1  The mighty God, even the LORD,
The mighty God, even the LORD,  
has spoken, and called the earth
from the rising of the sun
unto the going down thereof.
 
2 Out of Zion,
 the perfection of beauty, God has shined.
3  Our God shall come.
He shall come and shall not keep si-i-lence.

A fire devours before His face,
and round about tempest rages.
4 He will call to the heavens
from above and to the earth
in order to judge His people.
 
5  Gather My saints,
Gather My saints together unto Me,
those that have made
a covenant with Me by sacrifice.
 
6 And the heavens, they shall declare
His righteousness, for God is judge.
God Himself, is judge. Selah.
7 Listen to Me, My-y people,
and I will spea-eak, O Israel!

And I wi-ill,
 witness in you, I am God, you-our God.
8  For offerings,
I do not reprove you for-or that.

 Your burnt offerings are before Me,
9 I'll accept no bull from your house
nor he-goat out of your folds.
10 for all creatur-ures are Mine,
the cattle on a thousand hills.
 
11 I know each fowl
 of the mountains and the beasts of the field,
They are mine. 12 If
 I were hungry I would not te-ell you!
 
for all the world, i-it is Mine
the world and the fulness thereof,
13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls?
 or dri-ink the bloo-ood of goats?
14 Do offer to God thanksgiving.
 
And pay your vows,
and pay your vows unto the most High
15  And call on Me,
call upon Me, in the day of trouble.
 
I will surely deliver thee.
Also shall ye glorify Me,
16 But to the wicked God says,
What have you to do to with this?
to be defining My statutes?

Should you take My,
Should you take My covenant in your mouth?
17  Seeing you hate
correction, and toss My words behind you.
 
18  When saw a thief, you're pleased with him,
 and cast your lot with adulterers.
19 You loose your mouth for evil
and harness your tongue for deceit.
20 You sit and speak 'gainst your brother.
 
You slander the,
you slander the son of your own mother.
21 These things you've done,
these things you've done, and I kept si-ilence.

You thought that I was just like you,
but I'll show you a thing or two,
and set the things in order
 before your very own eyes.
22 O-o please consider this.

Think on this, you
that forget God, lest I tear in pieces,
and there be none,
and there will be no one who releases.
 
23 The sacrifice of thanksgiving,
this is that which glorifies Me.
And he that orders his way,
I will cause him to see,
to see the salvation of God.

Matt 8:11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.
12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Luke 13:28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.
30 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.
 
Heb 12:22 but ye have come to mount Zion; and to the city of the living God, heavenly Jerusalem; and to myriads of angels,
23 the universal gathering; and to the assembly of the firstborn who are registered in heaven; and to God, judge of all; and to the spirits of just men made perfect;
24 and to Jesus, mediator of a new covenant; and to the blood of sprinkling, speaking better than Abel.
Eph 3:8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, was this grace given, to preach unto the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;
9 and to make all men see what is the dispensation of the mystery which for ages hath been hid in God who created all things;
10 to the intent that now unto the principalities and the powers in the heavenly places might be made known through the church the manifold wisdom of God,
11 according to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself up for her;
26 that he might sanctify her, cleansing her by the washing of water in the word,
27 that he might present the church to himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she should be holy and without blemish.
Rev 21:9 ¶ And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.
10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
 
Rev 19:6  And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude and like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty thunders, saying, Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns.  7  Let us rejoice and exult, and let us give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has  made   herself   ready .  8  And it was given to her that she should be clothed in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteousnesses of the saints.
 
2 Cor 5:10  For we must all be manifested before the  judgment   seat   of   Christ , that each one may receive the things done through the body according to what he has practiced, whether good or bad.  
11  Knowing therefore the fear  of  the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest to God; yet I hope that we are made manifest also in your consciences.
 
Gen 30:23 And she conceived, and bare a son; and said, God hath taken away my reproach:
25:8 Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.
17 And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, an hundred and thirty and seven years: and he gave up the ghost and died; and was gathered unto his people.
 
