


1 John 1:1-3 (NIV)

1 That which was from the beginning, which we have
heard, which we have seen with our eyes,
which we have looked at and our hands have touched—
this we proclaim concerning the Word of life.
2 The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it,
and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was
with the Father and has appeared to us. 3 We proclaim
to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also
may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is
with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.


1 John 1:1-3 (KJV)

1 That which was from the beginning, which we have
heard, which we have seen with our eyes,
which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled,
of the Word of life; 2 (For the life was manifested,
and we have seen it, and bear witness,
and shew unto you that eternal life, which was
with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3 That which
we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye
also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship
is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
