1 The heavens God's glory record.
The expanse tells His work abroad. (1.1)
2 Day unto day gushes forth words,
Night unto night knowledge. (2.1)
3  There is no speech, there are no words,
in which their voice cannot be heard.
4 Their line's gone forth through all the earth,
their speech to the world's end.
In them He pitched tent for the sun,
5 who goeth forth like a bridegroom, (5.1)
rejoicing as a mighty one,
who has a race to run.
6 His going forth is to the end
of heaven and then back again. (6.1)
And from his heat, nothing's hidden,
he shines on every one. (6.2)
7 How perfect the law of the LORD.
The soul by it's being restored.
The Lord's testimonies are sure,
making the simple wise.
8  How right the precepts of the LORD,
the heart rejoicing more and more.
The Lord's commandments, they are pure,
enlightening the eyes.
9  How clean is the fear of the LORD.
Forevermore it shall endure.
How true the judgments of the LORD, (9.1)
righteous altogether.
10  They're more to be desired than gold,
yea, more precious than much fine gold.
Than honey and the honeycomb,
they are sweeter by far.
11  Also by them Your servant's warned.
In keeping them there's great reward.
12 Who can discern where he's gone wrong?
Cleanse me from what's hidden.
13  Your servant keep from presumption,
o'er me to not have dominion.
Then I'll be perfect, innocent
when the many transgress.
14  My meditation and my words
out of my heart and mouth, O Lord,
in Your presence be a pleasure,
my Rock and Redeemer.

Matt 5:6  Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for  righteousness , for they shall be satisfied.
17  Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have not come to abolish, but to fulfill.  18  For truly I say to you, Until heaven and earth pass away, one iota or one serif shall by no means pass away from the law until all come to pass.  19  Therefore whoever annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called the least in the kingdom of the heavens; but whoever practices and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of the heavens.  20  For I say to you that unless your  righteousness  surpasses that of the  scribes  and Pharisees, you shall by no means enter into the kingdom of the heavens.
Rom 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven upon all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who hold down the truth in unrighteousness,  19  Because that which is known of God is manifest within them, for God manifested it to them.  20  For the invisible things of Him, both His eternal power and divine characteristics, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being perceived by the things made, so that they would be without excuse;  21  Because though they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or thank Him, but rather became vain in their reasonings, and their heart, lacking understanding, was darkened.  22   Professing to be wise, they became fools
2:13  (For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.  14  For when Gentiles, who have no law,  do   by   nature  the things of the law, these, though they have no law, are a law to themselves,  15  Who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing  witness with it and their reasonings, one with the other, accusing or even excusing them)
12:2  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 Tim 3:14  But you, continue in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing from which ones you have learned them  15  And that from a babe you have known the sacred writings, which are able to make you  wise  unto salvation through the faith which is in Christ Jesus.  16  All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for conviction, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,  17  That the man of God may be complete, fully equipped for every good work.
Eph 6:1  Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is  right .  2  "Honor your father and mother,'' which is the first commandment with a promise,  3  "That it may be well with you and that you may live long on the earth.''
2 Cor 1:12   For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward
Proverbs 29:6  In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.
Matt 5:8  Blessed are the  pure  in heart, for they shall see God.
Psalms 103:18  To such as keep  his covenant, and to those that remember his precepts to do them.
Psalms 119:4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.
Psalms 119:15 I will meditate in thy precepts and consider thy ways.
Psalms 119:27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts; so I shall meditate of thy wondrous works.
Ps 12:6  The words of the LORD are pure words,
tried as silver is tried,
tested in a furnace of earth,
seven times purified.
1 Jn 4:17  In this has  love  been perfected with us, that we have boldness in the day of the judgment because even as He is, so also are we in this world.
18  There is no fear in  love , but  perfect   love  casts out fear because fear has punishment, and he who fears has not been perfected in  love .
Heb 4:12  For the word of God is living and operative and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit and of joints and marrow, and able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.  
13  And there is no creature that is not manifest before Him, but all things are naked and laid bare to the eyes of  Him to whom we are to give our account.
Acts 8:22  Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray the Lord, if perhaps the thought of thy heart shall be forgiven thee.
Rev 3:17  Because you say, I am wealthy and have become rich and have need of nothing, and do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked,  18  I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined by fire that you may be rich, and white garments that you may be clothed and that the shame of your nakedness may not be manifested, and eyesalve to anoint your eyes that you may see.  19  As many as I love I rebuke and discipline; be zealous therefore and repent.  20  Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, then I will come in to him and dine with him and he with Me.  21  He who overcomes, to him I will give to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat with My Father on His throne.  22  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
Matt 23:25  Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse  the   outside   of   the   cup  and  the  dish, but inwardly they are full  of  extortion and self-indulgence.  26  Blind Pharisee, cleanse first  the  inside  of   the   cup  and  the  dish so that their  outside  also may become clean.  27  Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you resemble white-washed graves, which outwardly appear beautiful but inwardly are full  of  dead men's bones and all uncleanness.  28  So you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inwardly you are full  of  hypocrisy and lawlessness.
Ps 16:6  The lines have fall'n to me in pleasant places, even,  a goodly heritage.
Matt 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to tribulation, and shall kill you; and ye will be hated of all the nations for my name's sake.
10 And then will many be offended, and will deliver one another up, and hate one another;
11 and many false prophets shall arise and shall mislead many;
12 and because lawlessness shall prevail, the love of the many shall grow cold;
13 but he that has endured to the end, he shall be saved.

2 Thes 2:3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,

2 Tim 3:1 But this know, that in the last days difficult times shall be there;
2 for men shall be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, evil speakers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, profane,
3 without natural affection, implacable, slanderers, of unsubdued passions, savage, having no love for what is good,
4 traitors, headlong, of vain pretensions, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God;
5 having a form of piety but denying the power of it: and from these turn away.
6 For of these are they who are getting into houses, and leading captive silly women, laden with sins, led by various lusts,
7 always learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Romans 10:5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
 16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yea, surely, Their voice has gone out into all the earth, and their words to the extremities of the habitable world.
19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.
 20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.
 21 But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.
Proverbs 15:15 All the days of the afflicted are evil, but a good heart is a continual feast.
