Psalms 39


39:1 - I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.

39:2 - I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred.

39:3 - My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I with my tongue,

39:4 - LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is: that I may know how frail I am.

39:5 - Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.

39:6 - Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.

39:7 - And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.

39:8 - Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.

39:9 - I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst it.

39:10 - Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thine hand.

39:11 - When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah.

39:12 - Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.

39:13 - O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.

John 15:1 - 17


15:1 - I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

15:2 - Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

15:3 - Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

15:4 - Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

15:5 - I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

15:6 - If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

15:7 - If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

15:8 - Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

15:9 - As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.

15:10 - If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

15:11 - These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

15:12 - This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

15:13 - Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

15:14 - Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

15:15 - Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

15:16 - Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

15:17 - These things I command you, that ye love one another.
