Ecclesiastes 12 (KJV)

1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;
2 While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain:




3 In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened,
4 And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of musick shall be brought low;





7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.





9 And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed (pay attention to), and sought out, and set in order many proverbs.
10 The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth.




11 The words of the wise are as goads (pains), and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd.
12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished (warned): of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.





13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Ezekiel 16 (KJV)

8 Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord God, and thou becamest mine.






9 Then washed I thee with water; yea, I throughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil.






10 I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod (graced) thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk.
11 I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands, and a chain on thy neck.
12 And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head.




13 Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom.
14 And thy renown (distinction) went forth among the heathen (unbelievers) for thy beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness (artistry), which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord God.





15 But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot (prostitute) because of thy renown (reputation) , and pouredst out thy fornications (sleeping around, sex) on every one that passed by; his it was.
16 And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places with divers (assorted) colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.
17 Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them,
18 And tookest thy broidered garments, and coveredst them: and thou hast set mine oil and mine incense before them.



19 My meat also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou hast even set it before them for a sweet savour: and thus it was, saith the Lord God.




20 Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter,
21 That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them?





22 And in all thine abominations (a thing that causes disgust or hatred.) and thy whoredoms thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, when thou wast naked and bare, and wast polluted in thy blood.





26 Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased thy whoredoms, to provoke me to anger.






27 Behold, therefore I have stretched out my hand over thee, and have diminished thine ordinary food, and delivered thee unto the will of them that hate thee, the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of thy lewd (lustful) way.
28 Thou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because thou wast unsatiable (uncontrollable) ; yea, thou hast played the harlot (hooker) with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied.





29 Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied therewith.





30 How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord God, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious (arrogant) whorish woman;





35 Wherefore, O harlot (prostitute), hear the word of the Lord:
36 Thus saith the Lord God; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations (curse), and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them;
37 Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness.
38 And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.




39 And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high places: they shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and leave thee naked and bare.
40 They shall also bring up a company against thee, and they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords.
41 And they shall burn thine houses with fire, and execute judgments upon thee in the sight of many women: and I will cause thee to cease from playing the harlot, and thou also shalt give no hire any more.




42 So will I make my fury toward thee to rest, and my jealousy shall depart from thee, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry.
43 Because thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, but hast fretted me in all these things; behold, therefore I also will recompense (recover, return) thy way upon thine head, saith the Lord God: and thou shalt not commit this lewdness above all thine abominations.

Psalm 6 (KJV)


1 O Lord, rebuke (strongly correct) me not in thine anger, neither chasten (humble) me in thy hot displeasure.
2 Have mercy upon me, O Lord; for I am weak: O Lord, heal me; for my bones are vexed (restless).
3 My soul is also sore vexed (restless): but thou, O Lord, how long?






4 Return, O Lord, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.
5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?





6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.
7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth (turns)old because of all mine enemies.






8 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity (wickedness); for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping.
9 The Lord hath heard my supplication (earnest prayer); the Lord will receive my prayer.
10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed (restless): let them return and be ashamed suddenly.
