Psalm 71 (KJV)


1 In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
2 Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline (lean over) thine ear unto me, and save me.
3 Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.





4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
5 For thou art my hope, O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth.
6 By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee.



7 I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.
8 Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.



9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.
10 For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
11 Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.




12 O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
13 Let them be confounded (confused) and consumed that are adversaries (enemies) to my soul; let them be covered with reproach (disgrace)and dishonour that seek my hurt.




14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
15 My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.



16 I will go in the strength of the Lord God: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.



17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.
18 Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.



19 Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee!


20 Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.



21 Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.





22 I will also praise thee with the psaltery (stringed instrument), even thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel.




23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed (repossessed).
24 My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded (confused), for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.

Job 7 (KJV)


1 Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling (a person who works purely for material reward.)?
2 As a servant earnestly desireth the shadow, and as an hireling looketh for the reward of his work:




3 So am I made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome nights are appointed to me.
4 When I lie down, I say, When shall I arise, and the night be gone? and I am full of tossings to and fro unto the dawning of the day.




11 Therefore I will not refrain my mouth; I will speak in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.




13 When I say, My bed shall comfort me, my couch shall ease my complaints;
14 Then thou scarest me with dreams, and terrifiest me through visions:
15 So that my soul chooseth strangling, and death rather than my life.




16 I loathe it; I would not live alway: let me alone; for my days are vanity.
17 What is man, that thou shouldest magnify him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him?
18 And that thou shouldest visit him every morning, and try him every moment?

Job 9 (KJV)

5 Which removeth the mountains, and they know not: which overturneth them in his anger.
6 Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.
7 Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars.
8 Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea.




10 Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.
11 Lo, he goeth by me, and I see him not: he passeth on also, but I perceive him not.




20 If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn (punish) me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse (wicked).
21 Though I were perfect, yet would I not know my soul: I would despise my life.




22 This is one thing, therefore I said it, He destroyeth the perfect and the wicked.






24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he?
25 Now my days are swifter than a post: they flee away, they see no good.
26 They are passed away as the swift ships: as the eagle that hasteth to the prey.
27 If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will leave off my heaviness, and comfort myself:
28 I am afraid of all my sorrows, I know that thou wilt not hold me innocent.
29 If I be wicked, why then labour I in vain?
30 If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean;






32 For he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, and we should come together in judgment.

Job 10 (KJV)


10 My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint upon myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.



12 Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

Job 6 (KJV)

7 The things that my soul refused to touch are as my sorrowful meat.
8 Oh that I might have my request; and that God would grant me the thing that I long for!
9 Even that it would please God to destroy me; that he would let loose his hand, and cut me off!
10 Then should I yet have comfort; yea, I would harden myself in sorrow: let him not spare; for I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.






11 What is my strength, that I should hope? and what is mine end, that I should prolong my life?
12 Is my strength the strength of stones? or is my flesh of brass?
13 Is not my help in me? and is wisdom driven quite from me?






14 To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty.
15 My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, and as the stream of brooks they pass away;
16 Which are blackish by reason of the ice, and wherein the snow is hid:
17 What time they wax (develop) warm, they vanish: when it is hot, they are consumed out of their place.
18 The paths of their way are turned aside; they go to nothing, and perish.
19 The troops of Tema looked, the companies of Sheba waited for them.
20 They were confounded (used for emphasis, especially to express anger or annoyance.)
because they had hoped; they came thither, and were ashamed.






21 For now ye are nothing; ye see my casting down, and are afraid.
22 Did I say, Bring unto me? or, Give a reward for me of your substance (being)?
23 Or, Deliver me from the enemy's hand? or, Redeem (buy back, reclaim) me from the hand of the mighty?






24 Teach me, and I will hold my tongue: and cause me to understand wherein I have erred.
25 How forcible are right words! but what doth your arguing reprove (counsel)?
26 Do ye imagine to reprove (condemn) words, and the speeches of one that is desperate, which are as wind?




Even when it is clear that what you saying is right, let it go.  Don't argue.  Some people speak with an endless tongue.  Train your tongue to stop moving.  Practice self restraint and tame the tongue.  Hard to do, but practice makes perfect :)  Peace is more important than being right. ~ Karmen

Job 29 (KJV)

2 Oh that I were as in months past, as in the days when God preserved me;
3 When his candle shined upon my head, and when by his light I walked through darkness;

Job 21 (KJV)


13 They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave.
14 Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.
15 What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?




16 Lo, their good is not in their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
17 How oft is the candle of the wicked put out! and how oft cometh their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger.




30 That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.

Psalm 77 (KJV)


1 I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.




2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore (pain) ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.





3 I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.




4 Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.




5 I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.




6 I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.





7 Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?
8 Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore?
9 Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.




10 And I said, This is my infirmity (weakness): but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.
11 I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
12 I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.



13 Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?





19 Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.

Matthew 8 (KJV)



26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked (strongly corrected) the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

Ecclesiastes 10 (KJV)

1 Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary (pharmacy) to send forth a stinking savour (sour smell) : so doth a little folly (stupidity, madness) him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour.





2 A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left.
3 Yea also, when he that is a fool walketh by the way, his wisdom faileth him, and he saith to every one that he is a fool.






4 If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for yielding (humbleness) pacifieth (makes peace for) great offences.




12 The words of a wise man's mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow up himself.





14 A fool also is full of words: a man cannot tell what shall be; and what shall be after him, who can tell him?






19 A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things.

Sometimes scriptures are shared to give knowledge or insight.  With this one, King Solomon is referring to what matters in this world.  Celebrations usually involve food and entertainment.  Also, to really enjoy the festivities people offer alcoholic beverages.  With those two it's specifically for enjoyment.  It can not offer much more.  Money on the other hand can do so much more than entertain.  It pays the bills, etc.; it relieves debt which brings peace. You can't go very far in this world without money.  Far, in the sense of success and having access to things you would not have without it.   Money gives people the ability to control and have power.  Even over others.   This is simply dropping knowledge. Of course it will be misinterpreted and twisted to fit Satan's followers and mislead the lost.   This scripture is simple, it is not condoning the love of money it is simply providing insight ~ Karmen





20 Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.

Don't gossip.  Even if it's the truth.  Don't share your inner most thoughts aloud because someone around may hear it and spread the news.  ~  Karmen