Ps 27:10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
Isa 11:12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
 
Gen 6:21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.
 
Heb 9:13  For if  the  blood of goats and bulls and  the  ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who are defiled sanctifies to  the  purity of  the  flesh,  14  How much more will  the  blood of Christ, who through  the  eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve  the  living God?  
15  And because of this He is  the  Mediator of a new covenant, so that, death having taken place for redemption of  the  transgressions under  the   first  covenant, those who have been called might receive  the  promise of  the eternal inheritance.  
16  For where there is a testament,  the  death of him who made  the  testament must of necessity be established.  17  For a testament is confirmed in  the  case of  the  dead, since it never has force when he who made  the testament is living.  
18  Hence  neither   was   the   first  covenant initiated without blood;  19  For when every commandment according to  the  law had been spoken by Moses to all  the  people, he took  the  blood of  the  calves and  the  goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both  the  scroll of  the  covenant itself and all  the  people,  20  Saying, ``This is  the  blood of  the  covenant which God has commanded to you.''  21  And both  the  tabernacle and all  the  vessels of  the  service he sprinkled in like manner with  the  blood.  22  And almost all things are purified by blood according to  the  law, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.  
23  It  was  necessary therefore for  the  examples of  the  things in  the  heavens to be purified by these, but  the heavenly things themselves, by better sacrifices than these.  24  For Christ did not enter into a holy place made by hands, a figure of  the  true, but into heaven itself, to appear now before  the  face of God for us;  25  Nor in order that He might offer Himself often, just as  the  high priest enters into  the  Holy of Holies year by year by  the  blood of other creatures; 26  Since then He would have had to suffer often since  the  foundation of  the  world. But now once at  the consummation of  the  ages He has been manifested for  the  putting away of sin through  the  sacrifice of Himself.  27  And inasmuch as it is reserved for men to die once, and after this comes judgment,  28  So Christ also, having been offered once to bear  the  sins of many, will appear a second time to those who eagerly await Him, apart from sin, unto salvation.
 
Rom 12:1  I exhort you therefore, brothers, through  the  compassions of God to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service.  2  And do not be fashioned according to this age, but be transformed by  the  renewing of  the  mind that you may prove what  the  will of God is, that which is good and well pleasing and perfect.
2 Cor 5:14  For  the love of Christ constrains us because we have judged this, that One  died   for   all , therefore  all   died ;  15  And He  died   for   all  that those who live may no longer live to themselves but to Him who  died   for  them and has been raised.
 
Rev 12:1  And a great sign was seen in heaven: a woman clothed with  the  sun, and  the  moon underneath her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars;  2  And she was with child, and she cried out, travailing in birth and being in pain  to  bring forth.  
3  And another sign was seen in heaven; and behold, there was a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems.  4  And his tail drags away  the  third part of  the  stars of heaven, and he cast them  to   the   earth . And  the  dragon stood before  the  woman who was about  to  bring forth, so that when she brings forth he might devour her child.  5  And she brought forth a son, a man-child, who is  to  shepherd all  the  nations with an iron rod; and her child was caught up  to  God and  to  His throne.  
6  And  the  woman fled into  the  wilderness, where she has a place there prepared by God so that they might nourish her there a thousand two hundred and sixty days.  
7  And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels went  to  war with  the  dragon. And  the  dragon warred and his angels.  8  And they did not prevail, neither was their place found any longer in heaven.  
9  And  the  great dragon was cast down,  the  ancient serpent, he who is called  the  Devil and Satan, he who deceives  the  whole inhabited  earth ; he was cast  to   the   earth , and his angels were cast down with him.  10  And I heard a loud voice in heaven saying, Now has come  the  salvation and  the  power and  the  kingdom of our God and  the  authority of His Christ, for  the  accuser of our brothers has been cast down, who accuses them before our God day and night.  11  And they overcame him because of  the  blood of  the  Lamb and because of  the  word of their testimony, and they loved not their soul-life even unto death.  
12  Therefore be glad, O heavens and those who dwell in them.  Woe   to   the   earth  and  the  sea because  the devil has come down  to  you and has great rage, knowing that he has only a short time.
 
