Psalm 28 through David
1 O LORD, my Rock, I call to Thee,
Refuse not to hear me.
Lest if You be silent to me
like the pit-bound I'll be.
2 Hear the voice of my entreaty,
as I cry unto Thee,
as I lift up my hands unto
Thy oracle holy.
3 With wicked, draw me not away,
nor with lawless workers,
While mischief in their hearts holds sway,
they speak peace with neighbors.
4 According to their works give them,
as they dealt with others.
As their hands did, so You give them.
Render them their desert,
5 for the LORD's works they discern not,
nor doing of His hands.
He will throw down and build up not
what they have built on sand.
6 Bless'd be the LORD for He heard my
voice in my entreaty.
7 The LORD's my strength, and shield of mine,
and my heart trusts in Thee.
And helped am I, my heart exults,
from my song Him I'll praise.
8 The LORD, He is His people's strength,
and His Christ's strength to save
9 Save Your people, and bless Your own
and shepherd them, and bear them up
Jn 17:14 I have given them Your word, and the world has hated them , because they are not of the world even as I am not of the world. 15 I do not ask that You would take them out of the world, but that You would keep them out of the hands of the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth. 18 As you have sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sake I sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.
Eph 5:26 That He might sanctify her , cleansing her by the washing of the water in the word, 27 That He might present the church to Himself glorious, not having spot or wrinkle or any such things, but that she would be holy and without blemish.
Mt 7:22 Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, was it not in Your name that we prophesied, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name did many works of power? 23 And then I will declare to them: I never knew you. Depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness .
1 Cor 3:12 But if anyone builds upon the foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, grass, stubble, 13 The work of each will become manifest; for the day will declare it, because it is revealed by fire, and the fire itself will prove each one's work, of what sort it is. 14 If anyone's work which he has built upon the foundation remains, he will receive a reward; 15 If anyone's work is consumed, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire. 16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If anyone destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him; for the temple of God is holy, and such are you. 18 Let no one deceive himself; if anyone thinks that he is wise among you in this age, let him become foolish that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God; for it is written, ``He grasps the wise in their craftiness''; 20 And again, ``The Lord knows the reasonings of the wise, that they are vain.'' 21 So then let no one boast in men, for all things are yours, 22 Whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or things present or things to come; all are yours,
1Sam 18:20 And Michal Saulís daughter loved David: and they told Saul, and the thing pleased him.
21 And Saul said, I will give him her, that she may be a snare to him, and that the hand of the Philistines may be against him. Wherefore Saul said to David, Thou shalt this day be my son in law in the one of the twain.
22 And Saul commanded his servants, saying, Commune with David secretly, and say, Behold, the king hath delight in thee, and all his servants love thee: now therefore be the kingís son in law.
23 And Saulís servants spake those words in the ears of David. And David said, Seemeth it to you a light thing to be a kingís son in law, seeing that I am a poor man, and lightly esteemed?
