Psalm 65 (KJV)

4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.

Psalm 64 (KJV)

1 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares (traps, nets) privily (secret); they say, Who shall see them?
6 They search out iniquities (wickedness); they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.

Psalm 63 (KJV)

1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.



6 When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.

Psalm 61 (KJV)

1 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.


3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert (privacy) of thy wings. Selah (a Hebrew word of unknown meaning occurring in the Old Testament psalms, and thought to be a musical direction) .




5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage (inheritance) of those that fear thy name.

Psalm 78 (KJV)

6 That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children:
7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:
8 And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast (unwavering or determined in purpose, loyalty) with God.





38 But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity (wickedness), and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.
39 For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.
40 How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him in the desert!
41 Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.
42 They remembered not his hand, nor the day when he delivered them from the enemy.





49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation (displeasure or annoyance), and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.


72 So he fed them according to the integrity (purity, goodness, honorableness) of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.

Ecclesiastes 7 (KJV)

1 A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth.



2 It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart.


3 Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance (a person's face or facial expression.)
the heart is made better.


4 The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth (joy).


5 It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.


8 Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.


9 Be not hasty (rapid) in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.


10 Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not enquire wisely concerning this.

11 Wisdom is good with an inheritance: and by it there is profit to them that see the sun.
12 For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.


13 Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which he hath made crooked?


14 In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity (misfortune) consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.


15 All things have I seen in the days of my vanity: there is a just man that perisheth in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his life in his wickedness.

Wonder why sometimes, the "good" are taken away sooner?  God gives the ones who do evil time to repent....that is why some are still here on earth.  Stop questioning!  We all should be grateful for God's Mercy, Grace and Compassion on our souls!

Thank You God for giving me time before you redeemed me! :) ~ Karmen


20 For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.


21 Also take no heed unto all words that are spoken; lest thou hear thy servant curse thee:
22 For oftentimes also thine own heart knoweth that thou thyself likewise hast cursed others.

Oh Wow!  God, again, knows us, smh ~ Karmen


25 I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness:
26 And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares (traps) and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her.


29 Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions (plots).