Luke 17:7  But which  of  you, having a slave who is plowing or tending sheep, will say to him when he has come in from  the  field, Come immediately and recline at table?  8  Will he not rather say to him, Prepare something that I may dine, and gird yourself and serve me until I eat and drink; and after that you will eat and drink?  9  He does not thank  the  slave because he did  the  things which were ordered, does he?  10  So also you, when you do all  the  things which are ordered you, say, We are unprofitable slaves; we have done what we ought to have done.
 
Romans 16:13  Greet Rufus, chosen in the Lord, and his  mother  as well as mine.
 
Acts 9:31  So then  the  church throughout  the  whole  of  Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace, being built up; and going on in  the   fear   of   the   Lord  and in  the  comfort  of   the  Holy Spirit, it was multiplied.
 
1 Cor 11:18  For first of all, when you come together in the church, I hear that  divisions  exist among you; and some part of it I believe.  19  For there must even be parties among you, that those who are approved may become manifest among you.
 
Col 2:6  As therefore you have received the Christ, Jesus the Lord, walk in Him,  7  Having been rooted and being built up in Him, and being established in the faith even as you were taught, abounding in  thanksgiving .  8  Beware that no one carries you off as spoil through his philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Christ;
2 Cor 4:15  For all things are for your sakes that the grace which has abounded through the greater number may cause the  thanksgiving  to abound to the glory of God.
9:10  Now He who bountifully supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed and cause the fruits of your righteousness to increase.  11  You in everything are being enriched unto all liberality, which works out through us  thanksgiving  to God,  12  Because the ministry of this service is not only filling up the lack of the saints, but is also abounding through many thanksgivings to God.
 
Col 4:2  Persevere in prayer, watching in it with  thanksgiving ,
 
Phil 2:12  So then, my beloved, even as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only but now much rather in my absence,  work   out  your own salvation with fear and trembling;  13  For it is God who operates in you both the willing and the working for His good pleasure.  
14  Do all things without murmurings and reasonings  15  That you may be blameless and guileless, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverted generation, among whom you shine as luminaries in the world,  16  Holding forth the word of life, so that I may have a boast in the day of Christ that I did not run in vain nor labor in vain.
 
Matt 10:29  Are not two  sparrows  sold for an assarion? And not one of them will fall to the earth apart from your Father.
Luke 12:6  Are not five  sparrows  sold for two assaria? And not one of them is forgotten before God.
Jonah 4:11  And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and [also]  much   cattle ?
 
John 12:4  But Judas Iscariot, one of His disciples, who was about to betray Him, said,  5  Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?  6  But he said this not because it mattered to him concerning the poor, but because he was a  thief , and holding the purse, carried off what was put into it.
 
Mark 14:10  And  Judas  Iscariot, one of the twelve, went off to the chief priests to deliver Him up to them.  11  And when they heard this, they rejoiced and promised to give him money. And he sought a way to deliver Him up opportunely.
Luke 22:3  And Satan entered into  Judas  who was called Iscariot and was of the number of the twelve.  4  And he went away and conferred with the chief priests and officers as to how he might deliver Him up to them.  5  And they rejoiced and promised to give him money.  6  And he consented and sought opportunity to deliver Him up to them apart from the crowd.
 
Ps 119:11  Thy   word   have   I   hid  in mine heart, that  I  might not sin against thee.
 
Revelation 14:14 And I saw, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud one sitting like the Son of man, having upon his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
 15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Send thy sickle and reap; for the hour of reaping is come, for the harvest of the earth is dried.
 16 And he that sat on the cloud put his sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.
